Amazing Video of Tamarac Using a Drone Camera

Sunflower Heathgate from Tom Huben on Vimeo.

By: Sharon Aron Baron

Have you seen a sudden proliferation of videos taken from above, but too low to have been shot from a plane?  Maybe you’ve seen something in the sky with strange lights and you mistook it for a UFO?

Chances are you are looking at something shot from a drone.  Drones are now being used in real estate, motion pictures and TV shows by photographers or just enthusiasts that want a different perspective of their surroundings.

Former Tamarac resident Tom Huben took this video of his old neighborhood called Sunflower in Tamarac, Florida.  He shot it just a couple weeks ago and the camera allows bird’s eye views of both Sunflower and the Heathgate area as well

Drones can legally operate at heights up to 400 feet and they’re not cheap.  They range in price from $500 up to $30,000.

Have a birds-eye of your neighborhood or home?  Share it with us.   If you’d like one but don’t own a drone, give Tom Huben a call.

  • Too High in the Sky

    Duh, Google earth does the same thing via satellite. Also, a photograph too low to be taken by an aircraft? Hmmm. How do you think news helicopters get their pics? Zoom technology can also be used by any of a thousand small planes that fly over daily. That said, let’s keep our eyes on law enforcement using these things to invade our privacy. Maybe Sharon would like to ask her buddy Scott Israel about that.

    • Mitch Pellecchia, using another fake name I see. it’s a good thing that Margate Police arrested you for that DUI instead of BSO, huh? Either way, didn’t look like you received any special treatment.
