Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at cinema grade drones.

No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.

Cinema drones

Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones equipped with cinema cameras that record in 8K or greater glory.

Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:

Drone legal and safety

Expensive idea

This video from Phil Holland shows off one of the most powerful and somewhat overkill aerial video setups available to-date. This video, while uploaded to YouTube in 8K glory, was filmed using the RED Weapon Monstro 8K camera. A machine that shoots at over 100 megapixels. A wonderful view of New York City.

Great idea

This video comes from Source Films, also using RED Weapon Monstro 8K camera, they produce an amazing video to watch. Following a mountain biker through the hills of SoCal along with some great cinematic shots of the landscape makes for a perfect drone video.


Good idea / bad idea wrap up

As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.

If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
