Here's some more test footage from the FX6 and 200-400mm. Killing two birds with one stone -- lens testing and stock footage acquisition.

Lovely footage, Doug. That's a sharp lens indeed. I'm guessing haze plays a big role when you're fully zoomed in, which makes those shots all the more impressive. You did get a salty look straight to the lens at 1:39. Good thing you were 1/2 mile away.

Thanks for the compliments. I didn't even see the fisherman's look until later in post. Obviously, he knew the camera was aimed right at him, but I was turned away and pretending to be looking at something on my phone, so I don't think he knew I was rolling. When I figured the shot was done, I re-aimed the camera at something else before looking through the viewfinder without ever making eye contact with him. People can never be sure exactly what I'm doing. The key is to never make eye contact. Also, one of the best things about shooting at 120 fps is that I only need to roll for 4 seconds to get a 20 second clip.
