Various Drone Footage of Guyana

Hi Everyone

I'm back from my trip and I'm starting to upload my pictures and videos.

Here is a link to all of the raw video I shot in Guyana.  There is close to 4 hours of drone video from a few areas of the country.  Albion, Leonora, Craig, Uitvlugt and Splashmins.  As they are uploaded, they will show up in the playlist.  This is unedited video, just all of the raw stuff.

Enjoy!

Django...none whatsoever.  Showed it to the "officer" at the airport.  All he wanted to know was that I was taking it back home when I left.

The good.  You can't beat Guyana hospitality.  Everyone was wonderful everywhere I went.  And they could all tell I was from "foreign".  At times I did worry because I'm always carrying expensive camera gear, but I wasn't afraid.  

Georgetown is much cleaner than it was when I last visited. It still isn't "CLEAN", but cleaner.  

Houses are being built like crazy.  Old ones torn down and new ones going up.  Might be expats, but no matter what, there is money flowing and things are changing.

The bad: Plastic bottles everywhere.  Trenches being clogged with bottles, piles on the streets, piles at the seawall...everywhere.  They need a system to collect and recycle somehow.  

Corruption is still rampant.  Nothing gets done without passing money.  Nothing changes in that sense.  

Parking meters in Georgetown.  Now they say its bad, I say its good.  Generate some revenue, just make sure it goes to something good.

There is still a lot to be fixed in that country, but I won't lie, I love going there.  You can't beat the weather, the food, the fruits.

Lets keep it on the positive side guys. I like what i see of Leonora. If i do go back i will want to walk the whole of Leonora, Stewartville

But the people should know that this did not occurs after 2015 when PNC took over as suggested by some of the posts.

Would love to see a drone video of the kaieteur and some of the rivers. 

I tried to get permission to fly at Kaieteur, but was not permitted.  I will try again the next time I go.  I've seen some drone footage on youtube of Kaieteur, but none are of high quality.

I do have footage in these videos of The Demerara River and Correntyne.

cocot, how difficult are one of these drones to operate?  I need to inspect some properties for roof issues, it seems like a good tool as an alternative to climbing a ladder. 

They are pretty difficult.  You need to understand how to fly it as well as know how to set-up and operate the camera.  Anyone can try to fly and operate the camera, but if you don't know what you're doing, the result won't be very good.  Also, in Canada, there is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done to fly commercially, that includes agricultural reasons and inspections.  Insurance is also an issue.

Leonora #4 I see cottage hospital,@4.45  looks like you get great distance coverage with the drone Tony



from 5.19 I think the overhead water tank is gone. Tony there is an empty lot beside the house where you stayed

Yeah, the water tank is long gone...The empty lot is owned by family members of the people who's house I was staying at.

that damn drone goes high up man, what are the features.specs

I fly a DJI Phantom 3 Pro. 4K Camera

That's why the videos are good quality,it's double 1920 x 1080.

They are actually 2.7K, which is technically double 1080p resolution.  4K is quadruple resolution.  I didn't shoot in 4K because most people can't even see it in that resolution, and the file sizes are huge.

2.7k, 1440p, Quad HD are all referring to the same or very similar video resolutions. At 2560 X 1440 or their about this resolution is higher than 1080p, but not quite 4k.

I will demystify video resolution,NTSC.

Standard

640 pixels x 480 lines

High Definition there are two.

1280 pixels x 720 lines and 1920 pixels x 1080 lines.

4k

3840 pixels x 2160 lines [8.3 mega pixels]

Looking at the highlighted one can observed the doubling of HD 1920 x 1080 [which is called 2k] 4k is derived.

Japan currently have 8k

Japan has been doing 8K for a few years now, and over the air.

Doesn't matter here anyways, we will never have the bandwidth to see native 4 or 8K...cable and telecom companies are too cheap.

Internet streaming yes,off air may be a long wait.

By the way I am in Electronics Servicing Business since 1976.
