Experimenting with video-footage (Striated Pardalotes in SE Qld)

Since I filmed the 3 clips I’ve been experimenting with footage from various cameras, a Canon EOS7d_mk2, a Sony A7III and the Sony AX53 Handycam. The first featured will be almost un-edited (Hopefully on these I’ve removed most ‘wobbly’ ‘in and out’ bits, but there are no added ‘effects’)

I welcome any ‘constructive-criticism’, please add comments.

Experimenting with 4K video an a Sony AX53 Handycam, a little disappointed with focus and ‘flatness’ as it was quite bright at time of ‘footage’. Please let me know what you think of these 3 clips.

Will attempt more with different equipment and settings in the ‘near-future’.

    Tripod and camera audio is the finest! Up close is always impressive. Now you need to tell us the comparative costs of this equipment. 😊😘🐥💚
