Been wanting to get some custom stickers made for some time. With the help of Alex, we put these together. After trying a few variations we ended up deciding on using the image I made of the logo using tiny electronic parts (more on how that was done here). As well as the main image we also used up the remaining space for another sticker. Two stickers for the price of one :). They were made by Awesome Merchandise.
I’ve re-edit Nuptial Flight to enter it into the DJI ‘Explore Your Imagination’ contest. Please head to the video page and hit the ‘Like’ button. It will put me in with a chance of winning.
Big Up :)
Here’s a quick post running through how I’ve tried to smooth out the footage coming from the GoPro and DJI Phantom.
There are basically two important things to do so that the footage doesn’t have a jello effect.
You need to balance your props and create a shock absorber between the camera and aircraft.

Been shooting a fiar amount of footage with the shiny new GoPro3 Black recently and the shakiness of the footage was bugging me. I tried using my DSLR handle and found it worked well at getting lower shots and keeping the camera still. However the size of this was totally unnecessary. I did a bit of hunting online and couldn’t find anything that was suitable.

I’ve got a big exciting project coming up which will involve a fair amount of time-lapse bits. So to make the shots look a bit more interesting I set out to make my own motorized time-lapse dolly. The above video was shot entirely with a GoPro Hero 2 and the little rig I built.

That’s right. After a year of work panodrop.com finally goes live. Its been a fun project but I couldn’t have estimated the amount of time, effort and not to mention money, it would take to get something like this up and running. All a valuable learning experience however.

This summer I decided to embark on little project. I wanted to build a fixed gear bike. I’m familiar with bikes and how they’re put together and have spent a fair bit of time upgrading and replacing parts, but I’ve never built a complete one. My original plan was to take my old Create Fixie and replace the frame and a couple of other components. This is what happened at first but it soon escalated with me buying a completely new bike and spending a small fortune. The result however makes it all worth while. I now have my very own unique machine.
