This is what I mean by “drones,” by the way:
Remote-controlled, multi-rotor consumer drones, which can cost as little as a few hundred bucks. More expensive models can carry heavier camera rigs; most of these videos, however, were shot with off-the-shelf DSLR cameras.
Some of these shots could have been taken with a helicopter, albeit at much greater expense. Many, though, are either too close to the ground, taken in tight spaces, or filmed indoors. Drones are developing a visual language all their own — a slow, drifting, rising, rising, falling and sweeping aesthetic that we haven’t quite seen before.
Here are some of the best example on Vimeo:
- Two University of Cincinnati officers who arrived on scene shortly after Samuel Dubose was fatally shot have been placed on leave, and their body camera footage has been released.
- An ultra-Orthodox man stabbed six people at Jerusalem's gay pride parade on Thursday.
- Atlanta police are searching for two white men who were caught on security cameras placing Confederate flags at a historic church.
