Shooting the P-Town Cross race was a great experiment for me. I wanted to see what I could capture over the course of one hour. I was pretty pleased with the results. I thought I would give you a little insight into how I was able to get all the footage.
To accomplish all this I loaded up my Clik Elite Contrejour with the following gear:
- Nikon D800 and lenses
- DJI Phantom 2 with gimbal
- Feisol Tournament Tripod and Ballhead
- Gopro Hero 3
- Capture Beyond Limits Nebo Slider
My strategy was pretty simple: cover the first 20 minutes with aerial footage, then break out the DSLR and slider for the rest of the race. I think it's really amazing that I can carry everything for aerial coverage, a DSLR, four lenses, a meter long slider, and a tripod. It wasn't even that bad to carry. This is why I love lightweight equipment. It helps me carry an amazing kit and I can even hike in to more remote locations with everything I need.
