Hi, guys. I just watched the David Attenborough documentary: Life In The Undergrowth:
Invasion Of The Land.
And I was wondering: What sort of equipment would I need, in order to get that kind of footage? Is it possible with typical modern retail-consumer class A/V hardware; or only at great expense - with professional, specialized gear?
I've included a short clip to illustrate the actual size of some typical subjects; followed by a copy of the entire documentary for your viewing pleasure (if anybody's interested).
Unfortunately, they're both in SD/Lo-Res; but should (hopefully) give you a decent idea of what I'm talking about.
Here's a short clip on YouTube:
(min 144p→360p max)
Here's the full video on Dailymotion:
