An interesting article on Daily Mail, which I thought might interest some CR members.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2450381/BBC-fakes-wildlife-shots-time-Veteran-cameraman-claims-species-smaller-rabbits-filmed-custom-built-sets.html

I am an an avid, avid watcher of BBC programing, especially the documentaries. They do show how they get their wildlife shots are done. As a wildlife photographer I find their workflow interesting.

I take the educational content seriously. How they get it, I do not make too much of a fuss over it.

Now, is it a news program? If it isn't then they can stage the heck out of it.

Is it a photo/video contest that disallows any form of staging? If it isn't then they can stage the heck out of it.

People should be more scandalized on the staged nature of "reality TV" and talent/singing contests. ;)

Finally, if you dislike what the BBC is doing then all you have to do is turn the TV off.

=========

We must remember that the health & safety of the production staff should take paramount importance rather than the authenticity. We should also consider that the level of difficulty & budget in making such a production somewhat limit the authenticity.

=========

Earlier this year I was being bugged on "authenticity" and "truthfulness" of wildlife photography and to be honest what other people do is their business. If you're in an organization then you should follow their protocols or else just keep out.

=========

In my mind, why the fuck (pardon the language) would I spend so much money to fight people on how they do their business?

Because at the end of the day, you post or otherwise make public your work some idiot with "good intentions" will appropriate your work for their advocacy without even the decency of either acknowledging you for your time/effort/money or compensating you.

After not shooting birds for almost half a year I'm glad to be back to shooting em.

I stopped down on the sun shot and did it via LiveView. Cameras are cheap, my eyeballs arent.

Guaranteed it will breach the Nikon price. I have yet to see any Nikon or Canon equivalent lens price below the competition if it is newer.

So expect a 800mm IS II that surpases $18,000. I am thinking a nice round $20,000 at 3kg.

Thanks for the reply serendipidy. I strive to educate in as simple a language as possible. I believe that only through education do these animals have a shot of surviving in my lifetime.

Given that both the 2 year old 600 II and 5 year old 800 are both 4 pages long I do not think price is such an issue. ;)

This thread has been way too quiet.

My hope is that Canon will speed up the 135 and add IS to it.

It's a good thing I've already got mine. Any additions like this will add another grand to the price tag. I really don't know what they could do that would improve upon this lens.

135/1.8  or 1.4 with 4 stops of IS? :)

These are my guess.

1D replacement
7D replacement
135/2 replacement
35/1.4 replacement
185/3.5 macro replacement
400/5.6 replacement
100-400 IS replacement

My hope is that Canon will speed up the 135 and add IS to it.
