Everyone loves watching high quality aerial shots as they sweep by on the big screen. Traditionally, those shots are captured by movie studios renting full size helicopters with industrial grade cameras attached. Of course, the cost of this setup is more than a normal everyday person could afford, and brings with it several logistical problems as well. For a while now, movie directors and producers have been looking for a suitable alternative using remote controlled mini copters, but could not find one that was stabilized enough for shooting the type of footage they needed.Enter the OM-Copter, a payload deployment system that has eight separate rotors to give it smooth, stable flight. With this mini vehicle, it is now possible to get great footage suitable for use in major movies.And use it they have! Peter Jackson, the man behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the upcoming Hobbit movie used the OM-Copter with a $58,000 camera called the Red Epic. This setup has the ability to capture what is called ultra high def 5k footage. In essence, the Red Epic can capture full RAW data at 30 fps, which gives amazing quality. Jackson and his crew put this bad boy in the air, the results of which will be seen when the Hobbit is released.Check out the video above of a flight with the Red Epic attached, there are some samples of what kind of footage the camera is capturing below too, but being the internet viewers will miss out on the ultra high def video.
