Post How do you shoot BIF (Birds in Flight)
In Tom Lowe’s film “Timescapes”, he takes slow motion video of Pelicans flying and landing over the Salton Sea in CA. As a “newbie” to video, I can’t picture the setup he used. I believe he used one of these options, what do you suggest?

1 – With the camera on a tripod track the bird by looking at the LCD monitor on the back of the camera
2 – With the camera on a tripod track the bird by looking at a large (5-7 inch) external field monitor
3 - Other

Thanks,
Rich

I think he used a RED epic with an external lcd screen on a high quality tripod.
I remember seeing a behind the scenes photo of that shoot.

Thanks for reply, your response makes sense to me. Going to give it a try soon. The Salton Sea isn't too far from me.

A Fluid Video Head is a must. The longer the arm the smother you can pan.
