Re: Prop blur on Mirrorless Cameras

There's still blackout with the mechanical shutter because there's still something physically moving in front of the lens elements and blocking the view. Even more slightly off topic, but that means that the picture taken by the camera is the one that your eye did not see ... I let you think (philo...

Re: Ferté-Alais 2021

Out of curiosity does anyone know why many of the ww1 replicas are 3/4 scale? I mean if you're going to the trouble of making one why not make it full-size. In the particular case of the "Pterodactyl Flight" machines, I read somewhere that it was linked to them being classified as ultralight aircra...

There is then a "hole" in my photo-report, due to a "booze meeting" with some friends not seen for a long (COVID) time. Apologizes for this uncompleteness.

Re: Ferté-Alais 2021

Before the air display actually begins, Aero Vintage Academy (a pilot school based at La Ferté) performs aerial excursions. It's the opportunity to test my "propellers" settings (1/200th, f/8, 100 ISO : @ 270/300 mm, results are correct, arm is still strong). https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/5141...

The F-35 is debatable Colonel, but the Avenger definitely has more than 1 seat.
"Thou shalt not post on forumes when thou art tired ...". Will propose something else for the Avenger. But will stand strong on the F-35 (unless I find something not questionable).

Thanks for this info.
I am still wondering whether it's just a wardrobe or if it's something particular (officer wardrobe for example).

William Baker cabinet identification

I bought in a charity flea market in France a nice mahogany wardrobe (?), manufactured by "William Baker, Oxford". It's probably from the 19th century.
