    same question as Daveman, what size is the vapor?
  2. when i was using a canon, i used a speedlight 270ex ii the recharge with good batteries was good enough to get the job done. now with the sony i havent shot "sunset" loads, i would probably just bump the iso.
  3. Curious about this myself. My sigma 19mm isn't cutting it for anything other than 4way. Will be trying a 30mm and 50mm next time out.
  4. yeah it was an add on option to the camera jacket. Never see them in use, but was wondering if anybody actually used them. Yeah Its a jacket for now, my old suits are tearing apart after 10+ years of pretty hard use. Plan is to get the "C" wing.
  5. Finally looking to replace my 10+ year old camera jacket and suit. Decided on sticking with Tony suits as this is what I am used too. I would love to start sit flying tandem videos so the question is should I have them add the sit fly wing on the back? Never seen them in use so i was wondering if anybody had any experience with them? mostly used for tandems and fun jumping, but would not be surprised to find myself shooting FS again at some point.
  6. I have 2 sony az-1 mounted side by side for and cam using a pivot pad hand cam. works perfectly and can be rotated for user's best angle
  7. try slowing the shutter speed of the camera to get rid of the ripple. I use a neutral density filter in front of the lens. If it is "shutter roll" the filter will fix it.
  8. weight is a factor. padding = weight. heavy object on head plus hard opening = no fun. Plus SNELL and DOT testing isn't cheap.
  9. This is not being marketed as an action camera. The lack of image stabilization is an indicator. IMO this is designed to be mounted to something very stable with limited space available, maybe 360 video or specialty "matrix" type shots.
  10. https://gethypoxic.com/blogs/technical/sony-a6000-skydiving-guide The advice in this article should answer a lot of your questions
  11. 2nd this using trunks guide improved the quality of my photos by leaps and bounds.
  12. quads are definitely about down time management. The prep work must be maximized. 2 years of quads at SDC, definitely made me sweat off a few pounds.
  13. I have used blow switches in the past, jumping from 18k all day can leave me a little winded blowing all the time. besides my wife would prefer I practice my tongue switch not a blow switch
  14. Ah, I wasn't. Didn't realise that's what you meant. Thought you meant the fixed right angle routing of the cable once it comes out your mouth. The right angle actual switch so it is like a T but on its side? If that's the case, that's not going to happen. That's Conceptus' design. I'm afraid if that's what you want, as Conceptus already make it, use a Conceptus! Sorry. nah my sky switch works too well for me to switch back
  15. I was referring right angle (vertical) at the switch like a conceptus tongue switch
