Filmed at "Giant's Causeway" in County Antrim, Northern Ireland on the Blackmagic 4K. Hence the title of this piece!
Shot at ISO 200,400,800 except the 800 shots I had to leave out because of issues with the image quality. Lots of speckles on it plus the noise is quite ugly at that point.
Lenses were the Sigma 18-35 F1.8, Tamron 24-70 F2.8 and Canon 70-200 F4 IS L. Tripod was the Really Right Stuff 5 stage carbon fibre and the new and rather nice, but pricey FH-350 head.
Zacuto rig and V-Mount battery set up as detailed on my blog post.
The first day I used just the back screen, nightmare. Impossible to judge. Second day was with the Small HD DP7 Pro OLED...SO MUCH EASIER!! Much this isn't that portable and it's quite heavy.
Shot in 25p with 180 degree shutter apart from a couple that needed a stop more light and I didn't want to use the 800 so they are at 360. Also my 82mm Variable ND broke when a lens got dropped so some shots have 45 degree shutter.
Only the low light shots were wide open, most were stopped down the F5.6 for better quality. The sigma at F1.8 is really rather good !!
