TidBITS contributor Julio Ojeda-Zapata of the St. Paul Pioneer Press pulled an undesirable weekend reporting shift recently, but was able to turn it into a grand geek adventure by filming the explosive demolition of the 280-foot chimney stack on a decommissioned power plant. He relied on his iPhone 5c, a Nokia Lumia 1020, a Sony handheld camcorder, and the help of a number of friends, one of whom was flying camera-equipped drones above the site. Julio pulled it all together with Final Cut Pro X and shared the full story — along with the video — on TwinCities.com.follow link
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
Tech Geeks Film Explosive Chimney Stack Demolition
Cool. Here's the direct link to the news article with video and stills. http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_25355143/st-paul-smokestack-explodes-minimal-smoke?IADID=Search-www.twincities.com-www.twincities.com
I'm wondering why only two viewpoints were shown on the story...with no signs of the drones?
In the video, there are a lot of aerial shots from the drones.
Sorry, Adam, I used John B's link above instead of going back to your original post which indeed, has a ton of drone shots. My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.
