Skyhawk Vision and the future

About the drone industry

Professional photography is limited to capturing only where the human can physically go. Though there are instruments and tools that allow for cameras to be placed at difficult locations, they can be cumbersome and make professional videographer or photographer’s job more difficult. Aerial photography is one solution that enables film and photo professionals to capture images at a new perspective.

Recent advances in camera, flight and battery technology means that Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) are now capable of obtaining footage at a quality comparable to that achieved by manned aircraft. Combined with the fact that RPAs can be used closer to the ground and nearer to people than manned aircraft, this means that they are becoming an incredibly versatile tool for filmmakers across a wide variety of genres. RPAs have been used to replace dolly and jib shots in awkward locations and can be used for dramatic lift and zoom shots.

The majority of RPA operators will be significantly cheaper than hiring a helicopter. The ability to monitor the footage from the ground allows for directorial input to the flight team and immediate review of the footage. Control methods vary and include traditional transmitters, tablet and laptop control. The control method employed will be dictated by the type of filming required.

Production companies are hiring professional aerial videographers to add something a little extra to their video. Low-level aerial video is becoming more and more popular on both the amateur and professional level. The machines used for low-level aerial video are quite amazing and the technology is advancing very quickly.There are things that low-level aerial video can do that neither traditional aerial video or large cranes can do.
