RED Digital And Fujifilm/Fujinon Team To Broadcast Volcom Pipe Pro
Considered one of the premiere surfing competitions, the Volcom Pipe Pro is the inaugural event for the World Surfing League (WSL), bringing together the world’s top pipeline surfers.
Live footage from the event was captured on RED Digital Cinema’s WEAPON with MONSTRO 8K VVsensor camera equipped with FUJINON Premier PL 25-300mm and 19-90mm Cabrio zoom lenses for Red Bull TV, in addition to Hawaii and Australia cable channels. The event also served as a real-world demo day with shooters from Red Bull, the WSL, and Uncle Toads Media Group trying out the new camera sensor and lens combination.
Local and visiting video professionals also received hands-on time with the RED camera and FUJINON zooms during an open house at Hawaii Camera on Feb. 11. This year, third year that RED and FUJIFILM have collaborated during the Volcom Pipe Pro, the Hawaii Camera demo day attracted upward of 75+ attendees.
