Good video Ronak!

Thanks theyyamdancer for watching & liking the video.

Wanted to keep natural sound of the lizard walking on dry leaves. Will experiment with music in future videos.

Thanks again.

Ronak.

Ronak, as mentioned earlier, that video is really good! Again the same question here - did you use a tripod? I was thinking of using a tripod next time when I video shoot, I am told the shake can be reduced considerably, but carrying it along is a real pain.

I have subscribed to the videos/updates on your channel & hope to get regular updates. All the best to you and Jetal.

Ronak, I liked the video and more than video I liked the idea of launching channel!

Naveena, IMHO, tripod was not used in this video.

It is a good idea to use tripod while doing wild but I would go for monopod as it is easier to handle.

BTW, I am not in videography line.

Prakaant, I had to google what that 'IMHO' meant!! I was wondering if you were angry with me and hence writing something in code language! Phew, this is what happens if one tries to watch too much of Bond movies...unnecessarily start suspecting! Ofcourse I got the full form of IMHO from our 'Google bhai' .

Thanks for that info..I don't have a monopod. I too am not very keen on video shooting, but sometimes the live action would be more entertaining than just the photographs, isn't it?

@naveena, thanks for watching the video & subscribing to the channel. Expect regular uploads (around one new video per week) except Diwali week when wife & me are headed to Palolem. Your tripod question is already answered by Prakaant, still will answer it at the end of post.

@Prakaant, thanks for watching the video & you are right no tripod was used while shooting the video.

@kunal s & @Duronto Jajabar, thanks for watching & liking the video & the channel. Will upload one more video in a day or two. Will post a link on this thread when done.

I have never used a tripod for taking videos & photos. It is very difficult to carry a tripod while you are on the move in a wildlife area (Like SGNP or Karnala) with you camera & a back pack. As mentioned by Prakaant a monopod is much lighter & easier to carry around. While in tiger reserves where you have to go for safari rounds in gypsies tripod usage is next to impossible (because of it's three legs) unless you have the whole gypsy to yourself & the owner is ready to remove the middle seat. It's good to have a monopod during gypsy safaris since when your gypsy is stationary you can keep the monopod on the ground level & shoot without shake. Jetal did try this at our last visit to Tadoba in April 2012 with our Uncle's monopod. We might buy a monopod in near future. One more thing which can be very useful during gypsy safaris is the bean bag. Both of us used it during Daroji, Velavadar & Tadoba & were very much happy with the results. We carry the bean bag empty & fill it up with rice grains which we buy locally & at the end give the grains to the guide or some other needy person. One more thing I do is to take pictures & videos by looking from my view finder of Panasonic FZ 35 rather than the display screen. This helps in considerable shake reduction.

Thanks you all for your encouragement.

Ronak.

That's why mods keep on reminding not to use abbreviations.

Again IMHO , it would even be a good idea to use it in wildlife photography. It helps during waiting period.

Thanks Ronak for that clarification. I had heard & read that people used bean bag during wildlife photography. But filling it with 'rice grains'..that's something new I have learnt today! But the bean bag must be really a small one? We have a big bean bag at home which is in regular use. Carrying it along during our drive wouldn't be a problem only trying to buy 'rice grains' to fill it up when required would be a real tough task ! Nevertheless, the idea is very appealing!

Prakaant, when I don't get the abbreviations, I feel I have grown old , need to keep an eye on my daughter's "sms'es"...I may get to learn a lot - If I survive once she comes to know that I am checking her messages.

This bean bag is really small. Still it can carry 7- 8 kgs of rice grains. This is how it looks like. Price ranges from around Rs. 300 - 800.

Seems like a good idea to carry one of these! Also Rwe had once mentioned sometime back to carry a bag which could be filled with sand and used exactly like a 'bean bag'! I will try out all these techniques if I get to go on a trip . Thanks Ronak for that idea.
