DroneBoy can always 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 desire. 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. The camera, drone and gimbal are a perfectly balanced rig. The video downlink and monitor is set up and working flawlessly, and the whole system arrives in close to flight ready condition tested and ready for action.
It is possible to work with your camera but extra time must be allocated for the changeover, balancing and the all important setup process. Setting up a camera 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 A-Camera is not tied up and overall efficiency is higher. For this reason, we always recommend using one of our camera packages whenever possible.
DroneBoy has flown everything from multi camera RED Arrays to large 360 cameras on custom mounts. You name it and we will figure out a way to fly it!
