Falcon Heavy Launch Coverage


I am going to be at the Falcon Heavy launch today if you are interested in following this historic event. I hope to live stream the event on the FujiAddict Facebook page using Facebook live if cellular service is good enough. In the future, I will use Youtube live if more readers subscribe. Below you can find a list of all the equipment I am taking with me in my 35lbs backpack and a photo of it laid out along with some additional YouTube videos explaining the Launch. Please share the coverage once it starts so more people can participate. This coverage is for FujiAddict and SonyAddict because I will be shooting both systems side by side and seeing how it compares to the Canon/Nikon crowd.


I hope to shoot the launch and film it in 4k, but haven’t decided which camera I will use to film and which to shoot with yet. The equipment I am using is as follows.

Fujifilm X-T2 with Grip
Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR with 2x TC

Fujifilm SQ10 (for the kids)

Sony a7RIII
Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Lens with 1.4x TC

Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-Q Smartphone Gimbal

Pelican Memory Card Case

Portable Battery Packs

Oben CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod and BC-139 Ball Head

Oben CC-2381L Carbon Fiber Tripod with BC-139 Ball Head

PRVKE Travel and DSLR Camera Backpack 31L

I have plenty of batteries on me to keep my iPhone X charged for streaming so we will see how it goes, but I am really looking forward to the event. The Launch is supposed to take place between 1:30 PM and 4:30 PM EST. If there is anything interesting going on I will live stream whatever event might be interesting.

In the event that I have no signal at the launch area I will be posting 4k video and photos as soon as possible to my YouTube500px, and Instagram accounts, so follow them too.
