[dslr] Alternative Way to Capture African Wildlife :)

20 04 2010

Canon EOS 400D + 4 wheel drive RC buggy = interesting shots

With the combination above Will and Matt Burrard-Lucas, has managed to capture great shots  of wildlife in Africa.The BeetleCam as the creator name it, is designed to get really close to animals to capture wide angle shots such as the one below, and also to move around to get better angle.

With this new toy of theirs, they have to learn new tricks too, such as the fact that elephants are weary of this new contraption, and it works better to leave the BeetleCam stationary and let the elephant get closer.
