  1. Laszlo, Is the 24mm the same as the 24mm on my EOS? Or is it wider? -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    The Skydair office has gone from the DZ Car Park, It went at the end of the summer, I think the company still exists though because I got a Christmas E-card from them! -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  8. The CX106 has only one difference as far as I can see, and it's an increased Digital Zoom 150x instead of 120x the CX505 in the UK is listed as £999.99 CX520 is £1249.99 I've seen a video clip (Can't find it just now) that shows a CX5xx and a CX100 mounted on a board next to each other and shaken, the new CX5xx looked to be alot steadier. Maybe once they're on the market we'll be nicely surprised and find that they are suitable for jumping! -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
  9. I always used an open face when i started, but after hitting the wall a few times learning back layouts, I changed to a full face, Although I think it was only psycological, I had more confidence in the full face knowing that if I did come into contact with the wall I wouldn't break my nose! -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  13. Hello, I'm no swooper, but i've noticed people have modified their front risers by basiclly folding them in half to reduce drag so they cut through the air, but then you have this huge pocket on your leg that surely creates alot more drag than the you lose from the modified risers? Or am I wrong and is it only from the 3-ring upwards that actually has an effect? (hope that makes sense...) -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  16. I'm currently looking at buying my first Digital SLR but have always had Sony everything and just wanted to know if anyone has used one in-air? I'm looking at the DSLR-A200 I have worked for Sony previously and have used the Alpha range on the ground, but how do they do up there!? My alternative is a Canon 350D/Rebel XT Thanks! -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
  17. http://www.new.facebook.com/event.php?eid=70532930050 Go Vertical returns to Skydive Empuriabrava for more 15,000ft loads from the awesome Beech99 (KingAir) with load organising from Tim Porter and friends, be it Head-down, Head-up, Tracking, Tracing, whatever you want!! At the end of the day a video of the days jumping will be shown in the bar and on the new huge outdoor projection screen. What's more you get all this for regular jump ticket price and a small registration fee -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  19. One reason is i'm working in a Sony Centre for Christmas and I can get a good price on it.

    Sony advice

    It would've been 5 x 200w = 1000w + 200w Active Sub Your PS3 has a Digital Optical Output, which you can use to connect to an Amp, then use the HDMI to connect the PS3 to your TV (If it's a HDTV) Make sure you go to the system settings and set the screen to 1080p, default is 720. Look out for a Sony HT-SS1100, nice unit, £250 in the UK, or the HT-SF1100 for £350 which is the same but with floor standing speakers, They both have 2 optical and 1 coax input so you can link PS3, Satellite/Cable and something else. It also has a built in FM Tuner. If you have a bigger budget the STR-DA1200 7 Channel amp is very nice, £350 without speakers. Hope this helps, I've taken a winter break from Skydiving to save up my money and conveniently now work in a Sony Centre :-) -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
  21. Does anyone have any experience using this camera for Skydiving? I'm almost ready to hand over cash but worried that it has optical steady shot which may not be suitable for Skydiving, I've heard with digital camcorders that the Digital steady Shot on the HC7 is no good and the digital steady shot on the HC5 is better at keeping the image steady. Is this the same for still images with the DSLR? -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
