Kite Aerial Photography Plan B

Explore more
Everything was ready to go, the kite, the rig, the video camera … but I’d forgotten the memory card for the camera at home. Had to go for Plan B.

So what to do? Everything was set up, the kite up in the air, the camera mounted in its rig. What could be a useful Plan B?

Got it!

I could always attach my mobile phone to the rig and hope for the best. No remote controlling today, but hopefully – if I managed to set the phone camera angle right – the footage could be useful.

So away with the camera and the mobile phone fit snuggly into its position, I put the self-timer to a two minutes delay, hit ‘record’ and hoisted the lot high up into the air.

Did it work?

Well, yes, and here are the piccies to prove it!
