Nice spring day and bees were buzzing in our tree in the back...never shot insects, so wanted to see how the HVX could handle the little buggers.
Shooting bees in a breeze is not the easiest thing... I can imagine what the neighbors were saying as I spastically moved my tripod around to what appeared to them to be a stationary tree. Anyway, here's about a 30 second clip for those interested in how the macro end of the HVX lens works.
Here's the fixed link

Excellent, what was the shutter speed? Hope you did not get stung!

Me too... Sweet sweet looking footage. I think it handled 'em pretty well. hmmm.
Thanks for sharing and love the fast shutter on the slow-mo's. Mine has pretty much been stuck on a fast shutter for a month now... I'm hooked.
I think Mike at Motionzone should send you a PM about that as some stocky fooooootage...

no stings...just a lot of fly bys. :-)
shutter was on 1/1000th...wish it went faster on 24p.

Good stuff! Thanks for sharing!
I can't wait to start shooting with the HVX!
