Approximately for 1 week, I watched a pair of great tits their cubs with the camera. Because of the fast movements I did the recordings in high speed (FZ1000) or slow motion (Pocket and YI4k +) in 1080p with 120 fps. Since the FZ1000 with fixed aperture 4.0 captures (not adjustable), it comes here in the telephoto focusing problems (too low depth of field).
I have therefore made the further recordings in 1080p 60fps. 50% slow motion or with Opticel Flow in Edius is also 25% slow motion well feasible. Another advantage is the recording of the original sound, which is not possible with slow motion recordings.


I have permanently installed all 3 cameras in the apple tree.

The installation of the DJI Pocket with the wireless module proved to be very advantageous as the DJI Pocket could be mounted without any alignment. The image adjustment is very easy in the Mimo App.



It is amazing how often - sometimes 20 seconds and even less - the great tits feed the young with food. In order to get a better idea about the speed of the birds, I have shown the real time via an analogue clock at the top right.

Soon I will publish recordings over a longer period. But first I have to edit some TB shots of 3 cameras in Edius.

Nice capture. I am assuming these birds are called Tits?

Hi Udo.

Nice setups and nice shots. This is where something like a Yi or Action can be setup very quickly and with minimum fuss. Great stuff.

Cheers,
Dave.

Really nice results. I've been thinking about doing something similar with the OP and the bird feeders in my backyard.

I think you will be pleased with the results.

I still have something to explain.Although I use the wireless module, I could not use it here.D Cine like is not possible with wireless module, therefore the connection to the iPhone with cable.
The cable in the right to the powerbank

I learned a new word meaning in English. Google was not very helpful ...
