Re: Copyright

I have just looked at your posting http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=92020 and the fourth one in the second batch looks identical. I addition I checked the EXIF data on both and they match again. So I would say yes, assuming that you took the original and I only say this because ...

Re: WANTED: CAMERA NEWBIE HELP!!

Hi again Luke, Glad you're pleased with your new "toys"! Not familiar with any of the kit so won't attempt to make any comment. The most important thing (apart from your enjoyment) is to get using it. Doesn't matter what - anything at all just to get used to it. Find your way around the camera and j...

And....don't keep us waiting - what are you getting? Or do we have to wait until it arrives :P

Whatever it is I hope you enjoy it - of course you do realise that you've opened a stage of life from which you may never recover nor be able to really afford :lol:

Re: WANTED: CAMERA NEWBIE HELP!!

Sorry can't help with Sony part of your question but to answer the bit about lenses: firstly it is not a stupid question - if you don't know, you don't know! Camera manufacturers only make lenses to fit their own cameras so Canon, Nikon etc. Probably seems obvious but see comment above! There are in...

Re: US Pavehawk Incident - Norfolk

Not wishing to "spoil" the tone of this thread as I am as concerned and touched by what has happened as others but I have to agree with the comments concerning reporting. If there are media people reading this then maybe some might take note. All too often the same lines of reporting are used showin...

Re: Random question but it's bugging me

Agree with Gary - the colours on some of the models look awful - way to bright like something from a child's colouring book -and no it isn't my TV or eyesight!

Re: Canon Lens Options - Guidance Please

Sigma 120-400 or 150-500 are quite popular and both can be found new under £700.
Good luck with whatever you get and enjoy!

Well done Waddo607 it is a RE.8
Er - not wanting to take any credit from waddo607, his post came in after my (also) correct guess. No issue but just to clarify :blush:

Cannot offer anything either so "open-house" anyway.

Re: The Mother of all Typhoons

Nice to see this important frame on public display.

Paddy - not doubting you but I don't have her in my 1988 Farnborough log but I do for 1986 so even older - 27 years ago so makes me feel even older now!

Cracking aircraft, cracking shots and cra* weather. Well two out of three isn't bad! Seriously though I think the conditions somehow enhance these images especially no.1 with the lights. Hope to catch one of these again soon...

Re: The Recognition Quiz

Purely to keep this going as this era is not my forte and as for airfield identification even worse! A reasonably confident type guess is RE.8 and a wild guess at Duxford although my limited knowledge thinks the dates don't tie up. Hope someone can put me out of my misery soon...

Re: WB-57 Arrives at Mildenhall- 21/11/13.

I thought I'd heard most "nicknames" for aircraft but "fred" is not one of them. Anyone care to explain the logic (if any) behind that one please?

And getting back to the topic - brilliant set of images there - thanks for posting.

Re: 120-400 or 150-500

Presuming you mean the current versions with OS they are as good as each other. Plenty of good reviews around. The choice is really whether you want the benefit of the slightly wider end of 120 or longer reach of 500mm. Both are fairly heavy but I find the 150-500's weight helps steady it. Google se...
