I have an opportunity to conduct a day long scenics shoot from a brand new helicopter. My first thought was to find and rent a helicam mount but I'm not sure how that attatches to the helicopter. Will a door mount do it? Are either of those available for rent?
Camera: I was thinking an HD rental and was thinking XDcam to avoid vibrations or perhaps P2 solid state. Sure the XDcam is compressed but what isn't? I'm prepared to take that hit. Also I don't have any HD hardware to capture or playback with so I figured the XDcam stuff would import into After Effects for cleanup work.
Seems fool proof soooooooo.... shoot me down... perhaps that's not a good expression! What am I missing?
