The first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse

True.

This was done from a helicopter; can drones be sent up there? If drones can fly that high, the possibilities for photography would be endless.

Not to mention the possibilities for the search bit of search-and-rescue.

Stunning.

On my only trip to Nepal over a decade ago, I went on a special 45 minute long scenic flight from Kathmandu that took you right over Mt. Everest. Those images will always remain with me.

I was impressed with this programme about a competition to use drones in search and rescue:

"Teams from around the world compete using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to find and get a bottle of water to within 100 metres of stranded Joe (who is a scarecrow posing as a dehydrated human)."

Easier in the Outback than the Himalayas, I know...

(I have to go to the optician. I read that as a stranded Jew.)

(I actually do have to go to the optician: my mid-range computer/etc glasses frame broke yesterday)

How many different glasses do you have covering the different distances!?!? Short, mid-range, semi-long range, long distance, really really really far?

Two.

Mid-range, for computer monitor, shop shelves, etc, and slightly more powerful reading glasses.

Oh, sorry... three!

I also have what I call my engineering glasses that allow me to do stuff like seeing the x in a tiny screwhead.

I don't need glasses for far sight. I've given up trying to see past tomorrow anyway
