This week we discuss a shoot we recently completed for a soccer documentary on Sir Stanley Matthews (WIKI), who was a very famous soccer legend. This was a larger budget production with lots of crew and coordinating. The director was used to doing things in a more traditional manner and after seeing the quality of the footage as well as the angles that we could get with a multicopter, he said that it added a whole new element that he would love to incorporate into future projects.
We also discuss a topic that has been pretty hot lately; what can drones really see? The results are not as detailed as many hype about in the media. Check out this article/study and you can see for yourself, click HERE

TIP OF THE WEEK
When shooting using a GH4 and a Zenmuse gimbal at 4K, you might have a hard time getting the FPV video signal out of the gimbal. It works fine at 1080 but when you switch to 4K, the FPV monitor goes blank. To fix this you must change the video out on the camera to output in 1080. It defaults to AUTO and the Zenmuse requires 1080.
