in North Yorkshire but operating nationwide throughout the UK,
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
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.
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.
