Well, turned out to be a super nice day so I was inspired to make my version of "Videos for Cats to Watch"

Looks like a beautiful spring day there in northern California, Sidd. But I can definitely see this video driving cats crazy!

Well not such a sunny morning but I tried to record with a Sony RX0 II and Rode video mic in 4k. I think the image is much more crisp.

The volume III looks the sharpest of all, and volume II is sharper than volume I. Maybe just by chance the cameras had a different focal point? In macro mode, are the cameras auto-focus or fixed focus or what? Maybe the lens on the GoPro has a different height than the Sony. Did you have to tilt the cameras?

Are those seeds good to eat?

So many questions.

Yes the GoPro had a different height (based on the stand) than the Sony.

1. Video 1 was GoPro with 52MM macro lens shot in 2.7k 60fps in linear mode. GoPro audio

2. Video 2 was Sony RX0 II with same 52MM macro lens in 4k 30fps. Rode video mic audio

3. Video 3 was Sony RX0 II with no macro lens in 4k 30fps. Rode video mice audio

The Sony does not have auto focus so I think it focused to the edge of the birdseed. Next time I will just place my had where the birds eat from so the camera will focus when the birds land to eat. Also next time I will use a dead cat on the rode mic.

not sure about eating the seed. You might break your teeth.

My bird dog, a German Shorthair Pointer would like those videos also.

That is pretty cool. Where we live we do not have that big of a variety of birds that come to visit but for me it is a pretty cool way to capture some footage. I use a ladder and a plank and some birdseed...

We do seem to have a large crow population so that might keep some of the birds away.

Here is one I thought was kind of funny. The bird kept talking to the camera the whole time it was eating.

The last one was epic. From the Birds Gone Wild series? A friend has 2 cats that watch birds on their large screen Tv. Their pup likes animal shows. Pretty funny to see them watching the Tv. It sits about 2 feet from the floor for their maximum viewing.
