Re: Canon 300mm L 2.8 IS Lens

I was going to ask for some more detail on this, due to having a idea what each model is worth. a)Is it an EF-300 / 2.8 at £1200 - £1600 subject to condition & accessories?...........in which case you're asking too much! b)Is it an EF-300 / 2.8 'IS' at £2100 - £2700 subject to condition & a...

Canon 300mm L 2.8 IS Lens ***SOLD***

Back on the market! A local camera shop has made a cheeky (although not totally unacceptable) trade in price on my 300mm 2.8, which really has become a bit of an ornament on the shelf. Optically perfect with slight marking on the tripod mount and some aviation stickers on the hood. Comes complete wi...

Re: Wokka Flt of all three Centenary Chinooks on SPTA 14th S

fantastic images, it would have been very special to see this formation - I know that the 27 Squadron special is down at Fleetlands and will have its scheme removed I think I heard that the 28 squadron special was now with 18 Squadron and I assume its scheme will be removed -has the 18 Squadron sch...

Wokka Flt of all three Centenary Chinooks on SPTA 14th Sept

A few picks of an historic day on Salisbury Plain where lengthy planning and joint efforts by RAF stations Odiham and Benson (huge thanks guys!) finally came to fruition. This was an amazing sight, and it was a privilege to be one of the small crowd of 'togs out on the Plain that day! #1 https://c2....

FOR SALE Canon 7D

Canon 7D (body only) in superb condition apart from a very slight blemish in the top right hand corner of the sensor which is only visible in sky shots, and is easily cropped/cloned out. An excellent camera for someone starting out.

Boxed with all the bits.

Looking for offers around £275.00

With a reasonable forecast and a new lens to play with, off I went to Salisbury Plain. A rewarding couple of hours or so with a Puma in the confines and a Squirrel kicking up grass on DZ. All taken with Canon 100-400 mk2 which I'm really impressed with. Here's my pick from the day....any feedback gr...

Frontliners have been few and far between for my last few trips to Wales, and even though I made a couple of bad decisions on this trip, the GR4 action more than made up for it. Great to catch up with friends old and new (and yes Gareth, from now on I'm sticking to plan A!!!). Gut wrenching to see t...

Eastbourne 2015 from Beachy Bwlch.

Well that's what it felt like with so many familiar faces up on the cliff! Good to catch up with all that were there. The photo ops for Eastbourne Airshow from Beachy Head are boundless, if only the display organisers would get the pilots to acknowledge the crowds on the cliff a bit more-after all, ...

5th November on the Bwlch Exit

A top day on the Exit, with stunning weather, great company and some superb traffic. First time out with the 7d mk2 which I think I've set up ok. Can't wait for Camera Raw 8.7 to realise it's full potential. A few of my shots from an already well covered day out. #1 https://farm8.staticflickr.com/75...

Me and the wife Sarah spent the day on the hill behind the Smugglers Inn, (great company and banter with Jon Webster). Weather was kind, if a bit chilly but the flying displays were superb! The flying program may not be as full as other airshows, but the fact that you're "eye level" with t...
