To avoid over-exposure, the camera is programmed to only photograph at night...



Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

I'm impressed with the technology to get that shot. Must've been an expensive drone.

Looks like GoPro didn't have enough product placement funds in their marketing budget to outbid Canon.
