  1. i watched the vid. Does the red light react when shooting in burst (Sony A6000) ? If you have come to buffering time during freefall, I would think the blue light would stay on even though you are activating your tongue/bite switch. Any feed back on that ? Thanks.

    Mr.owc6 is watching the Masters, and people are screaming like they're at the Super Bowl.

    It used to be that both the crowd and the announcers would whisper, and maybe you would hear the occasional gasp and appreciative murmur.

    What gives?




    " GET IN THE HOLE !!!!!!!!!!! " ..... HE is the SCREAMER that drives me crazy. Right after a putt is tapped, some DUDE has to SCREAM it. You never hear the ladies yelling get it the hole. Thanks girls. :)

    ***I don't know why everyone is so stuck on level flight.... Strap one of these to each foot via a boot, add cutaway capabilities in case a battery goes bad (they catch fire not explode so its not like a land mine and if used within spec rarely have issues)



    Still not the kind of fire you'd want strapped to your body:

    Most LiPo fires are due to overcharging or to mechanical damage (like an impact).


    The guy who tried to stomp out that fire in short pants, tennis shoes, and no socks, was a real trooper. ;)

  4. Speaking of which, I know a few dozen camera flyers, with 10's of thousands of jumps between them, none have ever chopped their helmet. Does anyone have a first hand account (or verifiable somehow) about someone having the use a helmet cutaway (rather than the normal release mechanism) in the last 20 years?


    Peter Galli ( GUANO ). He is also the guy who SUGGESTED to me to never jump a camera without a cut-away system. Thanks for caring Pete. :)
