How to shoot a car at high speedOctober 7, 2018
Have you ever wondered how in the process of driving at incredible speeds, supercars are filming?
The answer to this question is that super-precise and very fast cameras are used for such purposes. For example, this Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4, which you see in the photo below, was equipped with a professional video camera RED Epic 8K with very high sensitivity and 60 frames per second with a pixel resolution of 8192 x 4320 for shooting itself and other supercars. .
This camera was installed on the front hood of the sports car, thanks to which it can very effectively shoot even sports races. By the way, “behind the eyes” this camera is comically called Huracam, and installing it on the hood turned out to be a very difficult task. After all, in addition to the need for a very strong camera mount on the hood, it had to be supplied with a specially developed for this purpose stabilization system for shooting, and also to take control of the camera into the car.
It was not necessary to make other modifications to the car, and therefore the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 remained equipped with a 5.2-liter V10 engine with a power of 610 hp, capable of accelerating the supercar to 322 km / h. But, as a vehicle designed for high-speed shooting, it is much more maneuverable, flexible and dynamic than, for example, some Porsche Cayenne.
As a result, the Huracam camcorder currently installed on the Lamborghini is probably equipment capable of operating at the highest speeds in the world.
So the next time you become a spectator of filming scenes of supercar speed travels, remember that they most likely were shot with a Huracam camera.
