Canon skates through history with Red Bull

Posted on Aug 14, 2023

Canon x Red Bull - Behind the scenes of 'Skate The Museum'

Canon’s recent PowerShot V10 vlogging camera has been put to good use, alongside its EOS C500 Mark II cinema camera and XF605 video camera, in capturing the temporary transformation of London’s Natural History Museum into a skatepark last month at ‘Skate The Museum’. As part of a team up between Canon and Red Bull, skaters were handed the keys and allowed to skate among the venue’s 80 million artefacts, with their once-in-a-lifetime antics captured on Canon cameras to form a promotional video, which can be viewed below.

One of the set pieces involved rigging up 64 Canon DSLRs to enable a ‘bullet-time’ sequence in which pro athlete Leticia Bufoni kick-flipped over a velociraptor skeleton within the museum.

The Canon EOS R5 was also utilised once the sun had gone down, with its low-light capability enabling the team to capture atmospheric shots of the skaters at the museum after hours.
