    video camera for big ways

    Are you talking about a 19mm for stills? What challenges are you having with it? I think that you are going to find the 30mm and the 50mm too tight unless there’s a lot of separation between you and the formation. Especially if you’re trying to get exit shots. For the moment, I’m still using my sony cx100 it works okay, I’m pairing it with the canon 5d mark iii and I’m going to start with a 24mm prime lens and see how it does. I’m also looking at the sony X-3000, I’ve heard good things about it and the price isn’t bad, I’m just not sure about it’s suitability for shooting big way stuff. I suspect it will do fine but just not sure

    camera mounts

    Hey guys the folks at really right stuff are a little confused about using their L plate on a helmet. I’m not having much luck finding a base quick disconnect plate that mounts to the helmet. Any help you can give as far as a part number or anything would be really appreciated!
  4. It depends on the DZ. There are a few different thoughts about exit order. I always ask when getting a DZ briefing before manifesting. But have no fear, there will always be someone in the boarding area to tell you how to do it......

    video camera for big ways

    What camera and wide angle lens (if any) are you using for big ways? Just curious.... Also, if you're using a FF still, what lens are you using and does it match the field of view of your video camera??

    Hey man thanks for your help. How are you actually mounting the L bracket to the helmet? It looks like you have some kind of base under the L bracket thats attached to the helmet. I'm assuming you bought separate but I can't find anything like it on the RRS site. Thanks again.

    Interested in getting into Wing Suit flying

    I've done a few wing suit jumps back when I was in Palatka with Chuck Blue and really liked it. I'm interested in getting more coaching and possibly buying a suit but SO much has changed about wing suits since I made my first jumps... I'm in Cali and jump at skydive California what kind of training is there? Are their demo suits available so I can see if this is something I really want before spending a bunch of money on a suit. I'm 6'3 and weigh almost 240 is it possible to find a suit to demo that would fit? Any advice would be welcome

    Skydive California

    I checked out skydive California a few years ago when I first moved to California and had a good time. I moved away but recently moved back and now it's my home DZ. I'm still getting to know people but everyone has been really friendly. The DZ management cares a lot about safety and it shows. I highly recommend this place.

    Can I see photos of your set up? Just checked out RRS and it looks like exactly what I want! Thanks!

    camera mounts

    So I'm getting ready to mount my camera on my helmet and looking for mounts. I have a canon 5D Mark III. I'm mounting it to a bonehead flattop pro. Looking for both vertical mounts. What's everyone using?? Thanks

    Sony a 5100 and GoPro 5

    I'd personally go with the 16 or the 20. A 50mm lens probably isn't the best for tandems it's a little tight for the distance you should be to get good video and probably not going to match well with the video lens. I used a 20mm lens when I shot tandem video and that seemed to work well for me. Try whatever lens you have, see how they match up and how well they frame your subject. I think you'll be happy with the 16 or the 20mm
  12. I'd love to know that the TI had to say about this incident.

    Solar eclipse and cameras

    It will fry the sensor in a digital camera if you don't have the correct filter on your camera. It's not work the risk to your gear if you don't have the right tools
  14. Man it's hard to believe this boogie has been running for 14 years! Great job keeping the loads cranking Chris.

    DeLand Monday jumpers?

    Ryan, what time do you go on Mondays? I can get out there for a couple either first thing in the morning or for an even jump. Any other days you can go? Chuck Bryan
