The new gear I am talking about is our Sony NEX-FS700RH rig that arrived recently and the sweet Motocross action I am talking about was a sponsors photo shoot with local rider Phillip Bodey at the Top End Moto Cross Club's track out at Palmerston over the weekend.
I had been waiting for the FS700 to become just that little bit more affordable before grabbing one and was delighted that the Christmas sales last year made that happen. Picking one up for a (relative) bargain was a bonus that just sweetened the prospect of plenty of slow motion action footage that can now be planned for this 2015 production season.
The particular session for the weekend was originally planned around a sponsors photo shoot that +Edmund Forman had arranged with Phil, and as usual when I was invited along it evolved into a stills AND video affair ... it inevitably does when we are on HighRPM duties though we just love grabbing the action when the opportunity presents itself, otherwise what kind of media team would we be calling ourselves really?
There are already some more engagements lined up for the FS-700 in the near future and not all of them are motorsports. You'll have to come back to check them out soon!
