Tiny cameras capture the bird’s eye view like never before [video]


Soaring like an eagle may still be out of reach for most humans, but thanks to tiny HD camera technology, filmmaker John Downer is bringing us a real bird’s eye view to inspire the imagination.

As he explained to Popular Photography:

What we had to do was strip down the highest-quality, but smallest HD camera available. We had to engineer it so it was basically a circuit board, a chip, a lens, and batteries. We had to make sure it was as light as possible, but we also needed it to record slow-motion […] So, we had to make the cameras and the mounts so the bird could fly naturally and feel comfortable.
