Hey Alex…here’s a little more camera related information for you. We slow the cameras down to a low continuous motor drive setting and we shoot jpegs. Also the cameras are at their normal resolution but the combination of drive speed and jpegs really makes the buffer issue moot.

And remember unless we have totally set up the threshold for the sound trigers wrong the earliest they fire is at main engine ignite. Which from that point to the shuttle lifting off and being out of the frame is only ten or fifteen seconds.

Thanks for the question,

Scott

He reported these pics came from NA and were back out to clients within 1 minute and 45 seconds! Awesome. No wonder Reuters is kicking even the homegrown services in turnaround. Informative video!

Also, were the cameras set to fire at their max FPS and resolution? What if the buffer filled up too early?

Thanks for posting this guys!

This is a very well done “behind the scenes look” at the Shuttle. This has to be one of the hardest shots in the world just to set up and get right, yet they take it one step further and send pictures to the their computers within seconds after lift-off. Amazing. I can’t wait to see what this crew has planned next. Keep making videos guys.
