Thanks, Si! i have flown (and crashed) many of the Estes Astrocams myself. I kept putting them on bigger rockets, with bigger motors, but the lengthy ejection delay needed to trigger the shutter while the camera was pointing downwards, was very hard on the recovery system.

Nowadays I'm using 35mm Olympus pocket cameras, but film is becoming an outdated and endangered species these days. I should probably switch to digital, but then I'd have to invest in several new cameras, build new payload capsules, etc. Don't know if I want to go to that much trouble for what is now a secondary hobby.
