That's a good idea. But my old and aching back would not like to hold it low enough. So I thought of flying it. Plus, my hands would be full with the drone and the remote controller. Thank you ...Why not just hand carry the drone (no props on), if you're just doing jpegs at that height? You'll still be able to get the GPS data also. I've hand carried when doing some super close up shots for video and still have the gimbal minimize any motion or bounce while panning or circling and object. Worked great like having a hand held gimbal for a DSLR.
Thanks for the reply.The Inspire series (1 and 2) like to toilet bowl, move around a bit while hovering. The gimbal itself is not very strong. Sooooo.... if your reflexes are not 18 years old (i'm 63) I would not hover less than 1 Foot agl. On a CALM say
I wanted GPS info and foto plus simply use my Inspire. Also face the stone head on to minimize distortion. Using a camera means bending over and is not for me.
The main issue you will have (IMHO) is crashing into a headstone or other objects). I would think a GoPro on a selfie stick would work.I wanted GPS info and foto plus simply use my Inspire. Also face the stone head on to minimize distortion. Using a camera means bending over and is not for me.
So far, will have to try this out and see what issues I may have,
Tons. As suggested, I would almost just hand carry for that kind of mission.I have a project in mind that would place my v2 Pro x5 at almost ground level. Create Jpgs and Gps data of cemetary tombstones. Are there any known ground effects from being that low above grass?
Did you mean Osmo?get or rent an Oslo for that X5
You are right and you are right, I hit send before i noticed the spell checker changed it to Oslo LOL.Did you mean Osmo?
If so, there is no information on the website nor the User Manual for "Does it provide GPS coordinates?" The still picture capability is nice as is the hand wand.
The end result of this, is to map a cemetary grave by grave. Then from the metadata extract the Gps location which will be in front of or above the stone. Then, link that to the websie for that cemetary. Open the overhead image. Click on a plot. There is the picture. And I am trying to use what I have to see if this could work.
WellIf you just need geotagged photos, could you not do this with your phone? This seems like an awful lot of hassle just to use the X5, which is pretty comparable to my Pixel 4a at the end of the day (aside from interchangeable lenses of course)
Picture this ...There are a lot of inexpensive cell phone gimbals ($100 or less) that should do the trick. I personally have an old Zhiyun rig that would stabilize, pan/tilt the phone, so no bending over. My OSMO with the stick and extension cable with the Z-Axis would do that too but even used is a more costly option than just using your cell phone with a hand held gimbal.
