    Never bring your old suit in the tunnel :)

    I don't think the tunnel owner minds...

    longer risers for Icon container

    You can put all miniring risers on your aerodyne rig. Upt sells risers with louie loups, they are quite big. But I recommend not to put more then 3 fingers in your diveloops. Because you also need fingers to hold your toggles..
  4. Before you buy any second hand rig: Try it on!

    Opteka lens fog

    For handicam I use a opteka 0.3 lens, the big flat one. And on some days I get fog inside the lens (so not in between the camera and the lens) its round and about 1 cm. diameter. and covers the whole face of my tandem passenger. It starts coming halfway during freefall and it slowly goes away after opening.. Anyone elso who had this problem and knows how to solve it?

    X-shut handcam mount ???

    The x shut handcam mounts are really nice. we use them here on the drop zone with cx115. but I think for go pro you better buy a gopro handcam because the x shut handcam is to big for a gopro.

    I have a sonic v2.0 and it is really good. You do not need a suit like this. Maybe if you want to compete world class. But it is really nice, and you can definitely feel the difference in flying with this suit. It definitely makes you a better freeflyer

    Tonfly vs Sonic

    They are both great suits. Buy the one you like better. And talk to experienced freeflyers who know you. They can also help you choosing the right suit with the right options.

    Sony Nex3 & Nex5 camera mod

    Well,. I don't own one. But someone from sony told me that it is possible to use a wired remote shutter. Has anyone tried it? or has everyone just assumed that it won't work?

    Camera Switches

    I use (and always have) a blow switch from ultimate switch. And I really like it. The actual switch is really small, and you can replace the cables really easy in case they may break. http://www.chutingstar.com/newgear_en/ultimate-blow-switch-2-5mm-plug.html

    Thinking about camera flying.

    The reason why your not allowed to jump with a camera yes is because it is an distraction because you want things in your video like the plane on exit or other jumpers. Not only because of it's size. And jumping with a camera isn't as much fun as you would think because you are not the one you see in the video..

    Thinking about camera flying.

    Do you want to jump with cameras or do you want to do camera flying? These are two different things. With camera flying I started practicing tandem video's and 2- 4 way video just paying my own slot. When the dropzone needed a cameraman they asked me and started doing paid tandem video's and got asked to do video for a 4 way team pretty quick. You want a canopy that opens soft (especially when your jumping with more than one camera) And a suit or a jacket with wings..

    first camera helmet

    I don't have a 2k composites helmet, but I've seen a few. And I don't really know why but it wouldn't be my choice. I would personally buy a tonfly 1x 2x or 3x. because these helmets are really small and really light.

    starter question

    I use a sony a200 for skydiving photography. It is a good camera. You just have to make shure that you have autofocus turned off and you have to put some tape on the flash. The downside is that there are not many people using sony photo cameras so it's harder to find a switch for it. (ultimate-switch.com)

    Post your Camera Helmet .....

    It is better for your neck if you put both camera's on top. My setup: Bonehead Mantle Sony cx105 (cx100) Sony Alpha 200 Photo's are bad quality. (good camera was on the helmet)

    Small Format camera/AFF

    Nice one! Could have happened with almost every camera setup. But it's a lot easier with a gopro.. Maybe use this to make it a little safer: http://www.chutingstar.com/newgear_en/square-one-gopro-top-mount.html

    blow switch (ultimate-switch)

    I don't think its the switch. you can check that: pull the two little plugs out of the switch and push them together it should start making pictures just like when you use the switch. or: Just press the camera's shutter button. I think you've got a slow memorycard. and after 20 pictures you have to wait for the camera to write the pictures on the card.

    Xfire 2 vs Katana vs Nitron

    I haven't jumped the Katana or the Nitron. But The crossfire gives you really nice soft openings. Best thing is to do a few jumps on all 3..
  23. Why? Because the argus doesn't cut the loop?

    Contour box? Anything?

    Rawa and 2K make them, and chutingstar sells them: http://www.chutingstar.com/newgear_en/rawa-contour-camera-box.html http://www.chutingstar.com/newgear_en/contour-hd-box.html But what do you mean by sidemounting it on top?
  25. EmuuuH

    Flat top pro setup

    I want them both on top because that looks a bit more balanced. Or am I wrong here? Can you see the stills camera when it is on the front bracket? And do you need a quick release on the front bracket? or can you just use the camera screw?
