wildlife filming with 300/2.8 and 150/2.0

Started to experiment with film last year. After 7 months of shooting killer whales, dolphins and gannets I made this video of it.

Filmed with Gh2 because of the excellent 60frps for slowmo. The dolphin shots made with 150/2.0 and the close ups of gannets with 300/2.8 and ec20.

I explored part of the North Sea coast in a kayak to photograph the seabirds in their natural habitat. This is really tough for all the equipment since seawater cannot be kept off from it but all equipment survived. Only my GH2 gave me some troubles on my last trip to film killer whales from a fishing vessel (rain, stom and salt water was a bit to much)

Manual focus only. 720p in 60 frames per second for slowmo.
I still need to process all my images, the short film is already there.
Thanks for watching!
