Welcome at KAPshop, your webshop for aerial photography using kites (KAP), balloons (BAP) or poles (PAP).
At KAPshop we design and build systems for low level, small format aerial photography. To lift the camera we provide kites, balloons, Helikites and posts.
Next to that we sell bits and pieces for those that like to build there own system for kite aerial photography.
What ever camera you like to use, we can provide a rig for it. Basically we offer 4 different types: the tidy KAPshop rig, the light weight carbon SkyRigs rig, rigs based on Brooxes kits and rigs that don't fit in the previously mentioned groups. Next to these we can build custom rigs for special cameras or special needs.
To build rigs we use all kinds of modern materials like (sandwich) carbon and specialized tools. The CNC router was recently joined by a 3D printer.
The Rigs Parts section contains a lot of items to build a rig that fits your camera. Brooxes parts, Gentles products, radio control systems, servos, CAMremotes, AuRiCo's and much more.
In the Lifters section we offer a selection of kites that have proven qualities in stability and reliability in KAP: the Dopero and the KAP Foil designed by Ralf Beutnagel, the Peter Lynn's KAPilot, the Fled designed by Brooks Leffler and more.
Kites are not always suited to lift a camera. That's why we offer balloons and blimps, Allsopp Helikites and even a telescopic mast.
We ship all round the world. Shipping costs are calculated automatically for you at the checkout.
