Nice shots again. What shutter speed you used?

These are the water planes I shoot with 100-400L from the Canada Place in Vancouver during my recent visit there. 1/320 is an ideal shutter on medium speed propeller planes.

In my experiences, I found the most challenges in shooting propeller planes are those fast flying ones in Acrobatic stun performance such as from famous Sean D. Tucker Oracle plane. It's flying really fast and 1/800 barely can have sharp photos. I tried 1/560 on his plane with most blurry result.

Nice shots!

I agree. 1/320, or mabe even 1/250 is good for full size props. I use a little shorter shutter time for model props. They tend to spin a little faster.

For the heli shots, I used from 1/100 to 1/250 sek. 1/100 gives very few keepers of course.
The last two was taken at 1/250 sek.
