  1. Mine does and she's pretty damn hot! Of course I think I'm just damn lucky that deep inside, she's a nerd too. -Trunk HYPOXIC
  2. Thank you for those links. I've been reading up on your posts on those forums and I was not aware of the quality issues between the GPS and the standard 1080P camera. I'll stay tuned and hope they fix it. -Trunk HYPOXIC
  3. Looks like it was done with an effect called twixtor edit: sorry spot already posted that... HYPOXIC
  4. Looks like they had cold feet. Weird they were readily showing it at NAB to everyone and now it sounds like they pushed back the press release. HYPOXIC
  5. Just got a sneak preview of the latest Contour camera at NAB this year It's got: * 170 deg field of view * 200 deg rotation of the lens * Bigger Lens * External Mic input * Built in Connect View * HDMI out with playback controls I think the press release is going out on Monday, but here is the inside scoop from HYPOXIC. HYPOXIC
  6. I personally use the century .55x for all outside footage. I don't do any manual zoom so a single element lens is fine for me. I wrote up a listing of good lenses a while back on my cx100 article which I feel is still true with the CX110 CX110 for skydiving HYPOXIC
  7. You can also switch to Photo mode and use the camera purely as a still camera with slightly higher resolution. If you do decide to go this route, I would suggest getting the photo kit. A lot less cables to fit into your helmet. Photo Kit HYPOXIC
  8. CX150 by a long shot: 1) Cheaper 2) Has a lens adapter 3) Don't need the screen flipped open while recording 4) Bigger lens 5) You don't need to buy a box for the CX150 vs. you need to for the TG7 just to have a wide angle lens adapter (unless you want to glue one on that is) Take a look/search for the predecessor TG1 or the US model the TG5. -Trunk HYPOXIC
  9. You can try changing your body position a tad which is easiest to learn in the tunnel. I tend to use a daffy position when I want to slow down a bunch. Check out the photo as an example... HYPOXIC
  10. I haven't shot freefall footage with it, but the stills are pretty damn tight and fast. It's simple, the macro shots are easy and quick (in comparison to my 100mm prime canon lens). You can see macro shots in my past few articles (CX160). The IR port is slow so a mod is necessary for using it in freefall. I just did this mod this weekend and must say it takes a long time and is extremely technical. Whomever is offering this for $200 is a good deal. For those people thinking about doing it, I did video the mod and wrote about it on my blog. Check it out here Adding a Wired Shutter Release Switch to a Sony NEX-5 HYPOXIC
  11. I tell you what.... The ground footage for this camera (cx130/160) is awesome! Especially low light and the active steadyshot. Check out some hand held footage taken last night in a dim arena: Team Dysfunction goes Bull Riding HYPOXIC
  12. I'll try and get some test footage with active turned on this weekend but seriously doubt it will change anything. The OIS is held into place with magnets, as we have seen with the CX7 and CX12 they break loose when the camera is hit by a vacuum caused by a burble. Here is something I wrote on the CX7 back in the day where I took apart the OIS unit. CX7 OIS It sucks that I can't jump right now, or all these tests would be easy for me to perform by myself. Right now I have to rely on other people that are training, etc. Thank you for your patience, -Trunk HYPOXIC
  13. Hellis, mind posting a frame grab from video from of this. Sorry for the misinformation then, I had a military group try it out and they said it was a no go. HYPOXIC
  14. You will get huge vignetting from it and I believe it does not focus. Some of my guys tried it and said it wouldn't work. -Trunk HYPOXIC
  15. Someone once told me a really smart simple secret about tongue and bite switches. SPIT THEM OUT before you deploy. If you get in the habit of doing this your switch will last you a hell-a-lot longer. Think about whenever you have a "bad" opening. You get 100 shots of your deployment, or the earth or whatever. I know I personally clench down hard when this happens.... Just passing some knowledge -Trunk HYPOXIC
