Hi, I'm very interested in aeral photography. I have a big gasoline powered helicopter and i wonder how aerial photography works. What do I need? Can I fly with a regular camcorder(like Sony Handicam), or do I need special cameras and equipments? Are they expensive? Thanks.

I did this for quite a few years, but have since quit doing aerial photography. Also I don' t sell equipment anymore, but have a look at what I was using. I designed it, manufactured it and sold to many operating companies.
If I can help direct you let me know.
As I said, I don't sell this stuff anymore, Here it is:

I sold about 200 of these camera carriers, so there must be quite a few of them still around.
