Philadelphia Aerial 4K

Philadelphia in 4K

Occasionally, we’ll grab footage for personal use or for resale. Many cities have strict regulations on flying drones (as they should) and Philadelphia is no exception. Knowing what airspace you’re in and if you can fly in it or not is part of everyday work when flying a drone.

Getting the most interesting footage often involves filming at inopportune times. Having the right equipment to properly capture a city lit up at night can make the difference between something undeliverable and something spectacular.

Equipment We Used

DJI Mavic 2 Pro

In addition to being lightweight and portable, the Mavic 2 Pro’s Hasselblad camera is excellent in low light making it the perfect choice for twilight and nighttime shots in the city.

DJI Smart Controller

Bright enough to be seen in the middle of the day, the large screen on this controller is a favorite for us. It gives us the tools necessary to have well composed and exposed shots in all conditions.

Polar Pro Filter Set

Shooting in changing light can be challenging. We have a high standard for anything that sits between the lens and the outside world. Polar Pro deliver consistently allowing us to shoot in extreme lighting conditions.
