    I was getting some shots for a client and I saw this in the screen. It was in the top corner but I shot it in 4K so I was able to zoom pretty good and get a great shot. Some people have called it fake. I guess you will just have to believe me it was not. I saw him come back a second time later in the video. Here is just the clip where he is right in the camera.

    Crazy. Nice shot.

    What program did you use to crop the video?

    Looks real. I had a hawk circling my P4 on multiple occasions, but it never got that close. One time it started to dive near it and i got it down as fast as i could. It wasnt as close as it might look though, because it is cropped.

    Whoa, that's close.. I've had Hawks circle me several times and had some near misses with some giant pelicans the other day, but never that close.

    What's up with the extra bit of video in the background on the far right of the video? Like something wasn't cropped properly.

    because its punched in. the hawk wasnt close enough to be out of focus. it was 4x further away than it appears.

    That's real. Hawks don't like our birds. They will try to knock them out of the sky. It's happened to me twice now. And no pic to prove it!!!
    But they do attack. Especially if the Hawks are protecting their young.

    Absolutely no way can a Phantom have that fast of a shutter speed to capture the wingtips like that. A real video would have blurred the wingtips.
