Space Shuttle Fly Over NY with Nex 7
Apr 30, 2012

Here are some shots of the Space Shuttle on its piggyback ride over New York last week. It went up the Hudson River, then back down, and finished with a pass over the Statue of Liberty.

It was a real-world test of the Nex 7 and SEL 18-200mm. Handheld at f5.6 and f8. Airspeed was probably more than 200mph, and it was flying low over the river, so the 747 moved pretty quickly across the frame. Focusing was not a problem; neither was DOF.

Expand the photos to see the detail, especially in the architecture. Look at the two men watching the flight at the base of the flag pole on top of the Brooklyn Bridge. There's even more in the RAW files.
