Kite Cam - Any ideas for rigging one?
So my 11 year old daughter and I are crafting a kite camera rig to get some aerial photos/videos of our sailing adventures next summer. So far we've got a "prototype" that worked ok in our trials this weekend, but there are some flaws. Most notably, the camera is not steady enough so the video makes me nauseous. The camera we're using (Olympus Tough) doesn't have wifi/bluetooth for a remote, so we have to trigger the shutter delay if we want photos and start the video capture before we launch the kite. I'm guessing this would all be easier if we had a lightweight camera like a GoPro Hero.
Anyone else ever rig a kite camera? How did you do it? Any tips/tricks?
