Notes on Kite Aerial Photography: Background
Vol. 3, No. 1, Winter 1997 (71K jpg)
Issue nine covers KAP electronics and has one of my all-time favorite AE articles -- instructions by Peter Bults on how to reconfigure an aircraft transmitter so that it is more suitable for KAP purposes. The issue also includes a piece on flying digital cameras and a description of servo modification techniques. Altogether another winner

Issue ten is an intriguing one and in several ways mirrors my own developments in kite aerial photography. Of late I have been getting increasingly interested in the applied dimensions of KAP and this issue provides examples ranging from the documentation of petrified tree stumps to the study of penguin colonies in Antarctica.

Another fact-filled issue with descriptions of several interesting rigs. Perhaps the most poignant story in this issue is associated with the cover image. It was taken one year after an SLR rig was dropped into the North Sea while it was being towed behind the same boat. The fine cover shot is testimony to perseverance.

Brooks completed the third year with a successful experiment in digital printing. Having previously produced the Aerial Eye a piecework on personal printers this issue was produced by a digital printing house on a Agfa Chromapress. It is a new and handsome look for the newsletter.
This issue, addressing "gadgets & gimmicks", provided ample grist for the inventive dreams including descriptions of novel frame counters, aluminum gluing technique, new twists on video assist, stereo rigs and much, much more.
