Hummingbirds in Slow Motion

I just hung a hummingbird feeder at my apartment and decided it was a great time to experiment with the video from my Sony Rx-100 M3 and slow motion!

It was hard work! Ok, not really. I set the camera up on a tripod next to the feeder and then used my iPad to control the camera and see what was going on from the comfort of my couch. I told you it was tough work! Sadly I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do much with the crummy background, but we will see what happens!

Once it was imported to the computer I did the rudimentary edits, added music and credits with iMovie. It’s still the fastest way for me to edit things.

    I don’t leave home without it John and there are some things that I prefer to use the Sony rather than a DSLR! Now if just had a 500mm version! 🙂
