11 Aug Shooting Driver Interviews with the Fujifilm X-T4

Over last weekend I shot several video interviews with drivers during the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and Michelin Le Mans Cup (MLMC) using a new Fujifilm X-T4 video rig for the first time.

I have spent the last few months investing in the new X-T4 and associated gear with a view of using it primarily for video at the ELMS and MLMC events.  To this end I bought a second X-T4 last week and a Smallrig cage so I can attach a 5 inch Freeworld LCD screen and microphones easily.

Here is an interview we shot with Algarve Pro Racing’s Gaby Aubry who was interviewed in French by ELMS Communications Manager Sophie Liger.

As you can see in the image at the top of the page, this interview was conducted in the paddock with the X-T4 video rig attached to 3 Legged Thing ‘Jay’ Carbon Fibre video tripod.  The lens used was the superb XF16-55mm f2.8, which was fitted with a Haida M10 filter holder with a 3 stop ND filter fitted to allow a wider aperture to be used in the bright sunlight.

The audio was via a Rode Wireless Go microphone, with the Interview Go adapter for the transmitter.

Lighting was via a Rotalight Neo2 which was attached to a 3 Legged Thing ‘Billy’ Carbon Fibre tripod.  The light was placed to add some fill to the deep shadow on the right hand side of Gaby’s face  caused by the strong sunlight in the paddock.

The X-T4 was set to video
