Micro Studio Camera 4K Captures Footage for BBC and NHK

PostTue Jun 20, 2017 4:13 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that its Micro Studio Camera 4K was chosen as part of the new EagleRay 4K underwater camera system, which is used to capture 4K footage up to 1,000 meters deep. Lee Frey, co-founder of Arctic Rays and manned submersible pilot for Alucia Productions, used the Micro Studio Camera 4K to capture footage during Antarctic expeditions for the BBC’s “Blue Planet II” and the NHK’s “Deep Ocean” series.

Alucia Productions is a nonprofit media company that partners with leading broadcasters, scientific institutions, conservation organizations and other production companies to chronicle ocean expeditions aboard its research vessel, the M/V Alucia. In addition to piloting submersibles for the Alucia, Frey founded Arctic Rays with his business partner and co-founder Dirk Fieberg. The company specializes in lighting and imaging for underwater vehicles.

“There are synergies between all the companies involved, and everyone brings their expertise to the table,” said Frey. “In creating the EagleRay 4K for the BBC, we needed a camera that was studio and cinematography quality and that provided 4K in as small a package as possible. The Micro Studio Camera 4K delivered, and the ability to customize its remote control capability was perfect.”
