Here's a Whooper Swan:

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=2019366396

The footage is a bit shaky. We had strong North-easterly winds at the time. We don't usually get swans on this island. This one may be in Sweden now ;-)

The footage was filmed at 50i but I didn't get good frame grabs on this setting. (see first attached image). I now film at 25p (usually with the shutter at 1/50s). This seems to give better still images (second image).

LOL, I will say hello from you Grant when I meet him/her :-)

Nice footage by the way, looks like they behave almost the same as the Mute Swan albeit some more shy I think.

Grant/Per,

A very nice looking swan. Appears to have a slightly shorter neck than our mute swans here.

the wind looks kind of normal for here!!

for taking stills out of footage, if it is 50 or 60 i , it is important to deinterlace it before you draw your image out of it! I know better and I shot a wedding at 60 i 4:3 for the couple and then realized afterwards I forgot to de interlace it, hence on the video the stills vibrate between the two images!! I always shoot P, only for the reason that it gives me the look I like best.

I will be out with the gl2 and try to get some snow goose footage tomarrow. Apparently they are staging about 25 miles ne of me.
