What did it take to get those sweet shots of the Phantom 2 Vision flying in our intro video? Two supremely skillful pilots and the Phantom 2 Vision's big brother, the S800 Evo. It took a lot of planning but with patience and a bit of practice, we got the shots we were looking for.
Want to try a similar shoot? Here's what we used:
DJI A2 Flight Controller
DJI 5.8GHz Video Downlink
DJI Z15-GH3 Gimbal
OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f2.0 Lens
Canon 5D Mark 3
Canon 70-200 2.8
If you haven't already seen it, watch the Phantom 2 Vision introduction video here:
To prove that the Phantom 2 Vision's battery lasts 25 minutes in flight, we flew one of our Vision's on a windy day until the battery was completely drained. To simulate a typical flight, we had FPV transmission turned on and was recording 1080p video at the same time. Hovering in one place allowed us to keep the Phantom in the frame and actually takes more power to do than flying around.
To save you 25 minutes of time, we sped up the footage as the Vision flew next to an analog clock. This video is only 1:30, we'd rather you spend 25 minutes soaring through the air with one of our Visions. To learn more, please visit dji.com/phantom-2-vision
