Three Foxes (A Camera Trap Post)

So here is a post based on what the blog is named after, a camera trap in Cornwall. I had a lot of chicken pieces left over from dinner and...

Lui-Kotale Tour of Camp

Its been a while since I got back from the Congo but I still have some videos to edit and upload. I have just made a short one which is a tour of Lui-Kotale research camp, my home for the whole 9 months (except for 2 nights in the savannah and one in a tree but thats another story). I hope you like this clip showing you how basic camp was but also looking back now it looks very idyllic. I can tell you it is not always that way. This was shot in the afternoon when just myself and Leanne (my field partner) and Cisterbol the cook where in camp. You can sometimes have 8 or so researchers and 4 or 5 local workers. It can become quite loud. But more often than not it is a peaceful camp.

Eye in the Sky: Gopro Edition

My dad has just bought a DJI Phantom FC40  drone and as you can see from my last post I have bought a GoPro HERO3+ BLACK Edition  camera. We decided to attach the camera to the drone and see the results. We where impressed by how stable the drone kept especially as it was a windy night. We have plans of other things to film but for now here is our first flight. I hope you enjoy it.

You may remember a similar previous post of mine when I had bought a £30 drone (link here).

Gopro Birdfeeder

In my last post I mention I had a new GoPro hero3+ black edition and made a small frog video. Today I attached it to a bird feeder to see what the result would be. I was happy with the angle but it started to rain so the birds all left. I hope to do more another day but for now here is a small sample.

Slow Motion Frog

I Recently bought a GoPro hero3+ black edition camera and while trying it out last night I found a small frog in the field. I captured 3 films of him then safely released him back into the grass. I filmed this using the gopro hero black 3+ using the 240fps vga mode and slowing it to 10%. I am happy with the effect but it does reduce image quality. Expect more gopro films once I get to grips with it.
