Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a 3.5m high Manfrotto stand with a 7″ Lilliput HDMI monitor connected on a long HDMI cable to compose and follow the action. The sound is just what the camera recorded, no external microphone was used.

    Wow. Great video. I especially like the sound of the hooves on the cobbles. Your shooting overhead rig works really well in these sort of crowds. (Never seen the Household Cavalry with lances before?)
