Helicopters are the perfect platform for stills photography and film and there are several ways of shooting from helicopters.
The simplest is to remove one or more doors, which can quite legally and safely be done on all our helicopters, and the cameraman, securely attached by harness, is free to pan in a wide arc as the pilot positions the helicopter for the best shot for a great many roles, and certainly for stills work, the results are perfect.
If greater stabilisation of the camera equipment is required, a range of side and nose mounted operating systems can be fitted to our Jetranger Helicopters.
A Tyler Mini Gyro, which is a hand held, tri/monpod supported assist system is another alternative. All of these systems can co-ordinate with both SD or HD. For clients requiring the best, a full gyroscopically stabilised Cineflex nose mounted ball system can be provided.
