Thanks for posting this--it was very interesting to watch. Without the foliage, you can really see the dogs work.As promised a link to video of the trial it includes fours seperate cast[/b]
Some of it comes down to luck experience and skill. In agility i know where the dogs are going and can be prepared ahead. There were some runs where I was not in position to get a good shot it is hard if you are not already on a dog to get on the dog while running and trying not to trip as well and other time you have to avoid creating a hinderence to the judge as well. Also perhaps the best run of the week Was by Riley and Gotter Did a Father and daughter combination but it was still to cold out I did not even attmpt to use the Camcorder till saturday afternoon The bunnies were keeping the the heavier cover as well. I'm sure there would have be a lot more run if we let the dogs into the swamp but it does no good if it is impossible to judge because of the cover and lack of mobilty on the human part, the pups don't seem to have a problem unless their ankles get wetGreat video --- too bad we didn't have more rabbits, but it shows what we do at a hunt.[/b]
The autofucus did not help as often the camera would focus on the brush in the forground and not the dogs. So I only shot when they were in less cover. I couldn't figure out how to turn it off. After reading the manual appearently you can't so it is a limitation of the equipment as well.Great video --- too bad we didn't have more rabbits, but it shows what we do at a hunt.[/b]
We ran across dead bunny pieces yesterday. Almost took them home to sew together. Mikey, I'm sure that's not how you got yours???????[/b]
