Hyperlapses


Hyperlapse adjective \ˈhī-pər, laps\ : a timelapse where the camera is moving

A great tool for showing the progression of time. Imagine the sun setting or traffic going by.


Our aerial hyperlapses are created by flying 2 mph while taking a still photo every 2 seconds. These photos are then grouped together and stabilized. Thirty pictures equals one second of footage. This means 10 minutes of flying time gets you a 10 second clip.

Rates for hyperlapses start at $300. Typically this includes 2-3 takes of the shot and an edited finished product. Hyperlapses are greatly affected by wind speed and direction so we will coordinate with you the best time, place and path of the drone.


A few notes on aerial hyperlapses:

  • Wide, expansive shots look best. They come out smooth and play back at a good speed.
  • Shots with objects in the foreground have a higher chance of being shaky and go by way too fast.
  • Lots of movement in the frame (from a distance) is best: traffic, boats, clouds. One example is a large construction site with lots of activity. 


We capture JPG photos in a 20 megapixel, 3:2 aspect ratio at a resolution of 5472 x 3648. The finished product will be cropped and sized to your specifications. We recommend one of the following:

  • HD 1920 x 1080, 16:9
  • UHD 3840 x 2160, 16:9

If you require RAW photos, please note that they can only be taken every 5 seconds, leading to a shorter and possibly less stable hyperlapse.
