Here is a passion project Capturing water sports from the air & brings the action to life like never before! The super wide lens makes it look big but believe it or not, we shot everything under 100ft AGL! We spent an evening with MN Inboard out on Lake Minnetonka shooting a couple of professional wakeboarders behind two 2013 Malibu Wakesetters. These guys and gal put on a heck of a performance for us and the boats were equally as impressive! Enjoy the slow motion footage as well. Everything was shot using SONY NEX-7 and SONY FS700.
Have a look at some test footage we shot yesterday with our brand new SONY NEX-FS700 camera. We are excited for a great summer ahead with lots of filming to be done with this from the air! EideCom Media Stay tuned for much more to come as we explore the amazing abilities of shooting at 240 frames per second in full high definition.

Last week we went to NAB to check out some of the best stuff in the industry. Not only are we RC geeks, but we are also a bit obsessed with film production. That said, this post is about all the cool stuff we saw at the 2013 NAB show in Last Vegas.
Radio Control Aerial Cinematography and Photography is exploding. We actually met Emanuel Previnaire, a guy who has flown shots for many major motion pictures as well as winning an Oscar for his work as a pioneer in Radio Control Aerial Cinematography. Below is a photo of one of his special setups. He has gone on to sell them. So if you have $500,000 extra to spend, you can be outfitted with 2 complete setups.
Next is the new FreeFly MoVI M10. It’s a revolutionary 3-axis gimbal that takes camera stability and control to a whole new level. It has brushless direct drive motors with multi axis gyros and accelerometers to ensure a smooth and stable image. They began taking pre-orders with an expected delivery of 3Q 2013. For the hefty price of $15,000 it will be interesting how many people end up purchasing them through their exclusive US distributor Quadrocopter.
The star of the show? I think it was the RED Dragon. You can walk around the entire show….and what do you see? RED. Everywhere. They setup a mobile lab where they began upgrading cameras with the DRAGON sensor and brain. Below is a shot of the modular onsite ultra clean upgrade lab. For around $9,000 you can have your RED EPIC upgraded to a 6K RED DRAGON.
And of course there is FLYSAFE. Our Banner was at the DROIDWORX booth. On May 17-19 here in Minneapolis, we will be putting on the very first ARIA FLYSAFE workshop in conjunction with some major players in the RCAP industry. Come check it out at www.FlySafeTraining.org
