Timmers, I'm very interested in what you're doing here (mainly from a stills photography point of view). Its says on your website that you can use the chopper for stills and I'm guessing you point the camera directly down and guess when to remotely trigger the camera? Do you think it would be possible to rig up one of the newer DSLRs that has live view (namely the soon to be released Nikon D300) in a similar way to how you have rigged up the video cam, i.e. remote view and gimble control?

As for interesting stuff in Lymington, I may be able to arrange a couple of kitesurfers around hurst/keyhaven? It would be interesting to see how all your gear works.

Oh and are those pics in the yachting section taking at St. Catherines lighthouse on the IOW?!

Tim

Slimtim,
Not entirely sure how the stills operation works, as I do video. But I believe the digital camera feeds its viewfinder output into the video transmitter and the camera operator lines up the shot exactly as he wants, he has a remote shutter release to take the piccies. The camera guy can use most cameras including the Haselblad.

We had concidered kite surfers but the risk of entanglement is pretty high! We are going to have a go at filming the needles and the Lighthouse next week. If you fancy a day out.

The boat bits were filmed last week around Weymouth.

Very very good.

Just thinking now how I could get my work to buy one of those. And send me on a course to operate it of course.

Fantastic images in the high definition, particularly from the RIB. There is just no comparison with the youtube images.
