Default using 70-300 and e-520 in video

I have been experimenting with taking pictures of birds in flight with the 70-700 and e520 combo...
It's tricky without good light, but I've had some lately so I have been mixing them into my latest little vid on youtube. Luckily the camcorder and 70-300 have the same kind of focal length so I may experiment further.
they are at 2 minutes 6 seconds...
I think its quite a nice way of using photos ...

I'm really surprized you can do that with the 520. Probably because I'm still with the 500. I liked your presentation a lot. Loved all the animals and birds.

I never got up into that part of the Isles, it really looks quite dramatic. Did a lot of hiking in Wales, mostly North Wales, Snowdonia and the coast. Had some "fun times" hiking the Black Mountains but didn't have a choice then, when I was in the Paras.

I'm up in the Pacific Northwest now among the wildlife here. Plenty of Bald Eagles around and deer in the garden daily.

Got the urge, next time we're in the UK to visit Mull now. Damn you..!!!!

Any more to show? I'd like to see them if you have.

Default Your Isle of Mull video

That was really excellent! Visually beautiful--including the stills--with a fine and interesting narration.

I have the 520 and the 70-300; now all I need is a trip to my ancestral Scotland.

Thank you for sharing.
