The ultimate speed festival, Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016!

The Goodwood estate has a long history with British racing. When Lord March took over the property in 1990, he wanted to bring back to life historic racing at the Goodwood Circuit. But without the necessary permits, he had to come up with something else. So in 1993, Lord March invited a small selection of historic vehicles to his property, to race a Hill climb. First year starting with 25.000 visitors. But in the following years hosted tens of thousands, and in these days up to 150.000 over the 4 festival days. (Tickets are limited to maximum 150.000)

Giving you just a small sense of what this festival is all about is really hard, but i will try. Please start this video, and let it roll when reading and scrolling on. (Not phone/tablet friendly). Motorsport is also very much about the noise these fantastic machines make!

The Hill climb with it’s gorgeous British surroundings makes for some great framing. Like here, framing in the iconic BMW March 86G .

_DSF9314 small

Goodwood Festival of Speed shows of a wide range of vehicles. Both in eras and types of vehicles. Some of these old machines are so awesome, with engine displacements leaving every 21 century machines in envy. Notice also the chain drive!

_DSF9188 small

There are rarely any fancy racing suits at Goodwood. Many tries to recreate the era of their vehicle. All the marshals has “retro” looking clothing. No fancy racing barriers either, just hay bales firmly hold together with wood logs.

The theme for 2016 was James Hunt, celebrating 40 years since winning the Formula 1 World Championship. And they didn’t spare on the amount of previously “Hunt the Shunt” vehicles. For instance like James Hunt’s McLaren M26 below.

_DSF9369 small

James Hunts sons, Tom Hunt and Freddie Hunt (Euro NASCAR racer) was also present. Look them up, they are very much alike their father!

Back to the Hill climb, here with the Renault Nervasport, rebuilt by Renault Classic. In 1934, after 48 hours, 3 minutes and 14 seconds of racing, the Nervasport crossed the finish line after beating nine international records and three world records including a record: 8037 km in 48 hours (167.445 km/h average). That’s not bad considering it was in 1934!

Airshow at Kjeller airport (“Flydagen”)

What better activity could you do on a sunny summers day with the kids, than to go watch some airplane action. At Kjeller airport, a small airport just outside Oslo, there’s an annual airshow. The entrance is free, and there’s a bunch of vintage airplanes both in air and on the ground. The pilots perform some nerve-wracking maneuvers, definitely going to send chills down your spine. Several times i was sure that the stunt was going to end straight into the ground, just to se that everything was under total control. There is a lot of plain enthusiasts in Norway, and a lot of extremely high polished vintage airplanes. Like for instance this Supermarine Spitfire MK XVI.

_KKM0331 small

_KKM0335 small

The airshow started of with some model airplanes.
And probably not the in the size that you had as a kid…..these things are humongous!

_KKM0385 small

This Douglas DC-3 Dakota is one of my favorites. Look at those curves and the impeccable shine. Check out their website over at www.dakotanorway.no. If you become a member, you can get rides for a fair price! (Yes please, anyone… my birthday is coming up soon🙂 )

KKM0648 small

A good thing to have in mind when shooting airplanes (with a camera) is to get some prop-blur. Here I’m going crazy with 1/25 second, to really get those norwegian colors to stand out. But off corse, the faster the prop turns, the faster you can have your shutter speed. 1/200-1/250 second is normally ok when they are flying, just to get some movement in the props. If the props are all frozen up because of a to fast shutter speed, the plain will look like its soon to fall down from the sky. The next time I’m to shoot airplanes i will try some crazy slow shutters like i do when shooting motorsports.

_KKM0428 small

Jet engines are always fascinating.

_KKM0347 small

A Fairchild Cornell named “Spirit of Little Norway”.
“Little Norway” was a Royal Norwegian Air Force training camp in Canada during the second World War.

_KKM0353 small

The Choppers was running all day long, giving people a ride (For a small fee🙂 )

_KKM0717 small

There was one airplane “surprise” not announced in the pre-show flyers. But at 12.05 a Lockheed P-3 Orion from the Norwegian Air Force had 2 flyovers. It’s an Norwegian surveillance airplane, and can easily be recognized with it’s long tail.

