Re: [billvon] Go Pro- Is it a Camera or not?

In reply to:
Had a guy with about 300 jumps on the plane last week doing a solo tracking practice dive. He had a camera on with a .3 lens. Perhaps he was going to film his feet.

To play devil's advocate... my first camera jump was a solo wingsuit jump with a .3 lens on my video camera. I had about 400 jumps.

However, back on the other side of the argument: on that same jump I chased a cloud too far (for pretty footage) and almost broke my ankle landing off near lots of tall trees with nasty wind shear.

If you have a new camera setup that you intend to jump with people eventually, I do think it is a good idea to jump it solo first. But it is still a distraction, even then.
