Located in North Yorkshire but operating nationwide throughout the UK, Peter Smith Aerial Photography are now able to offer the ultimate in aerial video. A brand new, latest spec UltraMedia II, 5 axis gyro stabilized, aerial video camera, recording onto a Sony DVW250P Digi-Beta recorder for optimum full broadcast quality, is now available. A Fuji 36:1 lens with 2 times extender gives 72X magnification, producing vibration free results even at great magnification. The camera is nose mounted for maximum versatility, to either a Bell 206 Jet Ranger helicopter for single engine operation, or an AS355 Twin engine Squirrel helicopter for operation over water, cities, low level or hazardous locations requiring a greater safety margin. All our personnel are trained and the helicopters operate under CAA regulations and have AOC approval. Full insurance and public liability cover is in place.

The helicopters are fully equipped with 9” Sony monitors for camera operator, director and pilot. The camera will record in either 16:9 or 4:3 formats as required. A laptop keyboard is used by the camera operator to control all camera functions, including 360 degree azimuth (continuous), +20 to-110 degrees elevation, and + or – 23 degrees of roll, to give perfect results. Gis input is available to log the footage in time and space using Gps receivers, that can then be post processed and integrated with a digital mapping package. Our latest addition allows the picture to be integrated with data from aerial topographical surveys. Latitude and longitude can be overlaid onto the tape for picture identification afterwards. As well as Digi-Beta we can record onto Sony Beta SP, DV Cam or Mini DV if required, full video editing facilities and staff are available.
