Fisheye aerial with 5dmk2 and Helicam

Little variation on a morning dog walk:

5dmk2 with 15 fisheye and remote helicopter.

Jeff,

Damn... I like it. Now I just spent the last hour looking up this whole helicam concept. I was looking at chartering a real one to get some stock footage.

I assume you have an RC of your own with the camera carrying apparatus underneath. Can you give us a little more info on the rig.

I wish I not see your video
Because now I want to become a 5d mkII pilot. All my goal in life are change and my finance will probably be too.

Thank you

Exactly, it is by far the most challenging thing I have done, but it also has provided the biggest reward.

Best,

If you are interested in this type of shooting or want to see more check out the following sites...

RunRyder RC Helicopter Topic - Operator Links - Aerial Photography & Video - Page 1

Aerial Videography and Photography - HeliFreak

I can tell you form personal experience that this is not something you just decide to "give a go". I've been flying RC helicopters for about three years and still do not have the courage to put $3000-$4000 of camera gear under an $2000 heli. The guys who are doing it with their photography or video are making great money doing it (if they are any good) but it is a HUGE money investment. There is a whole lot more to it than just strapping a camera to a helicopter and going. Just the mount, downlink, monitor and various needed electrical rc components will set you back a couple grand. It is however really awesome to see what some people are doing. Check it out!

I loved the clip, Jeff, and the fish-eye view added a new dimension to the aerial footage.

I think however, that a few seconds of near ground-level footage close-up of the man with dogs would have added to the overall feel of the short clip.
