FZ150| Shooting with Red dot Sight - Aircraft
May 1, 2012

Here's the story...these aircraft were returning to base from practise flights, right above overhead (directly above my house). Granted they offered poor angles for shooting, but that was the best one could get without knowing their schedules and flight path Nevertheless they were good practice subjects, besides feathered birds. Initially I tried shooting with the EVF. Results: 0 (couldn't even find them let alone track them in the dark EVF). Grabbed my Tactical Sight (aka Red Dot Sight) and zeroed them for the next wave that were returning...these were what I got (not too bad I think, except for the angle):

Of course there were quite a few misses as you can see...

this one for fun...

PS: settings 8MP EZ-zoom; iZoom and 1.7x TC

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150
