  1. Back in September I went to Alaska with a team in an attempt to become the first people ever to get cinema-quality footage of the Northern Lights from the stratosphere. We used a Sony a7Siii attached to a weather balloon, and ended up over 122,600′ (~37km).

    I’m super proud of this one, I spent over a year planning the design and stabilization systems, and it’s been non-stop for the last few months editing all the footage. We made a short doc about our journey to capture this shot (plus lots more footage) for those who are interested: [https://youtu.be/QH8u8Vf1uI4](https://youtu.be/QH8u8Vf1uI4)

    Full camera settings:

    – Sony a7S III

    – Sony 20mm f/1.8 G

    – Filmed at 4k/24p, 1/25sec shutter speed, f/1.8, ISO 102,400

    – Payload contained two GPS trackers, a Garmin InReach Mini transmitting on the Iridium Network and a Featherweight GPS transmitting via radio frequency (for redundancy without overlap)

    – Flight took 2 hours to ascend and a little over an hour to come back down (descent velocity is not linear under parachute due to atmospheric density at altitude)

    – Landing was approx. 50miles away.
