5Dmk2 First test flight on RC helicam


Just got done editing the first test flight of the 5Dmk2 on our Remote Control Helicam. I think the camera did really well (I didn't know how it was going to react to vibration from the helicopter). It was really awesome to be able to use any and all of my Canon Lenses like the fisheye....(hold on to your lunch!)

I also included some behind the scenes footage so you can see what the chopper looks like and how stable it is even in a strong wind. I am loving this camera! So far it seems to do everything I need it to well.

Be sure to watch this in high quality if you can

Amazing. Good job.

Marcin Bittner said...

Great! Is your heli custom made? I wonder if it can be bought?

lovay said...

Came for the video, stayed for the soundtrack. Both great.

Zotz said...

Amazing results! I bet survivability is good, considering the camera's robust construction.

John said...

Great intro and marketing job

Huy Cat said...

Impressive. I wonder if you attached the wifi grip if you can see real-time via a laptop what it's recording during flight.

jason anderson said...

you are very brave with the new camera.and skilled good job .

Wow. Very cool.

Now if I were to try that, the heli would have ended up taking my 5D2 to the bottom of the ocean...

I'm also curious if the heli is custom made. That looks like fun.

Tabb Firchau said...

Thanks everyone for taking a look.

The heli is custom made version of a minicopter joker (www.minicopter.de) and the gimbal is available from www.copterworks.com.

We usually fly much larger/heavier HD video cameras like the EX1 or HVX200.

Huy Cat, we have a wireless downlink from the camera which shows what the camera is shooting and allows the camera operator to frame/compose the shot as the pilot flies.

Cheers,

T

I'd love to know which lens was used for the filming.

Great job. It's pretty cool.

Tabb Firchau said...

Lens's used were Canon
15mm fish
20mm Prime
28mm prime (not sure if any of this footage got cut into this clip?)

Excellent! Looks like you have a bright future in Hollywood!

This rig would be perfect for creating Photosynths! Just fly it around any structure and either take photos every 1/2 second or so OR extract frames from the HD video.

Salvado said...

Great Video Tabb! Do you fly the EX1 and HVX200 on that same heli?

RSAWEB said...

Is that Blake Island? Are you helping Leforet film in Hawaii? This is very exciting. Can you recommend an electric RC helicopter to learn on? Or a web site to learn from for someone new to RC?
