Shot on 4k and 1080P Black Magic Cinema Cameras, Canon Mark V plus my on the go Canon7D stabilized using DJI Ronin MX – Lenses – SIGMA, Rokinon and Cinematics Cine 1.4. I prefer to use very fast lenses as it’s definitely with the extra money. Smooth clean video is awesome when shooting fast sports motion with my aperture set between 90 and 180. This will help to get rid of the motion blur but you will have to compensate by blasting your ISO pretty high on the Black Magic Cinema Cameras. Auto is fine if you are in a well lit stadium. Always shoot film, not video using Pro Res 4:22 Codec, Progressive is smooth and will give you motion picture quality footage.
My Lenses vary from 18 – 35mm all the up to 600mm. I switch out my lenses often to capture extreme closeups using my 70 – 350mm Cinematics Lens. The gears are stripped out as the lens is custom which allows for your fingers to glide and rotate between zoom and focus. So nice! Forget 2 operators on the Lens, I love doing it myself.
The drones shots were shot in 4K using my Yuneec Typhoon H. I ditched my DJI Drones one by one as the landing gear would always get in the way of my shots. Yuneec has a fluid 360 degree gimbal with landing gear that retracts and allows for a smooth 360 degree axis jib shot while you rotate the gimbal and yaw. Priceless!
Yes Yes! I am a cinematic sports geek and I have a blast over coming issues on the field and will light and weather. You never know when your going to get that perfect play and timeless motion!
