Z50 "Bird in Flight" Nature Video 120fps
8

Went out to the backyard today and saw this little guy working for his lunch! He's so small from a distance I thought it might be a hummingbird (about 1/2 the size of a sparrow.) (Not really BIF - I know )

Shot at 120fps on the Z50 with Tamron 100-400 mostly on tripod at or around 400mm. There's no tracking AF at 120fps but the camera did reasonably well keeping him in focus. The bird was so small and moved so quickly he was quite hard to follow.

Slowed to 20% (24fps) in Vegas Pro 13. Shot with the NL Picture Control (-1 sharpening, -1 saturation, -1 contrast). Slight color grade in post. Camera settings - 1/250th F 7.1 ISO 1600-3200 Daylight WB

BTW - anyone know what kind of bird this is?
