It’s kind of funny ... no sooner does technology allow high-definition video cameras to be shrunk to the size of a smartphone, than people start adding stabilizing rigs – essentially making the cameras bigger – in order to smooth out the shakes in hand-held footage. One of the latest such devices is the Circle Thing, which takes a unique approach to steadying up small video cameras.
SEBASTIAN, FLORIDA: Skyaker Miles Daisher Skyaking in Freefall in Sebastian, Florida.
Danger man Miles Daisher casts a bizarre image paddling across the sky - 13,000 feet up in a KAYAK. The daredevil has turned extreme sport skydiving on its head after deciding to jump out of a plane in equipment normally used only in water - giving birth to 'skyaking'. His barmy spin on the risky hobby means anyone looking up will draw a blank when they ask: "Is it a bird? Is it a plane?" But the answer will become clear when crazy Miles swoops in at 50mph and lands on the water in spectacular fashion. The unbelievable antics of the 40-year-old, from Twin Falls, Idaho, are set to explode onto the worldwide silver screen in a sensational new 3D film on skydiving, BASE jumping, wingsuit flying and skyaking.
