Paid a quick visit to Southend-on-Sea during an unseasonably warm (19C) few days in march 2022. The sun heated ground rising through the cooler air caused a lot of heat haze. The visible distance out to sea was also affected which can be seen in the shots of the mile long pier for which Southend is famous.
Shot with the Panasonic S1 and the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports Lens. All shots were using a fixed tripod but the appearance of sometimes significant movement and distortion was introduced by the rising warm air which in turn causes softening of the image.
The main challenge with shooting video with a long lens is the weather conditions. Heat haze and the wind have ruined many shots for me. Overcast days without wind is the ideal shooting conditions.
