Equipment

Flight Visuals currently flies a DJI Mavic 2 Pro, a small, highly-maneuverable drone that carries a Hasselblad camera , a 1-inch CMOS sensor, and an f/2.8-f11 lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24mm. The camera shoots still images at 20 megapixels and video at 4K. It has a three-axis gimbal and omnidirectional obstruction sensors.

We also use a DJI Mavic Air, another small, highly-maneuverable unmanned aircraft that shoots still images at 12 megapixels, panoramas at 32 megapixels, and video at 4K. The camera is mounted on a three-axis gimbal and integrates a 1/2.3” 12-megapixel CMOS sensor and an f/2.8 lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24mm. The aircraft itself features three-direction environmental sensors to avoid collisions.

On the ground, we shoot with a Canon EOS 80D at 24 megapixels. Our lens kit features a Canon 18-55mm zoom, a Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 zoom , and a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 zoom. All our lenses have auto-stabilizers. For smooth, ground level video, we use the Canon on a Zhiyun Crane 2 with Servo Follow Focus and a three-axis gimbal.

For simple jobs, we have a DJI Osmo + with a three-axis gimbal on hand. This camera features a ZenMuse X3 lens with a 7× zoom, consisting of 3.5× optical and 2× digital lossless zoom (at 1080p) for a 22-77mm range. (1/2.3″ CMOS censor) that shoots still images at 12mp and video at 4K.

Production is handled on our iMac with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and Aurora HDR for stills and Final Cut Pro and Wondershare Filmora for video. We also carry a MacBook Pro onsite for quick initial production work, if required.
