  1. Cozy little dropzone with red cottages as facilities. We jump from an Airvan GA8 which we bought in 2013. It has space for 8 jumpers and takes 20 minutes to 13000 feet. We have a beautiful view over lake Vättern and a few times a year we do beach landings at beach Varamon (the beach is 5km long). Everyone is welcome for tandem jumps. To be able to do sport jumping a valid parachuting license with the FAI logotype is required to jump at this dropzone, ie FAI sporting license.
  2. Thanks for your reply mccordia. I think what I'm looking for is a basic allround setting with everything in focus. A point and shoot setting. It is pretty easy to use the camera on the ground since I have the opportunity to make all kinds of adjustments whenever I want but I'm having problem to figure out good allround setting for skydiving. I've done some attempts with manual settings and manual focus but without success, most pictures out of focus. So I've changed to automatic settings, sport mode and automatic focus. I'm fine with that and the images. However, the problem is that the autofocus is so slow so in the exit I kind of only have one opportunity to take the exit shot. :( Anyone with suggestions? I really like the size of the camera and the bite switch camera hack took some time to make so it would be a shame to buy another camera now. :)
  3. Hi, If you are are using the Sony Alpha Nex-5R for still images while skydiving what settings are you using? Would be interesting to know. I am not sure what settings I will use yet. Do you have any definitly do and definitly dont settings? Thanks!
