With gimbal for smooth footage
With gimbal for smooth footage

B&H has the Phantom 2 Quadcopter v2.0 with Zenmuse H4-3D Gimbal Kit for just $399 today!!  This is a pro level drone with an awesome gimbal. The gimbal is what makes or breaks your aerial footage, cheap drones don’t have them and you have jerky and barely watchable video from those drones. Drones with quality gimbals produce amazingly smooth video- even if it is your first flight. I am living proof seriously when you let go of the controls the drone uses GPS and the gimbal to just hold in place. You can see some footage I shot in 2014 in Italy with similar gimbal setup- my first time flying and it is rock solid!

Why is the drone so cheap? You need to supply your own GoPro Hero 4. And that is of course something you can use off the drone too for underwater, timelapse or just a tiny go anywhere camera.

Buy from B&H Photo for $399

Some example footage from an older drone with similar gimbal.

 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
