Greetings Visitors – Fall / Autumn 2023

As we head in the the final season of 2023 we share concerns with most of the world about the state of things, so much trouble and hatred. It would be so much better if people just looked after their own families and stopped stressing about what the other guy is doing. As for the wars, greed continues to rear its ugly head, will we ever get past that? Thanks for visiting, and please have a look at our YouTube channel, some examples below. Celebrate the beauty of the world, pity the haters and their victims, don’t turn away, support your local charities.

A recent Mavic 3 Classic flight, the Ottawa river valley never ceases to captivate.

New Drone Hardware

So we finally made the jump to some newer tech… The Mavic 3 Classic will provide us with a clearer view from the sky and allow for better overall imaging. Watch the YouTube channel for new output

Our new aerial camera

Serious smoke from various fires in the area. What a year it has been so far for forest fires.

Our Lupins are Rocking. That Bee is saving the planet too… Video made with GoPro Hero 10

Making the most of a dull day’s footage… and some darkish music created just for it.

Dear Visitors.

March 13th, 2014 was the date of the passing of a great friend of ours, Mr. Don Sklepowich a very unique and special guy who amazed, inspired, mentored, and amused us. An exceptional audio engineer and producer, cool drummer, and all round friend to many many people. He is greatly missed still, 9 years later. See the Memorial page and the video below for some thoughts and moments. Feel free to use our Contact form if you wish to get in touch for more details not published here. RIP Don!

Don – 2023

Exploring AI Imaging

We used DiffusionBee for Mac Silicon to create these images. See https://diffusionbee.com/

Winter’s here….

Winter is bearing down on our area… it keeps showing up then leaving then coming back!

The Old Farmhouse

Had to capture this old building, a couple more years and it will probably collapse.

Best watched on YouTube, 4k resolution.

More GoPro Video…. see the YouTube channel for even more.

Had to stop and grab this footage recently, the light was just right and the stabilization did not suffer… filmed at 4k60.

A recent find…

We discovered a video compiled a while back based on our fallen comrade Don’s old studio setup. We are sharing here in his honour. We collaborated on this music, which was created in Garage Band of all things…. lol. All that pro gear was not setup when we recorded it…

Drone News

Summer has dwindled, and fall weather permitting we will be making more flights before the snow flies, still smarting from the whole pandemic thing – Covid really spoiled the fun…. Here’s another recent flight, using the anamorphic lens accessory from Freewell. 4k60fps Best click on the “Watch on Youtube” button for the full effect.

Other Video News

We’ve recently acquired a GoPro Hero 10 to add terrestrial video imagery to our drone stories, and will be sharing those on YouTube as we go along. Here’s two examples, one TimeWarp and one slowmo… best watched on YT full screen.

This was a 35 minute drive compressed into 2 minutes. No speeding tickets were issued though!

The SlowMo video was tripod mounted, showing off the depth to which the Hero 10 can slow things down. The Hero 11 is now out, but we are not jumping on that anytime soon.

Thanks for visiting. More to follow.
