    Shooting some video and photorgaphic stills of surfers at the Nike US Open at Huntingon Beach!

    Here's some of the video I shot with the above 45WINDSURF / 9SHOOTER rig:

    And here're some of the photographic stills! www.flickr.com/photos/herosjourneymythology45surf/sets/72...

    Enjoy!

    I call the above combination the 45WINDSURFER as it lets you SURF the intermittent waves of stills photography, while catching the constant WIND of video. :) I shoot all my models with a variation of this setup too, using the D800 instead with the 70-200 mm VR2.

    Here is my gear for tomorrow:

    Nikon D4 with AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR & Video Camera!

    The AF-S NIKKOR
    600mm f/4G ED VR is a high-speed, high-performance prime lens which features Nikon’s VR image stabilization and Nano Crystal Coat!

    The Nikon D4 rocks! It focuses fast and continuously! It can shoot 12 RAWS/second! Ideal for shooting Kelly Slater pulling tricks!

    The video camera is the amazing image-stabilized Panasonic X900MK 3MOS 3D Full HD SD Camcorder. The 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colors - red, green and blue - and processes each color with its own individual sensor. This reduces light loss compared to the 1MOS sensor. Pixel Shift Technology, which took years to develop, provides a huge number of effective pixels for moving pictures – equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD. This technology renders ultrafine images with excellent color reproduction and superb detail! It is built with an awesome F1.5 LEICA lens! The image stabilization is amazing on this, even at full zoom!

    Using a rugged Manfrotto tripod and a Manfrotto Bogen tripod head!

    Wish me luck! :) Wish you could join me to shoot stills & video of the world's greatest surfers!

    These pictures were shot with the Sony Alpha 65 (A65).

    The panasonic camcorder shoots at 60P and I slow it down to 24P in post for slow motion!
