Watch this leopard attack... and LISTEN to the Canons!!
« on: October 07, 2012, 06:52:48 AM »
This video has been posted on The Blaze of a Leopard attack on Impalas.  It was filmed with a Go-Pro cam mounted to a vehicle.  The cool thing is to listen to the unmistakable alert sound of Canon cameras indicating AF and either a 1D Mk IV, or 1DX hammering away during the attack.  Awesome video!

Sounds like the camera really firing off came late to the party after the leopard took down the impala.  Goes to show that all the fancy specs in the world cant make a good image.  It's whats behind the camera that counts....

Also, could be a Nikon, etc...

No, I'm sure it's Canon. The Nikon burst modes sound slightly different. Also the AF lock sound is definitely Canon.

You're right about "late to the party" though. I thought the same thing. The folks in the safari vehicle must have been on Siesta time... like the leopard until it went into its own "burst mode"!
