    This was a training exercise. They burned down 3 houses. I shot the whole thing from inside my van with the doors closed, because is was around 0 F.

    Cool. Is there any other footage from the exercise? You might try and mix stuff in.

    How much actual footage did you shoot to a five minute presentation. How many batteries did you burn through to get the footage?

    I agree, like some cuts from a music video or cooking show. It'd look real bad-ass if Snoop Dog was fryin some chicken!

    I shot 65 mins and used 3 1/2 batteries. The rest of the video is just more of the same way, but that is what the fire department wanted. They wanted to study how people performed.

    One suggestion which I have been working on myself... When you turn the craft or move the camera, try to do so in more of a smooth manner. It's easy to video something and when you decide to pan to the right for instance, you knock trim over so hard it almost jerks in a direction.

    Not criticizing, just constructive criticism which I've been working on myself.

    Nice but too much movement with the camera. The best thing to do is move the camera to a position and leave it for at least 30+ seconds. It gives time to for a persons eye to focus in on what is happening and look around. Easy movements on the gimbal too. :)
