At 2 C BEYOND we use the very latest Aerial Photographic equipment which enables us to capture either 4K UHD video at 30 fps or Full HD at 60 fps. The results will be delivered in Web friendly formats such as MP4 & MOV.
Photographic stills are captured using a 16MB fully gimbaled 4/3 MFT camera which is fitted with the latest Panasonic Lumix 15mm G Leica lens. These images can be delivered in either a JPEG or DNG format.
Clients, at all times, will have the ability to view what the camera sees and even have full control over its operation. We are happy to work with you or to hand over full operation of the camera with control over orientation, camera Pan, Pitch, Focus, Aperture whilst at all times the Aerial drone’s position is controlled by the pilot.
Some of the terminology used by drone pilots / photographers can be confusing so here is a brief guide –
It’s likely that you have heard these terms before. they are used a lot when trying to describe Photography and video equipment but also Televisions. UHD stands for Ultra High Definition and Full HD stands for Full High Definition. Both terms refer to the number of pixels used to make up an image. UHD, or 4K as it is known, means there are 4 times the number of pixels in an image when compared to Full HD. This makes for stunning levels of detail when shooting.
FPS (Frames per Second) is an indicator of the number of times an image is refreshed each second. To put this into context when you go to the cinema to watch a movie then that will be shown at a rate of 24FPS. When you are watching the latest blockbuster on SKY that will be running at 30FPS. We offer the best image quality available, UHD 4K, at 30 FPS. From time to time we do find a requirement to shoot at 60FPS. In the past this has been for fast paced events such as sporting contests like white water rafting, horse racing etc.
A lot of the time people will just click on a file and expect it to open. To ensure our clients are no different we provide all of our media in Web friendly formats that can be run on a PC or Mac with no problems. We do this for both our videos and stills to ensure the client can access their media no matter what type of device they choose to view it on.
Put simply this is a device that helps stabilise the camera when in motion. Ever wondered how those outside broadcasts on BBC one look better than your own IPhone videos? That is because professional photography uses hardware to offset the bumps of a human or Aerial Drone. It’s a very simple but clever device that ensures we deliver crystal clear stable images on your behalf.
