Hello macui,



We watched the video. Good footage of the finches. Next time add some movement by zooming up upon one or two finches then back out to the group. Make the movement slow and steady which will allow for the tranquility of the birds to continue for the viewer. Too sudden of a movement will be harmful to the tone of the footage.
We would also like say that you could add some soft background music to accompany the chirping birds. That would add some depth to the footage. Also, by moving the camera to a different position and shooting would give the viewer a second angle to view the pretty birds. 
Overall, good job. We're glad you've got a new camera...keep shooting!
