This book may seem horribly out of date since it spends most of the time describing how to adapt compact film cameras for flight. This includes building large payload bays and methods of mechanically and/or electrically triggering the cameras.

It's being re-issued because while the actual payloads being lofted are obsolete, the techniques of building sturdy payload bays for comparatively large, heavy instruments and methods of mechanically and/or electrically triggering them is still relevant. In fact, even more so with the recent rise of university-level programs using rocketry as a teaching tool
