If you are not familiar with the 9×7 camera, it is a new high-end cinema camera with a global shutter. It is aimed to replace multi-camera arrays and 70mm film, and it specifically targets high-end VFX, VR, Giant Screen, and IMAX productions. If you want to know more about the camera we did a very in-depth article when it was first announced that you can read here.

The 9×7 camera can be rented with a range of accessories and lenses as well as the integration of state-of-the-art stabilized platforms and operated via manned aircraft, vehicles, and drones. XM2 PURSUIT will provide end-to-end management from planning and execution through post-production.

The 9×7 captures images using an uncompressed raw format with a recording bandwidth of up to 10 GB/s – approximately 30 times more than traditional digital cinema cameras can achieve. The 9×7 camera is available with a variety of lens options and mount systems including LPL, PL, and Panavision.
