To demonstrate their stabilized octocopter (double the quadrotor technology) camera drone, Berlin-based OMSTUDIOS, has produced this nearly seamless (there are only two cuts within the edit) ninja fight sequence.

The OMCOPTER literally gives wings to the RED Epic. You know, the $58,000 state-of-the-art digital camera? Breathtaking stuff; behold the next level of film-making. The OMCOPTER can virtually go anywhere. It breaks open a whole new world of cinematic possibilities while drastically lowering the costs of production. Game change, indeed.


With a resolution of 5K, a dynamic range of up to 18 stops and a high-tech processor enabling up to 300 frames per second, the RED Epic is without a doubt the world’s most advanced camera.

The all-new OMCOPTER raises the RED Epic to lofty heights without the limitations of a crane or the prohibitive costs and space requirements of an actual helicopter. As an intuitively remote-controlled drone, the OMCOPTER makes the capture of spectacular shots at the highest quality possible, and at a fraction of the previous costs.

The OMCOPTER is ready for take-off in just 15 minutes and can reach heights of up to 150 meters. The reach of the drone is dependent on the range of sight of the operator, usually up to 100 meters. The OMCOPTER is also usable in close quarters and its extreme agility makes it very adaptable.