_KKM0506 small

The first flyover was with the landing gear out, but the next was with the landing gear tucked in, giving a much better look. This a definitely my favorite shot from this day, with clouds “under” the airplane, and landing gear folded in. Gives a great feel of being high up over the sky when taking the shot (But was actually standing on safe ground with my kids🙂

I’m flying high – DJI Phantom 4

After a long time indecisive whether I should invest in a quadcopter or not, i finally made the decision.
The well renowned DJI Phantom has a good reputation as en easy flown quadcopter. And with all the latest additions to the Phantom 4, I was sold. ActiveTrack, TapFly and the new Obstacle Sensing System is just a few of the new additions,  compared to the previous Phantom 3 professional.

IMG_3762 logo

Being a first time quadcopter pilot, i was in doubt on how i should approach  the learning curve for these machines.  I really didn’t want to crash a 1600$ quadcopter on the first takeoff😦

But after a long time searching and asking experienced people, i skipped the long road going with smaller and cheaper quadcopters before buying what i really wanted, the Phantom 4.

IMG_3763

My main target when taking a decision was an easy and safe operated drone, with great video capability, and decent photo quality. And i must say, so far, the targets have been met with a great margin. The 4K video is just astonishing, and with some practicing in video editing software, i hope i can do the video quality justice some time in the future. The photo quality is fine, but can in no way be compared to my 36 Mpix full frame DSLR. But shooting RAW, it can take some nice shots. The advantage is that it can take shots from angles i newer could imagine before🙂

IMG_3764

The new Obstacle Sensing System has 2 new sensors in the forward direction, in addition to the 4 sensors underneath the quadcopter. There are 2 downwards and 2 forward facing camera sensors. In addition there are 2 downward facing ultrasonic sensors. The 2 new sensors will try to prevent a collision when flying forwards. In addition the Phantom has GPS and GLONASS making for some extremely precise hovering. When releasing the sticks in P (position) mode, the quadcopter stays extremely still, even in some wind. But remember that there is no sensors when going sideways, backwards or if flying under something!
The Phantom also has a RTH (Return To Home) function by a press of a button. The Phantom records the spot where taking off and will return to this spot. RTH will also automatically be initiated if the remote controller and quadcopter looses contact. The Home point can also be set manually under flight. This is great if you are on a not so stationary landing spot, as in a boat🙂 The Phantom is a real joy to fly, and it’s very fast if you enter the Sport mode (72 km/h).

IMG_3770 logo

The Phantom 4 has an improved battery capacity, and can fly up to 28 minutes (5,350 mAh, 15.2v). This of course depends on the use. But the DJI Go app has a great overview of the battery, even in flight. Battery capacity, total and individual cell voltage and battery temperature are easily accessible in the app.

IMG_3772 logo

The propellers have a quick release function, making the time to prepare the drone for flight very short!

IMG_3773 logo

The DJI camera is equipped with a 1/2.3″ sensor, and a fixed f2,8 lens. The lens has good optical corrections, making sure your horizon in not curved like a ball. That was one of my selling point for the Phantom 4 compared to earlier model’s. But as it’s a fixed aperture lens, remember to get ND filters to achieve proper exposure. Remember that your shutter speed should ideally be double the frame rate!

The following video recording modes are available:

UHD:     4096×2160 (4K) 24 / 25p

                3840×2160 (4K) 24 / 25 / 30p

                2704×1520 (2.7K) 24 / 25 / 30p

FHD:    1920×1080 24 / 25 / 30 / 48 / 50 / 60 / 120p

 HD:      1280×720 24 / 25 / 30 / 48 / 50 / 60p

IMG_3774 logo

The camera gimbal ensures that your shots are as stable as it gets. Its amazing what a small gizmo like this can achieve in steadying your shots.

The new ActiveTrack function, lets you select an object on the screen (aka your phone or tablet) and it will, actively follow your object. You can go up, down, or fly around the subject even when its moving, and the camera always has the object in the center of the camera. This ensures more smooth movements than you probably could achieve yourself.

