To film this we used a DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal.

For a video camera we used a GoPro Hero 4 Silver

We shot at 2.7k at 30fps and then slowed to 24fps in post.

Slowing the footage down 20% gives it a slightly dreamy look and shooting at 2.7k and then downsampling to 1080p gives you super sharp video that you can zoom into if needed. I can hardly believe that none of this footage was graded, enhanced, or stabilized in any way. The GoPro was left on “auto everything” for every shot and it did an absolutely stunning job. We’ve actually found that the footage out of this GoPro looks significantly better than the footage from our Nikon D810 cameras.
