Apollo 11 Saturn V Launch (HD) Camera E-8

Wow. This is amazing. Though I’ve posted it here, I think you should go to the actual vimeo page,, and watch it in full screen high definition.

Here’s what the narrator says about the film.

This clip is raw from Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower/mobile launch program of Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from the 16mm original.

The camera is running at 500 fps, making the total clip of over 8 minutes represent just 30 seconds of actual time. Narration is provided by Mark Gray (me), Executive Producer for Spacecraft Films.

Watch it now.
