Its not every day the Olympic torch comes to Rutherglen but today was our turn and what a great turn out, the streets were heaving with people.
This shot said it all 7-10 deep bulging onto the road everyone wants a shot of the torch as it runs along Rutherglen main street.
I caught this chap filming the event with a Sony PMW-EX3 though I did note the lack of rain cover, not clever as it was raining quite heavily on and off all afternoon. This is a perfect case for a Sony NX70 with its onboard weather proofing.
I caught this film crew filming for “Scenic Scotland” with a RED EPIC on a steadycam outfit, the lens was a RED 18-50mm T3 zoom lens. I approached the camera operator and told him I had a Canon C300 he smiled and said it was nice of Canon to announce the 4K C500 soon after the C300.
As I am not remotely interested in 4K the C300 is just fine for my purposes, I am sure the RED gives some lovely pictures I do hope the cameraman on this shoot gets in touch to tell us more about his experiences with the RED EPIC.
I only noticed this when I got back to base, the media truck, there is space for 2-3 video cameramen/women with tripods and 4 snappers along the bottom.
My sons friend Julie kindly shot me on her iPhone, I have a Storm jacket covering my 70-200 lens and the camera body, the best $38 I ever spent.
