We believe that work should always be fun, that way it's never work. It's always an added bonus when you get to use new and exciting products, of course making it even more fun.
Enter Photo Higher's new Halo 8 aircraft, Halo 2000 gimbal, throw in a Red Epic and Voightlander 20mm lens. Guaranteed to get lots of smiles from the crew. Kim at photohigher New Zealand knew that we would be on the Red booth at BIRTV and rushed us some new kit to fly, nice one fella.
If a bit of kit can look sexy and we all know that it can, then this aircraft and gimbal is a definite 10 for aesthetics. More on how it operates later, but in a word, magical.
Having only one morning to shoot, before needing to be back to set up the booth, we set off at 4am for a sunrise shoot at the Great Wall. Unfortunately the weather didn't help us much but we certainly enjoyed hiking to the top of one of the sections. With only 15 min to shoot before we had to be out of there.
The following shot is 4k but processed down to 720p. When we are back to HK we will try to upload a 4k version
