Beautiful Video of New York Shot Via Phantom Drone

Despite the information floating around regarding the legality of drones, when you see some beautiful aerial footage taken with them, you can't help but gape in awe. In this video uploaded by Nicolas Doldinger you can watch a GoPro take to the skies. In their own words: "DJI Phantom + Zenmuse H3-SD Gimbal + Gopro Hero 3 = NYC LOVE."

I may love San Francisco, but I can't help but feel a swell in my heart for New York when I see it like this.

Wasn't shot on the Phantom camera. The "DJI Phantom" is the quadcopter. The camera was the GoPro Hero 3.

Some really beautiful shots... Did anyone else notice that almost no one looked up at the flying doohickey? Only in NY does a flying camera drone go unnoticed.

I have this vision of using one of these at an outdoor wedding to get a high pull-back aerial shot of the ceremony -- definitely something new. I was worried about how stable the footage would be but this looks great. I would assume there is some sort of anti-shake process added in post...any insight?

It's using a brushless gimbal, much like the Movi stabiliser. I don't think any anti-shake was added in post, as it could have been perfect if it was.
