Filming underwater (without a mask and flippers!) has been going on apace -in spite of the recent lack of water. Although we are used to the quality of our DJI drone cameras, we are still blown away by the imaging performance and the robust build of our tiny OSMO ACTION cameras. Recent 4K 60fps video shots of DIPPERS hunting their natural prey underwater look just as they should - STUNNING
RASPBERRY PI CAMERA
Our Raspberry Pi camera, installed in an artificial otter holt, was washed out by floods. Not deterred, a new Raspberry Pi HQ version has been refitted. Want to see how we built it and how it works - go to our blog page for the info
FRESH WATER HABITATS ARE IMPORTANT

We as Ibex Films, feel very strongly about the need to protect all sources of FRESH WATER....
...and all of the creatures that can be found in and around this most amazing of liquids.
WATER'S PROPERTIES are mind blowing and over the past few years we have been filming the diversity of life in FRESH WATER and the surrounding habitats it protects.
We are using our cameras, from the mighty RED to the tiny OSMOs and Raspberry Pi's, to show water's best and least known residents and visitors and, unfortunately, the problems with pollution, drainage and climate change.
DANDELIONS, DAISIES, BUTTERCUPS AND MANY MORE OF OUR WILDFLOWERS - PLEASE don't treat them as weeds. Not only are they very beautiful flowers but they are also extremely important to bees and other insects and later, seed eating birds such as goldfinches, greenfinches and redpolls will visit to take the seeds.
It's also a very good reason not to cut your lawn - just sit back and watch nature take advantage.
Put away the mower and lock up the "weed" killer - it really is worth it.
