Wildlife Video

Gary Detonnancourt

Trustom Pond Wildlife Refuge, RI  You can view this video in HD or 4k.

I've been experimenting with a new lens for my Panasonic GH4, it's the Panasonic 14-140 F/3.5-5.6, and so far I think the lens is a great all-around lens.  It's small, lightweight and sharp, perfect for traveling.  I shot these videos with autofocus which is kind of a no-no in videography but I thought the lens did pretty well with these fast moving ird.  

I've been thinking about doing more wildlife videography and this is like a test video.

Rhode Island Air Show

Gary Detonnancourt

I went to the air show on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 pm when the show ends at about 4 pm.  I know this sound kind of stupid and it felt really stupid when I was stuck in the long line of traffic with the other stupid people trying to get there before the show ended.  However, I did manage to get to a park that was very close and I got to see and photograph the Blue Angels, which made it all worthwhile.

I use the Canon 5D MIII and the Canon 400 mm F/5.6 for these images.  If I had to do it again I would get closer and I would choose the Canon 100-400 mm F/5.6 because when the planes got really close 400 mm was too much zoom and I ended up with a few cut off shots, which you can see below.
