I’m confused about the picture and video packages. All I want is a picture of me smiling while free falling. Do I get that with the basic package?
Yes you do but the flyer at 15 is more fun
Yes, go with the basic package!
There are 3 packages.
1. A handheld camera on the wrist of your tandem instructor. The only photos and videos you get are the left profile of your face throughout the jump.
2. A cameraman that jumps out with you. This one takes photos and videos of various angles and shots can be nice or bad depending on the skill of the cameraman. Mine was bad. Moreover, this one can only shoot you till your chute is released. The whole descending with your chute is not captured until the last moment when you touch the ground.
3. A combination of the 2.
The basic 12000ft or 15000ft doesn't come with the photo/video package. You have to get either 1 of the above. There is no standalone photo package.
Hope this helps.
