Kiting

So last weekend we headed to the beach to try out the my new camera and play in the sand.  The water temperatures here are still very cold.  There were a few kids playing along the shoreline but none of them were venturing in past their knees.  With our long cold winter the lakes are taking a bit longer to warm up than normal. 


  So I picked up this mini camera on Ebay with the thoughts of using it as a kite cam.  It is super small and very light.  Also it was inexpensive at $13 so if it crashes into the ground or lake I'm not out much.   I rigged it to a para-foil.  This first attempt resulted in unusable video.   Next time I'm going to try to rig it to a delta or a box kite and see if I can get a more stable video.  I was able to take a few pictures on the beach not to bad for a 2 mega pixel cam the size of a quarter.
