Last year, the first commercial-quality footage of the Earth from outer space was shot on a Sony Alpha a7S II. And now, the same camera was used for the first ever Hollywood feature-length movie shot on a full-frame mirrorless. A new horror thriller The Possession of Hannah Grace was not shot on a high-end movie camera but on a $2,200 Sony mirrorless.
We mount action cameras on handlebars and helmets, and Japanese engineers mounted a Sony Alpha a7S II onto the International Space Station (ISS). As a result, we now have the first ever commercial-quality footage of the Earth from outer space.
249m miles above our home planet, the camera filmed day and night view of Japan and the USA. It took special extra equipment to keep the camera safe and rolling, and as you can expect – the efforts paid off.
