Two firsts for me:

1) Shooting a movie of any kind (film or digital). I don't even know how to stop recording (apart from switching off) and have no idea how to edit.

2) Attempting to give access here

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, sunlight, hand-held.

Still frames are posted elsewhere (more to follow).

* With my hearing aid in, and it is set to restore high frequencies lost due to ageing, I could just hear a faint hiss/rustel with my ear about a food from the cricket. There is no way that a kit microphone in a camera would pick that up at shooting distance

Both rather good considering the magnification and it being a first time.


You stop the recording by pushing teh record button again.


My first attempt was with a springtail


Here is where I posted some of mine

Thanks, Alf.

On checking the camera this morning, It seems that delay of a couple of seconds before recording.stopped fooled me into pressing the button again and restarting it. Basic error, sorted. :)

The main reason I shot these was because the crickets so readily behaved normally when I was close to them so I went ahead, unprepared.

Yes, Anurida maritima, apparently running against the current. That would be good set to music. :)

My links are what Googlemail generates when attempting to send the large files. I hesitated to shoot videos previously because I though I would have to host them on one of those sharing sites.
