Have your misses been mostly moving subjects like the kids you mentioned? If so, were they more or less moving toward you?
very sporadic. The missis of the kids some move some just stand there and stare at us. But..i cant really call those shots missed or soft, as they are taken through a 3 inch thick ballistics (bullet proof) window. So I cant even begin to complain about that as normal human eye vision is skewed at times/angles looking through that glass.
hahaheeehhe, I do say I laughed at this comment. Luckily the cold season is upon us and the talibs have scurried back to their ‘dwellings’ and are hibernating for the season..
I wish I could upload a picture from here in the ‘office’ but for example, I took about 20 or 30 pics of our PTDS the other day. ( see link for an example/description)
These things are about the size of a big motor home, apprx 200 meters in the sky, and for the most part, stationary. I was at iso of 100, and auto, shutter 1000, and anywhere from 2.0-22 on the ap. I know rule of thumb you want it in focus bigger ap number. That’s why I was playing with everything in between.
These PTDS have ropes that attach them and several hanging below it for ground guiding when they lower it. I could get it in focus, but no matter what I tried the ropes were never sharp. Always slightly out of focus. Ill get my camera on the tripod toady and try some shots on the tripod, mirror locked, 2 sec delay, and live view on 10x.. ill see if I can steal some bandwidth from our SF guys and upload a couple pics.
Thanks for all the replies from everyone..
