One thing that works well when filming birds at pitch and in a stoop is, before the flight, zoom in on an object that is away maybe 1/3 - 1/2 km (like maybe the roof tops in the last video) and let the camera autofocus on that point. Then without changing anything, switch to manual focus. Then when you zoom back out a bit, you will be basically in focus all the time out to that distance. This will keep you from losing the falcon when the autozoom starts driving around when the falcon is up high.

I look forward to seeing more flights and thanks for sharing!
Hi Tanner
Thank You for your advice.
If I would have a professional film camera, your advice would be helpfull. I use my smartfon Samsung galaxy S III only. I think quality is very good for device like this. And is very handy as well.

First and second year he was carrying by my mistake. This year sometimes he is mantling a bit, but does not try to carry, but I'm very carefull about that.

Hello
Well, after a while, tiercel killed snipe today. Grasped it in the air and carried it for some distance. But landed on moor, so not too bad. Regards
Eric

I enjoyed your video's. That's the kind of hawking I enjoy most - you, your setter not working too fast, your hawk at a good pitch and perhaps someone running the camera in lovely countryside. Great.

Tony

Flying weight is around 650g its 1.7 1/4.
This day he had a stoop 4 times on 4 different snipes in one flight.
First film from dog work, second is falcon flight. Watch in HD.

Cheers

Good and enjoyable films Eric, must admit i like the nice flat moor as well, ive only ever taken one snipe with a tiercel,but hey very spectacular, im planning to do some snipe hawking with Bern up here in the lakes over xmas with both, perlin and Tiercel, anything else and size becomes an issue. I enjoyed also your setter working, nice looking dog , strange is it not how we all see different things in different dogs, as some comment on how fast the dog is, i myself , like Tony was thinking the reverse, slow and steady,but i suppose its what we all compare it with.. keep it up mate. atb Col
