I already had a post written for This Week In Real Estate Video, but when Anders Carlson sent me a link to this property video (here is the YouTube version) promoting the auction of Michael Jordan’s 56,000 square foot home just north of Chicago, IL I wanted to point it out and get reader’s opinion on it.
The first thing that caught my attention was the fact there were so many places in the video that it appeared it was being shot with a near fisheye lens. After watching it more carefully it appears that this video is shot in two ways. The shots with people in them appear to be shot with a conventional DSLR on a Steadicam of some type while all the ones with the ultra wide near fisheye lens are done with a UAV. Clearly all the high outside shots are done with a UAV, but also many of the interior shots where the camera moves smoothly over furniture and high into the corners of the basketball court are also being shot with a UAV equipped with a Hero 3 like camera.
What do you think? Am I hallucinating or is a large part of this video shot with a UAV?
