Re: Airshow

Yes, there will be plenty of cropping, lol. I did learn a lot today though. I figured shooting planes in flight would be similar to shooting birds in flight, so I set my focus to servo, my shutter to continuous, lined up my shot, and fired away. It's amazing how many pictures you take when working like that. Of the 1400 shots I've made in the 3 months I've had my camera, 400 of them were from just a 3 hour period today.

Another thing is that as good as the 55-250 II is for the price, it's focus is pretty slow. It worked alright if you manage to 'lock on' with servo mode, but if you loose focus, it takes (relatively) forever to get it back.
