5D HD with a wind-up torch providing all the light...

This is just a bit of a test. I shot it last night at the village pond, where all the toads have come to mate. It was late, dark, wet, and all done hand-held with Helen shining the torch for me.



Next time I'll try to do better.

 Its nice that Helen carried the torch for you. 
Not sure what to say about the mating toads, but the quality of the video is pretty decent.

I went to the pond yesterday afternoon. This time with a bigger lens and a tripod. The video is more about the sound of the toads than the images, but if you watch it carefully you'll notice a lot of ripples in the water. Each one is a toad.


At night the pond looks like this:

During the day, and with a bigger lens, you get this:

That's the 70-200 f2.8.
The IS was switched off as it gets picked up on the microphone (and the camera was on a tripod). The video is compressed to make the file size a bit more manageable when uploading to youtube.
