Have not been able to do much recently, but here's "Everything's Ducky" for you viewing enjoyment. D7000/300mm AFS f4 & tc1.7E, recorded using the camera's sound out to a rode videomic pro on a 20' cable and separate stand.

I look forward to getting a D7100 so instead of 760mm, it will be at 1200mm, can never have too much focal length for birds. Might need a bigger tripod:)

Increased apparent focal length?

Both are DX cameras and the D7100 has a 1.3X crop mode. How will you get 1200mm?

300mm X TC2III X (1.5 x 1.3)=600mm x 2 = 1200mm

Other combos:

300mm X TC1.7 X (1.5 x 1.3)=510mm x 2 = 1020mm
300mm X TC1.4 X (1.5 x 1.3)=510mm x 2 = 840mm

Since the 1.3 crop is of the center of the image I would expect all of these combinations to be acceptably sharp for video.
