Battery Spencer is a good place to start if it is your first time there. You can always go higher up that hill if there is too much low level fog.

EDIT: Here's an example of how Battery Spencer can be in the fog...and everything else is clear. Hawk Hill is at the far left of this shot.

That's too bad, but that's the weather this time of year. The weather is usually best in October and even then it can be hit and miss. I live an hour's drive north of the Bridge and I'll bet more than 1/2 of my photo trips to the Bridge have been a bust due to the fog.

It's a 5 minute ride up in a 2 man, phone booth size elevator. Then up a 20 foot ladder, then over a big beam, and up another 8 foot ladder, through a hatch and you come out on top.

Just don't look DOWN (external link).  :p

Some images are a bit NSFW(Warning)

That looked a lot smoother than what I've been able to do when I had the Phantom 4. Does your have 'tripod mode"? My biggest problem was to be able to move/pan slow enough to prevent those sudden changes of direction that you've been able to avoid.

Great job 0f a very interesting scene.

That was in P mode but it does have tripod mode. I need to find the setting that allows me to change modes in the air as the selector switch doesn’t work unless on the ground and I keep forgetting. There is a way in the menu to allow changes in the air, I need to find it

You've become a droning mad-man! Woot for you. I took my dinky spark on the trip out west and hardly used it.

:) trying to get some flight time in to get more used to it. Got an idea about putting together lots of small landscape clips into a longer edit with some background music eventually

Beautiful landscapes.
That's very nicely presented.
Interesting use of modern technology.
Do you fly all structures. I gather you're rail bridges etc.

Thanks. I work in the construction industry in the rail sector so we do a lot of structure replacements and refurbs. Planning on using the drone to get some before and after photos of each and a bit of footage here and there too. We do big crane lifts with the replacements so the drone should work out well for capturing that

Superb Mike! Is there a major difference between the output of the a7rii/iii and the medium format Fuji? (For landscaping purposes). I don’t want a switch but just really curious

I’ve seen his work before and it’s pretty awesome. As a MFT owner, he’s an inspiration as to what even “lowly” gear can achieve. Olympus PRO lenses and even their consumer grade primes are no joke. I’m still stunned sometimes at the level of detail I get out of mine. They’re also super cheap, lightweight, and tiny compared to FF lenses. One of the lenses he uses (M.Zuiko 45 1.8) I bought new from Olympus on a Black Friday deal + “loyalty points” for $163! You can build a pretty awesome MFT kit for a very reasonable price.

A question for those using filters. Currently I have an old cheap Cokin P-series set with only a couple of filters. Since getting into landscapes more I think the time has come to invest properly, my question though is what size holders you use, my lenses are the 16-35 f4, 55mm and 100-400mm.

I use the Lee 100mm kit but recently been questioning that. I wouldn’t mind getting something smaller. However if I ever add the 16-35 GM it’s 82mm and would need the lee kit again

At 16mm full frame you are better off using 100mm filters Chris. There are a lot more options about now. The Filter Dude, Nisi, etc When I had 100mm filters back in my wide Canon days it was Lee, Lee, Lee or Hitech I think :)

Oh, & don't buy a filter 'set' ;)

+1 on the filter dude. I buy all my adaptor rings there

—————————————

MP2 owners. I just this minute realised I can tilt the gimbal up and down using the left control wheel :oops:. I was previously doing it with the phone screen meaning I had to let go of one of the sticks.

Is it possible to change the right control wheel to make the gimbal pan left and right? I can’t see the option but that would make controlling everything easier

Thanks guys, last time I looked at them it was just Lee or Hi-Tech (they were cheap back then) now there seems lots of choice (especially if you live in the States :(
