Going High End

A high end client had some commercials to produce. We had the budget to add some PL glass to accompany the 4K images we were going to capture. Translation: time to play with some high end toys!

We shot 4K 30P on a Sony FS5 and mounted Elite PL Primes to the camera with a simple PL to Sony-E adapter. The combo looked pretty sweet. Unfortunately, the rental house sent the wrong adapter. Instead of having one with proper rail support, we had to rig a c-47 (clothes pin) and tape ball to keep things running and safe. Hey, that’s what gaffers are for!
