Post your first AP/AV

Ok, here are my first AV and AP for Robin, maybe others have fun to post theirs too.

My first AV was the real fun. Pencam taped to the side of a heavily unbalanced easystar. First I didn't even come out of the right turn, then managed a left turn, managed to do a self portrait, everything a few meters above ground, and I think even the landing was so so but I don't have it on the clip ...

Nothing special with the first AP shot, the scenery should be familiar meanwhile

Have fun!

First AV with Aiptek Pencam

Here my first ever AV, this was with a Sony cybershot rubberbanded to the outside of my fuselage. Now I have a much cheaper cybershot inside the fuselage looking thru a "window".

Haven't really got back into AV since opening the AP business but have a desire to try some HD filming off the heli soon

My first AP shot from 2003

Nice thread!

I looked up a picture from my first AP sortie back in 2003 using a Mustek Mini3 camera modified for an electronic switch.

It was just 1MP but took surprisingly good pictures AND video (but the video was not good). Will look for the video to post here too.

I also enclose a picture from 2008 of the same area - now with a 10MP Pentax Optio S10 - but with the same airframe(!)...

Here are my first couple of digitals - Aiptek 1.3 - taken almost exactly 6 years ago. Still looking for my first AP, though - from 35mm..

First and only so far. Just finished working out some better cam mounting so it's not always pointed straight down. Hopefully more and better to come.
