YouTube Description:

The Most Incredible Volcano Video ever shot ! Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg, after an epic struggle with the weather for 35 days, we became the first people ever to get this close to Marum Volcano's famed lava lake on Ambrym Island, Vanuatu. Coming within 30 metres of the lava lake down a watercourse, it was possible to stand the heat for only 6 seconds. With Fire Brigade breathing apparatus and heat proof proximity suit it was possible to stand on the very edge and view the incredible show for over 40 minutes.

Exactly what I was thinking... "No HD?!?!?!?"

Looks sweet though, and yes almost fake with the size difference being so great. Quite a video :]

Shame to go to all that effort and not even bring an HD camera.

Maybe the ten year old camera is the only one they had that allowed them to manipulate DOF and zoom so it looks like the guy is MUCH closer to the lava than he really is.

Anyhoo, THIS is the most incredible volcano video of all time. Proximity suit...

I'm kinda horrified that that was an kiwi flag. Can I boot him out of NZ? Or, you know, chuck him in Mount Doom when he gets back.

(Coz we have that here. I know that because PJ keeps putting it in our tourism films with the short people in them.)
