This was shot in 4k but downscaled to 1080p.  I don't think I'm ready for 4k.  It takes too long to edit.

Nice footage, land on one of those big 'H's on the deck by mistake and you might not see your Mavic for a while

Nicely done, enjoyed the time-lapse segment -- was that a kayak boater near the tail-end of the time-lapse? The night shots were nice, too. I'm not sure I could get away with that kind of flying in the states. I get yelled at for shooting industrial sites from public roads.

You say it takes too long to edit. What are you using? I have a Mac and it's very slow. I want to know what's the easiest fastest system for editing video. I may upgrade my Mac or just get different editing software.

Thanks all.  Yes, that was a kayaker.  He seemed to be timing it well so that he would be able to get behind the tanker when it took off and catch some surf.

I use a 2012 iMac and recently upgraded to an SSD drive.  Makes a big difference.  People will tell you to just use proxy files when using Final Cut Pro x as it's much faster.  It is but then you are editing on a very low quality view.  I might upgrade to a newer 5k iMac later in the year but 1080p will do for now.

Must have been a nightmare to get CASA approval on this one!

How did you get them to agree to the risk assessment to fly over a loading oil tanker with a non ATEX/IECEX certified UAV for a Combustible/Explosive risk area?

Oh no wait a minute.....let me guess......you just thought it would be cool !!!!
