Kiwi Aerial Shots

OUR DRONES, CAMERAS AND LENSES

EQUIPMENT, TECHNICS AND CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

At Kiwi we understand that you always have to keep investing in the best professional drones and cameras. This way we have been ahead of the market for years and the only Dutch drone company that flys Cinema cameras with prime lenses. And if even the professional gear is not good enough for our needs, we will build or tweak it ourselves, in our workshop in Amsterdam. Our technical knowledge has been proven key in realizing the best shots for all kinds of productions.

On this page, you can read all about the Kiwi drones, cameras and custom options to match your production and needs. This way we can always get the perfect shot: that’s why we are here, that’s our mission!

Our drones

More than 8 (back-up) drones for all kinds of productions

We have knowledge of a really wide range of drones. We also gained lot’s of technical knowledge by building our own drones before they were on the market. These days we still fly with our own X8 octocopter but also with a DJI Matrice 600. With these, we can fly an ARRI Alexa Mini or RED camera. At Kiwi Aerial Shots we only work with fully certified drones and we always bring an extra back up drone so we can ensure the needed aerial shots.

BACKUP DRONES

To ensure 100% certainty that we can deliver on every film set we always bring a comparable backup drone. This way we can always deliver the professional footage we promise to deliver.

DRONE-Camera's and Lenses

Cinema cameras, prime lenses and the DJI setup

To meet your desired production needs we offer the possibility to work with a wide range of cameras and lenses underneath our drones. Therefore we are the only Dutch drone company that flies the Arri Alexa Mini or RED cameras with prime lenses. Next to that we of course also offer the Inspire 2 drone with the regular used X5s or X7 camera. Let us know what your exact wishes are so we can bring the right lenses for the right shoot. Especially for the cinema cameras from RED or Arri it’s important to know what kind of shots we have to make as it is not always possible to fly the biggest setups in every condition or in high velocity. The speed of the drone can affect the stability of the bigger setups and therefore we sometimes recommend to pick a smaller prime lens.

Other Kiwi equipment

Helicopter shots, Steady cam and Car-2-Car shots

Next to the certified drones and cameras above Kiwi Aerial Shots also offers other services and product we would like to mention. Such as our helicopter cineflex services, our Steady-cam option and our self-developed LED lighting system that offers lots of unique possibilities as it is lightweight and relatively small.

Kiwi LED light

– In our Kiwi workshop we have developed an unique LED lighting system that we can deplay hand held or put underneath a drone. Read more about this 1800W LED system on our lighting page.

Cineflex Elite

– At kiwi we also offer the option to film from a helicopter. We can do this the handheld way or with a Gimball. Or with a GSS or Cineflex Elite system. More info you can find on our helicopter page.

Steady cam

– We use the Ronin MX Steady cam on our Matrice 600 drone or as a handheld option for our complete video production services. Read more about this service on our corporate video page.

Custom Rigs

– Our self-developed Car Rig gives us the opportunity to work with lenses up to 200mm and drive up to 90 kmph. Contact us to get more specific technical information about our Car rig.

 

Custom is King

Unique drones, rigs and special effects

It’s on a daily base that we are working on custom projects in our workshop in Amsterdam. Our technical background and years of experience on set gave us the knowledge to build some of the most groundbreaking drones and helicopter rigs. We build unique coffee drones for the minister of Defence campaign and one of the first 280VR camera rigs to film with three RED Monstro’s underneath a helicopter. With Kiwi, we can provide technical knowledge and hands-on craftsmanship in both pre-production as on set. Below you can check some of the custom projects that we have worked on lately.

VR HELI RIG > 3 RED MONSTRO'S

This is an ungoing project we will tell you more about as soon as it is finished.

COFFEE DRONE

It was for a online campaign for the minister of Defence that we had to build this custom coffee drone. It could fly and serve coffee while foaming the milk and grinding the beans.

360 VR HELIKOPTER FOOTAGE

For this 5 hours shoot we had to build a unique camera rig to film Amsterdam in 360VR from underneath a helicopter. The result of this video can be seen at the island Pampus, an attraction site near Amsterdam.

SPECIAL EFFECTS

For a global Mitsubishi commercial, we made the ignition of a starting engine. Next to that, we also made the drone shots for this commercial.

Check the commercial here!
CAR-2-CAR SHOTS

We can make stable shots with a RED or Alexa camera while driving 80kmph. This way we shot unique footage around Schiphol airport for an upcoming documentary.
