Hi Birding-Aussers,

Just wanted to see if anyone out there can offer any thoughts.

We are planning a visit to PNG in the future and felt that in order to properly 
record the activities of all those Birds of Paradise which we would hopefully 
see, then some kind of moving image would be more effective than stills. 

Peter, my other half, is quite taken with the idea. He is an experienced bird 
photographer but has never dabbled with "movies" before. It seems that modern 
camcorders (e.g. Panasonic TM900) have really decent zooms and can produce good 
quality material in low light - both essential conditions of bird photography. 

Have any of you tried it?? Was it successful?? Any tip and hints??
