Propeller planes with the new A7 RIV

Went to shoot some WWII planes at one of the small local airports in Dallas today...

Realized early on that I couldn't shoot propeller planes with the electronic shutter or the prop gets really bent

Most of the shots were with shutter speed around 1/160 - 1/250 - the B-29 really needed a slower shutter to get good propeller blur...

All of the above shots were on a tripod but I played around with some hand held shots with the 200-600mm lens (and some pretty gustys winds to boot)...here was one of the good ones:

Lighting was pretty terrible overall which I think played a good role in not getting as many keepers as I had hoped for...will keep playing around to see if it gets better though...
