James Bond movie actress Naomie Harris last night declared a new-found interest in photography after using a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV to promote Sony gadgets in upcoming movie Spectre.
Speaking exclusively to Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine, Harris – who plays Miss Moneypenny in Spectre – said she was particularly impressed with the slow-motion feature on the RX100 IV.
‘It’s cool,’ she told AP at a Sony’s ‘Made for Bond’ launch party at the Mondrian Hotel on London’s South Bank.
As we reported last month, the RX100 IV – a digital compact – features in a TV advert that sees Miss Moneypenny embark on a daring mission to retrieve 007’s smartphone, said to be a Sony Xperia Z5 in new movie Spectre.
The advert showcases the camera’s slow-motion capabilities as Miss Moneypenny tracks the suitcase containing the phone.
The Sony RX100 IV boasts super-slow motion of up to 40x – a feature that, in the past, was primarily reserved for professional cameras.
The RX100 IV features an extremely high frame rate of 960fps to produce ‘super-slow motion of momentary movements invisible to human eyes’, according to the Sony website.
‘This feature has various settings to suit active subjects, so you can make pro-style movies of a “hidden” universe of movement all around you.’
