DJI Ronin MX Gimbal

Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon when mounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the M600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI’s flight controller and when attached to vehicles, it connects to an optional GPS module allowing it to stabilize actively for a smoother shot. Fly the Red Dragon, Epic, Scarlet, Alexa Mini, Sony A7RII or A7SII with this gimbal.

DJI Zenmuse Gyro Stabilized Gimbals for GH4, 5D mIII, NEX, and GH4

Gone are the days of shaky, unstable footage! Shaky footage is the number one problem plaguing the aerial photography industry. What good is a view from the sky if the footage is not usable? Through the use of 3-axis gyros, inertial feedback, and special brushless drive modules, the Zenmuse camera gimbal achieves sub-pixel stabilization. Previously this was only achieved with the most expensive full-scale helicopters with Cineflex gimbals costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. For a fraction of that cost, we have achieved perfectly stable footage, even in windy or gusty conditions.

Precision Drones CF Gimbal

For the heaviest payloads, this is the best choice. Fly 3D/Stereoscopic Red Cameras with this gimbal.

Movi Pro & M15 Gimbals

For moderate and heavy payloads, these are the gimbals of choice. Fly mid-size cinema cameras like Red and Alexa with full control over Zoom, Focus and Iris with Movi from Freefly Systems.

Our Preferred Aerial Cameras

Red Epic Dragon 6k

If you are looking for either of these cameras, you probably don’t need me to sell the benefits of using them. We can carry the Epic or Dragon safely with the MOVI MR or MOVI M15 gimbal. We can also carry a pair of REDs with our custom built 3D rig. Please contact us directly for more info on flying a RED.

Arri Alexa Mini

If you are looking for either of these cameras, you probably don’t need me to sell the benefits of using them. We can carry the Epic or Dragon safely with the MOVI MR or MOVI M15 gimbal. We can also carry a pair of REDs with our custom built 3D rig. Please contact us directly for more info on flying a RED.

Panasonic GH4

The Panasonic GH4 is the world’s first mirror-less camera with 4K video recording capabilities. The GH4’s imaging sensor has been extensively updated over the GH3, and while it has the same 16 megapixel resolution, the new Digital Live MOS sensor features wider dynamic range with an expanded ISO 100. The GH4 should is significantly better at handling rolling shutter in both stills and video with up to a 96 frames per second in 1080p. The GH3 blew us away with its video recording features, and now the GH4 provides higher resolution video, both Cinema 4K (4,096 x 2,160) and 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160), but also drastically increased video bit rates practically across the board compared to the GH3.

Canon 5D Mark III

While best suited as a stills camera the 5D Mark III is also a nice video camera. With a useable ISO around 6400 this is a good camera for low light video shoots. Up to 26000 for stills! For video, there’s support for 1080 at 24/25/30p or 720 at 50/60p and utilizing the Magic Lantern hack, we can capture RAW video in 24 and 30p

Blackmagic Production 4k Camera

Shooting Ultra HD 4K with the Blackmagic Production 4K Camera. This camera has a Super 35 sensor with global shutter and supports EF mount lenses. It records in high quality, visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes 422. Combined with the MOVI MR gimbal, this is a great setup for film makers.

Sony FS700

If you need slow motion action shots, this is the camera of choice. With its Super 35 sensor the Sony FS700 can capture bursts of beautiful full resolution HD video at 240 frames per second and up to 960 fps at slightly lower quality. The FS700 is also our recommended solution for aerial sports coverage with an available servo zoom lens and clean digital wireless video link.

DJI X5 and X5R Camera

The Zenmuse X5, the world’s first mirrorless, compact Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and cinematography. Designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1, the Zenmuse X5 packs a powerful sensor that captures 4K video at up to 30 fps and capturing stills at 16MP. It is equipped with a Micro 4/3rds interchangeable lens mount allowing full wireless remote control over focus, aperture, and more.

DJI X3 Camera

DJI’s Zenmuse X3 is designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1 and has a 1/3” sensor that captures 4K video at up to 30 fps and capturing stills at 12MP. It is our most affordable camera solution.
