Being someone who frequently films skiing videos using cameras like go pros, but has constant problems with the quality and placement of the camera, I found this video very interesting. This video shows the capabilities of a new camera called the lily. The lily can follow you wherever you go, their slogan being “just throw and go”. It gives you a follow cam from multiple angles resembling as someone else was following you with the camera.
When I watch this, it resembles the quality of a professional, as if it was shot by a crew of camera men, however it’s just a small camera not even being manned by anyone. I think that this could ultimately be the future of shooting videos such as movies and TV shows, cutting the budget down on film production by a large amount.
Do you think that these type of drone, follow cams could be the future of videos or do you believe that in order to get the real authenticity of a film you need a professional to do the camera work?
