Heard they rehearsed for 2 days then did it in one take. They got very close to that light! I've watched it a few times and it interesting to focus on only the operators moves and not on what the camera is doing. Also pay attention to the solid objects like walls instead of the performers and you'll notice all the minor course corrections. Very good work though!We were there in August, so it's cool to see the Observatory. Some sneaky editing in that clip too, but a very nice use of a drone.
Yes it is a m4/3 sensor but the bitrate still max's out at 60Mbps. The larger sensor gives you a better dynamic range and better low light capabilities but still not getting a super high bitrate like 100Mbps. While looking for the bitrate I came across a couple of things I did not know about. Discovery channel requires 160Mbps for there broadcast stuff, and the X5 camera cannot use all m4/3 lenses because of balance. Just some interesting info I saw. Yes I would still love to have something like the X5 on my H.Yes, it could be done with a Typhoon with dual operator. But remember that the Inspire as a micro 4/3 camera with a high transfer rate. I also be more comfortable having a a second fpv camera for the drone operator... and yes, lot of work do the drone, dancers choreography
I have been a m4/3 photographer for about 4-5 years after selling off all my Canon gear. I currently use a GH3 and GX7 with a number of different lenses. I am in the process of building a larger hex to carry a larger camera but I'm taking my time on that build as I have many other multirotors (15) that keep me busy.
