600mm Canon Lens + 2X Converter + Red Epic = Stunning Moving Pictures

Photographer Vincent Laforet has been having some fun this week, testing out a new 2X converter with his 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 stabilisation, 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. [Vimeo, with pics via Propic]
