“Action sports industry” filmmakers Teton Gravity Research shot this aerial view of San Francisco with what they describe as an “4K/Ultra-HD, RED Epic-equipped gyrostabilized camera platform: The GSS C520.”

According to Teton, this is the first footage shot with this rig, which “is a portable 5-axis system that houses a range of leading digital cinema cameras, like the Epic and Sony F55, while also capable of integrating future advancements in camera technology.”

Stick around to the end, where they switch to a nighttime shoot of the city. It’s pretty neat.
