VMI exhibited at at Bristol's monthly Natural History Network event in June.

This is a regular monthly trade event in Bristol attended by around 70 Industry delegates who had come to hear the head of the BBC Natural History Unit (NHU), Julian Hector, speak about the year ahead.

At this event, VMI demonstrated Canon's Super-low-light camera, the 4m ASA Canon ME20 fsh which shoots colour images in near darkness, the Alexa Mini camera with Cooke anamorphic lenses and iFootage Sharkslider robotic lapse slider. 

For the first time, VMI was also demonstrating the brand new Phantom VEO 4K super slow-motion camera, which shoots with the same capture specification as the much larger Phantom FLEX 4K, whilst being small enough to shoot shoulder-mount comfortably and only draws 80W of power, whilst offloading to inexpensive CFAST 2 cards.  VMI captured 1000fps images live in 4K and immediately played them back at 25p and was demonstrating wireless camera control and playback.

Cinematography Students from the UWE (University of West England) filmed an account of the event and you can watch the highlights here.
