Kodak Picture Kiosk at 21 Stories for Scouts

The Rochester Boy Scouts have an interesting way to raise money to support urban scouting. They invite the community to rappel down 21 stories in exchange for a donation. 21 Stories for Scouts is an opportunity of a lifetime and Kodak volunteered at the event to help create memories the rappellers will be able relive and share.

The rappelling took place on the First Federal Plaza building in downtown Rochester. A skilled team was brought in to provide equipment, training and logistics. In addition, Kodakers were there to take photos and print them for the participants.

We had Dan and Rich on the roof taking photos of the rappellers while Dick and Tom were on the 19th floor printing them out in a collage template.

All the way at the bottom on the street, Chuck and I manned two Kodak Picture Kiosks where we printed photos for friends and family taking shots with their cameras. We also made extra prints taken by our photographers.

By the time a rappeller got to the bottom of the building and back up to the top to return the equipment, we had photos waiting for them. How did we do this?

We have some skilled folks at Kodak and they planned out this impressive process for routing the photos wirelessly from the cameras on the roof to the Kodak Picture Kiosk on the 19th floor for the collages and then by cable 300 feet down to the two Kiosks on the ground. When these guys do a job… they go all out!

I was mighty impressed with the team’s work. I don’t think any other charity rappelling event is as well documented or has a photo system like ours!

It was a treat to be down on the street with the rappeller’s friends and family. They were all so excited for their rappellers and delighted that they could print out the photos they had taken right on the Kodak Picture Kiosk.

We saw all sorts of cameras. SLRs with huge lenses, point and shoot cameras and yes… a lot of people were taking pictures with their phones. That was no problem for us! After a quick download of the Kodak Connect mobile app, we were even able to print pictures from people’s phones!

When the rappellers came out onto the street to rejoin their group, they were even more excited about the pictures that captured their accomplishment.

Me, geared up and ready to go!

As a volunteer, I had the opportunity to rappel, and I jumped at it.

My coworkers reminded me they would be snapping away so I better keep smiling the entire way down.

The first step is the hardest, when you hang over the edge, before your first step.

Once you get going, you just settle in and work your way down!

This event was a great way to raise funds and awareness for the Boy Scouts. It’s a chance of a lifetime for the rappellers and I am glad Kodak was able to be there to help them remember it for days to come!
