Sky Blue Videography

Scroll down to find out more about us and our equipment!

OUR TEAM

With today's technology and GPS services, drones literally "fly themselves". However, it takes more than a built-in GPS system to know how to set up the right shot, how to create the most visual appeal, how to tell a good story with aerial video, and how to edit the video into a wonderful visual experience! After many years of photography/video editing and radio control experience, we can offer all of the above!

In addition, we are a full-service photography business that offers state-of-the-art aerial and still photography. We use high-end UAV/Drone technology. We are legal and insured. We are FAA approved with an FAA 333 exemption issued through Gowdy Brothers Aerospace.

We respect the rights of others and do not video anyone or anything without express permission. The overhead nature of aerial photography can provide a unique perspective for an unlimited number of applications.

SkyBlue Videography has a wealth of experience! This strong partnership is the backbone of everything we do.

Our Equipment

We use professional equipment. For aerial videography, we use the DJI Phantom 4, the DJI Phantom 4 Professional, and the DJI Inspire 1 Professional. All of these units enable us to capture in 1080P HD, 2.7K and 4K UHD video and stills. We use the DJI OSMO hand-held gimbal for indoor footage and closeups. Post-production video footage is processed by using Adobe professional software products. In addition, we use the new DJI Z3 zoom camera that features a 7x zoom capability.

We want your video experience to "come alive"! The equipment we use produces stunning video and stills. Please contact us and tell us about your video needs. We are sure that you will not be disappointed! 

Osmo Handheld

The Osmo’s Zenmuse X3 camera works as one with the stabilization system. It brings you 4K video at 24, 25 or 30 frames
per second so you could even shoot for the big screen, and captures photos at 12 megapixels in Adobe DNG RAW,
opening up shots that you never thought possible before.

DJI Inspire 1 Professional

Carbon fiber arms give the strength to maneuver in the air and they transform, moving out of the camera’s way at the flick of a switch. With a full 360⁰ unobstructed view, we now have the freedom to capture shots independent of the flying direction. In addition, the Inspire 1 incorporates the following:
1/2.3” sensor
Record at 4096 × 2160 (25fps) or
1920 × 1080 (60fps)
12MP photographs
22-77mm equivalent focal length
3.5 × optical zoom
2x lossless digital zoom
Enhanced yaw stability

DJI Phantom 4 Professional

The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production.

DJI Phantom 4

We can shoot sharp, clean video in up to 4K at 30fps and Full HD 1080p at 120fps for slow motion, through a newly designed lens that dramatically increases sharpness. An advanced 3-axis gimbal takes out unwanted vibration and movement in-flight, enabling the camera to capture smooth and fluid footage even during complex maneuvers.
