Re: EOS 7D

Probably because with modern processors, you can! Even on my 400D I was shooting at 1600 last night and, although not great, with a reasonable lens and close to the subject got acceptable keepers. My wife has a 700D and that is far less noisy. It's a case of what works for you...or not.

Re: Ottery St Mary carnival 2014

Not sure what the "forum standard" is meant to be or if it exists. I've seen far worse in good light with "better" equipment so don't worry on that score. :P Interesting subject and nothing wrong with them either. Light and night shots are always interesting subjects - can be challenging and also gi...

Lovely shots - thanks! Is it just me or did Italian Stars always seem sharper and crisper than other forces' schemes?

Re: F/A-18 Long exposure crappy images 3/10/14

Well clearly they won't appeal to the purists but then neither are they "crappy" (!) As photographs of what they are meant to represent they work for me. Had to make do with standing outside in the garden as they went over Brandon. Hope for a chance of some photos on departure. At least you got some...

Re: Technique and Settings

Might sound a silly question but did you have the IS switched on. Not everyone uses it I know but you wouldn't be the first person to leave it off when you wanted it on! As has already been suggested, maybe post a couple of images on here with the EXIF available so that others can try to help further.

Re: Red Kites

Well captured! Lovely shots of a lovely bird. My wife I were at Llandeussant a few weeks back and it isn't as easy as I would have wished. Those kites move so fast and my panning skills are , apparently, very rusty!

Thanks for posting.

Or to be nearer to a real figure, around 6,000 degrees Celsius at the surface and 15.7 million at the core. Yes I now you were generalising, albeit wildly,but I couldn't resist the correction :halo:

Re: Newbie going to Fairford - Canon 400d

Depending on the light, you will also probably need to over-expose for subjects against the sky. I would also say that the ISO 400 on the 400d is the maximum - if you can stick to ISO 100 or 200 if light is available. Whatever you do have a great day and shoot, shoot, shoot.

Welcome "Ontheflightpath". I must say that your first posting as a new member is not quite as friendly or open as some might expect. We are (largely) a friendly group of "aviologists" as you call us.
