Mick is joining the Robbie Williams tour in Australia to document the experience of being on the road, behind the scenes of the concerts, interaction with fans and an intimate look at what Robbie is up to on tour.
Using the new Sony A7s on this job is proving to be a real asset. It's low light capability backstage and around the show is just stunning. Some scenarios involve being underneath the stage in near complete darkness as Robbie is about to go on at the start of the show. I've been absolutely amazed at what this sensor is capable of in such situations.
Some shots are pushing the iso to 25600 and beyond with fantastic results. Also on this setup is the Sony F55, Canon C100 and the new Rode Stereo Video Mic X. This mic has been fantastic for capturing live music and also back stage banter, rehearsals and even off the cuff pieces to camera.
