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 .
.Can you pls attach the pic that you are writing about? I would be so curious to see it :)
Thanks a lot in advance
There will be some technical news about our activity .
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!
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.
Thank you José
Andrea Casalboni , the historical specialist for Kite aerial photography think to go this year .
It will be a pleasure to welcome Andréa on the meadows of Dieppe !
