It's nice to see that even with $100 million budgets, that ETNZ are still sticking $30 action camera's to their spreaders

What kind of remote controls do these cameras have?. I cant see someone climbing to the spreaders to turn the things on. Even my GoPro 8 voice command feature is not reliable

They're not gopro cases, well certainly not anything recent. 

Most have a bluetooth or wifi remote switch, but nothing that would be that reliable up a mast so high. My guess is they use they have bought some cheap action camera's and made a custom reliable bluetooth switch or even have a wired switch. 

There's some camera's on the top of the rig which are link to the sail depth bands and will pulling out the sail shapes from there. This isn't a great angle for doing that, so I reckon they might just be a visual aid for the jib trimmer, real time display down in the pit to see where the leech is on the spreader. That can be down via wifi as well, but a wire would be more reliable
