Surf check with Stéphane James last weekend
#throwback #OverThere

I have a new Sony FS5 ! This is a Super 35 mm professional camera with awesome features and image quality, just a killer compared to my Canon 60D !

Here is the main features :

  • Super 35 mm image sensor
  • 4K internal recording at 3840×2160 100 Mbps 30fps
  • Super Slowmotion 240fps 1080p 10-bit 4:2:2
  • Full HD 1080p 50 Mbps 60fps 10-bit 4:2:2
  • S-log3, S-log2 and S-Gamut3.cine
  • Electronic ND filter
  • Clear image zoom x2

Tested the last two weeks and it’s just stunning !

I have a new Canon 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS !

With an APS-C format camera (like my Canon 60D), it gives me a 160-640 mm thanks to crop factor (focal length multiplied by 1.6). This lens is perfect to shoot surfers !

Can’t wait to use it for my next surf projects ;)

I have a new steadicam !

A steadycam is a camera stabilizator. It mechanically isolates the camera from the operator’s movement. It allows for a smooth shot, even when moving quickly over an uneven surface. You can see the results on my instagram video below.

My steadicam is a Wieldy, a Chinese brand which is a perfect copy of a Glidecam product (the leader on the steadycam market). A Wieldy steady have exactly the same quality than Glidecam, but it is cheaper. You can easily found it on ebay.

Can’t wait to use it for my new video projects ;)
