ABC, Bringing Back A Classic

I'm not sure about you, but I love unique camera shots.  Everything from the tip of the nose cone, to the drivers feet on a road or street course.  Camera shots are a make or break for the broadcast of any sports event, and for the Indianapolis 500, ABC is bringing back a classic.  In addition to the 11 air-intake mounted On-Board Cameras, listed below:
  • #3 Helio Castroneves
  • #4 Dan Wheldon
  • #7 Danica Patrick
  • #9 Scott Dixon
  • #10 Dan Wheldon
  • #11 Tony Kanaan
  • #26 Marco Andretti
  • #30 Graham Rahal
  • #33 Bruno Junqueira
  • #37 Ryan Hunter-Reay
  • #43 John Andretti
In 2010 they'll be bringing back the Face Cam.  You know, the fantastic shot where the camera is mounted in the cockpit, facing rearward toward the drivers helmet.  Those cams will include:
  • #7 Danica Patrick
  • #11 Tony Kanaan
  • #30 Graham Rahal
In addition to the on-boards and face cams, ABC has also equipped a few pit members with a Crew Cam.  Mounted on the team member's helmet, the lipstick camera captures all the action from the best seat in the house.  Those cams include:
  • #7 Danica Patrick - Crew Chief - Dave Shipley
  • #9 Scott Dixon - Crew Chief - Ricky Davis
  • #20 Ed Carpenter - Sign Board - Rob Sabatini
