  1. Hi,

    I have a PAL PC 1000 with a cookie 0.29 WA. Camera settings: manual focus, steadyshot off.

    I checked that the zoom was full out (wide) before the Skydive.

    Now here is my problem: Whenever I watch the video at the DZ with the camera connected directly to the TV set I don't notice anything out of the ordinary with the video. But when I come home and Import the file into Final Cut Express the video seems to be shaking in a similar way to the CX-7 shaking posted here in the forums.

    Also after capuring the video FCE gives a warning that my audio sample rate does not match the sample rate on my source tape.

    I used easy setup for FCE and chose Format: PAL Use DV:PAL.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what I can do to find out where the problem is?

    Thanks for your help!


  2. Hi, I have several questions concerning the cx-7!

    1. In your opinion: has the CX-7 proven to be reliable when you used it?

    2. Is it possible to live- edit onto DVD at the DZ?

    3. Is anyboby side mounting the cx-7, and what are your experiences?

    4. Is anybody topmounting the cx-7, and using the fixed angle for both freefly and tandems- how is that working out for you?

    5. I'm thinking about using a side mount and an xshut system, does anyone have experience with the 20° variable angle settings? Do they work out fine for filming freefly/tandems?

    Feel free to tell me to use the "search" again in case I missed something..


  3. Thanks for the answers..

    Which distance do you guys use to focus it?
    If I select manual focus and select an object around 2m away, everything in the distance gets a bit out of focus..

    Btw a friend told me an easier way to focus ithe pc 1000 .. select autofocus and let the autofocus focus on the object which is in the desired range, then while still aiming at the object switch to maual focus... and it will keep that focus...

    I'm still not too sure about the proper distance to focus on though...

    Thanks for the AE settings..

  4. Hi,

    what settings do you use for your PC1000 concerning the following items:

    1. Autofocus (if manual: which setting)
    2. Exposure
    3. Program AE
    4. Any other settings you think are important..

    Thanks for the Help..


  5. Sure, you can tell your instructor, but it won't make any difference...
    Chill out, do your AFF, hang out around the DZ a lot and you'll eventually meet some BASE jumpers.

    I've done the same and some friends took me to Lauterbrunnen last year so I could check out the exit points, watch them pack, watch them jump, party and talk about BASE. I didn't jump- I didn't want to, because I don't consider myself to be ready yet.. (and I don't think they woud've let me). I really enjoyed the trip though and learned a lot.

    Meanwhile concentrate on AFF and Skydiving- which is totally awesome!
    Jump the standard equipment, you can still start jumpin the old BASE canopy a couple of months before you know that you'll be doing a FJC..
