Live streaming from the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopter, at Stanford Campus in Palo Alto, California. This is a demo / test of a beta Vision app for iPhone that includes Ground Station support (autonomous, waypoint-based missions), with HDMI output going into a MacBook Pro via a USB dongle.

I have seen plenty of pictures of Keyhole Rock in Big Sur during the daytime, especially during these few weeks of winter when the sun sets in the keyhole, but I have seen very few good pictures of the iconic rock at night. 

To get this shot, I set my camera up on a tripod, engaged the self timer, and ran out to the rocks. I used a LED Lenser P7 flashlight to illuminate the structure, paying special attention to the keyhole itself. In the picture, you can see my silhouette near the keyhole.

Canon 5D Mark III, Sigma 20mm f/1.8 lens, 30 sec at f/2.8, ISO 3200

The latest +DJI Story is called "Live Broadcast From a Volcano," and is the behind-the-scenes video from our live volcano flight with Good Morning America​ and Ginger Zee​. It features Ferdinand​ / Skynamic​ and me flying Inspire 1 units over an Icelandic volcano in the winter, and what it took to pull the expedition off. We also had prototype Phantom 3 units with us, and took advantage of the trip to capture 4K footage for the Phantom 3 launch videos you might have seen.

Flying a Quadcopter with Kai on DigitalRev! Just comment to win a free one!

This was a really fun show with +Kai Man Wong and +DigitalRev in Hong Kong a few days ago. I was quite worried that Kai would fly the quad right into our crotches, but he had sweet nerves of steel! Haha this was so fun… Kai is a really great guy and his whole team there was just fantastic!

After this show, I went back over and flew the quad all over the other part of Hong Kong too and got a ton of photos… so fun :) I absolutely love using the camera on there, the incredible fine control you have to aim the camera exactly how you want… like XBox-Controller Photography!

Strangely, one of my favorite pictures of the Holuhraun eruption from the Good Morning America volcano trip was one I took out of the truck window while driving towards it. This was our first view of the Holuhraun volcano eruption on a field of snow during winter in Iceland.

Hello, everyone! We (DJI) has just returned (to the remote hut where we are staying) from making history with Good Morning America. We took meteorologist Ginger Zee on a tour of the inside of the erupting volcano at Holuhraun (in the Bardarbunga volcanic system in Iceland) using two Inspire 1 quadcopters, broadcasting live to the GMA audience in HD video via integrated Lightbridge connections. Both Inspire 1 units were completely stock, and pilots Eric Cheng (DJI's Director of Aerial Imaging—who is writing this post) and Ferdinand Wolf (Skynamic) were impressed by the Inspire 1's ability to weather harsh conditions. A total of 12 flights were made over the volcano in snow, -10C temperatures, and winds as high as 30 knots. Once the cold and wind were conquered, the Inspire 1 units had to endure the incredible heat coming from the eruption and large lava lake! Both Inspire 1 units had melted framesw... more »

Both Inspire 1 units had melted frames when returning from flights, and kept working perfectly.

What an adventure, and the perfect field test of the Inspire 1 in incredibly-harsh conditions!___

I am fascinated by what waves and surge against rocks look like from the aerial perspective. Scale is often deceptive, and footage shot in real time can look like it is slowed down. In this case, I slowed down the footage even more by shooting with a DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter at 1080/60p (60 frames per second), and “interpreting,” or “conforming” it to 30p (30 fps) for playback. So what you see here is playing at about half speed.

I configured my Edgertronic (http://edgertronic.com) high speed camera for field use, today, which means attaching portable power and a portable, battery-powered wireless router. Once the edgertronic works directly by using Wi-Fi, the wireless router can be removed.

The portable wireless router I'm using is the TP-LINK TL-MR3040. I configured the router to assign a specific ip address to the edgertronic's hardware MAC address because the edgertronic will ask for an IP address using DHCP.

