Nice.  Would like some more details of the heli.

The film looks amazing though.

Super project!

They certainly must trust the heli to hang new, unreleased cameras over a fish farm.

Where did I hear about Hasselblad before...?? Oh wait! They were used on the Apollo missions! From the Wiki:

In 1962, NASA began to use Hasselblad cameras on space flights, and to request design modifications. The first motor-driven camera, the 500 EL, appeared in 1965 as a result of NASA requests. While Hasselblad had enjoyed a slowly but steadily growing reputation among professional photographers through the 1950s, the publicity created by NASA's use of Hasselblad products dramatically increased name recognition for the brand.

Many times cameras are rented or leased for projects. But the Red camera mentioned was probably there for a proving test. What a job!

That's insane. An Hasselblad H with gimbal is so heavy, it must be an 800 class heli, probably a special model that is made for it.
