Swooping shots from extreme sports photographers.

Teton Gravity Research, a production company based in in Wyoming, has produced more than 20 films about skiing, snowboarding, and other action sports since the mid-1990s. When it comes to getting swooping aerial shots of dramatic landscapes, they're the experts. In their latest reel they show off what they call "the world's most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system," a RED Epic mounted on a GSS C520. With 5 axes of motion, the camera can track landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Transamerica Pyramid as it skims by. At about 2:45 you can see the new Bay Lights LED installation created by artist Leo Villareal. Watch full screen and crank the volume for an extreme experience.
