I don't have my downlink all set up yet, so I just had a trigger on my Tx and had the lens at a fixed angle. I did have the AceOne stabilizing the roll / pitch axis of my gimbal (which yielded mostly straight horizons). Taken from the park at the end of my street on Lake Austin.

These are straight from the camera with no cropping, level adjustments, etc.

I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks guys!

That was the 5d2 with a 16-35 L series. That was the second flight with that camera on the heli...first flight was right before that one and I took a 6 minute video where I went even higher

I guess the AceOne just instills a major amount of over-confidence.

BTW, do you know the best way to get video from the 5d2 into Virtual Dub? It was super windy so it needs some deshaker...but there wasn't much rolling shutter which is good I guess.

I'm a Mac guy.

I recommend staying under 300ft due to FAA.

I'm a mac guy as well...just running virtual dub in boot camp. What do you use for video stabilization then on your mac?

Thanks Robert!

I use VirtualDub and deshaker on my PC. I just down load the video file to the PC then run VD with deshaker, pass 1 and pass 2. The only trouble I have is it leaves the file much larger than the source file. I haven't found the right codec to recompress without a lot of detail loss.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

But are you having to convert from mov to avi first? That's the part I'm trying to figure out now. I can get it into an avi, but it's loosing a bunch of quality.

Freaking Awesome

Colin,

I know just how far up there you had to get to take the photo of the white house on the hill. The wind conditions yesterday were outside the envelope of most aircraft and pilots. I don't think it is overconfidence, I have seen your equipment and know your skill. You have the right tool with the "AceOne" for the job.

Ahh yes. I did also have that trouble when using my Panasonic vid camera. I never found a satisfactory solution for the conversion that was satisfactory.
Since I was also taking stills with my canon el'chepo (PowerShot A1100), I also take videos with the same camera and VD takes the MVI file.
Sorry, not much help.
EDIT:
By the way, your still shots are outstanding.

Regarding FAA flight restrictions. I assume that the 700' that Colin is talking about is from the point he is standing to the point where his helicopter was positioned to take the photo. Relative to adjacent property, he is well within 400' due to the height of the hill that the house was sitting on. This is based on my observations from watching Colin at this location several days ago.
