    Yes Sue,
    I will be a member of the french team .
  • Some help can be provided with the use of cameras .
    If can install CHDK on Canon compact cameras, I can program a SD card of 4Go if you furnish one .
  • There will be a new subject on the International Dieppe kite festival .
    Some kite aerial pictures realized with a camera used glass plate 4,5x6cm were found last May .
    A french kaper realized them on a seaside certainly on the years after the 2nd world war .
    We can see a car Citroën 2CV , they were built at the end of the year 1948. It helped to find a good time precision .
    On one of the glass plate we can see the kite photographer .
    We found a german Bebe ICA camera working with a Tessar Zeiss lens and a speed of 1/250s !
    It's own weight is 451gr .
    Some experiments will be done to replace the glass plate with a paper sheet to make it working again .

    One exhibition will be done on the Kite Aerial Tent of the kite festival .

  • Hi all
    Unfortunately I won't be going to Dieppe kite festival this year.
    I am flying to Peru at the end of the festival week so there is no time for a visit to Dieppe
    I will really miss being there as I have been to every festival since 1998!

  • Sue,
    It is not really a problem, your travel to Peru is too a good choice, we saw you with your friend on the kite festival of Berck this year . You will discover new landscapes, some of them are fantastic .We wish you a very good travel in South America where Peru is a favorite destination to discover the world.
    Friendly .
    José .
  • Thank you José
