Personally I'd like a bit more prop blur, but it's a nice shot.

Thanks, yeah it was my first time photographing planes. I read a bit on it and knew about the prop blur so I was experimenting with max shutter speed. I also dont work with many IS lenses and want to say I lost it having to stop down to keep the shutter speed down. That balancing act led to this. I dont own the lense i just rented it to try my hand.

But yeah, lower shutter speed needed. Generally the full rotation blur is whats wanted. Gonna keep at it.

Most of these air show guys make multiple passes, so it's easy to take a "Safety shot" & then work down to a slower shutter speed. I don't have IS & expect to have to delete a lot of "almost" images, but by shooting a sequence, one usually comes pretty close. ; )

Nice shot but as frank said. More prop blur.
A good method is to set to high speed continuous and follow through. Out of the dozen shots you would hopefully get something good at a shutter speed of 1/200 or less with that lens. also turn IS off.

I always ran the IS in Mode 2 when I used a 100-400, and do the same with the OS of my Sigma 150-600. As long as I have it in panning mode I have never had any problems with any 100-400, and I have tried a few as I always rented that lens. I usually shoot props at 1/160s, and it can be a little annoying on the bright days having to stop down to between f/11 and f/16 at ISO 100 to maintain that low of a shutter speed.

Nice shot. I don't have a problem with the prop blur. It only really bugs me when you have the prop frozen. That being said, a bit more prop blur would have made a good photograph even better.

I got to see 17 Spitfires (including 2 MkIs) take to the air at one time... enjoy is an understatement.

Here's "Lee's Hope" taking off on the Saturday of the 2015 Spring show at Duxford. In formation with a Corsair.

The undercarriage retraction is pretty asymmetrical on this one.

The Duxford spring show last year was quite good for first display performances of newly restored types. There were those two Spitfire Mk Ia's along with the Bristol Blenheim Mk IF, which actually started out life as a Canadian built, long nosed, Fairchild Bolingbroke Mk IV T, which has been restored as a short nosed Mk I fitted with the 4× .303 machine gun belly pack used in the night fighter role.

I could never get use to the P-40 sound with a Merlin engine. It just isn't "right" somehow.
