Reply To: Autofocus Frustrations Recording RC Airplanes in Flight


I don’t think you’ll regret it. When you get it – level it up, put the camera onto full zoom and spend ten minutes adjusting the feel. With the sliding top plate and the balance knob, you will be able to tilt down, and up at quite an angle and when you let go, it will stay there. If you find you run out of ‘up’ it’s a fairly simply job to make a vertical wedge plate. this is just a wedge that attaches to the head, and when the head is level, tilts the camera up by 30 degrees or so – you can then tilt down to get the horizon, but not much below, but you’ve increased how far you can go up. Depends how good you are with DIY, but quite simple to build and good for stuff high up!
