Discussion

1) Five years ago image quality and video footage like this would have required Hollywood-style kit and a helicopter, costing around $20,000 per day. How has technology in this area moved to be so good and so cheap in such a short amount of time?

2) What sorts of business problems could you solve with a $1,500 set up like this?
