Default Good old fashioned 35mm

Im willing to go the full round of the variations of aerial photography, here I have built a rig to snap pics from a
Pentax C550 35mm autofocus, autoadvance camera.
Got from Media Play for 75% off its already reduced price, which made
it $12.00!!

Strapped it to a Tower Hobbies 40 and took off in 15 mph wind.
Flew good, snapped pics using Gear channel, could see the flash
from the ground!

Ill turn in the film tomorrow and see how it turns out!

That is similar to a setup I use with a Canon Snappy 20 camera. The key issue is that it has auto advance. I am using a Tower Trainer with a TT46 engine powering it. I also use this same plane for parachutes, toilet paper, and some cool nerf footballs that have little whistle's in them. I will try to take pics of my set-up.

Got my C550 from Santa. What engine did you use? I like your setup much better than mine since you can add it to other planes.
Cant wait to see your results!

Here are some photos of my set up. I have done the same with the Canon and an Aiptek digital. I have some pics taken this morning with the digital and will have some from the Canon in a few days.

Ok, here is how it is attached to the plane. The rubber bands that hold the camer box go on before the rubber bands to hold the wing. Two on each dowel plus 2 around the box dowels

I'll try again. The aiptek seems to be a little slow to upload.

Wow!
Hehehe. I bet those rubberbands at speed sound like a Jimmy Page guitar solo!
In response to a comment you made on another thread, I hope to have something new to share video wise before too much longer. I have been shooting video but its really been more-of-the-same kind of stuff. The illegal system seems to perform better than the legal system!
I want to get some slope combat footage put together but due to a change at work, I got one of these electronic leash's to wear half the month so hitting the slope is out till after Labor Day.
DRAG!!!

If I had Jimi Hendrix playing while I was flying, I could win the TOC. I'm gonna try these digital pics again. I saved them to CD.

I have been taking these pics on high resolution so I went back and redid a few of them to see if that would work. The next time, I will take the pic;s on low resolution.

Of course!
I havent had much success trying that.
Here is an old shot taken with a Pentax C550 35mm autofocus, autoadvance camera such as KE4UVQ is using. I mounted it inside a Right Flyer 40T trainer powered by an OS .46LA.
35mm still shot!
No matter what I tried I got too much vibration, even after hacking off the front end hardwood mounting rails and adding a new firewall and anti-vibration engine mounts. Talk about FrankenFlyer!
Plane flew like a pig from day one. Even without the camera.
