Over R5 million of gear in action: 50 Canon EOS-1D X cameras rigged together for a “bullet time” shoot.

Towards the end of last year, Swiss production team DokLab made use of 50 Canon EOS-1D X cameras in a rig to capture “bullet time” shots for a TV show.

With the support of Canon Switzerland, the team rigged the 50 DSLRs, each equipped with a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II, to fire at the same time, allowing the viewer to pan around the subject. While “bullet time” certainly isn’t a new trick anymore, it is impressive to see this level of gear being used – the cameras and lenses alone would retail at over R5,000,000!
