The Camera system shoots at 4k as standard and is complimented with a Canon 30-300 lens. This is extremely high quality as it shoots with 9x more pixels than HD, and as a result of it’s excessive abilities, 4k footage appears more refined and detailed compared to that captured at lower resolutions.
Footage is supplied as Raw files on completion of shooting for immediate post-production processing.

THE GIMBAL STRUCTURE
Engineered with 5-axis gyro-stabilised fibre optics for full flexibility. The system can isolate and help eliminate vibrations from helicopter movement throughout the flight. Creating ultra-smooth, ultra-HD, cinematic footage. Its 5-axis gyros also enables impeccable 360 degree range flexibility for versatile filming freedom.
The gimbal has been constructed using the latest technologies in Carbon Fibre. This means at a mere 16 inches in Diameter, the system is the smallest and lightest 4k aerial camera platform to date. Modularised to break down quickly into 5 cases that can be shipped as excess baggage, the system can travel worldwide at low-costs without limiting filming quality or aircraft endurance during the shoot. Plus, with rigging taking approximately 1-1.5 hours, it can be assembled and on task in limited time frames.
