Choice of Camera
John Wells Wrote:Dinosaur - Are you on our list of kite aerial photographers?
We are trying to compile an up-to-date list.

Afraid I just tell the guy what wants photographing (in the unlikely event he can get the kite up and the camera ever swings past roughly the right orientation), and then don the heavy-duty leather gloves to help haul the thing back in when the camera's run out of memory (no fingers lost yet). Like the heath-robinson, better than our current suitably-sized-small-pebble-and-masking-tape approach :face-approve:

Until I can convince them to get a more high-tech kite (one string doesn't allow for much stability or control), think 10 sec delay between shots would be far too long since the shots are pretty random anyway and it takes an age to shoot off 1400 shots even at 2 secs - afraid in the commercial world there's a site needs digging!

The ?1500 spent on the 60' telescopic mast with remote steering was a good investment though, impresses the clients if nothing else :face-approve::face-approve:Cool
