This KARE image spot was filmed with a 5D Mark II, and Panasonic 170 (for the green screen and time lapse shots). The snow machines were wonderful and especially helpful considering our wimpy winter this year. I used the Dana Dolly for most of the shots, which was easy to set up and move.
The aerials were shot from a Jet Ranger (from Scott's Helicopters in New Ulm). We had the door removed, and I was harnessed in, so I could sit on edge of seat, with my feet out the door. It gave us a wide view of the city, but it was a bit cold.
