    a really long lens in broad daylight….. Your flash isn’t doing anything. Even at night with that long of a lens it would be barely noticeable if at all.

    Great video, nice shots, wish it was warmer here in canada when I’m wading around in the water.
    check out my video “life through my lens intro” on youtube, it’s my first try and I can only get better at filming, I only wish I had $30.000 dollars to spend on a video camera.

    In the video I’m using a canon 1d mark IIn, I started photography with a Pentax K1000. I got serious when I got a Nikon 8008n and a 300mm lens

    I’m sure you meant does the flash scare the animals. well yes and no sometime the reaction from the flash is very good images.

  12. Emily Wolf

    Hi, that is not me in the video…..I avoid swamps.

  18. attilakegyes

    When you standing in a swamp how you cahnge bodies or converters? I didn’t se any of them with you! Not much easier just turn a zoom ring?

    Other question? Why you shooting in continuous mode? Because its sounds better and not cost you, or do you use bracketing?

    Hi SPOTGREEN ,I dont have a zoom, some shots I miss, yes, but I also get some ‘cos I dont have to zoom, so its swings and roundabouts.
    I get a big range of focal lengths with converters and DX & FX bodies .
    I use a 400mm 2.8 prime lens with 1.7x (gives f4.5) & 2.0x (gives f5.6) converters
    With the 2.0x converter and DX body (1.5x sensor) I get 1200mm f5.6 !! awesome.
    Ive got real fast at changing converters and bodies and I get a massive range from 400mm, 600mm, 680mm, 800mm, 1020mm, 1200mm.

    The 100-400mm Canon is a great lens to carry on your should for hand hold while the 500mm is on a tripod. That’s the way I did it for a while.

  24. spotgreeen

    could you tell us your lense selection. I want to get into birding, and am looking at the 100-400mm zoom plus the 500mm canon

  25. minitrob

    get a teleconverter for the 70 to 300. That what i did. 1.5x if it’s a nikon. 140 to 600 mm that what it change it to for me
