in boat filming

ok we have spoken before about individual cameras etc but what sort of price could we do a whole race series ie 15 boats offshore with camera and recorder would hard drive now be the way to go.
I'm trying to get tv interested in the racing for all classes we need in boat footage or helicopter (which is cheaper / best) but think either one person needs to foot bill and be responsible for editing or work out price for all teams blimey at cowes jackie had about 3 million cameras on her boat (ok 2!) but someone had to pay !
anyone with contacts or ideas greatly receive ta
and yes i am beginning to look like my avatar!!!!

Fixed wing is way cheaper then hellichopper, but does not do tight turns as well.

Used fixed wing for budget rally footage, and looked similar to hellichopper for the straight line shots.

In my experience hard drive is not the way to go - we tried Gecko helmets outfit at the boat show in 2005 with an Archos hard drive unit and it wouldn't record F all! it recorded a bit, then the hard drive would skip and corrupt the file leaving nothing!

We have used solid state memory such as SD cards with good effect, but the resolution might not be high enough for anything other than short shots. The pros use very robust tape units which do not have the same problems except in high G situations - if yoiu want to chat about it email me and I'll get in touch.

Here is a really good link for anyone that is interested in an off the shelf package - http://www.dogcamsport.co.uk/index.html Don't forget hard drives don't like high G's!

To use one of those remote camera's your Mini DV camcorder needs an AV in, most only have AV out

Here's a few vids where we've used on-boards. (recording to a mini DV camera. most Sonys have av in, you just need to know how to enable it)

Chrickey Jon, if you have to work like that on the RB you will have to be craned out of the boat at Plymouth. Don't worry, I'll have a massage expert waiting to soothe your poor old stressed mucsles. All part of the service!

You don't have to work at all if you trim in a bit, and go slower, but no one ever won much 'cruzin'.
