This Telescope FPV Timelapse Shows What Astrophotography Feels Like

My love of astronomy started way back as a child when my dad bought a Celestron C8 telescope. I remember spending hours with him searching to find a single dark sky object. This love of the night sky stuck with me and it wasn't until 2012 I made a New Year's resolution to go out for one night each month near the new moon to do astronomy, astrophotography, and time-lapse of the night sky.

Insane Dive Off World’s Tallest Waterfall Shot by FPV Drone

Filmmaker Ellis van Jason has published a video where he takes his first-person-view (FPV) drone straight over the edge of Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall in the world. Without this type of drone, the jaw-dropping view would otherwise be impossible to capture quite like this.

These Guys Strapped a RED Camera to a 100mph FPV Racing Drone

Filmmaker and YouTuber Potato Jet recently teamed up with first person view (FPV) racing drone pilot Paul Nurkkala to try something kind of crazy: they strapped Potato Jet's RED cinema camera to a custom-built, high-speed octa-copter and took it for a spin... and a flip... and a few more maneuvers besides.

Jonathan Lucan of Lucan Productions recently came up with an ingenious "hack" that allowed him to capture "dynamic and innovative shots" that look like they were shot with an FPV drone... except that they weren't. They were captured using a GoPro HERO 6, a 9-foot selfie stick, and a OneWheel.

Camera-Equipped Copter Beams FPV to Goggles for Beautiful Aerial Imagery

We're getting to the point at which photographers can buy fancy aerial drones without having to sell a kidney. You've probably already seen photos and videos shot from camera-equipped radio-controlled helicopters before, but did you know that the camera's view can be beamed to a pair of goggles, allowing the photographer to be immersed in a first-person-view of what he or she is shooting?
