London helicam specialises in high end aerial imaging and footage. We use a custom designed gyro-stabilised 8 rotor drone, capable of shooting steadicam like footage from the air.
Our drone pilots have been flying all their lives and won several awards - we do not recommend trying to fly an octocopter with a heavy payload without sufficient experience - it can prove to be a costly excercise at best, and dangerous for bypassers at worst.
Using London Helicam can be very cost effective compared to traditional aerial shoots, and allows for previously unimaginable shots that would have required costly and slow CGI.
Our crew has years of experience spanning engineering, electronics, cinematography, editing and post-production and we have flown our drones in feature films, commercials and television productions. We deliver a full package including pre-planning, insurance, permissions, all the necessary equipment, remote control gyro stabilized camera head, camera with Zeiss lenses, wireless video assist and crew of two people with years of remote flying experience. All the equipment fits in flight cases and is ready to shoot in 15 minutes of arrival.
We are currently flying many different copters for different tasks. Flying weight about 13kg with camera and 3 customised octocopters with custom electronics, gyro stabilisation and patented quick release mechanism for fast assembly and disassembly.
We offer several cameras and lenses - Canon 5Dmk III, RED Epic, Scarlet, Ikonoskop a-cam DII, Panasonic AF100, Canon C300 etc. Our camera of choice is always the RED Epic.
The lenses included in our RED Epic package are Tokina 11-16 f2.8, Zeiss 21mm f2.8, Canon L24mm f1.2. You can however specify your own lenses if necessary.
We also have extensive experience in post-production, particularily with RED Epic workflow, and have developed custom algorithms for turning the RAW video footage into beautiful images. The high dynamic range of the sensor is unprecedented in video, and to be able to take full advantage of it requires novel methods of image processing.
We will be happy to chat about your project, give advice and recommendations - just give us a call or drop us an email.
We can also organise a face to face meeting or a demo session in the London area.
