I’ve just been sent this video by Sky News. Currently in Egypt, the satellite station used a 5DmkII to film some remarkable footage of the unfolding violence.
Once again, the camera is being used to film in some very dangerous circumstances. I’ve been told it is a very basic kit being used: only a 5DmkII and 24-105mm IS lens, with no rig and no Z-finder.
Audio was done using a Tascam DR-100 recorder and a Sennheiser mic.
They told me they were in “eye of the storm at the moment, expecting big numbers. There are large numbers of police on the streets, heavy crackdown imminent.”
We hope the team stays safe and continues to send amazing reports from the troubled country.
