BIRDY shoots in RED :-)
The first flights of the RED Scarlet camera on a Birdy chopper were succesful, PL mounted with a 11-16 Duclos zoom lens.
No doubt the Epic big sister and our Zeiss T 2.1 lenses will be relevant too.
After 6 months' tests, Bidy completes the development of our multirotor drone, equipped with the same stabilized head of our helicopters,
flying now with a Canon 7D or Sony FS100.
This machine is interesting for shootings such as, hovering, interiors, slow mouvements, undergrowths etc... and this with the same professionnalism.

New website, new status for Birdy Fly.
The necessary changes given the evolution of the business of close range aerial filming.
Praise the originality of the concept after 20 years of experience and more than 10 years of regular activity now seems a little "offbeat".
The system is maturing, driven by the arrival of new players in the market, itself evolving. Our knowledge is as much on feature film, as fiction, advertising, corporate or documentary.
