The camera crew also put a camera crane in a trench to capture the action of the lead vehicles from yet another unique angle. “After the location was surveyed, a hole, long and deep enough to contain a 24-foot [Grip Factory] GF-6 crane, was dug and reinforced with a concrete floor and breeze block sides,” says Pizanis. “The GF-6 and dolly were then lowered by construction crane into the hole. The dolly was attached by cables laid in tubes underground to another dolly and track on the surface, which was well out of harm’s way. As the second dolly was pushed along the track the crane in the hole lowered (or raised). As the armada raced across the desert toward the rig, the Alexa Plus was lowered into the hole at the very last second, just an inch below the surface, capturing the underbelly of the lead vehicles as they straddled the hole—a very exciting shot!” – See more at: http://www.studiodaily.com/2015/09/high-octane-camera-wrangling-mad-max-fury-road/#sthash.ZHai1qyV.dpuf

The camera records 25p, 4k (UHD) material onto a CFast 2.0 cards using a 305Mbps, 8 bit 4:2:2 version of the new MXF wrapped XF-AVC that is in the C300 MK II. You also get full HD recording at up to 50p, 50Mbps or 50i, 35Mbps (H.264 long GOP) onto SD (Class 10) cards. Interestingly, you have to record HD (and stills) to the SD card – there isn’t an option to use the CFast – so you’ll need both types of card fitted if you want to use all the formats.
