Rigs, Building Methods and Ideas I Like

It incorporates many challenges; understanding kites, photography, radio control, weather, the artistic possibilities and the technical obstacles. Among the first technical obstacles you encounter are those involved in building a rig. I pored over websites, drew up ideas, bought some materials, stood around in hardware and hobby stores staring at parts and then, in what turned out to be a brilliant move, went to the superb KAPiCA02 and KAPiCA03 conferences and met a whole bunch of KAP practioners and, at KAPiCA 02, built my first rig, from a kit.

I subsequently proceeded to build my own self-designed rig, to carry a Contax G1, and then another, smaller rig for my Minolta Dimage G500 digital camera. This digital camera made it very easy to document rig construction, and I did that as I built the G500 rig and have posted this material here to help new rig builders with some ideas. KAP camera rigs. We began with film cameras in 1996 and added digital cameras starting in 2001.

High-resolution digital cameras now rival or exceed 35-mm film for image quality, and digital technology has many advantages over film techniques for kite aerial photography. Most important is the ability to review pictures immediately in the field in order to confirm successful photography. The ability to edit, display, and print digital images shortcuts photochemical processing, and digital files do not degrade with time, as color film does.

Finally the cost of such digital photography is now competitive with equivalent film methods. KAP Rigs · How to KAP. CAT | KAP Rigs Last month I mentioned I was going to attempt a little CNC fabrication as part of a new rig design.

Now it’s time to report the results and explain a little bit about where this is going. First the CNC bit. It worked! I met with Jeremy at Mantaro back on Dec 9. The rest of the rig I should be able to make from carbon fiber rods and aluminum angle stock like my other rigs. The idea is to design a KAP rig with 3 rotation axes so that the camera can be placed at any attitude. No tags. Arduino Multi Kamera IR Control Library for Nikon, Canon, & more.

A first sketch was written fast and with best results. A friend of mine would like use the same easy system to control his Canon. I found the Canon timing and a lot of others at a thread here. Not just Canon, also Minolta, Sony, Olympus and Pentax.

To Do: KAP rig 2 - My Place On The Pale Blue Dot. Details Details Last Updated on Saturday, 16 February 2013 15:39 I upgraded my KAP camera to a Pentax WG-1, which does not fit in my original KAP rig.

KAP rig 2 - My Place On The Pale Blue Dot

So I had to build me a new one. The new rig is a mix of various materials that I wanted to experiment with: it uses aluminium for the camera cradle and one of the side supports and mounting beams, carbon rods for the other side support and the two longerons on top and plastic. The mini-servos used on KAP rig 1 were a little too delicate to my liking, especially since the new rig is heavier and larger than the previous one.

I looked everywhere for plastic gears that were a little less bulky than the ones I used before (they're from Conrad) but the only retail supplier I could find is in the US and their shipping costs more than the handful of gears I wanted to have. The Pentax has an infrared remote control feature which can be made to work with Arduino. TOUR DU MONDE : WOKIPI - nacelles - radio-commande - appareil photo. AEROPHOTO PAR CERF-VOLANT - WOKIPI.

Vous pouvez améliorer la stabilité du cerf-volant en "jouant" sur la longueur du fil central de la bride. USB to GoPro Hero Adapter. A complete solution for interfacing a PC via a USB port to your GoPro Hero / Hero2 / Hero3 (White Edition) / Hero3 (Black Edition)* camera for remotely controlling video recording and/or snapshots This all-in-one interface adapter contains the necessary electronic interface between the USB port on your PC and your GoPro Hero or Hero2 camera to control it remotely.

USB to GoPro Hero Adapter

No other hardware or software driver is required on the PC — just plug it into any USB port on your PC and into your GoPro camera. The adapter works via a virtual COM (serial) port that is automatically created when the adapter is plugged into the PC. · Adapter cable is 6 feet long—can be extended with standard USB cable extenders · Remotely control power on and power off* functions on the GoPro from your PC · When properly configured for One-Button mode (or using the autoexec script on the Hero3 Black Edition), the GoPro camera will record video or take snapshots automatically based on the control from the PC.

Cerfs-volants, tubes et accessoires. Généralités. 6.5' Rokkaku "Focus" PLK Pilot 2m² Enrouleur monofil ( megaspule ) Flow Form type Miztral. Je pratique le cerf-volant statique depuis plus de sept ans, et je n'ai pas souvenir d'un cerf-volant aussi pratique et efficace que le Flowform; à la fois stable et bon volateur je ne peux que vous le conseiller. Inventé sur le concept du parapente, le Flowform est un cerf-volant souple sans structure. Alliant donc l'aspect pratique par son nombre de brides limité (3 quilles) et ses caractéristiques de vol, ceci fait de lui un monofil que tout bon cerfvoliste se doit d'avoir dans son sac!... Le modèle présenté ici, vole avec un vent moyen, trés stable, il développe une traction intéressante grâce à son 1.6 m2 de surface...
