A quick clip I put together in Final Cut yesterday, captured with the Sony 1000 POV, make sure you select HD..........



The ultimate low-speed pass...but you forgot to close your hangar door and it 'ruined' the shot.

Thank you! I shot it in 4K, but reduced it to 2048 HD for the Vimeo upload. The Sony doesn't allow stabilization when shooting 4K. I see a tiny bit of "jello" in the clip, but it's the least I have ever seen from a POV cam in that scenario.The air was pretty solid, so I decided to see what the outcome would be. I have it reset for HD and am going to fly some stabilized footage in the next few days. One feature that I wish the Sony had is reduced fields of view, it has 170 & 120 degrees depending upon the resolution and codec. GoPro has that feature, but no stabilization in any mode.


At full-screen on my 5K iMac the jello is noticeable, Jim. Look forward to seeing the stabilized HD footage.

It's a work in process, not satisfied yet obviously, but I think I'm on the right track. I'm going to see what the X70 does on a mount, recording to the Samurai which will be in the cockpit.

Jay i've never seen on up close, but I understand those Bronco's have a pretty capable photo plane cargo area? - only one way to find out!

And I think they are fairly fast.

All, thanks for the comments and insight as to what is legal or not for event photography.

Jay, Mark, yes a ticket was required so I suppose the "It's their sandbox, their rules" applies in this case.

Jim, I will work the nice guy angle for next year and see if they will let me play in the balcony. From the looks of it, my equipment would fit in with theirs and no one would even know I wasn't part of the photography team.

To our UK friends, sounds like your photo rules are even nutter. Unfortunately that probably means it's coming our way sometime soon.

Cheers,
Dan

PS - Looks like I have to add a photo for being on top of page. Not shooting much that is flying lately but been playing with a 200mm F1.8. This photo is shot with 1.4X converter getting me 280mm, F2.5. Just playing, nothing fancy.

The rear opens as either clamshell doors or they can be removed. Bay Area photographer Clark Cook has shot from one and aside from being a little cramped, he seems to like it as a camera ship.

The problem with Nanchangs is that an hour later, you have to post another one!
