Question:How much can one 36" balloon lift?

I've just attached a 60 gram camera (one of these GoPro alternatives) to a single 36" mylar balloon, and it lifted -- not strongly, so it wouldn't hold up in much wind, but not bad either for a calm day.

This question gets a bit complicated, right? Like, how windy is it? How much does the string weigh?

How have you approached answering this question?
