Re: Photography Backups

Hi James, I use a 2TB hard drive permanently attached to my PC to store my photos on so I don’t fill up the computer memory. I then backup my RAW files onto two 2TB Seagate portable hard drives ( I now have several pairs of hard drives like this) I then store one of these upstairs in the house away ...

Extra Late RIAT 2015 & 16 (Large Post)

I've finally arrived in the 21st century with decent broadband finally available where I live! I was very lucky to be able to visit the hangars on the northside during RIAT 2015 & 16. Very late I know but I hope these are of interest? Thanks for looking, Cheers Matt https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Re: What aircraft would you like to see at RIAT 2019

I saw the F15 demo at Woodford in the early 90’s I think it was. It knocked off its display early due to torrential rain. The RAF Jaguar display then took off and did it’s display in the torrential rain, no problem!! One up for the RAF that day :thumb:

Re: Canon 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 vs Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II

I find Mk2 is definitely sharper beyond 300mm and is sharper across the whole zoom on those dull days when need to open the f-stop up to get a decent shutter speed. I also find the twist zoom easier than the push/ pull of the mk1 as I also use the canon 70-200L which is also twist zoom for aircraft ...

Re: Canon 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 vs Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II

Hi James,
I’ve used mpb many times and always been very happy with the service they give, both buying from them and selling to them. They also will do part exchange which might help you upgrade to the mark 2 100-400mm? I upgraded to the mk2 and been very happy with its performance.
Cheers

Re: FRIAT 2019

I paid for mine in one go last year, I’ve checked back and payment was taken on the 4th October, my number was in the 900’s so things seem a bit behind this year. I’ve opted to pay by instalments this time as I’m going on holiday at the beginning of November and can’t afford to pay in full just befo...

Couldn’t agree more, be thankful for what we still get in these times of tight defence budgets and reduced numbers of airframes in many Air Forces.
