That is true. I guess it depends on the rotation speed at the time of the shot. I had read 1/320 but like you I have had to go to 1/160 but it gets a little shaky for me even with IS.

On take off I imagine they are spinning the prop faster than the flybys during the shows, I wanted to go slower as I got used to panning but old age is catching up with me. I started at 1/250th but next time if I go I think I will start at 1/160th, that way if I have to quit early again I still should get in a few decent shots.

Messing around in the backyard taking some shots of some backyard critters with my 100-400 F/4.5-5.6II + 1.4 III extender. My backyard is not as good as Jeff's. ;)

In Imperial County, The Burrowing owls are fairly common.

That is a fun looking shot and that is a nice lens. Sharp. I can't believe there is some prop blur at 1/2000. Those little engines sure have high RPM. Two things I'm concentrating on is prop blur and panning. Next time try 1/1000 or 1/500.


These darn little planes were flying so fast and so close to me that I opted for a higher shutter speed to freeze the plane. The props on these electrically powered models really reved up.
This Stuka is at 1/1600

I was also shooting model jet aircraft and could have the shutter speed carried over from those planes...

Sometimes you have to. I shoot faster than suggested SS to make sure I get the shot when I bird, etc. The 2 areas I'm not comfortable with are slow shutter speeds and panning. Those look good.

When I wasn't messing around in my backyard shooting critters with my 7D2 and 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6 II, I was using the combination to shoot this.
