LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SHOTOVER, the maker of high performance stabilization platforms for the motion picture and broadcast industries, announced today the sale of two SHOTOVER F1 aerial camera systems to aerial production and photography company NYonAir.

SHOTOVER continues to gain rapid adoption of the F1 system, which offers unprecedented aerial capabilities in a package light enough to be transported by a single person as checked baggage.

These include the new Angenieux 25-250 and the IBE adapter and Fujinon 42x9.7 lens. SHOTOVER continues to add support for new cameras and lenses as they become available, enabling F1 owners to easily upgrade their systems to take advantage of the latest technologies.
"We had the opportunity to put the F1 through its paces during a SHOTOVER demo on the East Coast and were blown away by its intuitive control, ease of use and image quality," said NYonAir CEO Patrick Day. "The F1 is also the only system out there with a look-down capability, which provides great views of buildings and properties for our real estate clients."
Designed for high-performance aerial cinematography, the SHOTOVER F1 meets the needs of demanding shooters, delivering motion picture quality images in a flexible, fast-rigging package. The F1's modular design makes it fully upgradeable, allowing operators to utilize new professional cameras, lenses and accessories as they come to market.
