A phenomenal look at the American South West in 4k video

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Pure phenomenal nature from the American South West — in 4k glory no less! If you watch – make sure to click thru to youtube where you can see it in 4k (assuming you have the bandwidth).

Shot on Red Epic-m, Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EOS 5D Mark II cameras.

Note to new readers… the Canon EOS 5D Mark III can't shoot video in 4k, this is made of timelapses shot as RAW images and then made into a 4k movie. The live action scenes are likely shot on the Red in 4k
