This week Filmscape has seen the new arrival of a large batch of new cameras, most importantly the new Epic-M cameras from RED Digital Cinema.
With two of the first units in the country, these ground breaking cameras can shoot up to 300fps, output up to 5K resolution and can shoot up to 100fps at 5K. On top of that the unit itself can be stripped back into a fully self-sufficient body, with on small board batteries and solid-state recording.
On top of that, two more Arri Alexas and an Alexa Plus have all arrived and the cameras so no sign of slowing down. Filmscape have supplied dozens of productions these past couple of months on the Alexa including Sket, Cocknets vs Zombies, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret and documentary series Stephen Hawking’s Universe.
They prove to be more and more popular as a robust, high quality and relatively affordable way of shooting almost any kind of production.
Last but not least, four more Sony PMW-F3s have arrived just in time for Pulse Films’ coverage of the iTunes Festival in Camden filming coverage and interviews for bands and artists such as Adele, Manic Street Preachers, Paul Simon, Arctic Monkeys, Beady Eye, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Chase and Status and Moby.
