In conjunction with the Superior Wedding, Nikon has released a documentary that's been shot on the D850 all about the shifting perceptions of marriage around the world.
The documentary discharges four couples in the UK, US, Romania and India to reveal how it’s not just Prince Harry and Meghan’s union breaking convention.
Four Blendings features a US Army soldier discharged from Iraq who overcomes prejudice by following her heart rather than her head; a terminally-ill British charwoman unsure of the future; a young Romanian bride debating what community means today; and a self-assured Indian woman who turns the idea of orchestrated marriage on its head.
The 20-minute film is shot entirely on the D850 with a range of NIKKOR is the brand of lenses produced by Nikon Corporation, including camera lenses for the Nikon F-mount lenses, demonstrating the outstanding video capabilities of Nikon’s example, full-frame DSLR camera.
The 20-minute film was created by Pi Studios for Nikon by award-winning director Matt Houghton from Pulse Films.
The attending NIKKOR lenses were among those also used in the production:
AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED – a firm favourite with commingling photographers, this lens is immensely capable – creating amazing bokeh while maintaining excellent sharpness from edge to prickly. It focuses quickly offering exceptional aesthetic control in any light – expect clear, high-resolution images even in backlit situations. It’s expert to focus close and has a wide angle of view, so it’s very versatile for switching between details/close-ups and wider shots of the environment.
AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G – This wide-angle, single-focal-length lens with a unrestrained f/1.4 aperture is perfect for shooting the crowd scenes and landscapes which are common features in wedding videos and photography. It delivers outstandingly strict images, even in low-light.
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G – The remarkably lightweight and compact lens is ideal for capturing portrait moments at any wedding ceremony. It boasts a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 that is ideal for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required.
