Also... what has become really popular is something known as 'cinewhoop'. A little FPV drone with ducted fans with either Runcam or GoPro attached. Daily Dose of Internet often uses such clips found on Instagram in his videos:

Increasingly starting to be used for commercial projects... random (not really aerial) examples:

I love Dan Proud's work. I think what attracts me to it is that he's a photographer primarily, so light and composition are at the forefront of his images. The motion of the drone comes second to add an extra punch to an already amazing image, unlike a lot of 'drone guys' where the wow factor only comes from how small a gap they can fly through or how close to they can get to the action.

Great find. I just ran through a bunch of his videos. That Inspire X7 image is really nice, its going to be my next drone, I shoot a lot of high contrast scenes and the Mavic Pro 2 hits its limits sooner than I'd like.

That's a guy getting up at 3am on the regular to get the shots. 

Good photography, good light. 

He's putting in a fair bit of travel time as well. Many of these locations are only accessible by 4WD, helicopter or boat. And some are a couple of days drive from the nearest town.

"F8 and be there" it's that simple most of the time. 

It's the "be there" part that's hard.

Your stuff is one of the best aerial footage we can actually find on web or anywhere -- here are the links to the subforum Andrew created for us and where this thread misplaced here by my fault : ) should actually be located as well:

 

By my mistake too, I also re-posted some other video already linked before when it should be this experience of 3 hours and 40 minutes (yeah, you read it well : D) here made in the beautiful Croatian landscapes:

 

There's also this series of portraits by air and country I have no idea if you've ever noticed (aired on National Geographic):

And powerful shots don't necessarily mean to be captured in motion, so here is a marvelous row of those:

This planet is plenty of different locations to give to the world to see and business opportunities from networks for local shooters... I imagine the beautiful Greece as for instance ; -)

Yeah, same guys with many other countries also covered : ) I meant a few other birds... Once YT seems to be so popular among us, I meant to see from a distinct origin over these boards ; ) as that particular footage used to be posted by @OliKMIA one of the fewest if not the only one to do it here : -)

Thanks for the kind words mate.

@Trek of Joy Beautiful video of Kimberley. The grading is amazing!

You're welcome, pal : ) Thanks for your heads-up and to @Kisaha as well on his most recent YT entry (LOL my brother, you have no idea of my open smile now when I've just typed it) on Autel's bird issues report, so here's my best bet then:

 

People say it cannot fly by night (I might wonder only on autonomous mode, no?), so no idea on any workaround to overcome it if so.
