"This is the Helmeted Hornbill, a rare, endangered bird that I spent months pursuing in the jungles of Thailand and Indonesia for @NatGeo videos and an article in the September 2018 issue of the magazine in partnership with #CornellLabofOrnithology. It’s been my dream for a while to have a camera that can record motion and capture National Geographic quality stills at the same time, exactly for a situation like this – an incredibly rare bird I may only get a few glimpses of, and yet need to deliver top level stills and video. My RED EPIC-W with HELIUM 8K S35 sensor totally delivered. When this male hornbill landed at his nest opening in the dramatic morning light, I rolled at 6K, 75fps, and got a still frame that was published in @NatGeo as well as footage for our videos.” - Tim Laman
