Old Warden's socially-distanced drive-in July 2020

A lovely evening at Old Warden yesterday, for their first drive-in socially-distanced airshow! An excellent line up, it was great to see (and hear) all those "old friends" in the air again! Weather started off rather gray/flat/dull, but we had lots of nice sunshine later. I sauntered along at about ...

Re: First Show on July 18

Precautions sound adequate... I have been tempted out of the house, and bought a ticket. I suspect Old Warden's large paddock, gently sloping down to the flight line (which was always a great asset for shows)... makes it one of the few venues where this social-distanced drive-in arrangement is not o...

Re: Season Premier 2020- 3rd May

Season Premier is cancelled of course - but they're doing an online airshow instead.

Pay to view, and apparently it will be made up from clips of previous Old Warden shows?

Re: website questions

For the hosting option, take a look at tsohost.com. I use their cloud web hosting - 10GB space, plenty of monthly bandwidth allowance. The have off-the-shelf software for blogging (eg. Wordpress), photo galleries, shopfronts, etc. I don't think they charge for adding those to your site? But best to ...

Oh blimey. I've been trying to cut down on the airshows, due to changes in circumstances and priorities and whatnot, successfully for the most part.

But don't think I can pass on THIS show...! What a lineup!

Re: Cant get my head around sharpening

I also thought conventional wisdom was only to sharpen after resizing down to whatever size you require (1024/1280/1600 etc) and also not to sharpen the full size original, and to turn in-camera sharpening off. Yes, but I think that's just because it's the easiest way to go about it...? As I unders...

Re: ND filters.

What don't I understand. I believe your understanding is correct... For props/rotors we choose specific shutter speeds. That leaves ISO and Aperture as variables. But on a bright day we will be at base ISO, and we can't go any lower. So Aperture becomes our only variable for adjusting exposure. The...

Thanks again for the comments everyone! Very nice and varied collection, thanks for sharing Mr Hatstand. :clap: If you don’t mind me asking, do you use electronic or mechanical shutter on your mirrorless camera? If electronic do you have any issues with ‘rolling shutter’ effects? Thanks in advance. ...

Love the Avro 504, but I'd love it more if it didn't have that cone in shot at the back!
I'd have been tempted to clone that out...!

Thanks for the comments everyone! Hatstand, You always comment that you use non-DSL equipment. Because of that, I would like to make a comment based on that. You obviously have a great eye for a photograph. It is my opinion that you are way better than your camera. You can tell it's not DSLR and all...

Thanks Tbolt! Here's a few more from the ground displays. Shame AR501 wasn't ready for a flying display, but at least we were able to see her - and she was the subject of a very interesting Pilot's Chat. 22.

About your "hit rate", I heard if you just buy a more expensive camera and lens, that works? ;-D
Keep buying new gear, until your keeper rate is where you want it :-D
