It's a point and shoot that I bought about a year ago. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. Bought it specifically because it shoots 720p video. The only thing I don't like about it is its proprietary battery and limit on video size (hi-def only allows 8m 27s of video before having to start a new file, there's no way to make it seamless)

Aas you can see, its image stabilization also isn't too hot. It didn't help that I had to hold it in a very awkward position throughout the jump. I don't really consider it secure, but I tied the wrist strap to my altimeter strap so that I couldn't loose it unless the strap broke.

My dad's in China right now. He's looking for a relatively cheap 1080p camera + fisheye lens for me. If that works out, hopefully I can bring you guys better footage in Spring. Until then, I plan on doing a few more of such jumps with my current camera. I'm considering doing a weekly comedy + opinion show or something. If it's good enough, the ad revenue could pay for my skydiving. I just have to make sure I can get jumps in when the weather is good.

I did all this for FREE. Airborne mass jumps are OK, but until you HALO life is not worth living. I am determined to go out the door one more time and knees to the breeze before I take the big dirt nap.

I just loved 'flying', Man can fly, we are gracefull and aerobatic, we just have to work on that landing thing.

You can die. I love that song.

I plan on doing it one day. There are a few ways of getting it done in the civilian world. The military wouldn't have me do it if I ever joined for the job I want (more on that in another thread).

Come to DeLand during the school year and I'll see if I can use my discount on a tandem for you. Unless you've got a license or something, then we could jump together.

Hells yea

I'm going to *lovingly remove* one forumer, everyday, until The Batman takes of the Mask.
