Equipment and Tech

At SMS our goal is to create images and film to promote your event, location, project or business in stunning high definition and with extraordinary clarity, to inspire real emotion from the viewer, this requires passion, talent and the right equipment.

Technology within the film and photography arena is constantly developing, at SMS we pride ourselves on staying at the cutting edge of that development.

As aerial and ground filmmakers and photographers, we can produce production quality content from the air, ground and even underwater.

From the air, we gather film and stills using state of the art UAV’s (Drones), filming in Ultra High Def 4K. Our fleet of drones are manufactured by the worlds No 1 supplier (DJI), can be deployed rain or shine and are second to none in terms of safety, build quality, functionality and capability. Each unit has different capabilities, making them suitable for a range of tasks and enabling us to deploy the correct unit for any situation.

When working on the ground, we utilise Canon camera equipment. Canon themselves describe their equipment perfectly…
