Musk Ox - Part V

Hello all,
it's winter at Dovrefjell, Norway. The Muskoxen seem to enjoy the falling temperature and snow. Hopefully the video show you some of the beauty but also the extreme conditions.
The low temperature and high wind result in temperature well below -20 degrees Celsius. The camcorder and my fingers was operating very well under this conditions :-)

Per,

I think that is as fine of video/film of wildlife I have ever seen.

Living in the North and filming I can appreciate what it took to get that footage!! Are you shooting an xl2 and your tamaron 300 to get that??

I think Per uses the Sigma 300mm f/2.8 not the Tamron.

Musk Ox - Part 5

Per - Super - It gets better with each edition.

Question; Do use the same lens for long shots and close ups and change
your location, or do you change your lens to the to the standard 20X for
long shots and your 300mm for close shots?

How do you keep from iceing up in these conditions ?

Great work, looking forward to part 6?

Henry, thanks for your replay!

I do a combination with both lenses. the 300mm (2340mm) gives me a very narrow angle of view, approx 1.05 degree!
So, if I want to show the object surrounded by the landscape I use the 20x, with varied focal length. Then to get good close ups or to follow the object at distance I often use the 300mm.
I think you can view by studying the footage where I'm using the 300mm vs 20x. The air waves are much more visible when using the 300mm.

I was born far north in my country and I'm used to snow and cold weather, so it's just a practical issue to protect myself and the equipment from the severe conditions. But things is far from easy under such conditions, every move takes longer time, your fingers are freezing constantly. But when you sit there alone (most norwegians are indoors in front of the fireplace in this weather!), looking at these mammals, thinking that they lived on our planet 50 000 years ago! I get a warm feeling (most people do just before they freeze to death!) and I forget about the cold wind and snow which surround me.

Great stuff again, Per

It's good seeing the changing conditions - although I don't think that I would like to be filming in that weather. I hope the meeting went well.

Per Johan,

That is real winter! I had to put on a jacket just to watch it. That is a real testament to both the camera and operator to work in those conditions.

Great work and dedication to the craft.

Fantastic footage, composition, colours, editing all perfect!

was this filmed at 24 frames per second (24F or 24p) or interlaced (60i or 50i)?

Thanks Dean, I'm i PAL-country, I do most of my footage in 50i.

I have upgraded my equipment and will start to use Canon XLH1 (HDV 1080i) and Canon HV 10 as a B-camcorder. I have not received the XLH1 yet, but the HV 10 gives me an incredible picture.
I'll put some example footage on the web soon.

Hey Per....out of interest why do you choose to shoot mostly in 50i and not 25p?
