How do they do it?

PanoTools NG mailing list
Hi All,

 

I have found a website (link below) with panoramic aerial views like 10…12m above streets, so it could not be taken from a chopper.

How do they raise the camera so high? RC models? Very long rods or masts?

 

Please let me know what you think :)

 

Example here:

Overhead panoramas can be done using a lone pole, and also by sticking the pole out of a window, etc.

Another option is to use a remote controlled drone. For examples, see

Drone: DJI  f550 hexacopter. Camera: GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition. Processing:  PtGUi Pro, Photoshop, KRPano.

The answer they use a pole to support the camera at a height well above eye level and use a remote control to fire it.

Poles and masts are very effective for these sorts of low level overhead views.  Some use extendable masts mounted to vehicles to capture views 40'-60' overhead (20 meters), and even higher.

Remotely piloted UAS (unmanned aerial systems), such as small quadcopters or other "drones" can be used quite effectively for this, as well.  Example:

Hmm. Hard to tell as the panoramas are a total jumbled and distorted mess when I look at them on my iPad. :-/
