The great thing about what this guy has is that the shots are labeled as to what pilot, what plane, what date, etc!The dream is over, I found the motherload. Im sure ANY and EVERY thing he gets his hands on will be published!
10 years of searching concluded. He has also said Pacific stuff may be comming soon! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

its a shame the trading reels webrings and newsgroups don't exist anymore for guncam its all went commercial. most of the footage in the sample i have seen before.

he seems to charge alot too but i plan to buy these just to see if theres some i dont have. the quality does look enhanced

i have about 18hrs of real guncam from wwii

dvd
vhs
8mm and 9mm reels

www.historicaviation.com (http://www.historicaviation.com) do a search for guncam

He does charge alot, but it is a very limited audience.He does list the names of pilots etc, (actually, that should be on the gunfilm!) That is rare, I think.

Leadspitter, do you have any Wildcat, guadalcanal footage? How much Pacific footage is available? I only see the same old shots from the pacific. I know there is also Flying tiger stuff out there, Ive not seen.Ive seen some Claude shootdowns,and some Zero vs biplane (china) stuff, but not much.

Thanks

I have a descent ammount, there is alot of pf guncam available alot of its in color too. Timelife came out with a new series called The Century of Warfare 2 Volume Set wwii, which has avg pacific eastern front and western front guncam

http://www.timelife.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start?ProductSKU=19952&CategoryName=1

they have a couple volumes out and most of the footage i have never seen before.

Im definatly going to order the collection rareaviation is selling, i have seen the preview and those clips are on the dvd called "Gun camera footage of wwii". I dont know what else is on the dvds rareaviation offers. Also do a search on the net for german wwii gun camera footage theres alot of dvds and vhs in german.

Most of the reels I have are shown in the modern dvds and vhs sets and its alot better quality, The problem with the reels is its copies of a copy with the old webrings so its not the best quality but looks cool especially with the projector.

also go to www.historicaviation.com (http://www.historicaviation.com) which has alot of great quality gun camera footage in one place. I have all the dvds and tapes from this link. I just recently bought the f86 one which i didnt have before.

I been collecting gun camera footage since a kid and still enjoy watching it, for me it really makes you want to fly the sim and get an understanding of weapons effectiveness's rather then most books saying i pulled the trigger and the exploded and came apart in a thousand pieces from a short burst.

"real meaning huge fireball from the gas tank and thousands of tiny debri pieces"

I have never seen in all the guncam I own planes exploding into nothing like in fb, I think someone might have read to many books where they say exploded into a thousand pieces it even says that in the game. Im sure it happened hitting bombs but in all the footage i seen the most that happens is a wing explosion from the fuel tanks exploding shedding one wing, or the tail buring off a plane. Always 75% of the plane is intact spiraling to the ground.

Im going to order these tapes from the site and ill let you know how it is, the quality does look very clear.

Most the clips i have show a black screen with the fighter group, date plane shooting what plane down pilot etc.
