Hello,
I have a Kodak Easyshare Z 1275 that takes videos.
It uses SD memory.
On my first attempt at taking videos from my helicopter (Thunder Tiger e550), the camera video recorded a 0K file. It would work fine before and after a flight. My second flight, I flew for 60 seconds and then landed.
My guess is that the SD memory connections were vibrating?
Or are there other things that can make a digital camera not work?

Probably vibrations causing the camera to shut down.

I had a Sony P&S that just shut-down and wouldn't take video in flight.

Trying spooling up VERY slowly and put the heli on grass or something soft to help cushion it. It still may shut-down in flight but your chances of getting off the ground are better.

When in doubt...auto out

I realized this morning that my camera has some internal memory. It will only work for a few minutes of video but enough to test if it's vibrations on the SD connector or just vibrations on the camera.

thx

One more question, does anyone know if static buildup like from a belt driven tail is an issue on Digital cameras?
