The Tigers Of Ranthambore With An RX10 III

On extremely short notice, Singapore-based photographer Shannon Heng got a call with an opportunity to photograph and shoot video of the tigers of Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, India. Heng had limited space and decided to pack the Sony RX10 III to shoot both stills and video. The results are impressive to say the least. Below is one of Heng's video clips from the excursion.  

In Heng's Petapixel writeup, there's an extensive description of how he sets up the camera. It's highly detailed and includes his thoughts about both still and 4K video capture. The RX10 III isn't usually Heng's primary camera. Here's what he has to say about how it worked out:

"Like all RX series camera in the Sony stable, it takes good videos up to 4K resolution. At a focal length of 500mm and above, it put a new dimension to wildlife videography. On the safari, there was a vehicle outfitted with a huge tripod, fluid head, and large video camera. There was not much space for the videographer to maneuver. I wonder what his reaction would be if he realized that his Goliath was giving almost the same results as my David." -Shannon Heng
