Night jump video? Can't Post

We have 4th of July night jumps and I have a PC-5 (I know small aperture..but anyway).

Should I try a low light setting? or no light (bad focus), or just try to light up the subject?

Ideas?

I've seen good results, from other camera flyers, with the "Night Shot" IR feature of some Sony cameras.

I can't wait to try it out myself.

I have used the "Night Shot" capabiity on my TRV-9. It works well, but you have to be up close. Nothing spectacular (clarity) but it's still pretty cool to see yourself skydiving at night. Great for your personal video scrapbook.

Idle question - would putting a mirror in the camera's field of view reflect IR light as well as it reflects visible spectrum light?

{useful respones} a mirror purchased at a store where normal people (non laser scientists) shop will reflect IR if it reflects visible light.

{ramon's assinine respone} Depends on the type of mirror...you know some materials reflect certain wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum while allowing others to pass through.

It.s cloudy and I think the night jumps will be cancelled.
