Helioptics is an aerial cinematography company based in the South Island of New Zealand. This clip is a collection of footage captured whilst on location with various clients also while we tested shooting with different cameras.
Helioptics is partnered with Basket Productions this means when the heli isn't flying you can utilise the skill and experience this award winning production company has to offer ,instead of paying for a crew to sit around waiting their turn. More bang of your buck some would say.
Shot with: canon 7D,5D, Sony NX70 and the Sony FS700
Droidworx skyjib 8 Octocopter with Photohigher AV200 3axis gimbal with skyline.
We live in one of the best places on earth for testing camera equipment. This past weekend we took the truck up to an old gold mining field and tested a home made gimbal with the newly implemented Magic Lantern firmware (1.2.3) on the 5DMKiii.We were also testing the Halo film systems 2000 gimbal in handheld mode. Still a bit of learning to do for grading the footage, but not a bad day out when said and done.
Sunday Funday :)
