Re: New Canon R cameras etc

I ordered the R6 and battery grip yesterday. Might add the R5 to my kit next year. Mirrorless is the future.... Congrats for purchasing an early Christmas present for yourself, eirik. :wink: :smiley: I considered the R5 (as you & I discussed on another thread) but I'm not into video and I doubt tha...

Re: Oshkosh 2020.

Although we have rolled over our accommodation to 2021, we believe that there is only a 50% chance that we will go. Restrictions on overseas travel, availability of a vaccine, possible quarantine periods upon arrival ... etc. will be things that we consider. I am hoping to go in 2021 for the first t...

48hr Photo Comp: Best aerobatic/stunt performer.

I have always admired those who perform aerobatics, wing-walking, ribbon cutting and other 'stunts' at airshows. Let's see your images of your favourite. I'll post mine tonight, after I get home.

Re: Garden Macro *Lockdown* update 2

Thanks for the update. I, too, have heard only good comments about the Tamron macro.

Unfortunately, here in Oz, we're heading into the cold, grey and wet time of the year, so not many bugs to shoot. Once the Covid restrictions are loosened, I may go out to 'chase' a few native terrestrial orchids.

Re: 2019 Chino Airshow-Warbird heaven

They're a fab collection of images, Peter. One P47 would be amazing to see at an airshow but three, including two razor-backs, would be heaven. How is the light direction at Chino? From what I've seen on SunCalc one is shooting into the sun for most, if not all, of the day. Thanks for sharing.
