I had a very cool trip to Titusville, FL to visit some friends to film together, and have warm weather fun, with some Shuffleboard. We were both running in overdrive and after a few emails decided we needed a break from our screens. So I flew down with my Sony FS7 and support gear for a four-day break.
The plan was film the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch, which was delayed one day, no problem. We missed the Falcon Heavy due to commitments, but the Falcon 9 was very cool. Filming ten miles away I used a Red 300mm lens with the FS7. My friend Doug Jensen used his Sony F55 with Canon 200-400, F4 zoom with 1.4x extender, what a beast of a camera. Having owned the F55 it is an amazing piece of gear, and that lens, wow.
The conditions were perfect with great light just before sunset, at a secret spot with no crowds. Couple of frame grabs here and stock footage available upon request.
Here is my setup for the launch and a couple of days of stock shooting. Great gear.
Very cool shoot, and a great four days with friends. Will be posting clips soon when I have sent stock.
Have fun see you soon
