Ratings and Rigging

  • AFF
    Instructor
  • Pro Rating
    Yes
  1. You need 500 jumps and an AFF rating, or a tandem rating, and have the instructor be willing to let you chase to be the camera guy. You need a set of boobs to be the camera girl. My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    Demo vs "off DZ jump" (was: Fatal/S Ga)

    If you wear a camera on your helmet, but don't turn it on, is it still a camera jump?
  3. If people could replace 120 jumps with 2 hours of tunnel time to be an instructor, then surely USPA will allow camera jumps with 2 hours of tunnel, and only 80 jumps, right? Tony My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    Wingsuit landing next month?

    Yeah, instead of two people trying to swoop the same landing area saying "you cut me off" you'll have a swooper telling a wingsuiter "you cut me off" My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    camera jackets

    this system seems to work really well. plenty of jump on them. a mini-ring sewn to the legstrap and the rsl on the wing. same spot each time, easy to reach and undo, easy to clip on, nothing to go around your legstrap. -Tony My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    Why do skydivers put gear on benches

    The gear sits on the benches for the same reason people stand and block the exits of the deck to watch parachutes. No one knows why. They can't figure out why people seem rude to them as they try to get by. These are the same people who, as kids, sat at the bottom of the slide and wondered why they got kicked in the back of the head........ -Tony My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    FLASH set ups

    it all depends on what you want. I use full manual- camera and flash. (that is how I can use the PC cords) I have a canon camera, and nikon flashes. I don't use TTL. The camera only tells the flash WHEN to fire, not WHAT to fire. I do that ahead of time. It gets tricky sometimes though, but the results can be good........

    FLASH set ups

    If your camera supports it, you can use a PC cord and save some weight and bulk. This photo shows a PC cable coming from camera, and one coming from a hot-shoe adaptor....... My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    Where can I get one of these OLD lights???

    I need a very old style indicator light. One that is just a photo sensor, 2 AAA batteries for power, and a red light on the other end. Skydance doesn't make them anymore. Most cameras have their own power out, but I need this specific model. Thanks if anyone knows where I can get one new or used. -Tony My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.

    Copyright question - Not for hire

    Imaging if Ray Crock's kid had to give up McDonalds after the founder, Ray died? Now apply that to copyright. I see nothing wrong with it. If you create something, it should be yours. A photo, a song, a restaurant, etc. My O.C.D. has me chasing a dream my A.D.D. won't let me catch.
