Justin Bieber’s latest music video, “Hold On,” appears to use an FPV drone to get some of the fast-paced follow and high-speed aerial shots– creating shots that would not have been possible using any other equipment.
The FPV drone is the choice for many of the chase scenes in the video, as it can maneuver in a similar way to the motorbike and keep up with it to make the viewer feel even more immersed in the video.
