Session code: OT14

Oral / Technical, Main EuroSpeleo Conference

Mr Gavin Newman


How developments in technology have changed how we film caves and what its possible to film.
From 16mm film and car batteries through to 4K Video and high powered LEDs the technology available has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Camera and Lighting Technology has changed what we can film, and computer technology has changed what we can do with that footage once we’ve captured it. The changes are mostly for the better but with everybody filming everything these days what are the pitfalls and where will it all end…
An illustrated talk by Gavin Newman looking at what new technology can do for us and how we don’t need to spend a fortune to take advantage of it. Using examples from Gavin’s 20 year career as a professional cave cameraman.
