Duxford VE Day, Sunday only (non-DSLR)

Post by Hatstand »

I'm trying to cut down on the airshows this year, but I was keen to see the Blenheim (and a few others) so I went along on the Sunday. Had a great day, enjoyed the flying displays - but shame about the weather. It was lovely in the morning, but that changed to dull grey skies for most of the flying, and few light showers thrown in... not exactly ideal for photography...

All taken with my Panasonic FZ1000 bridge camera. Love the speed, performance, features etc of this camera, but I wasn't happy with its 400mm EFL reach for Duxford. I think next time I'll go back to my Panasonic FZ200 + Nikon TC-E17ED (1020mm EFL).

Thanks for looking, I hope you saw something of interest!
Goodbye 600D... Hello FZ150!