The Tap Fly function lets you tap on a point on the screen, and the Phantom will fly there.IMG_3771 copy

Ok, so now to some video examples of what you can expect regarding video quality. Bare in mind that I’m a novice both to filming, flying and editing!🙂

First of, here’s are a short video of my first test flight. Nothing amazing in relation to content, but gives you an idea of the video quality. The video have been color graded, so the colors are not as from camera. The video have been edited in Final Cut Pro X. Please select 4K from the YouTube adjustments after starting the video

Here is a quick & dirty test with handholding the Phantom. Shot in 120 fps. Please select 1080 quality!

Short video from my first test going up to 110 meters (The law regulates maximum flight hight to 120 meter). You can easily set the maximum flight hight in the DJI Go app. Remember to select 4K !!

I do NOT take assignments with quadcopter, shooting nor video or stills. The regulations are strict in Norway as it comes to flying a quadcopter for commercial use.

As of now this is strictly a hobby project, and I will se how it evolves before I decide to apply for a RO 1 approval from the Civil Aviation Authority.

But my conclusion regarding the Phantom 4, is that it is both a fantastic flying camera, and a great flying machine. Even for a novice like me. Please feel free to comment, ask questions, or share your own experiences in the comments!

Cheers, and fly high! (But seriously, don’t drink and fly)🙂

Behind the scene, making of The Carburetors music video “”LORDS OF THUNDER” (feat. Shagrath)

_KKM8668-Edit small

Fast Forward Rock’n’Roll,  45 degrees celsius, 99,9% air humidity, and so many spotlights the power consumption could make a small village go dark. That’s what met me when entering the scene of the Carburetors shooting their new video.

_DSF8474-Edit small

I was asked to shoot some behind the scene shots from the video Lords of thunder. This is one of the new songs from their newly released album Laughing in the face of death. The album is just released, and many have been waiting in anticipation for their new album for a long time now. It’s been awhile since Rock’n’Roll Forever, which was their previous album, released in 2008.

Producer Christian Falch (Gammaglimt As) and the rest of the team shot and put together an awesome end product in this video. I don’t think most people know how much planning, how many GB of raw material, and how much pre-production work that is put into something as “small” as a tree and a half minute video! This wouldn’t be possible without experienced and knowledgeable people.

_DSF8468-Edit small

They shot with a RED 4K camera coupled with a Fujinon 19-90 T2.9. The RED camera shoots in ultra-high definition (3840 x 2160), and the cost is like a nice Porsche.

_DSF8459-Edit small

One big surprise for many was that Shagrath was performing with the Carburetors in this song, and that’s a really cool addition to this video. Shagrath (Stian Thoresen) is probably best known from the internationally successful Dimmu Borgir. Eddie Guz and Shagrath previously played together in Chrome division where Eddie was the vocalist and Shagrath was playing guitar, so they’re no strangers.

A motorsport photographers dream, shooting at the green hell, NÜRBURGRING (VLN #10)

_KKM0148 small

Being a car enthusiast and motorsport photographer, what better combo could you ask for than the legendary Nürburgring. The unusually steep hills, multiple s-curves and the scenery make this track a dream to shoot. I love including the track, curves and curbs in my shots, trying to capture some pleasing compositions. Adding a big diversity of cars, including some of the rarest and fastest car out there doesn’t hurt the shooting experience either🙂

FullSizeRender-Edit small II

I was invited by the Møller Bil Motorsport team as their guest. A part of this team’s purpose is to give people a close up and personal racing experience at one of, if not the greatest track on earth. Well as close as you can get without racing yourself. Møller bil, and the other sponsors bring guests, and there’s a handful of dedicated guides showing you around the track, pit area and the team camp. Møller bil is a big car dealership located in Norway, but also has dealers in Sweden and in the Baltic states. A big bonus, that’s normally not a part of the guiding, was that we got to drive around the track between the qualification and the race. Not in a race car though, but either way, it’s cool to see the track in real life in a slow pace, including most of the GP track. The track is so much steeper than the impression you get from playing games and watching videos from the ring.

This shot is from the training on Friday, and the Møller Bil Motorsports TT  in the s-turns in Brünnchen.

