Vision based upgrade for Aerial filmmakers


Hey guys,

An update for you all from before (here). We got some awesome feedback from you guys last time about our work on vision-based tracking and intelligence for drones. Check out our demo reel and launch video here:



Based on all your comments we improved our algorithms and packaged them into a feature-rich product for aerial film-makers that we’re pretty excited to share with you all today.

It’s called the SHIFT and it’s a film-maker’s smart upgrade kit for drones that simplifies many of the complexities of filming with a flying camera. The SHIFT plugs into your autopilot (currently supporting DJI and 3DR) and partially takes over control of the drone and gimbal to let you auto-frame moving subjects and fly smooth, precise paths - totally sweat free.

Thanks to an overwhelming response from aerial filmmakers we’re now launching a pre-order campaign for the SHIFT on our website:  http://www.flytheshift.com

We’re working with film-makers on a whole lot more features to add new levels of creative freedom to aerial filming. Like us on facebook and we’ll keep you updated! If you guys have more questions, feel free to ask. And for all you aerial cinematographers around do read our FAQ or contact us directly :) We’d love to hear from you!


Your friends at Perceptiv Labs!
