Drone Footage Shot with 135mm Long Lens


Most of the time you see drone footage shot with super wide-angle lenses: 14mm, 24mm, maybe a 35mm. But how does it look like with when shooting with a 135mm lens (35mm equivalent is 170mm) and full remote focus control?

Our CineLifter and Cinestar are custom built to fly the worlds best cinema cameras, including the RED Epic Dragon, Alexa Mini and Sony F55, capturing perfectly smooth and stable footage right out of the camera.
