    I shot a nice little video of a combine harvester here in Oxfordshire about a week ago, first time I had used the 1080P @ 120fps and....it came out in slo-mo! Oh well, a bit of tweaking and I got it back up to speed.

    Nice job. Did you figure out the speed issue?

    Yes - it was using 1080p @120fps! Automatically comes out in slo-mo - so will be using a slower frame rate next time. I was actually about 200 feet up but, again, the 120fps setting sets it to 'zoom' in a bit, so I look closer. The photos (that appear every now and then) show how high I was.

    Drought there also? Looks like tons of top soil blowing away.

    Chaff dust most likely. Combines spew out the waste in the rear like that.

    A 'drought' in England is when it doesn't rain for three days in a row. Seven days and our hose pipes are banned!
