So Josh, what did your final product turn out like?

Well, I can't say I was too happy with mine. I made a mistake. I shot the aerials in 24p with OIS on and a shutter speed of 1/60. Can you say NIGHTMARE???

Here is what I should've done (and I did, thanks to my cool pilot).

1.) Shoot in 60i.

2.) Turn OIS off

3.) Turn shutter speed mode off

4.) Use Manual Exposure

Haven't shot it yet, don't know if I actually will.

I was wondering, though, if anyone has a link or something, some footage I could see, where I could compare footage shot wth a fancy nosemount vs. footage shot handheld out the side?

I use the Canon-XL1 for heli and fixed wing. Turn your microphone way down. On the Canon I also remove the lens hood as this acts as a sail. Hook the camcorder to your body and your body to the coppter. Crank up the speed to get good action on the blades. Hold on and have fun. Bob

How about a "steady bag" ?


I've also heard of a local photog that used an ordinary pillow in his lap while shooting through the front windshield of the helicopter.
