Steve's stereo aerial video screwup

So we've been waiting a couple of months for this awful hazy weather to break to fly some stereo video. Today we have some clear air and our pilot (who'll remain anonymous for now) calls and is ready to fly.

It's been a long day, but I want to do this, so we get the gear ready and I drive to the airport.

I mount the cams using some nice brackets Jesse fabricated, and zoom them to max to aim them (important for stereo) and check and recheck.

But I forget to zoom them to wide before takeoff, and the footage is no good. There is a reason you see more than one person on a film crew, but this was my mistake. I hope our pilot forgives me. Again.
