Camera Drones

drone services

We maintain a large and varied fleet of aerial drones designed specifically for still photo capture, filming, mapping, data collection and inspection missions. Some drone companies have a couple of units and models available while we have over 25 active machines so we always have the right hardware for your mission profile with the appropriate backups on site.  We have everything from small light lift, single operator quadcopter packages to larger medium lift hexarotors (6 blade) and octorotors (8 blade) units capable of flying any mirrorless or DSLR on the market today. For the most demanding projects we can provide custom built heavy lift drones capable of flying everything from cinema cameras and lenses like the RED or Arri Mini and Sony Venice to LIDAR, FLIR and any other sensor payload you could want.   We are now flying FPV Camera Drones too!

Ultra Heavy Lift Drone Canada

ULTRA Heavy Lift Class DRONE

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 Class DRONE

This is the large octorotor (8 blade) drones like our awesome Aeronavics Skyjib X4XL and our Freefly ALTA8. 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.

Medium Lift Class DRONE

Here we have the larger, professional grade hexarotor (6 blade) and octorotor (8 blade) machines. These are dual operator setups that carry high end video capable DSLRs and mirrorless cameras like the Z-Cams, Red Komodo and the amazing new Sony A7SIII and A7RIV. This class of drone is perfect for projects where cinematic film quality is required and the budgets are a little higher. In this range of drone and camera package we can offer up to 63 mega pixel stills as well as RAW, ProRes and DNG video output for superior quality imaging, better dynamic range and amazing post production color correction capabilities. These medium lift drones are a terrific balance of cost, image quality and ease of implementation.

Light Lift Class DRONE

This includes the smaller quadcopter (4 blade) Mavics, Phantoms, as well as the full range of Inspire class drones. Our go to in this class is most definitely the Inspire 2 with either the X5S (5K Video) or the X7 (6K Video) camera package. These drones are single or dual operator setup and come with a range of small sized camera options. With these systems we can shoot up to 24mp still images and up to 6k video in Cinema DNG RAW or Apple Prores RAW. This class of drone is perfect for smaller budgets, rapid deployment and getting gear into hard-to-reach places (think mountain tops and volcanoes etc.) The photo and video quality of this class of drone is amazing!

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 color correct it and provide you with the finished product with a very short turn around.
