Recorded in Amazonia within Ecuador. Comparing to other Eco zones, there are more Riodinidae species. However, many of them behaves like Celaenorrhinus sp. in Asia. During the day, they like to stay under the leaves. Shooting them with traditional DSLR is not very suitable. To avoid missing huge amount of Riodinidae species, we need to pick some equipment specifically. During the trip, I used Canon G11 with the articulating screen.
攝於厄瓜多爾的亞馬遜林區. 相比其他地區, 亞馬遜林區有相當多的蜆蝶科蝴蝶. 不過習性上, 很像亞洲這邊的星弄蝶, 日間愛停在葉片下. 拍攝這些蝴蝶時, 使用傳統單反機反而很無力. 為了不錯失大量蜆蝶科蝴蝶, 在選用器材上確實需要採取針對性的. 這次採用的相機, 是可以掀出螢幕的Canon G11.
Yesterday, I shared the low profile Satyrinae butterfly. Today, let us take a more eye catching Riodininae. Ancyluris aulestes was showing some dazzling blue color under the sunlight. It was recorded in the Amazonia within Ecuador.
昨天分享了不起眼的高海拔眼蝶. 今天來一款華麗一點的蜆蝶. 這Ancyluris aulestes, 在陽光下就會閃閃發光, 攝於厄瓜多爾境內的亞馬遜林區.

Previously, I created some high quality 4K video clips with Nikon V2 camera. While the buffer depth of Nikon V2 was 60 frames regardless of frame rate, it could not be used for shooting continuous 4K video.
Now, with Panasonic GH4, I can shoot 4K video directly and continuously. The workflow is clearly more convenient than shooting with Nikon V2. Quality-wise, the RAW photo based video from Nikon V2 was unbeatable. However, the compressed video format of GH4 offers a clear advantage in lower consumption of storage space.
GH4 records 4K video in the consumer grade YUV420 format. That mean, the video contains full 4K monochrome video with color information in full HD quality. It may not match those broadcast grade 4K products, but the quality is respectable. The bottomline is, you will get nearly flawless video and significant improvement over GH2/GH3 on full HD monitor.
Here is a demo clip I recorded:
