Natural Beauty

Kunito Imai is fond of animals and plants. In and around Tokyo he regularly searches out a small area of nature that he can capture in pictures using ZEISS lenses. His motifs reflect the changing light of the seasons. Portraits of primates, still lifes of flower petals, alluring macro photos — for Imai it is the haiku, the Japanese short poetry form, that forms the common element.

Cinematography

The view from the cockpit of a large airplane has always fascinated people. Unfortunately, with today’s security regulations, it is an experience denied most of us as airline passengers. Thomas Aigner, a former television journalist and media entrepreneur, offers a solution with his documentation film project PilotsEYE.tv. He views the flight through the extreme wide angle of the Compact Prime CP.2 lens series from ZEISS. From the coveted middle seat between captain and co-pilot, Aigner’s film crew directs the ‘filming’ eye of the brand-new CP.2 15 mm/T2.9 lens, which is combined with compact HD professional movie cameras. That lets the viewer see exactly what is happening during the flight through the eyes of the pilot.

On the way to work: The movie gear (CP.2 15 mm/T2.9, EOS C 300) is still on the ground with the film crew waiting to board the cockpit of the 777F, Boeing’s latest cargo airplane, with airline AeroLogic (a joint venture between DHL/Lufthansa Cargo). Flight BOX512/519 will go from Leipzig (LEJ) via Bergamo (BGY) to Hong Kong (HKG).
