Elevated Imaging Systems (EIS) was established in August 2014 for the purpose of providing cost-effective and efficient aerial imaging services at short notice to businesses and individuals. Using a selection of sub-25kg Unmanner Aircraft (UAs), we can operate in congested areas, close to and within Airport No Fly Zones and can respond quickly to clients' requirements.

Elevated Imaging Systems provides cinema quality video and aerial photography to meet a broad range of business and personal requirements. These include building and site surveys, wedding photography, advertising and promotion work, sporting events and many more. 


Using state-of-the-art Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS), operated by Qualified pilots, EIS is equipped to readily provide high quality aerial imaging services, both inside and outside of controlled airspace to altitudes of up to 400 feet above ground level and up to 500m away from the take-off location. 


Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Elevated Imaging Systems is licensed, insured and approved by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to provide aerial filming and photographic services with Operational Authorisation - Specific Category. Specialists in aerial media production, our pilots are RPQ-s qualified and adhere strictly to our CAA approved EIS Operations Manual's systems and procedures to ensure at all times the safety of the crew, public, buildings and equipment.

Our Technology


Until recently, professional quality aerial video was out of reach to all but large news and movie-making corporations that could afford to run or hire helicopters. 


More recently, unmanned aircraft, mostly heavy lift hexacopter and octocopters have been used to put RED, Backmagic and Canon video or still cameras into the air. These machines come in all shapes and sizes but almost all are complex, heavy, have limited endurance (flight time) and are still expensive to run. Coming in at weights in excess of 7kg, these systems require special permissions to operate in congested or built-up areas.


Our lightweight (0.249 to 9kg) aerial platforms feature incredibly stable 3-axis gimbals and sharp, powerful DJI-designed cameras, as well as real-time video downlinks that enable our operators and clients to view live data as flights are underway.  These and other advanced on-board technologies, coupled with the ability to fly for up to 45 minutes on a single charge. enable us to create the perfect stills and video for a wide range of commercial and business applications.


DJI Matrice M300RTK Survey Drone 


One of our most capable drones, the unit's feature list is extensive. Please review DJI's own presentation for comprehensive details of its capabilities. We have both the H20T and P1 payloads, which cater for a wide range of inspection, survey and thermographic applications. We also hold sufficient batteries plus generator, enabling continuous uninterrupted use.

Widely used nowadays by Netflix, among others, The DJI Inspire 2 has been designed to create the perfect integrated professional flying platform for aerial photography.  This single or dual operator system is matched with our X4s, X5s and X7 cameras to capture up to 6K Raw video and 24 megapixel still images.

The combination of high performance brushless motors, highly efficient carbon fibre propellers, retractable landing gear and up to 20 minutes flight time per charge, enables the DJI Inspire 2 to meet the demanding standards required by cinematographers, making it both cost effective and environmentally friendly.



This exciting new camera for the DJI Inspire 2 features a 24 megapixel sensor, interchangeable lens capability, remote focus and aperture adjustment, 16 Megapixel stills and up to 6K ProRes or CinemaDNG Raw video recording.

Our 16, 24, 35 and 50mm DL lenses cater for a wide range of shot and framing options meeting most of the the requirements of TV and film Directors of Photography.

The Phantom 4 Pro, introduced earlier this year dramatically improves on the capabilities offered by its predecessors in the Phantom range. Featuring an improved more robust gimbal, compete with a 1" 4k 20megapixel camera, this drone has proven an excellent tool for the production of high quality orthomosaics and well as 100mbps 4K video and highly detailed still images.. The P4 Pro also features an extensive selection of ultrasonic and optical collision avoidance sensors, enabling use in more confined spaces than before. Also improved are battery life and aerodynamics enabling more time in the air and making this an ideal piece of equipment for use across a wide range of professional survey and TV filming applications.



The Phantom 4 RTK, is DJI's first compact RTK surveying drone. When used in conjunction with the D-RTK2 Base Station, this unit is capable of providing real-time, centimeter-level positioning data for improved absolute accuracy on image metadata. In addition to optimized flight safety and precise data collection, the Phantom 4 RTK stores satellite observation data to be used for Post Processed Kinematics (PPK), which can be conducted using a wide range of industry standard software, including DJI Terra, Pix4D, Drone Deploy, Agisoft Metashape, to name but a few.
