This reality series follows the NSW Air Ambulance services as they fly in to some of the most remote and hard to access environemtns in the state. Often the first on scene, these paramedics are highly skilled in not only only saving lives, but also scaling rock walls, hanging from helicopters and orienteering some pretty overwhleming landscapes. Camera operator Rainer Kelly is seen here concentrating in front of one of the choppers with an F55.


The new addition to the fleet has arrived - very happy with the new wheels - and more importantly, we can now load it up to the max - and still carry a full crew of five.

Today I joined Cathal Geaney of Got It Made Media and we went to visit and profile Phillip Johnson, the winner of the Chelsea Flower Show 2013 and film his exquisite garden at his home. First time I get to road test the new Sony F55 kit on a H2 Project - and the garden came up beautfully. We shot around waterfalls and hung the camera over water with long jib arms (gulp). Cathal went on to follow Phillip to London to follow his adventures building the garden in time for competition - and to capture the moments when he won.



Its been a very busy couple of weeks with lots of projects on the cards. The new Sony F55 is getting a good work out on some projects for finance giant GE and the boys from Truce Films are enjoying it also. For me its been a mix lately of plenty of shooting, editing as well as getting stuck into some motion graphics work also. This image is from the Geoff Boyle RAW workshop hosted by the Victorian ACS, where we tore apart all the manufacture's claims regarding today's top camera systems. Some great advice from a guy that's been around and worked on ALOT.
