Thoughts on Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s Wedding

BBC America’s HD coverage of today’s wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton is impressive. The detail is amazing and the cinematography is very smart. In part, the terrific shots are made possible by an insane number of HD cameras on remote gimbals. What make and model cameras did they use?

Say what you will about royalty, but this is a very nice wedding. However, I prefer the homespun flavor of Y’s and my wedding presided by the Rev. Seth Johnson. I don’t know how Y and I would have handled thousands of adoring subjects cheering us on!

Also, which major event today has more total support staff: the Royal Wedding or the Space Shuttle Endeavour launch?
