Unfortunately camera is a little bit shaky and needs stabilization :( and some of the tricks are performed very low at the ground and because of backlight are not quite visible.

For sure there is plenty of space for improvement.

the image stabilization in the youtube editor works surprisingly well. put the google petaflops on the job and you may like the results.

i too enjoyed the pov kite flying. thanks for posting.

I think shooting a good video is no different than tricking your kite. It takes practice practice
practice.

...and in HD nowdays a powerful video editing station ;) It was a painfully slow to edit HD video on my 5 years old home PC  :'(

I didn't liked youtube's stabilizer preview. There were strange distortions in surrounding buildings and I didn't apply it.

Since previous weekend I was thinking that I'm only one for 7.000.000 bulgarians ;) What a surprise to meet a guy in my own town on the same field !?!?! He was not as good as me  ::) but it was a nice ;) ... so you never know

Flying field ... no :( the clip is shot at one of the high schools soccer stadiums. I think a gate can be seen at one moment.

Nice video! really nice flying! I've also experimented with a couple of GoPros, the new Hero 2 has a "narrow" field-of-view HD mode with less fish-eye effect, if you mount it on a tripod and try to fly not too high, you can get some really easy-to-watch videos.  Here you can watch a sample: Revolution 1.5 Vented - 9-jun-2012 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaHlm9XC9qk#ws)

Nice clip ghfisanotti! I feel envious for the flying field  :-\

My clip is shot with 1280x720p @ 60fps 170 - because I really like to take advantage of slowing down to 25fps for analysis ::)
Looking at your clip make me think about using 1920x1080p @ 30fps 127

Bravo, Pesho!!!

Very nice video, clean tricks and smooth inputs!
But MOST IMPORTANT..... another pilot from Bulgaria!!!!!

vigli, there are very few trick pilots in both Bulgaria and Greece..... and I was thinking that I know them all.  :D
It's a really big surprise for me to see stunt kite video from Plovdiv and I'm really happy about that!
I think we should try to build something like a Balkan Trick Community (BTC).... to know/support each other, share knowledge, make events and have fun!

kostaaa,
Go Kiting!