Full parts list:

- Tripod mount for 7-8” tablets: http://amzn.to/Mi6h78
- L-shaped bracket holder: http://amzn.to/1nV83aq
- TP-LINK TL-MR3040 portable wireless router: http://amzn.to/1fiBkfR
- Custom power cable: 2.5mm/5.5mm DC plug soldered to a male XT60 connector
- 2200 mAH 3S LiPo battery with female XT60 connector (a standard, of sorts)

- 2200 mAH 3S LiPo battery with female XT60 connector (a standard, of sorts)
- Bluecell LiPo voltage checker: http://amzn.to/1l7LMsQ
- Ethernet cable

The 2200 mAH battery should power the camera for nearly 2 hours because the camera draws about 1 amp. Say 90 minutes, conservatively. Mike says that the edgertronic will shut off at 8 volts, but a 3S LiPo will become damaged before it reaches 8 volts, so the voltage checker is necessary.

I tried using the Really Right Stuff B26 plate with anti-rotation pin, but the pin didn't quite fit. RRS tells me that the Really Right Stuff B76 Multi-use fore-aft plate (http://bit.ly/1fH8px6) will work. Anti-rotation is accomplished by grabbing the lip of the edge of the camera.

I'm shooting a BMD Pocket Cinema Camera for the first time, underwater. The Nauticam housing for it is fantastic, and the Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens is pleasing with the slight crop factor. Best of all, I'm shooting CinemaDNG (raw) with a Magic Filter. The colors in today's manta shoot, which was in murky water, looks pretty good after light processing in Lightroom!

I don't think I have enough hard disks, though. CinemaDNG is around 3.6 GB per minute, and I'm shooting about 30 GBs worth of frames per dive.

On January 1, 2014, I went to Keyhole Rock in Big Sur to take a timelapse of the sun streaming through the famous keyhole on the beach. The low tide and hazy horizon made for a poor shaft of light through the hole, but wispy clouds made for an interesting timelapse, and by the time it was completely dark, the sky was crystal clear.

1389 frames, total. The first exposure was 1/160 sec at f/8, ISO 160 and the last, 20 sec at f/2.8, ISO 3200. Exposure changes were done manually and smoothed out using LRTimelapse.

On January 1, 2014, I went to Keyhole Rock in Big Sur to take a timelapse of the sun streaming through the famous keyhole on the beach. The low tide and hazy horizon made for a poor shaft of light through the hole, but wispy clouds made for an interesting timelapse, and by the time it was completely dark, the sky was crystal clear.

I have seen plenty of pictures of Keyhole Rock in Big Sur during the daytime, especially during these few weeks of winter when the sun sets in the keyhole, but I have seen very few good pictures of the iconic rock at night. 

To get this shot, I set my camera up on a tripod, engaged the self timer, and ran out to the rocks. I used a LED Lenser P7 flashlight to illuminate the structure, paying special attention to the keyhole itself. In the picture, you can see my silhouette near the keyhole.

Canon 5D Mark III, Sigma 20mm f/1.8 lens, 30 sec at f/2.8, ISO 3200

Google+ really needs a way to filter notifications. This happens nearly every day, and while I like getting +1s on my pictures, each time someone finds my work, it essentially makes notifications useless. cc +Brian Matiash

I went to Window of the World in Shenzhen a couple days ago, and it was totally bizarre / awesome. Imagine miniature reproductions of prominent world locations from the point of view of 80s China.

Going live! Imminent!

Drone Photography — The Variety Hour is Back!  Episode #87

We'll start the show with a special announcement and a sneak peek at something INSANELY COOL.

But then, we'll jump right into the discussion on Drone Photography.  Like me, I'm sure your drone-curious.  I've never done any, and it looks kind of confusing and scary, but it probably isn't.  That's why we're fully loaded with great guests to answer our dumb questions and figure all this stuff out.  

Who's joining? +Eric Cheng +Barry Blanchard  +Russell Preston Brown  +Colin Guinn +Frederick Van Johnson  +Thomas Hawk  +Peter Giordano  and the always great +Dave Veffer  !

P.S. if you have any suggestions on other people that are really into Drone Photography, let us know.  ___Going live! Imminent!

I spent the first week of November diving the Channel Islands. It was my first cold-water trip since a dive trip to Alaska about 5 years ago, and it was WONDERFUL. Love kelp, and the California coastal ecosystem. This was a Wetpixel expedition. If you're interested in diving with us, check out http://wetpixel.com/expeditions. We are going to Komodo in February, and have a few spots left.
