  1. I'm a member of a club in Denmark who is looking for a freefall tube with our sponser picture and name. Who could wee contact to have one made? European is preferred but not mandatory Regards Daniel
  2. I made the adapter from a angle av/d plug from a underwater-housing (spk hcb). A cheap way to make a adapter is to buy an av cable from china and split it up, but soldering is a must.
  3. I have tested the CX100 together with cameye II trough a lanc adapter, at it works perfect, but only when the "turn on by lcd" is disable. Have read it somewhere i this thread that it would not work. I know that the cameye don´t show the error codes for low bat/mem, but don´t see much problem in that.
  4. To bad they don´t send oversea
  5. You can make you´r own plug. I made 2 until now using cheap chinese av cables, Just split it apart, dip the connector (metal end) in candle wax a couple of times, and cast it with Polyester /Epoxy resin. When the resin is hard, use saw and file to form the plug, and use a heat gun and compressed air to get the candle wax out of the connector.
  6. Done that with a cx6 + spk hcb, and that's not a trill to jump with
  7. Now i have tested the underwater housing (HCB), and for me it looks like the solution is to stop the burble form getting in. Jumped this monster box 2 times, but at the first jump, something hit the start/stop button on the HCB, so nothing. It was a protec helmet with a camera mount, and the box was tightend in the bottom with the screw and velcro around.The CX6 was fastened in the box with a modified original camera plate(HCB not compatible with CX6), and it could shake a bit. The result is not the best, but far better than normal (homemade box), and with steadyshot turned ON, the rest of the shake maybe disappear with steadyshot turned OFF. Don´t had the time to test that. Yes my head-up is not the best [/url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-ULtYdSRMc I like to hear what you think. Now I need to make a 1 to 1 mould of my camera, to make a perfect fit airtight glass fiber box, any ideas to do that?
  8. I have all most 200 jumps with my CX6, no problem so far.
  9. Just weight the damn thing, and a colossal 1,3 kg(with CX6). I will talk to someone else with more camera experience about the experiment. I will try to experiment with my current homemade box, to stop the bubble problem.
  10. Hi Have anyone tried to jump with a CX7 in a underwater housing???. I will try to se what happens with the video, when i put my CX6 in my SPK-HCB. It is big, but i think it can be done. If it works i will try to make a new airtight box, because i'm not happy with the idea of opening my camera, and glue/lock the optics
  11. Hi Sorry for the long delay. but finally got the time to make a diagram, hope that helps. I have now almost 100 jumps with this "adapter". Cameye 2 do not work with the battery and low"tape" alarm codes from the CX6-7, but that´s not a problem for me so far.
  12. On Sony cameras with both the lanc and av connector there is a physical connection between the lanc pin on both ports. So i belive it is the same input on the caneras with only the AV port.
  13. Who's going to start the "CX-7 with open LCD is killing my battery" thread? It looks like that will be the problem. As far as that new camera, even before I heard the screen needs to be out to record, I was concerned about the battery life. It appears to have an enclosed battery, which usually means it's tiny, and there's no upgrade to a larger size. On the contrary, the smaller batteries are even easier to carry in your jumpsuit pocket, so maybe we have a winner. Just judging by the size, that thing has to be a featherweight, and it's shooting HD footage to boot. The open LCD was only to show that it works, no problem with closed LCD
  14. MAn, you should not have given your secrets away I dont know about patent laws but i am guessing you may have been able to patent it. Now you just told everyone how simple it is. Congrats on getting it done and good on ya for telling the family how to go about it. Might of just missed your million dollar payday though Hi I don´t think i´m able to get a patent on a Sony patent plug Just glad to help the family
  15. Hi Not sure what you mean, when you do the mood, the camera itself sends out the higher voltage to drive the lanc equipment. The underwater housings(SPK-HCB/HCC) and the RM-AV2 works the same way.
  16. Don´t use a 100ohm it will draw to much current. The right one is 100 kohm. My friend doesn't understand electronics I don't have blueprints, but post-it´s Will try to make some macro pictures of the bare plug
  17. Hi Laszlo On your RM-AV2 there is for sure(not have it myself) 4 wire out to the AV plug. If you have the remote unplugged and set your multimeter to Kohm, there should be around 100 Kohm between GND and one of the 3 other wires (blue?). The solution is to find a 100Kohm resistor, and put that in between the wires when you make your adapter. The camcorder now accept lanc
  18. Hi DSE Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whSQfasjeBQ I have som video quality problems when freeflying, but will post video later. Daniel
  19. HI The CX6/7 works with cameye II
