I was going to recommend Kino which is the one I used when I needed to do that, but according to their web page the project is no longer mantained, so you can either use it the way it is or try the other software that is recommended on their web page: Shotcut, Kdenlive, Flowblade, OpenShot, PiTiVi, LiVES, and LightWorks.

The only function which does this is called Smile Shutter. Please have a look at the official manual at page 110. You can disable it under: Menu > Camera/Mic > Face > Smile Shutter

For a different sort of flying device to lift a camera, consider a kite. A suitable kite is probably much cheaper than a drone. Plus it doesn't require batteries, so can stay up in the air much longer. A range of cameras can be lifted with a kite. With a big enough kite, it is possible to lift a DSLR.

Find some people IRL who share your interest and enthusiasm for filmmaking. They don't have to be professionals, and you don't have to pay for a fancy film school, but opening a discussion with real people about technique is the best way to start learning. Watch movies with these people, press the pause button when something grabs your attention, and talk ...

It depends on what you mean by splashproof. Rain covers are the absolute cheapest form of protection (as little as $5 or as much as $70+), though they generally leave the front element exposed and provide only minimal protection since they are not sealed. They also are somewhat clunky to use as you generally have to reach under them or through sleeves in ...

Remember its all about the story. How to tell the story. And the tools you use to tell it. Editing, lighting, special effects and sound (are the tools used to tell your story.) Remember: story, story, story. Starting out: A good entry level camera to start filming with by Tom Antos. ...
