I am seeking to get footage in exchange for DVD of
your flying . I live in the homes above your landing pad.

I want to shoot POV from your start off point,
and landing.

I am learning HD camera work,as my career.

I am at home,so it makes it easy to do it SAME DAY

CUT OFF POINT -APRIL 2009.

Can't beat that price

Better yet we can probably pay you to drive our car back down (usually get $20), and you can get a lot of footage of launches and since you'll be going back down to the LZ (landing zone), you'll be there for all the landing action.

I live in Sylmar too (1/2 block from Hubbard St Elem), so I can help you a bit. Weekends are always best. This weekend is looking good for nice weather and if it pans out then there will be a lot of pilots out there.

Hi Sondra,

That's great news for the club. I've been trying my best to post meaningful onboard videos of my own flying at Sylmar on YouTube and have had some success at attracting existing and potential pilots. You'll see then mixed in here: http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=NMERider

I like having ground based video edited with onboard. Maybe you can work with those of us who like mounting cameras on our wings?

Cheers, Jonathan (Long Beach)

I'm just a beginner so my flights would be boring but here is an example of my flights with a camera mounted on my helmet. (SD). I would recommend a wider lens for onboard POV and mounted on the helmet seems pretty interesting as long as the lens is wide enough because a longer lens would look really jerky with the head movements. The really experienced pilots could shoot some really exciting stuff. My little helmet cam can see 170 degrees. I think it's an 8mm lens but I'm not sure.

Hey Sondra!

Good luck with the video thing. I cannot be down there much due to other commitments, but I'm looking for good "moonwalk landing" footage for training purposes. (Ask the local hot-shots, they'll be able to explain what that is.) If you get some, could I have just the last 10 or so seconds of the landings?

If anyone signs up with her, please try and get some of this footage. There are a bunch of pilots away from So. Cal. who don't really understand it and need a video to clarify.

Thanks!

Actually, that's a very decent video; nicely put together.

It's interesting how the sun caused a black spot to appear in the video where it was.

(nice landing as well!)
