    Sony 410 - can it take a 64Gb card

    Hi, I have a Sony 410 with a 32Gb memory card. Does anyone know if it will take a 64gb card? The official website simply does not say. Thanks....
  4. Thanks. I tried to find it online - do you know anywhere I can find that?
  5. Hi there, I am trying to trace a very old (maybe 1960's) skydiving movie where there is a sequence of multiple parachutes opening one after another, but all from one skydiving system. I thought it might be the Gypsy Moths, but now I cannot find that sequence anywhere online. Can anyone remember? Thanks ...
  6. Well its official, a new UK record of 78 teams have registered for the UK Nationals in 4way & VFS. Not bad for a small island. Anyway, you can read news, scores and see some interviews and photos here - http://www.skydivingchampionships.com/Nationals.htm For those that do not know, this competition is being held at Skydive Hibaldstow which is near to the cities of Leeds and Hull.

    Centro Gaucho de Paraquedismo

    This is a fantastic little dropzone located just over 1hr from Porto Alegre in Southern Brazil. Whilst they only have a small aircraft, they are very friendly. When I visited the dropzone, I was able to borrow some nice gear. They operate most weekends (but not every one). Send them an email if you plan on visiting to ensure they are open. The landing area is big, they have evening parties and BBQ's, there is a cafeteria as well. If you are looking for a few simple jumps, you will have a ball.

    Panasonic HDC-SD10 for skydiving

    I understand that OIS corrects for handshake, but how does that affect skydiving? I specialise in filming 4-way by the way.

    Panasonic HDC-SD10 for skydiving

    I have just been given a Panasonic HDC-SD10. So, has anyone used this camera for skydiving? One of the things which seems to be a pain is that the power button placement is inside the side-screen making it hard to switch on if it is on your helmet. Secondly, is there an alternative to the LANC socket for use with a CamEye? Cheers...
