KAP at Rano Kao, Easter Island.

Kite Aerial Photography. Kite : Nighthawk Paul Fishing kite – Camera : Ricoh GX 200 with Wide Angle converter. Rig : AutoKAP travel rig designed by Brooks Leffler.

 

This KAP session was one of the 31 KAP & PAP sessions we had over a week stay on Easter Island… Over 10 000 images to sort, delete and edit…

 

A panorama of 6 vertical images stitched with Autopano Pro. The lake of the crater has a diameter of over 1300 meters. Altitude is 350 meters, winds are incredibly turbulent and we had to let close to 100 meters of line before attaching the KAP rig; all in all, we had over 350 meters of line out. (over 1000 feet)
