Impressive photos but I'm more impressed by the hand holding / shutter speed combo. There aren't many out there who can get those results with shutter speeds that low. GREAT JOB.

I'm impressed, too. If I shot at those speeds, the planes would look like mush.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

These are all awesome, but 5 and 8 are just sick! That's a really sweet shot of the Dakota, as well. <Standing with Jay applauding>

I'm glad Nigel is a pro... otherwise, I'd no longer be attending airshows :-)
But seriously - 600mm NO image stabilization?? Not a typo???

Yes, I only use IS when shooting static subjects, I found that I had a much better hit rate shooting moving subjects with the IS off long ago, I also turn it off when the shutter speed is above the focal length (i.e. above 1/400th with a 400mm) when shooting static stuff too!

Thanks for the insight. I'm gonna have to try this... at 1/160 or even 1/200 WITH image stabilizer on, I have a very low "hit" rate on my aerial stuff at 300mm

Wow!

EXIF says the focal length is at 600mm. Are you using a 600 or a 300 with a 2X tcon?

Had I not been so in awe over the pictures, I may have read what Nigel had posted and that he answered my question in his original post.:oops:

Just a heads up, Nigel has put a few more photos on his Flicker page.
