Imers,

Launching video - Monitor Lizard, Corbett

Critics & Comments most welcome.

We plan to upload a new video every week or so, hence if you wish to receive alerts about new uploads then kindly subscribe to the channel.

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. :)

Prakaant Nov 6th, 2012 10:35

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

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. [Blush]

kunal s Nov 6th, 2012 13:54

Hello Ronak,

Congratulations and Kudos To you and your Wife for launching this channel .Awaiting for more Uploads.

Prakaant, :D 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' :D.

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?

shahronakm Nov 7th, 2012 13:22

@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.

naveenamohanrao Nov 7th, 2012 18:09

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 :D! 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. :p:D

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.

Thanks for watching. This was late in the evening at Bijrani zone, safari timing was about to end & we were returning to our Forest Rest House & suddenly this beauty turned up at a distance though. Got really lucky as they say it's easy to sight a tiger in Corbett but very difficult to sight a Jungle cat.

Next video upload would take a little time as Wife & I are headed to Palolem for 8 days. Leaving Saturday night by train. Relaxation, Kayaking, Bird watching, cycling & a bit of work (I have many clients in Goa).

Ronak.

Thanks tripsammy for watching & appreciating the videos. Just back from Palolem. Will upload one more video by end of this week but most probably will be of another place.

Thanks to your trip report that we were inspired to visit Corbett again.

Thanks. It's a very small national park as compared to the tiger reserves. But it's awesome for watching wildlife from up close. Lots of Pelicans, Harriers, Nil Gai (Blue Bull) & if lucky Hyena & Wolf can also be sighted. Yes, we were lucky, will be uploading some more videos in coming day (or months).

Thanks. Uploaded video is a combination of 4 - 5 different videos taken at different times during our 2 1/2 days stay at Velavadar. I have used my Panasonic DMC FZ 35 (with 18x optical zoom) for videos & photos are taken by Jetal (my wife) with Nikon D90 & 80 - 400 mm lens. Blackbuck running & fighting were taken from some distance (say around 30 mtrs or so) & Blackbucks jumping (crossing road) was from around 10 mtrs.

naveenamohanrao Dec 5th, 2012 23:54

Lovely video, Ronak. I did not have this idea of taking videos when we had visited 'Jayamangali Blackbuck Reserve' near Bangalore, a few years ago. Ofcourse I was using Sony powershot then (5x optical zoom :rolleyes::p).

Naveena, thanks for watching. Now that you are better equipped you can take some videos on your next visit to the Blackbuck reserve.

Ronak.

naveenamohanrao Dec 6th, 2012 15:44

Yes Ronak!! I keep planning to visit one of these Black buck Sanctuaries whenever we drive down towards Bangalore. There is one sanctuary of these black beauties, I have seen near Ranebennur. Whenever we drive past Hubli, we see boards with directions towards Ranebennur Blackbuck Sanctuary!

May be sometime soon!

If possible (if some FRH is available) try & stay there overnight. You will love it. Also most of the animals & birds are active during early morning & late evening.

naveenamohanrao Dec 6th, 2012 19:02

Ronak, had things gone as per plans, we would have been at Dandeli during this time! Had thought of staying closer to Anshi forest/FRH! But my FIL was not keeping well and our program changed drastically. Leaving for Bangalore tomorrow morning. May be sometime early next year, we will be doing the Forest stay. Till then I have my 'Mumbai Maika (Mom's house?) - SGNP ;).

Hope your FIL is better & recovering. Enjoy your Bangalore stay. SGNP & it's occupants will miss you when you are in Bangalore. :D

Sorry to keep you all waiting for so long. First I was out of Mumbai then my Grandfather (Mom's Dad) aged 90 years is critically ill & hospitalized hence the delay. Will take some more time.
