NANPA member and Sony ambassador Nate Luebbe tells Dawn, Ron, and Michael about sending a Sony a7S III up more than 120,000 feet in a hot air balloon to capture 4K video of the aurora borealis. Find out how this remarkable idea hatched, and hear the engineering research, meteorological considerations, and FAA regulations that Nate and his small team had to balance to capture cinema-quality footage shot at 102,400 ISO.

…And if you happen to find that $10 styrofoam cooler with a 10-foot red parachute attached to it, well, you’ll find out how to reach Nate on this episode, too.
