Boston, MA, February 21, 2017 – Rule Boston Camera, New England’s premiere source for digital cinema equipment rentals, sales and service, has added professional drone services to its roster of capabilities.

Broadening its commitment to providing the most current technology and world-class customer service, this new endeavor offers customers an opportunity to capture cinematic aerial images by renting one of two professional drone systems, along with the expertise of a skilled drone pilot.

The two available drone packages are designed to fit varied needs and budgets. They are:

  • The Aerigon MK II Professional Drone from Intuitive Aerial is an industry-leading heavy-lift drone and gimbal built to fly full camera and lens packages up to 20 lbs. Rated for much greater lift capacity than your average drone, the Aerigon can be paired with one of many digital cinema cameras in the company’s rental inventory including the RED DRAGON or WEAPON, ARRI ALEXA Mini, Panasonic VariCam LT, Canon C300 MK II, C100 MK II, 5D Mark IV, or 1D C, and the Sony F55 or FS7 II.
  • The Inspire 1 Raw from DJI, is a smaller, extremely capable and affordable aerial filmmaking platform with a unique combination of imaging and flying capabilities. The drone’s integrated X5R camera and gimbal system includes a 15mm lens and a Micro Four Thirds CMOS sensor that can record 4K RAW and capture 16MP stills onto micro SDHC/SDXC cards.

“With the addition of our Professional Drone Services, we’re able to combine our vast inventory of rental cameras and highly-qualified staff of technicians with Will Barnes, an experienced, knowledgeable, and licensed drone pilot, ensuring the aerial platform has as many creative opportunities as possible,” says John Rule, President of Rule Boston Camera.
