« Part 6: Lighten Up! Part 7 of Kite Camera Reel series Part 8: The Reel Deal... »

Not much to say. I’ve got some video editing stuff to figure out (upside down footage – camera is currently dangling upside down underneath the rig – and how to play some sappy sailing music in the background), but otherwise it was a success. I’m going to coat all the parts with three coats of Arm-R-Seal to try to keep the saltwater out. Wait until you see the footage from the kitecam!

That looks really cool! I got a little nervous when the camera seemed to be dangling just above the water. I assume that you were controlling the speed of the line going out so as to not dunk the camera. Looking forward to the kite cam.

The camera is actually in a watertight enclosure, so fret not. Wait til you see the dunking first person…
