Thought I would share one of my four cameras I had recording the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017. This was taken in southern Illinois over the Lake of Egypt near Marion. You will notice a distant (6.5 mile away) unpaved airports runway lights automatically turn on as the moon blocks the sun, before they turn back off (upper left corner). The colors were so surreal that color correcting seemed a bit off even though I remember the way it really looked. You can see the shadow approaching from the bottom right of the screen, and after the moon passes you will see the shadow come back in the opposite direction before I do spin to show the area I was flying. I experienced 2 1/2 min of complete totality. This was taken with manual exposure settings on a DJI Phantom 4 from about 380ft AGL. I filmed in d-log at 4k cinematic, 24fps and sped it up into a time-lapse. Used the lowest neutral density filter I had, which was a PolarPro ND-4 . Custom settings were -2 for sharpness, contrast and exposure. I used FCPX to do color correction and edit this short sample to share with you all. I have lots more footage of this spectacular experience to share with the world, from my Canon XH A1s, Celestron brand telescopes & binoculars, DJI OSMO+, GoPro Hero 4 Black and some iPhone7. Expect some more visual goodies very soon! Cheers and safe flying, -Ryan Deremo SkyFly Cinematics
Dear UAV people, I read an introduction is much appreciated so here I go..I'll try to keep it short;-) I'm considereing buying an Phantom 4 in a few weeks.. I am someone that tries to get back in his old skill- and toolset and I am currently looking for work. I graduated as a Multimedia designer a long time ago.. (but in this galaxy). I worked as a 3D modeler on computer games, virtual reality- and video presentations and once in a while I still work on filmfestival shorts as a volunteer doing FX, titles, illustrations..animations. At some point it was necesary to adapt to the situation and I got into software testing and skilled support. But because the IT sector, where I worked in the last couple of years, makes me die from the inside out I am currently persuing the wish to make coorporate video productions with VR and 360 initiatives on the side. I am someone with ideas and I need to place my creativity somewhere. There are some plans on the drawing board to create a decent portfolio where I can show-off beautifull shot edits and 360 applications to get my first paying customer The first few will have te be done for free :-S. I am well aware of the potential of the chosen equipment and the potential and prices of the more professional stuff.. this is something for later or rent. I need to start very modest with a DSLR, a Phantom4 and a Gear 360. I have some good network connections around me in the field (I will definately need a sound guy) so I hope these ingredients and my 300% motivation can make this all work. The alternative is save money but certain death..(No offence, I'm just not an IT man). Are there any like minded souls around here..maybe with some experience on the choices that are up ahead? And considering a small start budget I wonder if my assumption about the P4's possabilities to deliver semi pro footage is correct? Thnx and Regards, Vincent
