Sony Alpha 9 does awesome slow-mo

The Sony a9 is primarily a stills camera but I’ve been using it mostly for broadcast video and I love it.

Generally I shoot 4K but the 100p 1080 is magic for slow motion.

By reducing playback to 25% in a 25p PAL timeline you get amazing results.

I shot this clip in strong winds in San Francisco with 16-35mm F2.8 G Master lens on Crane 2 gimbal.

This lens is heavy and the gimbal bobbled a bit in the conditions.

I had to do a light software stabilisation in Premiere Pro.

I’ll be posting a longer San Francisco street tour shortly.
