The "new" Magnum PI helicopter filmed with the Cineflex Elite and the ARRI Alexa camera on Oahu. Ron Chapple, Aerial Director of Photography, flew with Film Pilot, Kalei Gregory, to shoot Josh Lang flying the MD500 Magnum helicopter. The new helicopter is owned by Paradise Helicopters, and available for tours and promotions anywhere in Hawaii.
Using frame rates up to 120 FPS with simultaneous recording in both ARRIRAW and ProRes 422HQ, the Cineflex Elite is the perfect system for air-to-air cinematography.
