    Chicago Area 30 Jun - 3 July 2018

    If you go on the Skydive Chicago Fun Jumper facebook page you can ask Keith Nugent if he has anything available, he rents out trailers. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Blue strobe lights on vehicles

    In Indiana our volunteer firefighters have blue lights on their personal vehicles. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Quads on 100+ days

    I haven't done quads, but I have done back to backs all day for the MWSL meets. It's kind of fun. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    cessna 182 interior help

    It will never come out, and it's some pretty tough stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVyM0DtApkQ "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Sony X3000 action cam with BOSS!

    You shouldn't side mount anything anyways, it's bad for your health. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Sony a6300

    I just found out about the A5100/A6000 overheating problem in video mode. Apparently they can only shoot video for 5-10 minutes at a time. Bummer. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Sony a6300

    I was already planning on switching to Sony mirrorless for video this year. Looks like I'll be getting at least one A6300. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane. My momma said I could be anything I wanted when I grew up, so I became an a$$hole.

    Canon T3I vs Nikon

    I bet that A6000 with a GoPro would be awesome for work and team jumps. Heck you could even through a speedlite on and be lighter than a Canon/Sony CX set up.

    Still camera lens for night glow photos?

    Oh and start early, there will probably be a very short window of time when you can balance the glow of the balloon with the light level of the sky. I run into that all the time when shooting at near dark, maybe a couple minutes where every thing is perfect. "If it wasn't easy stupid people couldn't do it", Duane.

    I have better equipment now, but it's not necessary. A crappy tripod will work, just put some weights on it. I often use barbell weights or those ankle weights you find at the Salvation Army. You could even use a gallon jug full of water in a pinch. Put your camera in mirror lock up mode, and use either the 2 second timer, or a remote switch, so you aren't touching the camera when it shoots.

    This is with my Canon Rebel T1i, not sure which lens, but probably my Canon 10-22 since it was shot at 22mm. Shutter speed .8 seconds Aperture at f4.5 ISO 200 Shot at 9:00pm on July 7th, 2012.
