There is NOTHING like the feel of freedom in a helicopter, especially a  attack type.   Yeah3

Wonderful camera platform. With a film savvy pilot, amazing things can be done. My all time favorite pilot, John Applegate, passed away from old age a few years ago.

We were once working at 10k ft in the Sierras and flying close to tree tops. 10k is the ceiling for a lot of Jet Ranger work. So, I'm trying to work but, catch the rotor blades about 3 feet from touching the pine tree tops. I told John that, I couldn't concentrate being that close. He said, "Relax, no one is shooting at us". I miss him. A really great guy and an ace chopper pilot.

DAMN,
your giving me memories some are good, and some are not so good, but the flight always was.

Lmao Pffft...we kept it simple on the P-3. We just attached a gyro to the camera.

Many Jet Rangers had Gyros built into the aircraft body. The rental was an additional $600-1000/hr for those. My local vendor had one Gyro equipped JR out of his three.

Cameras come in lots of sizes, from hand held still and cine to big stuff like 70mm Panavision. You work backwards from the camera and format required..and the budget, of course.

I prefer to work with smaller, lighter cameras, but, you don't always have a choice.

Robert Richardson, a great cinematographer, had Panavision referb the big 70mm for The Hateful Eight. Scroll down and look at the size of that camera.

A lot of non film work is done with Arri Alexa and Red Cameras. Much smaller but, not the quality of Film IMO. I work in stills, but often in tech support of motion work. It's interesting to see the hardware advancements.

I am now officially for global warming.

Provided we can keep the coastal elites from migrating inward to escape it.

I would have to move out of Florida, but that's OK. I don't like Florida anyway.

This one snippet from a sentence says it all "at this year’s World Government Summit".

This means that Harrison Ford aka Indiana Jones is a stupid bastard.

The planet is heading into a mini ice age for Gods sake.  People are going to freeze to death.

As an old Radio Program Director once said to me when we were discussing some bullshit thing that they were trying to push on us.....

"This Shit Doesn't Flush Around Here".

Piss on them and their opinions.
I'm not littering nor do I own any plastic factories or mines or coal/nuclear powered plants.

Maybe you should address the folks that do dumb ass.
