camera people DO have the benefit of being able to Pull...at a greater altitude than most.
Tandem or AFF.. especially if late in the exit order, we'll be opening higher, just to "get back", and once the dive is over...i'm deploying...
i learned a long time ago that trading altitude for 3 or 4 or 5 more seconds of freefall isn't sensible.
Fun jumps. with camera....?? take the center, and especially on dives where everyone is IN... i.e. there are No Unknowns... ( where the heck IS everyone? ) and Pull. Only exception... when CERTAIN groups of 4 way.... in their exhuberence BUST seperation alt... THEN i Still PULL around 3 grand and i give them some well meaning GRIEF,, when we land.
Jav PD Spectre top mount. video and still,,,,, side by side. 3,237 jumps. maybe 1,500 with cameras.

Nearly 12,000 jumps. More than 2500 video. No RSL for the first 13 years. Added a Skyhook RSL this year on the new rig. Decided that I was going to add an RSL so I set a good example for new skydivers. I've trained 100's of students and feel that when they asked about gear choices I need to be "walking the talk" a bit more. It just happened that I purchased a Javelin this year so the SkyHook became an option. Very happy with it. :-)
