Took my new camera to the airshow today, thought I would share with you some of my favorite pictures. I ended up shooting 675 pictures and they turned out good for the most part except for a speck of dust I had on my CCD sensor and I didn't notice it till I got the pitures on my computer, I'm not going to photo shop 675 pictures so I may doctor a few of the good ones up. I need to slow down and center my pictures better but sometimes it's hard to do when their moving aircraft.
Here is another one, I like the way the upper wings shadow the lower wings it gives it a neet perspective against the mountains.
Nice shots, I like the third one, it looks surreal the plane is focused like its not moving yet the other photographer is blurred.
I think I missed the air shows this year, I always loved going to them.
That photographer must have been moving sideways REALLY fast huh?!

I wonder if thats Spots flying the biplane.
NICE ! What kind of camera is it again ?
Hey, don't worry about "centering stuff" the only pictures I regret are the ones I Didn't take. Photoshop etc. will fix almost everything.
No that wasn't spotts flying the plane, he was in the ground crew area drinking beer ! ALL of the beer. (uh, high spotts, didn't see ya standing there)
If sense were so common everyone would have it !
Any advice provided is worth exactly what you paid for it, not a penny more not, a penny less !!
Thanks, it's a Sony A100, they guy I set up next to was recording the show in HD on blueray useing a $25,000 Sony video camera.

DSLR------any digital for that matter--------bad shot just delete
what size lense were you using
my E-volt has 150mm--------just can't swallow $600.00 for 300mm
wifes Canon Xli has 300mm -------that lense is great for humming bird shots
play around with different ISO setting
daughters Canon 50D is a lot heavier------she likes manual focus-----she's a pro
It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.
Yes, it will shoot continous about 3 frames per second thats the way I was shooting the F-16. I took all of those photos except the last one at 250 MM. I was using a Tamron 18-250 MM. I also have a Promaster 75-300 MM but I just left the 250 on, it was a perfect lense for the show. I didn't have any time to play with the settings and see how they turned out. I just set the ISO to auto and set priority shutter.
