Depending on your needs we will usually provide the camera and lens package that you require for your shoot. We stock all the cameras used in our standard packages and can source just about any camera and lens combination you could want. We find that it is much more efficient if we provide the camera package as it enables us to arrive at your shoot fully prepared with a dedicated “flying camera”. The camera, drone and gimbal are a perfectly balanced rig with very little fine-tuning required on site. The video downlink and monitor is tested and working flawlessly, and the whole system arrives in very close to flight ready condition.
It is possible to work with your camera but time must be allocated for the changeover, balancing and the all important setup process. Setting a camera up on a drone is not as simple as attaching a camera to a tripod! Usually we will ask for your camera a day in advance to save time on the shoot day. If we provide the camera for the aerial filming your hero camera is not tied up and overall efficiency is much better. We always recommend using one of our camera packages whenever possible.
