Drone Team

Our Flight teams may vary in size, depending on the required task. 

Smaller tasks may only require the drone operator and possibly some assistance from within your company for our duration on site.

Larger tasks may require many staff members, comprising of the remote pilot participating in the safe control of the aircraft, an independent camera operator controlling the Gimbal for the best possible footage, a dedicated spotter, and any supporting personnel such as ground crew to prevent unauthorised access to the work area. Because of the locations and the specialised nature of the work, all our work teams are self-supportive when it comes to emergencies and all our pilots are qualified in 1st aid. 

Drone Camera

Hasselblad Cameras, Made in Sweden, are renowned for their iconic ergonomic design, uncompromising image quality, capturing some of the world’s most iconic images – including the first moon landing.

Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad, our DJI Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera. The L1D-20c possesses Hasselblad’s unique HNCS technology (Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution), enabling us to capture gorgeous 20-megapixel aerial shots in stunning colour detail. The system records over 1 billion colours and retains more in-depth details in both highlights and shadows.

The brand new 1-inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than previously available. The large sensor also means better performance in low-light environments with a more extensive ISO range, max ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800.

The f/2.8-f/11 adjustable aperture delivers outstanding image quality both in high and low-light environments. Height Tasks ltd are authorised to fly at night, giving our clients flexibility in when tasks are conducted. Low light imagery can be recorded with HyperLight, a low-light setting designed to enhance your images while reducing noise (grain) significantly.

With 4K 10-bit HDR (high dynamic range) support, our Mavic 2 Pro can be plugged into a 4K TV with HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and will immediately play back footage with the right colour tones. The brighter highlights and increased contrast are what make HDR video so appealing to our cleints.

Our Mavic 2 Pro supports a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile that yields higher dynamic range for more flexibility in the grading room.

Mavic 2 cameras employ DJI's latest 3-axis gimbal technology, 6 ensuring smooth, stable footage in just about any situation.

Our Mavic 2 Pro also supports enhanced HDR photos, an improved technique that blends a sequence of photos offering increased image clarity while avoiding unwanted artificial effects.
