I have a small invention that allows me to do 720p HD video from a Sony Bloggie mounted on top of the DSLR via the hot shoe. It runs all the time while I am shooting stills. The thing does a fairly good job and as long as I keep the view finder on the plane then the plane is centered in the video frame too. Of course there are multiple drawbacks to that system. Weight, no "zoom" for the video and the audio can NOT be turned off on the Bloggie - so I get every single "click" of the shutter loud and clear!! LOL!!

BUT. It does serve a purpose and especially when a pilot is doing a initial maiden flight of an aircraft I get BOTH stills and continuous video.

It's just ONE of the things that I have tried and worked on for helping me "shoot" models. A few other have not or did not work out quite like I thought but hey - gotta try!! LOL!!
