This bird's eye view video makes use of a Sony HDR-AZ1 Action Cam Mini in order to show off a perspective of France that you'd never otherwise get. The tiny camera was strapped to a white-tailed eagle, a species that has been extinct in France for more than 50 years. In addition to showing off the awesome features of the camera like the high-quality HD footage it is able to capture and SteadyShot technology, the stunt also helps to raise awareness for FREEDOM, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to reintroduce the species into the region. Since this camera doesn't impede the bird's ability to fly naturally, this is the perfect camera for FREEDOM to use for research.

From the eagle's perspective, we get to see the bird fly from the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, over the Seine river and down into the Trocadéro Gardens.
