I’ve always a dream to fly over Manhattan in a helicopter, thus however I was in town the other day I decided to go for a ride and bring my camera. Well, considering the company I was flying with wouldn't allow me to remove the door or bring anything larger than a handheld camera, I decided to focus mostly on testing my Epic's stills abilities by shooting at a higher frame rate and faster shutter. However this was a great first flight over the city! I plan on chartering a longer stock footage gathering adventure with a gyro once I upgrade to the Dragon sensor. I’ve captured all hand-held at 5K 60fps with a 90° shutter.
