The only problem I see with that guy's rig, is you can't modify it with a clear poly tube so you can fill your PVC with a cold beverage and access it as you capture. You know, a sophisticated version of those helmets that hold two beer cans with a tube leading to your lips......

Just received an email from a client. He said he was sitting at his desk looking at all the awards he carried home Thursday night and just wanted to thank me for "making those possible". He, of course, made them possible by sinking his heart and soul into his product design and execution, and I told him so, but the kind thought is very much appreciated.

That event is absolutely worth it's weight in gold. There's not another photographer in sight, other than the guy shooting grip'n'grins (thank you Lord!!) I cannot imagine it!

Thanks Mark! Thanks for your link as well!

The people involved in Bent Prop are exceptional. I noticed that Anderson Cooper joined the expedition that is going on currently, as did my good friend Gov. Rick Perry. Somehow I'm imagining that the airplane/boat/whatever does not have anywhere near enough distance between opposite ends to make that a workable situation

Yes i'm in town all week.

I think the Watsoncam is well above what the KS-4 is rated to handle, and i really couldnt feel it that hard - nowhere near when its just on the camera. but it cant hurt to have it there! A dual 4x4 would make a fun experiment. Sounds like a good activity to try when two of my 4x4 owning good buddies get together at a certain hangar every October.

I'll get you some info on that. I think it's about 15K.

I have been pouring over the DJI website because I can hardly wait for my Phantom 2+ to arrive. Happened to find this product. Along the lines of a Movi, but looks less cobbled up. Have no idea what it will sell for, but it will be a very capable tool!

Still raining here in NZ. Enough, already! Nice weather for ducks, I guess.

Thursday last week (10th April) saw the 10th anniversary of Emirates operating to Glasgow.
To celebrate this occasion they upgraded 1 of the 2 daily flights from a 777-300 to an A380.
Over 6000 people descended on the airport to get a glimpse of the 1st ever A380 landing in Scotland.

Steve,

I don't know if I could ever visit NZ - all that rain would remind me too much of home.

Since Zim is stuck primarily photographing airplanes at NZ museums, I thought I'd follow his lead. Here is an English Electric F53 Lightning at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson. No rain, but we had a terrific sunset. Hang in there Steve

Day Seven: still raining...

This weather is payback for the first time we visited NZ, two years ago: then it was three weeks of sunshine with one rainy day. A sort of loss leader, you might say.

One more from the Pima Air & Space Museum. A funky airplane that I love to photograph. The Fairey AEW MK.3 Gannet. An anti-submarine aircraft flown by the Royal Navy during the '60s and early '70s.

Jim,

I think your friends at Canon can help you out with that video rig problem.

(Image 1)They have just introduced the CINE-SERVO 17-120 T2.95 lens with a removable servo drive unit. You can have the best of both worlds, standard ENG style servo controlled zoom and focus or remove the drive unit and use a Cine style rig. Note it is available in PL or EOS mount. This would be great for a shoulder rig.

It seems that the Cine side of the coin is just now discovering what they are calling Run-N-Gun which is nothing new to us TV people, we have had the handgrip servo zoom for ages. Makes a nice way to hold the camera and zoom with one hand while the other can operate the focus.

You have to have the offset mount viewfinder so the camera sits on the shoulder and is balanced with the "Zoom" hand while the VF is at or in front of your eye.

(Image 2) Or you can really go all out with a full on Cine style lens with add on remote controlled motors for Zoom Focus and Iris. Shown here on the Canon 14.5 -60mm mounted on a C-500.

(Image 3) Need something longer? How about the 30-300mm rigged with remote motors. You can see the remote zoom control at the lower right. And once again under all that other "stuff" is a C-500 rigged out for studio shooting.

(Image 4) A lovely combo monitor SSD recorder with all the bells and whistles. OLED screen, Waveform, Vectorscope, Dual slot SSD recorder. I-Phone and Android remote control.

Please note that it is available with PL or EOS mount

If you thought optical design was tough take a look at the mechanics inside the 200-400 f4 in this cut away view. They had several of these on display in the Canon booth at NAB and I found them fascinating.

The second image is a 400mm f2.8. And the last image shows a close up of the 200-400 extender group which is the rightmost four elements that swing in and out of the optical path.

I've always wondered how planes like that Fairey work, with the doubled props on one spinner. I'm surprised that the first prop doesn't foul the air for the second.

Counter-rotating... No air to foul really. I had a model plane that used these kind of props, as well as a helicopter with a dual main rotor. Nice thing about that setup, no torque-roll.
