Al, you are close to 300 with the 1.4, so I'd go with the 400.

Great perspectives JG. I din't think Logan would let you anywhere near that close.

I'm guessing the best plan of attack is to talk this over with Zim when we're together in October.One of my clients just completed a high end condo tower that will afford an incredible perspective of the Dallas skyline. I want to shoot a series of gihugic pano compositions from that perch. I want to do other cities/landscapes as well as I begin traveling more and shooting for fun, so I need to get all the correct gear and work on becoming proficient in it's use.

Jim, these were from a Boston Harbor Plane Spotting Cruise held this weekend. I'm not sure if we were allowed special access with the tour boat but from the signage I did notice there is a keep away zone of 100 ft from the shoreline. With a double decked boat we were certainly outside that. But still close enough that we got some waves from the pilots......

Thanks Jim
Yep 1.3TB with of images..its a bitscary really.
I have just been looking through them over the last day or so just scratching the surface.
Steve the LAX stuff is from a chopper.
The guy who flies the R44 is a legend. As are the tower staff at LAX generally being super accommodating even passing traffic info along for the complex on the other side.
Brilliant place to shoot from the afternoon was harder than the morning the Robbo doesnt like hovering in a tailwind at all.
Dusk stuff was brilliant..

Wow, you really got your money's worth from those chopper flights.

1.3 TB?! Were you on your own for this trip, or is your spouse/family just really understanding?

Can you say..."back up, back up, back up?!"

So you can charter an R44 to shoot those perspectives? When are we going Zim?

May be an X, or a Phenom 300, those ok? The 12 is going to take 12 weeks to Wilsonize.

Yep Star Helicopters are excellent.
Ryan Samala is the guy to see he has been doing it for a while and knows pretty much exa mctky where to put it and as importantly when.
Great value!

Very cool Al! Give us the technical details surrounding those images................


Thanks Jim,
its pretty easy in theory,...the actual equipment is harder to source...

2.5s @ F8/ISO160.....car speed 5/10mph
Shot with 7D & 10-22mm Sigma lens, attached to a pole mounted on the car.
PS to remove pole from image.
I'lI dig up a non PS image n see if theres a BTS pic of it happening.
The Boom is 4.5metres /14.75 feet.

Basically goes like this ...Boom is attached to two HD suction cups on car, then clamped to Boom, magic arm on end of Boom attached to 7D (no grip) with 10-22 lens, remote to fire....

Wow, lots of cool stuff this morning! Darren, what a fabulous voyage you made. And you certainly did good in Alaska and LAX! I love that first landing shot you posted, with the vapor and mist.
