Re: Criticism on Canon 7D II with Sigma 150-600mm

Hi chaps, i use this lens on my Nikon D7200 and ive found that higher shutter speeds helps a lot with the overall sharpness of the image, i found that shutter speeds between 1/1600-1/2000 is perfect for crystal sharp images, obviously this only an option when your shooting jets. Also i'm not sure w...

Re: Criticism on Canon 7D II with Sigma 150-600mm

I have the same combo although I've not used it in anger yet. I'm being told the that F8 is the sweet spot on the lens so maybe work with that in mind as I notice that a few of your shots are at F14.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

The display pilot is based in the US isn't he? If they are going to fly him from the US to the UK then surely it would make sense to travel in a US based F16 rather than having to fly a jet from Europe for him to display in..

Very well said Jaymer15. Liverpool do seem to be classed as the lepers of the UK, when they are in fact some of the nicest, honestest and sincerest people I have ever met since I moved to the area..

Re: RIP Brexit

Mogg really reminds me of Oswald Mosley. The fact that he's profiteering from this fiasco is a complete national betrayal and what a hypocrite, he's changed his mind more times than I've changed socks this month (daily in my case before anyone says anything smart..)

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

The Reds should use music as the general public don't want to hear shouting they don't understand. I personally quite like the shouting as nearly all the displays have music through them along with some commentary. I really think you may have misjudged public opinion there, don't they use Queen any...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Mark i completely agree with everything you have said, and thats all i was trying to say, the tattoo is meant to be the biggest military air show in the world where you see all the unique stuff you wouldn't normally see at an air show, so by putting up 5 f16's for displays gets a bit same old, i lo...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Surely the worlds best airshow should have a max limit of 2 displays of the same type (including display teams) on any given day while we still have the variation of aircraft that could potentially fill the display slots? Mark, The problem with that is you would seriously hack off some countries. A...

Then don't go if you don't like it. Don't moan that you pay "RIAT fees" for rarities not fillers. EVERY show has fillers, like Motorsport has filler events before the main event. It's not just as simple as getting the Greek's and Turk's because you want them, considering the age of them too. Agree ...

Completely agree with Gary on the F-16 front. The F-16 is the primary fighter aircraft of Belgium, Denmark, Greece, Holland, Norway, Portugal and Turkey in Europe - would the naysayers rather these nations didn't turn up at all? Well Greece and Turkey can send the F4 instead for a start. That would...
