This footage was captured with a modified Lumix GH5 and Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFD lens (using Micro 4/3 adaptor). While many of our internal flights use modified action cameras to keep weight at a minimum, for corporate clients we don't hold back.
The Laowa lens offers an Ultra Wide Angle giving 110 degrees field of view, perfect for capturing the immensity of our planet. Despite this, the rectilinear lens setup means there is almost no barrel distortion. Flat Earthers, take note: this is a true-to-life capture of the curvature of the Earth.
Focusing at infinity and shooting from such a great distance gives an incredible sharpness, and the slight vignetting for which the lens is known only highlights the beauty of the natural landscape.
Making a GH5 operate in space is not as simple as hitting record and launching it on a flight. Our engineering department specialise in optimising complex electronics and hardware to operate in the extreme environment of space.

Sent Into Space are the Near Space experts.
We use lighter-than-air gas balloons to travel to the upper stratosphere into Near Space, where you can see the curvature of the Earth (Flat Earth believers need not reply!), the black vacuum of space and the thin blue line of the Earth's atmosphere on the horizon.
This is more than just a GoPro on a weather balloon. We build a bespoke launch vehicle for each flight utilising the latest in camera technology and long-range radio and satellite communications. We film HD video of the Earth from space for stunning images of the curvature of the Earth.
With over 500 successful flights over the last 8 years, we're the only company to go to when you want to launch something into space. To find out more, visit https://www.sentintospace.com
