Panasonic FZ38/35, playing with my new toy, trying out the video

Some local wildlife provided me with the opportunity to test out the video function on this camera and it is a lot of fun working out how it works. I am particularly impressed with with the Power OIS image stabilization, check out how steady the close up shot of the water bird at the end of the video is. This was taken hand held and you can see how long the focal length of the lens was when the image is zoomed out. I never thought that I could get a shot like that without a tripod.
