    So is he seeing what the camera sees or what?

    Let me guess, the transmitter is plugged into the video out while using the live view LCD? Mark III, either 1D or 1Ds?

    This is freaking cool...

    Re: Photostory

    Even simpler, a cheap video surveillance camera mounted on the frame.
    With cheap wireless surveillance cameras with built in transmitters for 25 ($50) it seems by far the best option.
    Because he was using wide angle, he wasn't aiming exactly using the video camera.
    A fair amount of parallax but he's not going for close ups

    I can think of an easier way to get live view using the viewfinder like the ZigView
    Put a surveillance camera on a modified clip-on eyepiece, then at all focal lengths you get true viewing.
    Then you can use another servo channel to drive the zoom ... he didn't bother.


    Now - can you recognise the camera?
    No flash, but has a knob on the top left So it's not 1DSmkIII, 1DmkIIN, or mkIII.

    No built-in flash + no vertical grip + knob = 5D.

    Re: Photostory

    What caught my eye was the CANON logo on the balloon - or more exactly the adhesive residue where that logo had been taken off.
    Where did he get it from ?
    Was it originally used by Canon at some event ?

    The question is is if he's going to market it.

    Ooo, I think I know!

    This looks like one of those "camera around the world" thingys, much like some of the members here are doing.

    Except this one floats all over the world suspended from that tiny dirigible (made in Kameraballon, Germany obviously).

    Every once in a while the craft lowers itself to the ground, and whomever is lucky enough to be right near it grabs hold and takes a picture with the attached camera.

    As a special gift prize for each "photographer", they get a Sony/Maunaloa Virtual Surfer gizmo, which when worn and used makes the user actually feel like they're riding the waves at Maui.

    You can almost see the guy about to "wipe out" in the photo, it's so realistic... :ihih:

    Then the "camera zeppelin" is off and away, on to its next destination.

    Am I close??? :thumbsup: :biggrin5:

    Re: Photostory

    Since he's an accredited pro at the DTM final at Hockenheim, I don't think so.
    It's the kind of thing that, if it works well, you wouldn't want others to be doing.
    Unless you could make a lot of profit from selling it to them.
    More profit that you could with selling your photos ...

    I kind of liked Steve's scenario. Sound like a great idea anyone want to donate a camera to give it a try?
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??
