Came across this beautiful short video from the Skymotion Video Company using a 5Diii shooting from a remote controlled helicopter. The video takes place in the Niagara Falls and Niagara on The Lake, Ontario area. Loved some of the unique views over the falls.

Very very nice. A more affordable option would be the DJI Phantom and Go Pro

That looks really amazing. Can I ask, how did you keep everything in focus throughout the shot? I'm wanting to get into video recording the a DSLR and I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Was it a certain wide angle lens you had on there?

OMG that is so cool, the possibilities are endless. I wonder if you need a license or permit to fly it in public?

Shame you can't do that in the US.

Commercial use of UAVs is verboten (with obvious exceptions like closely controlled production environments)

Just pulling up to say, a house or a business and launching is a big no no per the FAA.

Not my video, but the company that shot it said it was mainly taken with a 24mm lens and a 16mm for the wine tasting group. They don't say if they were L's, but I would guess they probably were.

How's it different from a regular R/C chopper? And there surely is a permit available, right?


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

You are using it for commercial purposes and transmitting video frequency, from my lack of knowledge it is illegal and there is no permit.

If you didn't have a monitor, just a 5D duct-taped to a chopper? ;)
