Shooting Formula 1 at the Italian Grand Prix with the legendary Canon 200mm F1.8 and Blackmagic Pocket 6K

Comment on the forum

I bought the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K recently and decided to take it on a shoot at Monza, to film last weekend’s Formula One race and famous old banking (where sequences for 1966’s John FrankenheimerĀ film Grand Prix were shot). I also had a few stills cameras with me including the Canon EOS RP, and considerably more capable Fuji X-T30 and Samsung’s famous last camera, the NX1, the only good one they ever made. These are super-fast small bodies for travelling light and the NX1 in particular with it’s stunning 4K quality turned out to be perfect for sports photography with the 15fps continuous shooting rate.

Fujifilm hint at 44×33 large format “GFX-H100” filmmaker’s camera / open gate 4K3K

With Canon debuting the C500 II today, demand for a full frame in a C-series body is clearly there but Fujifilm is looking further into to the future. Their X-Trans IV sensor technology has already debuted in the GFX 100 and X-T3 but I can reveal a leaked slide-show shows Fujifilm might be taking the technology much further than we believed…

A large format 44×33 camera optimised for open gate 4K3K RGB (perfect for an anamorphic mode).
