Using an HD camera strapped to a remote-controlled helicopter, (a new cinematography technique that's been popping up everywhere from protests in Poland to local real estate listings) visiting videographer Robert Mcintosh filmed this dizzying aerial tour that takes us under, over and around San Francisco landmarks. We're especially fond of the bit (at the 4:10 mark) when the chopper buzzes a cable car before floating down Lombard Street. Let's see you do that with your news chopper, KTVU Channel 2.

Come for the requisite Golden Gate Bridge flyby, stay for the part where the helicopter chases a bison through the park!

Thanks for the tip, Sally.
