Yellow Crowned Woodpecker – 7D Video Test

I captured this video of a yellow crowned woodpecker using a Canon 7D and a 400 mm lens at 720p/60 fps.
Location: Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, Haryana, India

Some Thoughts:

The 7D video is in a league of its own with full control over exposure, shutter speed and aperture value.  All EF/EF-S lenses can be used to shoot video’s with IS also being available. The exposure bias can also be changed while shooting the video. The two major downsides of the 7D video implementation are no continuous AF during video’s and the noise of the dial rotation (to change some settings) being recored. But all in all an amazing experience to be able to shoot video’s with any lens attached.
