That is impressive. That chopper had to be within 10' of the front of the boat at who knows how fast.

That almost looks like it borders on dangerous. I mean all cameras have telephoto lenses. But hey I'm not in the boat so it's pretty cool.

That had to be the same pilot we had when they shot the NJPPC Atlantic City Poker Run. They were about 20 feet off my bow at times flying sideways.

With the performance of the lenses today, I just don't understand why they need to be that close.

It certainly was an experience I will not soon forget.

That was my wife's first and last poker run she ever did with me.... I think she was a bit freaked out by the wind coming off the helicopter and me doing a modest 70 mph... Oh well.

I was easy on the sticks the whole time and it just didn't matter at that point.
