The days of our parent’s vacation videos are over. Nobody wants to watch 25 minutes of unedited, shaky, hand-held video of your kids running around in a hotel room.
I’ve never been drawn to do a vacation video until I bought my quadcopter, and the results were inspiring! I am a total newbie when it comes to flying the Phantom 2, and this is by far the most video edited I’ve ever done at one time. But for a first video, the results weren’t too bad! The drone footage ups the production value quite a bit! Check it out-
About the gear used:
- Quadcopter: DJI Phantom 2 with the H3-3D Gimbal for the aerial shots.
- Aerial Camera: GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition (I also had one for the water, etc)
- Video camera: Canon 6D – For all the other land shots
Locations visited included Sint Maarten (St. Martin), Île Fourchue (island near St. Maarten), Sint Eustatius (Statia), and Saint Barthélemy (St. Barths).
