    Bet you wanted to snap that twig off the tree! Nice clip.
  • David de Groot said:
    Definitely James. I hoped to get him a bit closer, but this was the last I saw of him in a spot that wasn't covered in branches.

    Quite possibly ;-) Dad had my 400D with 70-200+TC attached as well.

    It's a realistic 3D model - nice touch with the OOF and wobble to make it look like real video. But I'm still not convinced these actually exist. :p
