Re: Old warden 5/10/14 race day

Agreed, I would've deleted both of them tbh The mustang is too dark, and the comet is extremely soft Yeah, but you wouldn't have gone to the show because you're 16 and life is so set against you because you want money but don't want to work. Wrong I actually attended the show, and without trying to...

Re: (Canon) Glass or Body Dilemma

I just swapped to the 7D and it's a great little camera for the money, personally I think you've got the wrong glass on it. Although there are sharp examples of the 100-400 they are rare and hard to find, most are soft at 400mm. I use a 400mm f5.6 and although I don't have IS with it I find the shar...

Re: First Attempt

Pretty good for your first show! Mustang looks a little out of focus but the first and last are great shots. With the prop aircraft you may want to drop the shutter speed just a touch to get abit more prop blurr, 1/250 - 1/320 will do for most faster prop warbirds and about 1/160th for helos I'd say...

Re: Old Warden with a whole new setup

Thanks for the kind words guys, One of the lenses I brought when I swapped to Canon was the 400mm F5.6 Prime, so some of those although they look like crops the originals are actually full frame! Its going to take some getting used to having a lens that long thats for sure, I think it will come into...

Re: DCS Sabre pre-purchase and beta access available on Satu

Yes, it's VERY good fun to fly, more fun than the Mustang I think. Only real difficulty I have with it is taxiing, I feel like I'm drunk when I'm on the ground in that aircraft lol. I was on the Reddit server last night, bunch of us were dogfighting, then we all teamed up to try and take down an Ea...

Re: Flying Legends 2014!

The underside view that the BBMF near-constantly present is also the least desirable angle on any aircraft. That is why people say they are "boring". Wonderful aircraft, but the way in which they are presented to the audience leaves a lot to be desired. It wasnt that bad, Taken from insid...

Re: What does everyone do?

Used to work for a major software company, got bored of that and left and now work in finance for a music company in london.

In spare time I write code for DCS (Digital Combat Simulator) and do virtual aerobatic flying with a little photography when the weather is playing ball
