There are few of these nomadic camels left in the vast Mongolian wilderness. They're so acutely sensitive they take fright when you're more than 4km away but a powerful HJ40 lens enabled the crew to film from a distance. Aerials were filmed from a Russian M18 helicopter using a conventional Tyler mount to dampen the shake. Increasing the film speed to 40fps rather than 25fps made the images smoother.
