Shooting close-up video with X-S10 and 70-300mm lens

Yes, for the many of you who Don't Do Video, be aware that this is a video. Relax, it's quite short and there isn't anyone yakking at you.

Back in July I went along to a nature reserve (Aston Rowant, UK) to record some butterflies. I wanted to try out the X-S10's Full HD 120fps mode. When replayed at 50fps, it slows down the action quite a bit. It was a hot afternoon with plenty of insect activity and I was pleased with the results. The stability offered by the combination of IBIS and OIS is impressive and the 70-300 allows decent magnification at a non-intrusive working distance. One downside of high frame rate is - no audio. I recorded some ambient insect noise separately and combined video and audio in post.
