Here at Kaluta, we're not happy with being second best. We push not just to film videos, but to work at a cinematography level. With outputs up to 4K RAW and 8K RAW in time-lapse, we can deliver exceptional quality.

Cinematic outcomes from above
You could settle for a drone pilot that offers simple video in MOV or MP4 formats.
They're not bad, but they're not RAW either. RAW in Adobe DNG format retains all of the data captured by the X5R camera and saves every frame as an individual file! A good 4K MOV file will have a data rate up to 100MB/sec, however the X5R boasts a data rate of up to 2.4GB/sec! Not only is it very high quality, but it allows incredible flexibility in editing. We shoot in a flat profile on camera to allow for the greatest detail to be retained in post production to ensure you get the best range of detail from highlights to shadows and plenty of room for colour grading.
Obviously, if you just want a high quality flat or pre-graded MOV or MP4 file straight from the drone, we are more than happy to provide you with that at a lower cost than RAW.
Wherever possible, all footage is taken using the principles of cinematography. Our standard complies with 24 FPS including a smooth motion blur at 1/50 shutter speed, however we will record in 25 or 30 FPS at your request.
With dual controls we can have a pilot and camera operator for more technical shots on request.
Deliverables may either be files straight from the drone and/or part of larger projects we are producing.

many years experience behind the lens
As we at Kaluta are skilled photographers, we can offer you a variety of solutions to document your event or expedition. Whether in the city or in the wilderness, we have you covered! We only use full frame DLSR and mirrorless cameras and shoot exclusively in RAW with professional grade lenses so you can be sure that the images you will end up with are of the highest quality. Contact us now to find out how we can help you.
Scientific discovery of new species often requires live images of specimens. Kaluta can recreate gorgeous looking micro habitats that mimic the natural surroundings, pitch black or pure white backgrounds – whatever you need. We can also photograph terrestrial specimens in-situ. These professional photographs are excellent for use in museum displays, books and interpretive signs. How can we help you? Contact us now to find out!
Documenting your journey into the wild
Why settle for just videos of your expedition or scientific survey when you can have a cinematic experience? Kaluta has the required cameras, stabilisers, tripods and microphones to make that a reality. With abundant experience filming in remote locations and clients such as the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and Bush Blitz as well as private businesses we can deliver that cinematic edge to your remote (or not-so remote) multimedia production, so contact us now to find out how.

We would be happy to hear from you, see our contact page and ask us how we can help!

Creating content for the public
Before Kaluta was set up we delivered multimedia solutions to the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT. From a super high resolution multi layered panorama, short films to be put on loop and projected and outreach films; visually friendly displays to compliment exhibitions are something we have expertise in.
Watching time fly
Speeding up time to see things far slower than the human eye (or patience) will allow is absolutely an art form. Clouds boiling, tides washing back and forth, sunsets, moving shadows, construction and opening flowers are all amazing when sped up in a short film. Not only that, we can provide it in resolutions up to a massive 8K in some circumstances. How can Kaluta help you? Contact us to find out.
