Very nice video @@theplainswanderer - thanks for posting it David. I agree completely with the statement at the end of the video.

 

You got some very good Leopard and Black Rhino footage - I particularly like the cross-looking Leopard (the first one). I imagine @@COSMIC RHINO will dig the Rhino footage a lot!

Not just Cosmic who digs the Rhino footage, I also think it's a stunning bit of lighting beautifully captured with a wonderful subject. I enjoyed the whole video, you had some great sightings, the only thing missing is Sir Davids voice telling me what's going on. Thank you for a very pleasurable 10 minutes in my arm chair.

@@theplainswanderer If you don't mind could you tell us what camera/lens combination you use for that.

Hi Big Andy - I principally shoot still photography and the vast majority on the trip was stills taken with my Canon EOS 7D Mark 2

 

However I did shoot some video with the camera - various lens depending how close I was - mainly 100-400 mark 2 - sometimes with 1.4 converter - otherwise a 28-135mm lens.

 

What you see in the video is the reasonably still stuff! What you don't see is the copious shaky stuff I had to cut! I wasn't really set up for video - lots of what I took was from either safari vehicles or our own vehicle - the safari vehicles are the hardest to get into good position even when they pull up - my vehicle a bit easier with window support and beanbag. Hide shots and Okaukeujo ( Rhinos) were with monopod ( again not ideal for video)

 

But I'm no expert, though I must admit I did enjoy shooting video. There were times though when i was so engrossed with stills that I forgot to shoot video at some great moments! But nice to have a momeno of our trip.

 

Many thanks for your comments

 

Regards

@@theplainswanderer very nice video of your safari, and I liked the soundtrack too. The footage of the rhino reflected in the water at night is spectacular.

 

Totally share the sentiments in the closing frames.

You have put together an amazing video from amazing footage, @theplainswanderer ! Two questions:

1. what kind of video processing software have you used?

2. where can we enjoy the photos?

Hi Xelas - I used iskysoft video editor ( for Mac) - available on the app store - about $50.00 and allows lots of great features and extras

 

Some of my images are on safari net already - leopards, hyenas, birds etc - will continue to post
