Yes, I can capture that straight on "bird's eye" perspective, but so far it still has a tiny bit of shimmy in the footage. Several of my clients have said that the view is so striking, they don't care, but I'm aiming for perfection. We're designing and building a new mount that I hope removes that last little vibration. Additionally, of course, if I'm shooting from a helicopter I can have the pilot fly me sideways and get the same effect.
I thought that this would be a valuable commodity to be able to produce, but I'm overwhelmed by the interest. One of the great advantages to the system I am developing is that I can take it anywhere in the world, air to air, air to ground, air to sea, it's infinitely adaptable. Just the mention of the capability sends my clients into a brainstorming frenzy, which is a very good thing.
My entire video arsenal is composed of Sony equipment, from POV up to the FS7 and each camera has a specific niche in the process. Kind of nice that the system has come together the way it has. The challenge now is continuing to make it all as instinctively familiar to me as my still gear. This has been daunting over the past year, but extremely interesting and now that I'm beginning to see applications and results, very energizing.
