Recently Gotham Film Works took delivery of the first
SHOTOVER K1 HAMMERHEAD Aerial Camera Array.

Over the last several years I’ve been specializing in long form, high
resolution, large format aerial cinematography. For the first shoot with this new aerial array we rigged the system with 3X RED Weapon Monstro 8K VV cameras, which once processed creates stunning 100 megapixel motion picture images with a sensor size of approximately 645 Medium Format Film.

The resulting 12K by 8K footage is 48.5 times the resolution of HD 1080p and full of captured detail.

This is an 8K export of the footage. Best viewed in 4K or 8K full screen.

  1. As a German I take pride in the words: "I love NYC!" God bless this city and this great nation that I call our dear friends.

  2. Well I just watching that in $k on my 55inch 4K HDR TV and WOW. I dont think i have even seen anything like it, can only imagine what the original 12K looked like lol

  3. I've got a 1080p monitor and, although 8k looked sharped than 4k, 4k looked better than 8k because in 8k the screen would show little lines in the image…

  4. Not really sure what the point of shooting this in 12K was. After 8K the human eye can no longer discern between pixels so therefore no difference in image quality will be discernible. People will most likely jump onboard anyway for the simple fact that 12K sounds better than 8K because it has more. So on and so forth.
