The Seemingly Limit of the Camera
Oct 26, 2012


Below is an image I had recently made, which I'm not minding to share with you; where, I had pushed one of my D3 cameras to "outside the wire," with an attached Kenyon Labs KS-8 gyroscopic stabilizer coupled to a VRII 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, used at 200mm, via use of an ultra-slow shutter speed of 1/10th second, as I physically stood on the landing skid of a photo ship, Robinson R-44 helicopter. The photo ship was in semi-hover, per my direction; and the subject UH-1 Huey photoed was made to be slowly moving in flight.

For me, through my professional photography, this image is perhaps the most extreme limit I've yet taken a camera on a dedicated, very expensive photo shoot (besides the photo ship helicopter, three subject helicopters and an airplane were flying for me, for a period of time). And for a low-rpm, 2-bladed helicopter, I've yet to see another image like it, at this level of quality.

The other images made during this photo shoot - are uniquely different as well.

Cheers to all y'all,


Nikon D3
