Today’s video

Today’s video is from Nicole Glass who took her DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian and captured these awesome aerial shots from San Francisco. All the footage is in 4K with makes it even better to watch on a large screen. Here’s what she had to say about the short video:

“During a short work trip I took to beautiful San Francisco, California, I flew my DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian drone at sunrise and sunset (pretty much the times I was not working). The aerial views I captured were stunning. The footage was filmed in November 2017 after only owning my drone for about 2 weeks. I just decided to revisit and reedit this footage again to produce a better compilation. San Francisco is a truly magical city – especially during golden hour!”
