Camera Drones

camera drone services

We maintain a large and varied fleet of aerial drones designed specifically for film making, still photo capture, mapping, data collection and inspection missions. Other drone companies have a couple of units and models available while we have over 25 active machines with backups and spares so we always have the right hardware for your mission profile.  We have a full range of drones capable of flying just about any payload you could want.  We are now flying FPV Camera Drones too!

CONVENTIONAL CINEMA DRONES
Ultra Heavy Lift Drone Canada

ULTRA HEAVy LIFT

Our brand new Freefly ALTA X Ultra Heavy Lift Drones are beasts capable of flying payloads up to 35lbs and moving at speeds in excess on 100km/h. With this amazing machine we can fly virtually any camera and lens package safely and effectively with power to spare. Now we can fly the Ronin-2 gimbal, the Sony Venice camera and just about any lens you want. Directors and Cinematographers can shoot with the gear they choose and can fly it with the most reliable hardware on the market. We also have cameras and lens packages that are pre-configured for optimal results OR we can fly your gear. Our ALTA X heavy lift drones are the only way to go if you want to fly the very best cameras and lens packages from a very nimble aerial platform.

Heavy lift

This is the large octorotor (8 blade) drones like our awesome Freefly ALTA8s. These units are always dual operator setups and come with a full operations team. This class of drones feature heavy-duty camera stabilizing gimbals that can support camera packages that weight up to 16lbs. This means we can fly cameras like the RED, the ARRI Mini, high-speed cameras (Phantom etc.) and many others. Of course we have remote follow focus and adjustable iris control as well as remote roll/stop and some camera settings control too.

LIGHT & MEDIUM Lift

This includes the smaller drones with integrated camera systems like our Inspire 3, Inspire 2 and the Mavic series These drones are single or dual operator setup and come with a range of camera options. With these systems we can shoot up to 48mp still images and up to 8k video in Cinema DNG RAW or Apple Prores RAW.


FPV (FIRST PERSON VIEW) DRONES

BEAST CLASS GIMBALED FPV

FPV used to mean a compromise between camera quality, speed, stability and control. Not any more! Our BEAST dual OP FPV drones can fly just about any camera package out there and point that camera wherever you want it. All the speed and agility of our small FPV drones with the quality and control of our Heavy Lift fleet. Amazing!

The smallest possible FPV drones that fly stripped down "de-cased" GoPros allow us to fly and film places that were not possible before. These tiny drones enable us to create the FPV "oner" videos that are so wildly popular right now. Click here for more information on that awesomeness.

cameras, gimbals & cable cams

We can also supply a selection of CAMERAS, lenses and camera gimbals to give you a perfectly fluid, steady shot every time. There are some instances where drones may not be practical and for those situations we are offering CABLE CAM rigs.  All our aerial filming packages come with downlink technology that gives us a live preview to field monitors. For live events we can also offer real time HD video streaming for live playback. On all production shoots we provide full redundant back up of all mission critical systems to guarantee you zero downtime. At the end of the shoot we can give you the raw footage on a portable hard drive, SD card or we can edit and colour correct it and provide you with the finished product with a very short turn around.  CONTACT US today for more information and pricing details.
