Default AIPTEK on a balloon

I posted here a while back asking about which camera to use given I needed something that would record continuously for 4 hours (FAT32 files are limited to 32GB) without human interaction. I also needed something durable.

I ended up getting the AIPTEK Action HD based on the reviews which were quite helpful.

Here is some video from my balloon flight. I made an external battery pack to get the full 4 hours out of the camera. It was exposed to -60F and from the video, you can see the camera took a beating but was still working fine when I picked it up.

The HD video was great considering the cost of the camera and the conditions. I did not want to spend $1000 on a camera I might not get back

I might try a pen cam next time.

The balloon pops at 6 minutes.


I was not sure where this should be posted so perhaps it will get moved to the correct area.
