Bird slomo with the 7D's 60 fps

Just trying some bird slow motion via the 7D's 60 fps HDV capture. Here's a pair of Zebra Doves (Geopelia striata), filmed in habitat under sweet early morning light. View in HD if you wish to see how feather detail is resolved.

Gear used - Canon EOS 7D + Sigmonster (Sigma 300-800 DG) + Canon 2x TC, 1600 mm, f/18, 1/125 sec, ISO 320 - 640, Manfrotto 475B/3421 support, captured in 720/60 and overcranked to 720/24p in post process (40% of normal speed). All clips were captured at Paranaque City, Philippines, on November 1, 2009.

Just for kicks, I took one short clip from the above series and slowed it down further to 20% of normal speed. The original 60 fps capture became 12 fps and I used software interpolation to bring it back to 24 fps.


Philippine Wild Birds
Over 260 species photographed in habitat, and counting.

An outstanding video clip bringing a new meaning to the expression "togetherness". The quality and clarity of the footage as always is superb and enhanced by your choice of music. It looks just as good when slowed down further. It is particularly impressive considering the high magnification used. Thanks for sharing.
