First off I would like to state this video was taken less than a hour ago. I would like help identifying what it could have been doing, it appeared
to be unmarked or the color of the marking was very similar to the rest of the color of the chopper. It flew around a one block radius very close to
my house and part of its path was directly over where I was standing.
It had a camera on the front underneath the cockpit and something (possibly another camera) on the right landing leg.
They more than likely saw me recording them, as they flew overhead at what appeared to be less than 150 ft.
I don't know much about helicopters so I was wondering if anyone here on ATS could identify the type of chopper and what it could have been doing.
I took three videos, sorry to waste a bit of time but can somebody please tell me how to upload a video directly from my computer to here?
Mods, please move if this is the wrong area, videos are to come.

Last summer I had one of the bargain basement choppers (tall mast under the rotor) doing laps around my backyard while I was working in the garden. I
never leave the house without my camera, so I quickly started snapping photos of the offending chopper. I think it was some nosy news chopper who
mistook my tomatoes for marijuana, and were looking to rat me out. One guy was leaning out the window with either a camera or binoculars. I let them
have both one finger salutes for invading my peace and quiet.
