  • Yup! (Thanks). Here are some similar aircraft I took several weeks ago with the K-1 where the sky was good: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57769200
  • As you probably know, the Strikemaster is the name given to a ground attack version of the Jet Provost . You probably notice the difference if it shoots at you!
  • Yup! I've just noticed that they are adding an AVRO 504 this year: http://www.greatwardisplayteam.com/the-team-aircraft.html I think I've got a few more on that page that I didn't upload. Perhaps ...
  • Nice work. And I would consider at least some of them, perhaps all, as "portraits". Just not "pretty girl in a pink hat" portraits!
  • I have three, all zooms. They won't suit everyone! PENTAX-D FA 15-30mm F2.8 ED SDM WR Pentax D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM WR PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR Only the last of these has a ...
  • An interesting opinion. Personally, I have 7 of the 15 FF lenses in the current Pentax catalogue, and I've got rid of the two Sigma lenses I've ever owned. The only (working) non-Pentax FF lens I ...
  • More of the Great War Display Team . They fly mock combats. Or simply fly in formation. Here are a few. Lightroom, not Photoshop. I've lifted "Shadows" a bit to relieve the miserable day.
  • The Great War Display Team are good to see! I love the old ones. They did a super long display at the Cosford Airshow. (I've shot them before, and I'll do so again). I'm trying to decide what not t ...
  • The Red Arrows don't have their own support plane. They'll use an RAF Hercules. They do have their own ground fleet. But if they just arrive for the day, all I see are the planes. They started to ...
  • Thanks. I wasn't sure, but sometimes I simply want to put my case on permanent record. Whenever I see posts that I am uncertain about, I look at the profile of the poster. Especially "Forums" and ...
  • Now I have to comment! Given that I actually get action results with a K-1, (and post them here), the fact that you rent a K-1 and don't get results appears to say something about you and your ...
  • Perhaps I need to try FF again. But when I did, I didn't get 2/3rds. However, sometimes I'm shooting in Crop mode at the longest focal length I use, 450mm with the D FA 150-450mm lens, and still ...
  • Thanks for those. So they are the equivalent of the UK's Red Arrows? Or the Patrouille de France?
  • I find that the SR "hand" in the viewfinder disappears at quite a slow panning speed. As far as I can tell, neither the K-3II nor the K-1 attempts SR when panning at my normal rate. Is this just ...
  • If you had set the focal length, presumably SR would have been OK? I did. Thanks.
  • Do you think you learned much about the K-1 from that video? What you actually learned is what happens when someone draws conclusions about the K-1 before they have learned how to use it properly. ...
  • There is a situation at an airshow where a high burst rate is very useful. This is a "Pass" (etc) where two airplanes hurtle towards one-another, hopefully just missing. The higher the ...
  • The Red Arrows are best photographed against blue skies with wispy clouds, with no lingering red, white, and blue smoke, while able to perform their low-to-high altitude routine. None of that ...
  • I hadn't heard of Lauren Richardson until I read the plan for the airshow. Now I would go to any airshow with her in it! Lauren Richardson's website Just watch this YouTube video! She is like ...
  • Created photo thread RAF Cosford Airshow, 19th June
    As usual, I went to the RAF Cosford Airshow on Sunday 19th June. This is a good lead in to the major UK airshows such as RIAT and Farnborough . It was my 3rd airshow of 2016, after Shuttleworth and ...
