Group DescriptionThe KAP group is devoted to pictures taken from cameras suspended from a kite line. Membership to this group no longer requires that you have at least one KAP photo on your personal page, but we will only accept images into the pool that have been taken in this way.
PLEASE TAG ALL IMAGES POSTED TO THE POOL WITH THE WORD "KAP"
For those who are interested in KAP who don't have photos to share, we recommend visiting Cris Benton’s KAP discussion forum. Because the KAP community is relatively small and not everyone is a member of Flickr, we try to direct all discussions to that forum rather than the Flickr group.
The other KAP Resources listed at the bottom of this page hold a host of useful information for the beginner. Feel free to go to my profile and Flickr mail me if you need any further assistance.
Flickr KAP group homepage - A new page combining all the KAP groups' pools, easy to customise and explore. A recommended homepage candidate.
Simon Harbord's superb showcase group - the best of many of our KAPers' portfolios.
Visit the separate equipment groups as well as the "About KAP" group, for everything else (please note that you should post all discussions here to keep things simple):
THE ALL NEW KAP CAMERAS GROUP - All cameras are not born equal, here are those with a higher calling.
Rigs - Give your camera a home and then fly it.
Kites - Anti-grav for your rig, an image pool of KAP kites.
Bits - Paraphernalia you can't be without.
About KAP - Other photos related to KAP.
Recommended KAP-friendly threads for anyone to contribute to, from beginners to Gurus are:
Self portraits - here's looking at you
Watch for shadows - the darker side, a perfect KAP topic
Desktop KAP wallpaper - we've all captured them, intentionally or not
Roofs - what's on top, looking down
Show us your bag - no self-respecting KAPer goes out without one, let's 'ave a look.

Group RulesThe KAP group is devoted to pictures taken from cameras suspended from a kite line.
You don't have to have taken any images from a kite to join the group, but only images taken from a camera suspended from a kite line will be accepted into the pool.
So if you are a KAPer, then you are more than welcome to join and post KAP images to the pool. If you don't KAP, then maybe we can persuade you to give it a go.
There is already a forum devoted to KAP discussion, so if you are interested in KAP and have any questions about it, you would be best served by going to Cris Benton's KAP Forum - it's the heart of the KAP community.
- This group will count toward the photo's limit (60 for Pro members, 30 for free members)
- Members can post 4 things to the pool each day.
- Accepted content types: Photos, Images
- Accepted safety levels: Safe
