    Hi all! This last week I have been on a African safari in Tanzania with some of my camera equipment and P2V + Dronexpert gimbal. I have shot some video and photos, but unfortunately it was not allowed to use copter inside the National Parks without paying some big money for the special permission needed for the out of the road photographing and videographing. Also I did not liked the idea of stepping out of the safari jeep in the middle of the savanna, just to become eaten by the wild lions hiding in high grass. ;)

    Anyway here are few photos which I took while we were driving between the Serengeti and Ngorongoro National Parks. I also took some video, but I'd better wait for some faster internet connections before I can try to upload them in Youtube.

    Here is also link to my travel blog with some additional photos, but unfortunately it's written only in my native language Finnish, so most of you will probably have big difficulties of understanding any of my text, but luckily photos are still internationally understandable ;) http://kaunistavaloa.blogspot.com

    Google translate didn't do too badly. Not so sure about going to the bathroom there, now! LOL!

    Thanks for your kind comments. Now when we are spending some relaxing beach holiday here in Zanzibar, I finally managed to upload also some video, which was partially shot with the P2V and Dronexpert gimbal. You can watch it here https://vimeo.com/90417634

    Nice work Jonzalez. Do you remember how much they would charge to allow aerial photography in their national parks?
