With the introduction of the non-fisheye 5.4mm f/3.0 60d HFOV 10MP GP54030 (No Distortion) lens for the GoPro many of our customers are finding that not only can they now get shots from unique angles (namely on a small UAV) but that they no longer need to solely rely on larger cameras for the majority of their scenes.
We met videography Trevor Fulks of Partial Pressure Productions at the Los Angeles Drone Expo where we sold him a 5.4mm lens for his Hero 4 Black. He had a small film coming up that they were needing to capture in 4k and he liked the way our non-fisheye lens produced very “non-GoPro” looking media. Here are the shots he captured during the shoot using a small UAV:
Most of these shots were used in the final film below. As Trevor says:
“We had planned it to be about 90% Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 footage, 10% GoPro Hero 4 Black – 5.4mm. But once we got a good look at the footage it ended up 50/50 Panasonic/GoPro, which is crazy to think about.” – Trevor Fulks (Partial Pressure Productions)
We think he couldn’t be more correct.
We’re working on some new GoPro filters here at Peau Productions. One of the first ones we have is a High Pass filter that blocks light below 800nm, making it a perfect Infrared (IR) filter:
Using the new V2 Supermount, we insert the filter into the bottom of the lens mount between the lens and the sensor. This is great as it lets us simply swap lenses but still keep the filter installed in the camera.
Here is the raw 12MP photo out of the GoPro Hero 4 Black with our 2.97mm 5MP Non-Fisheye Lens Installed. Notice the pink color due to the far end of the visible light spectrum:
Here is the same photo in Greyscale (Black and White):
Here is the same photo colorized to Nightvision green:
We’ll be launching this filter and other new GoPro filters on our store very soon.
