    Behind the Scenes - a7R for video of building explosion

    A reporter buddy asked me to cover a secondary vantage point for the explosion/demolition of an old coal-fired power plant in St Paul.

    First time I've really used the a7R for video.

    The setup -



    The victim -



    Its last gasp (this one's from my 800e) -



    The a7R video of its demise -

    Tell me they planned for the stack to hit the little building in front.

    Way Cool! Can you reshoot that with the Leica M240 (video), so we can see how the camera's compare?
