Self-Portrait Shadow with Balloon Aerial Camera

This image is about the only good thing to come from this second test of the GoPro Camera hanging in a plastic bag on a 3 foot helium balloon.  I was able to photograph for almost an hour before the balloon just exploded in mid-air and the camera landed at my feet.  The camera was OK, but the 300 recorded images finally confirmed that the GoPro camera is just not going to give me the quality that is needed.  I need a camera with a decent lens, ability to shoot RAW, and can be manually set for all things: color balance, exposure, focus, etc.  Moving on!  (What are tests for, anyways….)
