Hi guys, here is a topic.

Airliner Videography and Biz Jet Videography. Sounds cool to me. Especiially with Digital Quality and superb sound.

Anyone else in this hobby of Taping aircraft for playback? I think this would be neat to get into. Although what camcorder for airliner shooting is right, i have no clue! Anyone have clues?

Justplanes Video's are all shot Digital now. Sometimes when i watch them it gives me the inspiration to want to do the same, ya know.

So common guys, unlease the video side of yourself. Do you enjoy seeing the aircraft in motion, as well as still pictures?

Before starting aviation photography in 96 I made 4 years of aviation videography from Faro. It was great to spend an afternoon at the spotting place and late on the day watching the action at home or at a friends home. I changed to photography because I like the "stamps collection" style, that is watching the photos on an album and more easily share with other friends at any place, no need to be at home. I could make a JPV style video from Faro with lots of airlines that no long exist. BTW, JPV already made a video from Faro.

My flatmate promised me that I could borrow her video camera sometime for that purpose next summer.... Can't wait to try.

Does anyone have any tips / hints what to do / not to do? I have only once held a similar camera before, so I'm a complete novice....

A hint, don't touch that zoom-button. I always get dizzy  Nuts when looking at novice-films (also known as family videos) because the zoom is sooo fun to use, you know, you can zoom IN... and... you can... zoom OUT

Seriously, don't use it to much and only use it when it has something to show close-up or something.

It may look cool in the camera but when watching it on a screen it's not nice.

Joe Pries: Thankfully, I'm not in the US.... Big grin

Thanks Fredrik Hjort for the advice. To be honest, the zoom button was the one thing I wanted to play around with the most, as it is such an amazing feature. Now I'll reconsider that....

Who knows, maybe I'll even find the time this winter, when Concorde flies again...

I'm going on a long,far away holiday very soon (which fortunately involves lots of flying!) and about a week ago I bought a digital recorder for the holiday.In order to familliarise myself with the equipment I went to LHR on Wednesday (I only live about a mile from airport) to try it out.I got back home to play it back on the TV and was amazed at the picture quality,unfortunately my usually steady photography hand deserted me in the windy conditions so the camera angles were not great.I'm using a Sony DCD-TRV130E,it cost about £450 discounted from £600 (sorry but I have no idea of the cost in US$-although I know it cost the equivalent of AU$1200).I don't think I'll use it for airline 'movies' in general as I am quite happy with what I can a achieve with a still camera,although it is nice to be able to capture the sound of aircraft as well as just the image.With a little practice it may be a useful aid but for the moment it is only a holiday accessory. Smile/happy/getting dizzy
