    Flying with Haddi was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Such a beautiful surprise to watch this and see him here. He did zero G with me too! Only we did it about 12 times until it was properly zero g!

    Awesome project with fascinating and immensely talented people, severely let down by the poor production and post. Audio is such a mess that it's difficult to associate this with Sony. Check out the Tepui expedition from Sony for an example of great all-round work.

    Such a great concept! However the production value really makes it fall flat and hard to watch at times. Expected a lot more from Sony Alpha cameras which are capable of so much more and this definitely sells it short and even does damage to the quality as a brand. I honestly don't usually write or share any critical opinions online that much but I was so excited to watch this that I felt I had to share my thoughts as I was left so disappointed. And if anyone from Sony Alpha sees this, please get in touch as I would love to discuss further.

    Great series of interesting videos and people! Such a pity the audio is so poor :/, come on Sony they deserve an audio person for that! 🙂

    You could see how much of an impact Haraldur had on Burkard's career and journey as the photographer we all know him as today. I'm guessing this was one of the last few moments they shared together, and I'm grateful to be able to witness it. Rest in peace, Haraldur.
