Some enterprising "students" attached a Bolex 16mm film camera to a drone for some spectacular shots over a US desert. The making of video contains beautiful scanned excerpts of the Bolex aerial cinematography. Shot on Kodak Vision 3 50D color negative. They used the following equipment, i.e.

Gimbal used: Movi M5
Drone used: Freefly Alta 8 (weight capacity of 15 lbs)
Camera used: Bolex H16

Cool! tho I will say, had they used an ebm it would have been a lot easier! wind up cameras don't work so well in the air! lol
