I’ve been a little quite the last couple of weeks because I’ve be preping and now shooting the Aurora up in Norway. Last night we had an incredible show, bright Aurora’s all night. The only problem was the temperature….. -30c, -22f. I did experience a couple of small issues with the cameras throwing up errors once they fully cooled down (they were outside for 8 hours), but despite the very harsh conditions all the cameras produced some incredible images. I got real-time footage of the Aurora with the PMW-F5 without having to resort to the slow shutter.
I got stunning timelapse sequences with the NEX5N and Sony A99. As I write this the temperature is -32c and forecast to get even colder tonight. The cameras are all outside snapping and time lapsing away as the sun comes up and turns the snow and ice brilliant orange. I can’t wait to share the video clips and images, but that will take a while as so far I have shot over 8,000 still frames and a couple of hours of video.
