    Anyone ever bought an EG Skysuit?

    I have four of them, 2 RW, 1 freefly, 1 camera suit with wings. Also 1 FF pants. Being using his suits for the last 8 years. Good price, solid construction. His website looks funny, but it's because English is not his native language. He's located in NJ just outside NY City. Yes, I will buy again from him without hesitation.

    EG Jumpsuits

    EG is a great guy. FWIW English is not his native language. So yes, he's ads are funny to read. Having said that. I do have 4 of his suits, 2 RWs, one camera, and one FF. Have been using them for years (since 2004). They are very well manufactured, and after years of use,they are still in very good shape. Never had issues with the quality. Yes, I will buy again from him without hesitation.

    DZ around Bethesda, MD

    All the DZs mentionned are good choices. I've been to all of them and liked them. FWIW, if you are around for this weekend, WP is having their Halloween boogie from Fri 29th to Sun 31st, and will be flying a CASA. Try them all if you have a chance :-) Hispas Brothers President HISPA #2,

    cx110 vs. cx150

    I have the CX110. It is the same camera. The only difference is: The CX110 does not have internal memory. The CX150 DOES have internal memory. FWIW I am happy with it Hispas Brothers President HISPA #2,

    Sony Handycam - 2010 models released ....

    You can't as there is no threads for a lens. I guess you can always "fix" one but I am too lazy for that. I jumped the SX44 and it works just fine. If it weren't for the lack of wide angle it would be just a great alternative price wise. The only SD cam that accepts a wide angle lens (30mm) is the DCR-SX83, but for the price difference (around $50 USD) you can go HD with the CX110 All in all, my wife is happy to get her camera back Hispas Brothers President HISPA #2,

    Sony Handycam - 2010 models released ....

    I bought the DCR-SX44 for my wife. Seems to have the EIS image stabiliszation. I'll jump it one of these days and see how it fares. Could be a decent alternative for shooting vid in standard def. Hispas Brothers President HISPA #2,

    rw with a camera suit?

    Rather than a camera suit, you could consider a suit with swoop chords. Basically it gives you kind of a mini wing between the mid upper arm to under the armpit when you pull on the chords. That would be a more suitable solution than a camera suit. Hispas Brothers President HISPA #2,
