Friday at the Flicks - That Magpie

The first time I have used the 70D hand held for video. The weight of it, a battery pack and a heavy zoom lens took some holding. Even more so as it had to be held away from me so I could see the live view. The mirror is locked up for video.

On reflection it would have been better if I had zoomed out a bit. That would have made for less, or slower camera movement in tracking the bird. I finally got Round Tuit and updated my copy of Corel Video Studio Pro to x6 which is what I used for this video.

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.


  1. You have done an excellent job here. I have stopped trying to hand hold video. I'll have another go now I've seen this.

  2. Thank you Adrian. I don't know how I kept it as steady as I did. Usually with hand held video with light camcorders I'm all over the place. Maybe the sheer weight helps.

    1. TWG. They are always interesting to watch, especially when they find things like peanuts which they bury in the ground.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
