comment Looking through viewfinder I see subject in small circle instead of large rectangle
@mattdm I'm pretty sure Heropup's answer is correct, it explains the symptoms perfectly (with no focussing screen you would see straight through the lens and hence get a circular view) and is also quite plausible as focussing screens are removed sometimes during service.

comment How to create awesome nature time lapses
@AJHenderson It's certainly less labour intensive if you're working in a remote location and you have a camera which can be programmed to take 100 shots at a predefined time every day. The other option I considered was restraining the plan using fishing line. However I think in reality they just cheated and used the blue screen approach.

That's a very plausible explanation for how these scenes were filmed.

You could simply shoot a huge number of frames and pick the best aligned ones in post, in an automated or semi-automated workflow

comment Does a greater optical zoom range on a lens mean less image quality?
@nneonneo thanks for the info - I tried searching for the price of that lens but couldn't find it.

@Morpho The 300 f/4 is a prime (non-zoom) lens, which is easier to design/build, and can produce quite good image quality at the £1000 price point. You could make a 28-300mm lens that was as good or better than the Canon 300 f/4, but it would be ten times the price. As it is, the Canon 28-300mm is twice the price, and not as good. In general if you want better you have to trade the convenience of a zoom, or pay more for your lens.
