Re: Posting photos onto FC other than via flickr

Hi folks, some advice if possible please? Slowly getting used to the Canon camera now. Me and the missus took a trip to Lakenheath on Tues 18th managed to get some good shots of F-15Es and a sole F-15C using the 300mm lense. Well worth the long drive from Birmingham! I want to try and post some pic...

Re: Shutter Speed with 7D & 150-600mm

I personally find os mode 1 to be better, yes you could set your aperture at that, but to make life easier you can put it into TV mode or shutter priority. this means you can set the shutter speed and the camera will work out the aperture this can be important because if the scene your shooting keep...
