For safety and quality, we shoot with a two-man crew, and we are fully insured. We adhere to FAA guidelines. Our pilot always keeps visual contact with the drone, while our navigator guides and directs the shot. Video is taken back to the studio and cropped and stabilized for universal viewing. All video and still images are high definition (HD) and digital for universal media acceptance.
We fly with the Inspire Cinematography platform and camera.
The Inspire has a curved lens design which eliminates distortion, and the 20mm focal length opens up your shots to a remarkably wide angle without that fish-eye look. The camera shoots video at 4K, 4096 x 2150 High Definition.
The 3-axis gimbal constantly draws on data fed by the intelligent flight controller, so it knows the aircraft’s flight parameters and computes the proper motion correction every millisecond. Such precision is only possible because of the ultra-fast, custom-made processor that is unique to the Inspire gimbal. Operating at speeds that allow the gimbal to compensate for motion and tilt in real-time, this processor controls motors on all three axes: yaw, tilt, and roll. All resulting in very smooth and completely stable shots.
