OUR EQUIPMENT:

Here at Elevated Studios we utilize quality professional equipment including a Cannon Digital SLR camera, a steady cam that records in 1080p, A DJI Mavic PRO Drone which shoots in 4K, and the "Squirt" - our specialized cinematography drone which offers a one-of-a-kind perspective, and is safe to fly indoors.  The Squirt is smaller than a laptop, and features silicone-like guards around the rotors to protect against any damage to walls or other materials in the home.  It is capable of recording in 4K with Hypersmooth technologies as seen on the GoPro 7 that is used for filming.  This drone is custom built and professionally piloted.  It is an unique addition to our company.  Our professional pilot has certifications with the FAA Part 107 and the FCC.  He has been piloting since 2014.
