Drone Time Lapse and Hyper Lapse Photography

Whilst time lapse photography is a relatively well known thing, hyper lapse might be a little less familiar.  Essentially time lapse photography is taken from a single static point whereas hyper lapse involves movement to create a dynamic result. Both time lapse and hyper lapse sequences are possibly and indeed impressive, when created using UAV.  In fact, Drone Media Imaging can capture images using a mix of drone [...]

Drones Deliveries Planned for South East Hospitals

Drone deliveries are something of a contentious issue with the UK public.  A recent survey by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers entitled 'Public Perceptions: Drones', only 23% of those surveyed support drone deliveries, citing fears over package thefts, accidents in the sky, and invasion of privacy as the main reasons for their reticence. Against this somewhat bleak backdrop, it is clear that plans being formed by Solent Transport [...]
