I'd love it, even if no one else wants it.

Morri, what was the source for that camera? - I might "need" one

check out the arial photography section.. But be careful, that is a very dangerous section to snoop around in! Before you know it you spend all your hobbie budget and time on cameras and camera related stuff. You have been warned!

No, no, no stay here I have the link. Believe me It can be a bit confusing figuring out which keychain camera to purchase. And once you purchase it (direct from China) it's a bit unsettling whether or not you will even get your product. But the link below is legit and they have great email communication!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/150564145353...#ht_8116wt_935

This link is long but this outfit has the best cameras with the quickest turn around (about ten to twelve days). You can only order them via eBay and they only accept paypal.

And if you do order a camera include a memo to have the date and time stamp removed on their end. They will email you a firmware upgrade/patch to do it on our end but if you mess it up the camera will never work.

We can have all our Bluff Cove planes outfitted with cameras to capture all the madness! I have three and Ian has one.

Keep in mind everyone, Wayne makes a good point, taking the video is one thing making into a movie is another! Most of the footage is monotonous and can put everyone to sleep except the person who took it and to them it's the coolest thing ever!

A computer AND video editing software will be required. These cameras do capture HD footage but it takes up 100mb's per minute of video so you may need a back-up hard drive to store all your raw video. The raw video that was used to make the video that started this thread is over 3GB's.

Also, the cameras do not come with the micro SD card. You will need a "class 6" or higher for fast capture and playback and no smaller than 8GB's (which can handle the full 40 minutes of recording time estimate about 15 to 20 bucks for this).

Just wanted everyone to know what they are getting into with these little cameras.

And if you get the bewer bigger one and it doesn't work even after buying the class 8 card you will want to pull your hair out.

That was going to be my next question Morri - what editing software? Bought a new Canon T2i a week or so ago - so I can shoot HD video with that too.

I bought "Power Director" and I like it a lot. It was listed with the most bang for your buck at an "entry level" video editing progam. It is simple enough to get started quickly but compliacted enough to allow you to do some cool things (of which I've just scratched the surface). The one really good thing is the way it uses the computers memory while editing. Video files can be large and editing these files can slooooooow your computer way down while doing the editing. This program keeps things running fast which is nice.
I might add that I would be happy to be the designated video editor for our Flying mis-adventures.

Cool. Even if I buy a copy - nice to have someone that's used it to show me the ropes. Would be really cool to montage a bunch of different videos of the 'Cove into one presentation.

For BASIC editing I used to the use the free stuff on my Macs, iMovie, but they upgraded it and it is too tough for simple ol' me to mess with. So now I use the free stuff that comes with Windows. I forget the name of the thing, and you may need to download it, but it is actually pretty good. This was the first video I put together with that software. Nothing fancy.
