One-Take Sketch - Shot on Zhiyun Crane 2 with Dual Pixel Autofocus
We shot this sketch in one take on a 6D Mark II and a Zhiyun Crane 2 gimbal. I know a lot of people have written off the 6D Mark II, but it's very useful for certain situations (particularly gimbal work in combination with it's Dual Pixel Autofocus). We considered using a C100, but the 6D's size and weight was more suitable for the smaller gimbal. Also the full frame look is a plus. The scene is set at a dark house party, and the camera performed very well under low light (we had a cheap $25 ring light mounted onto the lens).
We used the Canon 24mm L series set to autofocus and it also worked very well. We are pleased with the results. I could have been more precise with my camera work and blocking, but we only had 4 hours to prep the location and get the shot.
Would love to know your thoughts and feedback!
