Now this really is fun

Not sure if anyone here has got to do this before, but late last year I got the chance to abuse a friendship and take this aerial photography blimp for a spin. Camera is tethered to the blimp which is tethered to the ground and you take photos with the remote that also controls the blimp that has a video preview of the viewfinder. Classy.

All I can say is, if you ever get the chance, make up a reason to try it!

    Surely Ed can build one out of plasticine?

  • But wherever would he find the hot-air to fill it?

    great idea… wish i had a powerful zoom lens :P

  • I’m pretty sure the point of the blimp is to get further away not closer ;)
