Endeavour was shot on the 5D MarkII and involved some pretty cold and wet shooting. At various points during the one day shoot I found myself standing in a river with my Miller tripod submerged to the head and the 5D scarily close to the water. At one point I was using Pete’s 5D on a Jib and did accidentally touch the water with it! The camera was mounted upside down so only the hot-shoe went in but luckily it was fine.
Pete handled the whole incident much better than I would have done, although I would have replaced it of course if I’d damaged it…. phew!
In terms of glass I used the Canon 50mm f1.2, the most along with the 70-200 f2.8 for the shots where I had to work from the other side of the river. The Canon 24-70 f2.8 was used when shooting on the Jib.
I think Pete’s done a really nice Job with the editing and I’m especially impressed with the Music and Foley which was done by Joe Yates who also worked on “Adrift”
