Phantom Over Provence
Our next meeting is November 21st and we will have a guest speaker - Romeo Durscher.
In 1888 George Eastman created the Eastman Kodak camera and coined the slogan You Press the Button, We Do the Rest. For over a century the familiar cliché of the shutterbug in Bermuda shorts has remained largely unchanged in spite of the sweeping advances in technology that have seen the original Kodak camera evolve into a digital wunderkind capable of taking thousands of images, while also recording high-definition video. Nevertheless, in spite of these developments, vacation photos and videos have always been necessarily tethered to the camera’s position at the user’s eye level (or, at best, on a small tripod).
Could the latest round of technology change all of this? Is traveling with a multi-rotor even convenient? And what kind of images can a Bermuda shorts wearing ground-based pilot really get?
Romeo Durscher just spent a month in Provence, France with the goal of testing a DJI Phantom Quadcopter with a GoPro camera attached to it. His experiences, including a live demonstration of how to create an aerial panorama, will be shared with future Top Gun pilot photographers.
We will also have our regular Club Meeting with Digital Peer Review (Special Subject - Macro). At this month's meeting, the subject is Macro. You may enter up to 5 images total for the meeting; General Pictorial, Mono, or the special subject. Please send your images to Steve Terlizzi before 11/19/13. We need a volunteer for refreshments.
Please join us for a fun evening - guests are always welcome!
