    Aerial Tintype



    Not the first Aerial but probably the first using a drone.

    neato, I would have thought they would get too shaky a platform. but looks like it stayed rather steady. sweet to see it evolve!

    Too cool, the merging of technologies old and new.

    I have seen glass plate photographs of the San Francisco earth quake damage shot from the air in 1906. They hoisted a camera up on a large kite. The shutter was rteripped with a solenoid and telegraph key.

    Not sure of the format dimensions, but they were in a panoramic aspect ratio and larger than 4x5.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I Imagine the kite professor at berkley would be open to hoisting a camera up for someone. actually I believe he already does, but I think mostly digital. Wish I could recall his name, neat work he got.
    Hmm must be this guy, but thought his site was more updated... http://kap.ced.berkeley.edu/

    anyways sorry back to drones...

    Wonder what drone model he was using ? It's nice to have something like that in yer tool box. Ha, my 5x7 is probably lighter than his rig.
