Vincent Laforet is at it again
The angle of video of a Canon 600mm f4 EF Lens with a 2X converter on a RED Epic, is roughly one degree. (1 Degree, 45 arcminutes horizontally to be exact.)
The focal length in terms of 35mm is more than 3400mm – not too shabby when you consider this was shot at 4K, 120fps in full RAW on the Epic.
So who cares? Is this just a case of “just because you can…”
The yet to be released EF mount for the RED system fully supports IS, autofocus, digital aperture control, touch to focus, touch to rack focus and distance readout. All you need to convert your RED to EF is a Torx screwdriver.
Vincent shot this film at Mono Lake 45 minutes after sunset until it was dark. He used an ISO range of 800 to 2000.

I received some information from Germany that the August 19 announcements will infact be for PIXMA printers. I cannot 100% confirm this, but that’s the latest.
Expect camera announcements to follow next week.
I didn’t want anyone to think I was giving him a hard time, if I had 1/10 the talent Vincent has, I’d consider my life a booming success photographically.
If Vincent says his announcements have nothing to do with Canon, I believe him. Whatever he’s doing is going to be cool.
“Just to be clear…”
Vincent Laforet has clarified a post he made last week about upcoming announcements.
“…..they will have absolutely, unequivocally, NOTHING to do with Canon or a Canon product.“
I’m sure he tests more than Canon gear, however. I have a hard time believing he’s not playing with some fun new Canon gear.
