Photographer Vincent Laforet has been having some fun this week, testing out a new 2X Canon lens converter for the Red Epic camera, choosing a 600mm Canon lens to effectively double focal length to 1200mm at a 4K resolution.


While the Red/Canon mount hasn't been released just yet, Laforet got his hands on it early and has reported that it includes image stabilization, digital aperture control, autofocus, and a bunch of other features. The results, as you can see in his video below, are nothing short of amazing—but then, he is a professional, and had some beautiful scenery to work with. Check out the setup he used to make this happen. [Vincent Laforet, Vimeo, with pics via Propic]
