p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Run Cheetah Run


Taking a stab at capturing a running animal...I mostly shoot static landscapes. In the last NatGeo there was a poster of the cheetah running captured using high speed camera. Here is a video for it http://www.vimeo.com/53914149

Here is another behind the scene video with 3 1D X with 70-200 in burst mode
It shows how fast the cheetah is running.

0-60 in 3.4 seconds
0-40 in 3 steps

Here is my attempt...its not as sharp as I like it to be...the images are spotty at best.

Not too bad, but tricky light with shade and sun. Was this a captive animal? Don

I don't think I've ever seen that look in a cheetah's eyes before...talk about being focused on a target...nicely done Sunny.

Nice Sunny,

captive - - is this from San Diego or were you blessed enough to get to go to their natural habitat.

I don't know of anywhere in Africa where Cheetah's can run on green mowed grass they readily chase lures - we have a wildlife park where one of the rangers gets on a bicycle and drags a plastic soda bottle on a string so that photos can be taken. Wait for the all paws in the air moment.....

Awesome pics!

Cool video as well, but I wish they would have shown more footage with the cheetah running at full speed, and show the actual speed of the cheetah. NOT IN SLOW MOTION!! Let's see the actual LIVE REAL FULL SPEED of the cheetah in ACTUAL SPEED!!

Hi Don,
Yes, she is captive. The San Diego wild animal park does the cheetah run.

Nice shots indeed. I wish you had a slight angle it would give the shots so much more perspective.

These stills of a Cheetah running towards you are very interesting and intriguing. I think they are real attention getters.
