First Look: DJI S1000 Octocopter with EOS 5D MKIII

Video Review of the Latest Multirotor UAV for Serious Aerial Cinematic and Photographic Imagery

I recently had the opportunity to interview photographer Stephen Wheatcraft with his new DJI S1000 UAV and get a full run-down on the setup and operation of the craft and camera.

Stephen gives us a full video overview and demo of the DJI Spreading Wings S1000 Octocopter with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII and I was able to fly along with my DSLRPros Phantom and shoot some accompanying aerial shots in-flight.
