JMSDF; Several Airfields + US Marines

Post by Redskin301 »

The Japanese navy and the associated naval aviation service (Aviation Branch of the Japanese Navy) is one of the largest organizations of the Japanese armed forces. The units of the aviation service operate from the Japanese naval airfields and from the Japanese navy ships. Every pilot from the aviation service starts his career at Ozuki during the training. After the pilots have completed their elementary training at Ozuki Air Station, they continue in the specialized advanced pilot training. Some of the students will specifically train here to become a pilot on one of the transport aircraft or patrol aircraft. The other part of the students will be trained to fly with helicopters. The backbone of the Japanese maritime helicopter fleet is the Mitsubishi SH-60 Seahawk. From the beginning of the 1990s, this type entered service with the Japanese navy and since that time it is the backbone of the navy. The SH-60 Seahawk quickly turned out to be an excellent helicopter that can be used in many ways. One of the most characteristic patrol aircraft of the Japanese navy is the Lockheed P-3C Orion. This patrol aircraft plays an important role in the navy in protecting Japanese waters against intruders such as ships and submarines. The Orion has been the backbone of the patrol fleet for years and is quickly being replaced. The Kawasaki P-1 has meanwhile entered service within the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force as a replacement for the outdated P-3C Orion. On March 26, 2013, the JMSDF took delivery of the first two operational Kawasaki P-1 aircraft. The first unit to fly with the P-1 was Patron 3 at Atsugi Air Station. In Japan, the Kawasaki P-1 is currently being structurally introduced by the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force for the aviation branches. Despite attempts by the Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki Heavy Industries, no foreign customers are yet attached to the P-1. The first two units in Japan already fly with the type. The maritime airbase Iwakuni Air Station is home to the Japanese 31st Fleet Air Wing which is part of the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force. This unit flies with several versions of the P-3 Orion, the EH101 Merlin and uses the US-2 flying boat. There are also US aircraft from the US Navy and the Marines based on Iwakuni.

Great videos Alex, :respect: thanks for posting.

Do you film these with your photo camera or do you use a separate videocamera?

I almost never film but start to do it more often especially when the weather for pictures is not good enough. Yeh I know you are good at bad weather photography but its not my thing. :wink:

If you do use the same camera can you film and photograph at the same time? Does it affect the quality of your pics?

Rgds, Carl.

Hi Carl,

Thanks for the kind words. I mount my camcorder (Sony AX33) on top of my Nikon Telelens. So taking photos and filming at the same time. In the future this will change, I will buy the new Nikon Z6s + the Atomos Ninja V soon when it will enter the market later this year. Then I will start to film full time by sing my Nikon glass and filming in Log format which is like RAW in photography. Hopefully I can get some stills out of the film to use as photo at that point. Hope this answers your questions :)

That is correct. No more issues with full cards. just install the hard disk om the recorder and go for it. This device is able to record in 12 bits ProRes RAW which is an apple format of file. Since May this year it is also available for Premiere Pro to edit in, so not only limited to Final Cut Pro anymore. ProRes is a compressed raw file without the loss of info. Sounds really good haha!!!
