How To Make The Perfect Bullet Time Shots Using Nearly $500K Of Canon Gear (EOS-1D X)

The video was made in 2013 by Swiss Radio and TV SRF with the support of Canon Switzerland. 50 Canon EOS-1D X cameras and 50 EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM were used for Bullet Time Shots (BTS) used for the programme “Sommer-Challenge”. From the article at CPN Europe:

“We approached Canon to see if 50 cameras and lenses were available to do this shoot,” explains cameraman Reischer, who didn’t specify which DSLR he required when he first enquired. It was lucky they made the request when they did, as usually Canon does not have this number of bodies and lenses available. But in this case, there were a few days of opportunity for the shoot, before Canon’s preparations began for the World Athletics Championships in Moscow. “It was like ‘wow’. This is the top model. We were going to shoot with 50 of them – it was just crazy,” Reischer recalls. The enormity of the task, and the challenge of getting to know Canon’s flagship DSLR intimately, was dawning.

A lot of high-end photography technology in use here.
