    Hasselblad 500ELX + Aerial Shoot = Love!

    I finally got to take my Hasselblad 500ELX for a high altitude spin this morning on a Kenyon KS-6 gyro, shot at 14-16,000 feet, Tmax-400. My wife helped me keep track of A12 backs, I brought 5 and used them all, three re-loads plus a couple rolls of 35mm in my F100 for super long shots.

    I used a pair of "Hassel-Converter" 9V battery packs and it simply rocked! I was going through a roll of film per pass on targets that used to net me at most 3 shots hand wound on my 501CM. Paired with either my 100 or 180 CF, this was a super productive flight.

    Damn I love this system!

    It's always good when you are 100 percent confident in the pictures and they turn out perfect.

    How long a shutter speed were you able to achieve with the gyro?

    Back when I was doing some oblique aerial (80s) with Koni Omega and Mamiya press cameras, I tried to not go any longer than 1/500 except when I absolutely had too. That's without any stabilizer and 150-180mm lenses.

    I try not to go below 125th when the camera is out of the wind, 500th when it is.

    Gah!!!! Now you make me want a Hassleblad!! Grrr I hardly ever need a winder for my film shooting, I like cocking the shutter by hand, but I can see needing this for an aerial flight. You're life is extraordinary...

    Now go do this with your 4x5 and I'll be truly impressed

    Whats the slowest you can handhold with the gyro when just normal hand holding, Not in a plane or anything?

    And the EL and ELM bodies are so darn cheap right now. Tempting.
