Limpkin -- Viera Wetlands; Viera, Florida: While in Florida this past January I experiment with the Nikon D7000's video capabilities. It is fabulous. I did discover that manual focus should be used. The autofocus motor sounds are very distracting. To manual focus, a Hoodman loop or similar type loop is essential. I also shot video at the St. Augustine Alligator farm of the Tri-colored Heron nest seen in the last post. I used the hoodman cine loop kit and it worked great. I hope to do, and post more HD video with this fantastic camera!
This is a HD file (1280x720) but it looks no better on the web (blogspot) than the large or medium resolutions that I previously posted. I have left the large resolution posted below so that you can see for yourself. However, the HD file on the computer looks great when played on the computer through i-movie and on a wide screen TV.
Additional note 5:52pm CDT:
I talked with my mac people today and they are suggesting that I post the videos on You Tube. You Ttube can carry the large files without the compression that is applied by blogspot. I will soon post the HD copy to You Tube and then post the link on the blog. Look for the link either later tonight or tomarrow. Bobby
