Hi UKC. Thanks for posting my Video. I took this by chance. I was working in Matlock photographing a solar panel installation. It had snowed the night before so getting to the shoot was difficult to say the least. It had been the best part of 15 years since I last climbed at Stanage but it was so close I thought I would go for a walk and remember the good time I spent there. When I saw the Edge covered in snow as it was I just had to get my small GoPrp equipped Multi rotor camera platform out.
The resulting video was what had been posted. It shows all the classic lines from a totally new perspective so one more use of my flying camera platforms. Photographing routes for guides, videoing climbers on crux moves etc, etc.
So who wants photographing then?
How much does one of thos mini helecopter rigs cost, they look great?
A trial of after effects and the stabilize footage effect would make it so much slicker :) Admittedly you lose a little bit having to crop the edges but it makes a world of difference having completely smooth footage.
Yowza! Back to the point'n'shoot on a stick then!
Love it - would be even better if you took the beats out/used an ambient mix.
Aye Up Kemics.
The little MR I used did not have a camera gimbal just a go pro stuck on with Velcro . I usually use this little one for pre main flight checked and to trap video or more often stills for survey work. I had done a job in the morning in Matlock and had not recharged the batts for the biguns... Grr The little one was all I had. I could spend a load of time in post but its kind of raw footage on a raw day.. Anyhow I here what you are saying. I just aint had the time to do to much with it.
Very nice vid, interesting to see the crag from a (slightly) different view point.
Aye Up Pylon King. I am always looking for tracks so if you would like to suggest some I am all ears
