RED's 8K cameras are being used in the wild. Here's a behind the scenes video taken during the shooting of Guardians of the Galaxy II
The film was shot with the 8K RED DRAGON VV sensor.
Much of this eagerly-awaited sequel has been shot using CGI and blue screen techniques. Shooting real world characters and objects in 8K gives the film a sharpness and lucidity that just isn't there in 4K, or at least, not nearly as much.
8K isn't commonplace for consumers but it's now part if mainstream cinematography.
This is a very good looking film.
Watch the trailer and then see it if you can!
