Aerial filming

Our partner company FILMOFIS AERIALS LTD. has own Shotover K1 Camera Systems,that is the world’s first gyro-stabilized camera system for shooting aerial footage in Ultra High-Definition, Shotover,next generation digital video system announced earlier 2012.The Shotover system provides both 2D and 3D imaging capabilities and features a ground breaking modular design that enables operators to utilize multiple camera and lens combinations depending on their needs. Shotover delivers breathtaking, motion picture quality images in a package that’s portable, user friendly and flexible enough to allow aerial cinematographers to select the camera and lens configuration that best suits their particular shooting requirements ,and not just on a project to project basis, but on an actual shot to shot basis, which means a production can capture the footage it needs in a shorter amount of time than has been traditionally possible. “ Aerial cinematography is one of the few areas of the motion picture industry that has remained relatively unchanged for the past two decades, Shotover makes possible an entirely new model for aerial shooting, not just for DPs, but for producers, directors and production companies who are looking for a more agile system .the great team of investors behind this new product.”Shotover company founder John Coyle, who led development of the new technology, was previously the founder of Cineflex, LLC where he created the first ever high-definition aerial camera system, the Cineflex V14. In 2004,“With Shotover, we have achieved an even higher level of performance”.says Shotover founder Coyle.Cameras and non-export controlled sensors, this system provides the most flexible unit and highest quality image production available.Once you have had a chance to use our system we are sure you will be very satisfied with its performance and capabilities.
