I hope this is the right forum to post this on? BBC?s ?Planet Earth? has these stunning ? super steady birds-eye shots. I recall an episode with a polar bear swimming miles out into the ocean, or walking on a barren ice landscape. The framing starts on a full shot, and then zooms out to an ELS showing the vast empty landscape, until the bears are specs on the ice. From the closer shots, right through the zoom the shot is PERFECTLY stable. In other episodes as well? Animals do not seem bothered too much by whatever they use to fly the camera. How do they do it?

In terms of flying really close with flocks of birds flying in formation (using small planes like Ultralites) often they have to train the flock from birth to get used to the plane!

Anyway, Mike has great taste and deserves the Emmy he shared for that work. He did that great opening aerial in Shawshank Redemption as well.
