Hi Ben-
Figured I'd share a few of these with you (until I get the disc burned.... oops :blushing: ). Do you remember the place????? B)


Very nice, Laura! Love the shots of airborne kites from a perspective you don't usually see. :)

Very Cool Shots, Laura!!! :clap; Where is that???

I love the fact you can see Ray Bethell's kites on the ground in the one shot! Looks like a wonderful place to fly!

Those shots are from Newport this past July and the kites you are referring to are Joe Perron's, not Ray Bethell's.

Hey Ben,

Great KAP pictures. Keep it up, it is some much fun. May be time to get a Flickr account and join the KAP group.

Hope to KAP with you next year if you are going to the SPI kite fest.

Hey Aero, read your post and thought you said "Thats some awesome REVOLUTION on that camera" my first thought was "what is she ON" then thought it was a pun about Rev kites, than about he amount Ben can revolve the camera on his pan and tilt rig.

Just now popped back into the thread, I see it says RESOLUTION, stupid me. I have just sent myself to stand in the naughty corner.

Ho hum, there you go :lol:

I really like the fact that we can see the photographer in the photos.
The pics look like they were taken here.

That place is special to me for a couple reasons. One of which is that it's right by the kite store where I got my first stunt kite, many, many years ago. It was a Rainbow stunt kite with "aircraft grade aluminum spars" :)

There are quite a few KAP folks on this forum and I thought it would be of interest to post something that those who use Brooks Leffler's BEAK might enjoy. The BEAK (Brooxes Electric AutoKAP) kit allows one to autoKAP with an Infrared (IR) triggered camera. The rig pans about 30 degrees, fires the shutter and keeps going until you bring it down or the batteries run out or your camera card fills up. To change the camera angle you have to bring the camera down and then send it back up. I wanted to add a tilt component to my rig so made some enquiries. I then set about designing my own BEAK with the tilt function.


This video shows the PPT BEAK in action. Peanut Piston Tilt BEAK. Now you can get both panned and tilted shots in one KAP session.
with special thanks to Jynx for helping me 'produce' this 'publication' below.
