Sony Europe hired me to make a video for the launch of the long-anticipated A7S III, a camera that we thought would never come out! It made sense to me to make a follow up to my video "Now I See" that I made with the first A7S. It was the video that showed people the amazing low light ability of the camera.
Apart from being filmed on the same beach and on the same exact day of the year, just 6 years later, this isn't a copy of the original video. It expands greatly on it with a strong emphasis on the daylight filming due to the camera's incredible 4K high frame rate abilities. Also, the use of match cuts of the same shot at different times of the day is a nod to the making nighttime look like daytime in the original video. There is also a strong sound design so listen with headphones or some nice stereo speakers!
Many lenses were used and are listed below. A large percentage of the day filming was with the Sony 200-600mm F5.6-6.3.
About 95%+ was shot using autofocus. The majority of it using the LCD touch focus tracking mode.
