Tools Of The Trade

We use a combination of the DJI Inspire Pro and DJI Phantom depending on the situation.  These UAV’s have great mobility and outstanding flight performance in a range of conditions. They are easy to setup and quick to get in the air, which helps to bring down the costs of Aerial photography and filming service  while still being able to achieve professional results.

We also offer a dual operator ability which allows the camera gimbal to be controlled completely separate from the main controller which allows for more dynamic shots as well as allowing the client to find the perfect angle.

The X5 is unique as it also has the option of a very flat D-Log colour space (D-Log is a special gamma created for post production / editing purpose) which can pick up a larger and more dynamic range which makes it more suitable for heavy grading.  This helps achieve better results in post production.
