This footage is a proof of concept and next sample from our new, custom-built camera system for shooting ultra-high resolution motion-controlled timelapse suited for full dome (Omnimax) projections.
This is a DOWNSCALED preview. The original footage resolution is 7500 x 7500 px and is also available as a 8K (8192x8192) Dome Master.
The camera setup consists of a Hartblei Hcam-1 camera (bit.ly/hcam2), and in this particular case the Leaf Aptus 12 80MP Digiback. As for the lens we used the new Canon 8-15mm which is an outstanding fisheye comparing to EVERYTHING that was on the market before. The Canon with this back was used at 12 mils, with other backs we plan on using it at around 14-15 mils. Camera setup is motion-controlled using DitoGear OmniSlider Servo.
With this camera setup we're able to capture equidistance mapping hemispherical timelapse shots of ultra high quality and extreme resolutions ranging from 4K (4096x4096) to almost 8K (7500x7500) suited for most demanding fulldome projects.
The sequences were captured during our third rig testing session in Poland in March, 2012. The weather was not particularly suitable for shooting mind blowing footage and time was short, but the results definitely show the quality of 8K and serve the purpose of showcasing the technology capabilities.
Full resolution stills and Dome Masters are available upon request (please write to paco / at/ lookycreative.com)
Many thanks to our technology alliance partner, Stefan Steib of Hartblei.
