Wow what a start!
Did my first "real" 360 recording yesterday, and what a day! lol
Threats of getting my hood smashed in. (other photographers did not like me being around. lol)
A lengthy recording of some laps around the track, and then.
As the bike passes me in the pitlane, something makes me stop and pay attention, and as i turn, i see it happend.
A slight wobble of the rig, clear movement, and then, PEEEW, off it goes.
At 200km/h down the finishing straight, right before finishing line, right in to saphalt it goes, slides over the finishing line and starts tumbeling.
This is about when i start cursing and counting cash. So i grab me a smoke and start heading down the pitlane to gather parts.
As im waiting for the red flag and the track to clear, i look at my remote, and i see, 6 cams recording....
Grin starts picking up and i head out on the track, looking for the rig.
I finally find it, some 100m from the ejection point and check it to find all 6 cameras still recording.
Out of allignment, but still in place and ready to go another round.
The rig had lost one of its corners, but had taken the beating like a champ.
Later i found the parts that had fallen off and it where a clean break with 2 parts and no big issue to glue back togeather.
After checking the cameras i find that 2 are un damaged, 2 had slight scraping of the corner of the case and 2 cameras had scraping through the case in a corner but could be sealed up with glue.
Had i taken any other rig, this would have been a total writeoff for shure.
BTW, the crash where totally my foult. I used a manifrotto superclamp to secure, but with a wedge of wood between, and no security line. big mistake. I did not secure the superclamp with a plastic strip either. and i didnt check all my cams good anough, so one cam where at 1080, making my stich even harder.
I love hindsight, great vision, bad smell.
Ill upload the run when im done stiching. Not the best stichup. but it sort of works.
