Our review

Are you a big Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket fan or an English Premier League (EPL) football fan? If yes, you would have definitely been amazed by those once-in-a-while camera visuals taken from right above the players’ heads as if a drone is flying around the stadium. No, it’s not actually a drone…it’s Skycam! This ingenious camera is rigged to move around in a virtual 3-D space across the field-of-play and it brings the fans straight to the action.

 

Pros:

+ Speaks to the actual inventor of Skycam and the Skycam team

+ A look at how the system is rigged and operated

+ Subtitles available

 

Cons:

– Would have loved to see Skycam bloopers. What happens if a cricket ball hits the camera?
