Blue Sky: Your Complete Aerial Filming Solution…

  • Gyro stabilised 5-axis nose-mounted camera.
  • The Gyro Stabilised Systems (GSS) C516 aerial filming platform complete with Red EPIC DRAGON or Sony F55 camera & Angénieux Optimo Style 25-250 lens. The 6K Ultra HD results are out of this world when combined with the rock solid stability of the GSS C516 or the ShotOver F1.

  • Company owned KS8X2 gyro side-mount.
  • Whilst a cheaper option than the GSS C516 or Shotover F1, the results are still exceptional for GV work. The mount can be fitted with any DSLR (eg. Canon 5D MII) or Sony EX3, Panasonic HVX200, HPX170, Arri Alexa M or even the Red Epic/Scarlet into our R44 helicopter within 10 minutes.
  • You can supply the camera person or we can…
  • High definition 1080i camera permanently mounted onto the R44 helicopter in a fixed forward position. From the HD camera we then feed the signal into our Convergence Design Nanoflash… Using two internal processors, the Nanoflash records MPEG2 8-bit 4:2:2 video in either Long GOP or iFrame at data rates up to 160Mb/s (Long GOP) or 280 Mb/s (iFrame). We recommend MPEG2 Long GOP, 100 Mb/s. This filming option works well for survey & GV filming where zooming is not required.

“As a full time helicopter aerial cinematographer, I have spent more than 30 years developing a global network of highly skilled, talented and specialist pilots who can operate a helicopter more like a “camera ship” than an aerial taxi. Blue Sky Helicopters are one of only two companies in Australia I choose to fly with on my complex and often very challenging aerial shoots and they have my total support and recommendation as consummate, helicopter professionals”
