The article reports on video equipment and a special arrangement used by production studio Flagship Films for its nine-day shooting of an alternative travel documentary at Grand Canyon, Arizona. For better return on investment, the five person team did two productions at once. "Off the Path at the Grand Canyon" was shot on Super 16 film, simultaneously with a training DVD, "How to Make a Documentary." For the how-to portion, Flagship used Canon's XL2 and an 80GB Focus Enhancements drive. The crew also shot time-lapse stills for the documentary with a Canon E0S 1Ds Mark II, a 16.7-megapixel camera that was outfitted with a 15mm fisheye.
