The S1000+ is designed for professional aerial photography and cinematography. It is user friendly, safe, stabilised and easy to fly whilst its integrated design makes assembly and configuration simple and fast. Retractable landing gear, vibration dampers, slightly angled arms and minimalised gimbal mount allows for a clear 360° view from the camera.
To complement this high specification platform we use the Zenmuse Z15 5D Gimbal carrying a Canon 5D MkIII professional DSLR.
The gimbal provides the highest level of stability in controlling the camera equipment even if the aircraft is in strong wind or at high speed. Undeniably, it is the top choice in professional filming or aerial photography.
We chose this platform due to our experience of the Canon 5D series camera - it has been providing us with an unparalleled customer experience as it offers excellent video quality and a variety of recording formats, bit rates and frame rates… and with up to 1920×1080/24P (full HD) shooting ability, the Canon 5D is a perfect camera for all in the world of aerial photography and film. With its 22mp sensor we get the best images for your requirements.
The Inspire Pro, complete with the X5 Camera features a 4k, fully stabilised, 360° freedom of movement camera. It is a light, flexible platform that is quick to deploy and can be flown where the S1000 is simply not practical or legally restricted due to its size.
We have upgraded our Inspire to carry the Zenmuse X5 which is one of the smallest Micro 4/3 cameras ever made and the only M4/3 cameras designed specifically for aerial imaging. It can capture ultra-clear 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and capture photos at 16 megapixels.
For additional capability on the ground we have added to our portfolio the DJI OSMO hand held video camera.
The Osmo delivers camera stabilisation similar to that on the Inspire using a 3-axis stabilization system completely integrated with the camera which cancels out movements in three directions so it stays still even if your hands shake or wobble. This ensures fantastic ground level video to complement aerial footage.
The Canon 5D Mark III has been the main stay of our business for many years delivering fantastic quality images and film for our customers. The fact we can now fly it 120m in the air has only added to its versatility and value. We use this camera for the majority of our work - aerial, ground, studio or events.
The 5D takes photos at 22.3megapixels giving ultra sharp quality whatever the lighting conditions and we have a range of lenses to provide wide-angle, architectural (especially with the tilt and shift lens to keep everything straight and level), or keeping that subtle distance from the subject using a variety of zoom lenses.
We can bring on site studio lighting - including everything from Speedlite flashes that can be hidden away or Bowens professional studio lights for a more dramatic effect.
With both aerial and ground we can show our clients in real time what the photos will look like through iPads or MacBooks.
Suffice to say we are equipped to meet most photographic requirements and if not we will always hire whatever is necessary so you get the image you want.