_KKM9051 small

VLN is short for Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nürburgring, and translates into something like “Association of Nürburgring Endurance Cup Organizers”. Møller Bil Motorsport races in the SP3T class. This is a special class with turbocharged engines up to 2.0 liter (over 1620cc up to 2000 cc). Møllers TT has a four-cylinder engine, with an output off approximately 350hp/450 Nm. The car is built by Raeder Motorsport, and they also have the technical responsibility for the car between races. At the races there are 3 permanent staff mechanics from Møller Bil dealers in Norway, consisting of Ted Trønnes, Anders Lindstad and Stian Skårsmoen. At every race there are also 4 guest mechanics from the Møller Bil dealers. John Skjalg Lund is also a part of the pit crew, and Leif Erik Vik is the technical chef.

_KKM9256 small

_KKM9829 small

There were only 4 cars starting in the SP3T class in this race. The TT below, car #303 from the LMS Engineering team, is the one car that gave the Møller team the toughest competition in this race. The 2 other vehicles did not complete the race unfortunately (#335 Seat Leon Cup Racer & #332 Audi TTS)

_KKM9670 Small

_KKM9806 small

The LMS Engineering teams TT runs, in opposition to all the other cars in the SP3T class, on a 5-cylinder engine. They stripped a 2,5L straight 5 cyl. engine from an Audi, made a custom crankshaft and got the displacement under 2L (82.5 mm bore x 74.5 mm stroke). The engine was then not within the “close-to-production engine” according to the regulations, and they had to mount a 38mm restrictor, and limit the charge pressure to 1,4 bar. But is running a 5 cylinder engine against 4 cylinders fair? The LMS TT states they have close to 400 hp according to their sales add, and the 4 cylinder vehicles are limited to a lower figure than this. Well, I’m not to judge in this matter, as my knowledge is to limited, but the SP3T class have shrunk drastically in the numbers of cars attending after the LMS team entered with this car…… And that’s a pity!
But either way, the Møller Bil team gave them a real fight, an all in all it didn’t end so bad😉

_KKM9318 small

Here is the Lexus RC F GT3 from Farnbacher Racing, racing in the SPX prototype class. It’s based on the Lexus RC F sports coupe but is wider, lower and weighs just 1250kg. They’ve tucked a 5 liter V8 engine in there, boosting 540 hp. Looks pretty awesome if you ask me!

The 10’th VLN race, the last race for the season, was delayed for 2 hours because of fog. The qualifying was supposing to start at 08.30, but was also held off for several hours because of massive fog at the higher sections of the rack. At the end of the race, the fog again got thicker and thicker, leading to several cars off the track and the race was eventually red flagged. The below picture is from the highest point at the track, Hohe Acht.

The drivers of the Møller Bil Motorsports team is Håkon Schjærin (Race chef), Atle Gulbrandsen and Kenneth Østvold. They are all experienced race rivers from Norway. Håkon Schjærin has been racing the Nürburgring since the mid 90’s, so he’s no rookie at this track. Atle has been attending the VLN since 2005, and have loads of racing experience from Norway and in the States. His voice is also familiar to most of you from Norway, as he is a TV commentator for Viasat. Kenneth Østvold is well known as one of Norway’s best go-cart drivers, and has been a part of the team since 2011.

Møller bil made a very late pit stop when the end of the race was closing in. There was estimated 3 laps left, and they drove out of the pit just when the team LMS TT was passing. They made a bold tire choice, and is was exiting to watch the monitor of the 2 cars flying around the track. The race was, like mentioned earlier, red flagged, but it would have been fun to se how it would end if the race had been driven to its end.

If you have access, be sure to take a look at the race camp behind the pit area. There’s millions of dollars in awesome trailers, tires and racing stuff. And you are sure to see some extraordinary rare vehicles, like I did with this Gemballa Avalanche. If you had an interest in Porsches in the 80 and 90, you maybe remember some crazy Gemballa Porsche builds back then?

After the race was flagged red, there was a tense atmosphere in the team tent, as to what the final result would be.  But after a long wait, the final result was 1. Place to the Møller Bil Motorsports team. This gave the Møller team a total of two first places and 2 second places in this season. They only attend at 6 of the 10 races every season, so that’s not a bad total, considering they also had one gearbox breakdown.
