Dynamic footage of Jaguar’s performance SUV was captured during the professional debut of the new Canon EOS C500 Mark II camera.
The film captures the F-PACE range – including the 550PS, V8 supercharged SVR model – and its luxury and performance.
The F-PACE SVR showcased its dynamic ability, courtesy of its specially tuned chassis, on the twisting hairpin bends of Velefique, southern Spain. The SVR accelerates from 0-100kph in 4.3 seconds.
Jaguar worked with Canon to build the ultimate camera vehicle for the shoot. The crew rigged an F-PACE with a highly-advanced Russian Arm – a remote-controlled camera crane – fitted with Canon’s new EOS camera. The vehicle was covered in a matte black body wrap to minimise reflections in the subject vehicles during filming.
The F-PACE features double-wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension to provide dynamic handling and comfort; attributes which helped the camera rig maintain its composure on the twisting mountain roads.
The Advanced Electronic Image Stabilisation of the Canon EOS C500 Mark II and Dual Pixel Auto Focus functionality ensured both SUVs remained in focus, with the camera suspended from the highly manoeuvrable arm of the crane system.
The new full frame camera shoots 5.9K quality footage at up to 60 frames per second. When travelling at its 283kph top speed, the F-PACE SVR covers 78.7 metres every second, which means the performance SUV would travel just 1.31m in the time taken for the advanced new camera to capture a single frame.
The camera is powered by Canon’s new DIGIC DV 7 processor. Revealed at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam in September, it is the first camera in the range with the ability to record 5.9K Cinema RAW Light onto new, faster storage CFexpress cards. The new device is also the first Cinema EOS System camera to feature a user-interchangeable lens-mount, giving film professionals a wide range of lenses to choose from.
