This Flyover Of New York City Filmed In 12K Is Simply Spectacular

Cinematographer Phil Holland not all that long ago took delivery of the first Shootover K1 Hammerhead 6-axis gyro stabilized gimbal which allows for multiple cameras to be lined up and used in a panoramic array. He promptly put the rig to good use.

In its maiden voyage over New York City, the aerial camera array carried a trio of Red Weapon 8K VistaVision Monstro cameras on their side with Tokina 35mm T1.5 prime lenses and used them to shoot stunning footage of one of America’s most iconic cities.

The resulting 12K by 8K footage is 48.5 times the resolution of HD 1080p and full of captured detail. Once processed, it creates stunning 100-megapixel images with a sensor size of approximately 645 Medium Format Film. The video is an 8K export of the footage and is best viewed in fullscreen on a 4K or 8K display.
