Drone filming is a fast growing industry. Don't take chances on inexperienced companies. Let BATCAM professionals deliver the shot you are picturing in your head!

WHAT DO YOU RECORD ONTO?


Depending on the camera setup we are using we will either record directly within the camera or record on an external recorder. For instance, if we are shooting with our Panasonic GH4 camera we can achieve stunning 10bit 4k images externally. In terms of delivery, we would trim the footage onsite and produce a single file for you to take away with you.

WHERE CAN YOU FLY AND NOT FLY?


Our industry is evolving. Changes occur to the regulation of drone filming regularly on a country by country basis. The general rule is that if you aren't 'in control' of the subject you are filming then you cannot be closer than 50m of that person or structure. There are however many safety measures you can put in place to make the safety case acceptable. We take care of the risk assessment and aerial permissions and it is included in our final quote.

ARE YOU INSURED?


Yes! We are fully insured with a public liability of £10m.

Regulation

BATCAM has worked very hard alongside the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to be the trailblazer of the UAV industry when operating within congested areas. Our unique safety practises have granted us a special exemption from the usual 150m distance of people within congested areas. So much so, we operate within 30m of people in inner city locations such as central London and crowds as big as 90,000 at Wembley Stadium. If you have a event where you don’t think it is possible to have BATCAM, think again and get in touch.


  • CAA reduced safe distances to public
  • Specialists in operating within congested areas
  • Fully insured (£10million Public Liability)
  • Unique safety practises
  • Custom built Pro systems - not consumer devices!
