How the OlymPics were captured

I just found this little behind-the-scenes video that gives you a fascinating glimpse into the world of the professional photographers who took some of the most stunning photos of the Olympics in London.

It's mad - there was a Reuter team of 15 snappers in the stadium - each carrying 3 cameras (tele-zoom, mid-zoom and wide-angle-zoom) while each operating up to 5 remote controlled cameras at the same time.

The results are equally epic - as probably all of us have seen.

I have a feeling though that sports stills photography will soon be taken over by super-high-def video - which would allow you to film eveything and then just grab the perfect still from the stream.

Maybe already at the next Olympics in Rio?
