I recently came across a video from pomfretvids, a user on youtube, of a few aerial shots taken in Iceland. If you haven’t ever been there, then this video may make you want to plan a trip as it did to me.
The description of the video tells us that the drone (and camera) were taken to some exotic (or at least tongue twisting) places like the Glymur waterfall region, Hvalfjörður, and even caught an aurora (a full list is found at the video). The gear used to make this was a DJI Phantom, mounted with a GoPro Hero 3 Black; the resulting video shows the amazing capabilities of what one could go with a setup like this as well. How crazy is it that they had helicopters filming shots like these for the Lord of the Rings and consumers today can replicate the same epic aerial landscape views for about $800 bucks?
Check out the video below, and leave a comment below on what you think. As the uploader pointed out in Youtube’s comment section, it’s incredible to see how well this drone handles itself with windy environments. There’s so much more possible now with the gear that’s coming out today, and this video can easily be a spokesperson for that.
At least if the drone falls it want fall on anybody’s head.
