Today’s video

Electric Life contacted us by email to send us this video. It was shot in 6K on the Inspire 2 with a Zenmuse X7 camera in combination with the brand new Apple ProRes RAW codec and the result is stunning. The Italian Dolomites in the Veneto and South Tyrol (Sud Tirolo) regions are on the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites and according to the maker of the video:

“It’s a mesmerizing, ancient and mystical location, where you can enjoy nature at its best. It is one of those places that makes you understand why Italy is such a famous place for tourism.”

Be sure to watch this video in full-screen mode and on the highest possible resolution. It is worth it!
