Curtis,

the hot shoe attachment looks like a remote flash trigger. It wouldn't surprise me if the individual keeps it permanently mounted to his camera.

Gopro users -

How many of you when converting the files, change the aspect ratio to 16:9?

Slow Sunday afternoon. I like sunsets and airplanes, so I decided to try to combine them.

The "radar" they were talking about was most likely TIS/TCAS type of traffic avoidance system that detects targets on a screen and announces them as they move within a distance parameter programmed in by the pilot. I had the TCAD in my 182 programmed to show two rings, 2NM, 6NM, the announcements would come when the potential conflict aircraft penetrated the 2NM ring. The system detected aircraft within 12NM 10,000' above or below my plane. Nice equipment to have, given the average mid air collision takes place on a perfectly clear day.

Thanks for all the info Jim .. The R22 pilot is hoping for AC and the Sirkorsky is leap years over that .. lol .. He didn't even see the big guy he was talkin' to.

.............. GO PRO ............ so my file conversions halt at 25% ........ n e body ever have same issue or do you think it's my hardware ..... I can watch the entire video in cineform .. but on conversion ....... falters ..

NE body ever have a GOPRO repaired .. dead center of the lens on videos shows like a bright spot / maybe lens has a scuff on it dead center so if subjects face happens to be dead center, you can't really see it clearly ..

edit .... ACTUALLY .. I need to shoot some video of GF without a case on it .. bare camera .. could be the replaceable plastic lens ... uff da

What I meant was, what are those aircraft in the background? I can't make out any landing gear, but their positions and attitudes make it unclear (to me) what's going on there...

Ah... If those are at Duxford, I think the ground drops away a little bit on the other side of the runway. Those are visiting aircraft parked up, with their wheels hidden in the grass and behind the drop.

Bournemouth Airshow yesterday was a bit of a disappointment. The Vulcan didn't fly (fluel problem) and, more importantly to me, nor did the Sea Vixen (no reason given, but really the sole reason I went). Added to that the display, visually attractive as it undoubtedly was, was offshore with the hazy sky with high cloud and the sun behind giving lots of flare. Also it was my first outing with my new 500mm F4L II - I have realised I'm in for a very steep learning curve! I tried all combinations of handheld (7D, 5D3, =/- 1.4x converter. It obviously needs to be mounted on a gimbal with a heavyweight tripod (I have a gimbal, but only a lightweight carbon fibre tripod!!). Cab anyone recommend a tripod rigid enough?
Anyway, so far, only three shots worth posting, all with the 1.4 converter giving 700mm handheld, and only two of them of aircraft!!

1DX catches an amazing accident. The driver walked away.

Have just heard that the Sea Vixen didn't fly because the only qualified pilot is an RAF reservist who was called up urgently (presumably over the Syria crisis). I have offered to learn to fly it so that they have a second pilot - I've never flown anything since one trip in a glider as an air cadet at school, but I'm intelligent and a quick learner - here's hoping

Here's hoping we don't light the fuse on WWIII for a country that can't stand us, and would murder all of us given the opportunity. Haven't we learned this lesson, seen this movie? What the hell is wrong with us? We don't have enough problems at home to work on?

I can't say much about tripods since I don't use them often, and thankfully followed someone's good advice to buy a good one the first time around. I'm partial to RRS over Gitzo, and that's about all I can tell you that might be useful. But they're both expensive, and there are certainly other options that should give you a good tripod for a much lower cost.

I would recommend sticking to handheld, though. There's just too much radical change in direction -- and in two dimensions no less -- when shooting aviation, and it's bloody hard to rotate yourself and the camera around the tripod's support point in order to pan. Physically hard to do quickly and steadily, not just hard to learn. My suggestion is first to try to do everything you can with this lens, handheld, before contemplating a tripod for aviation use. A few more outings with it may improve your technique a great deal, and a little work on your core, your balance, and your arm/shoulder strength will all go a long way.

Then, if you really find it's too heavy after doing this, you'll have to choose between the limitations of a tripod and gimbal or simply using a lighter kit. You might want the 500 for birding or something else, and so might prefer to stick with the tripod. But if aviation is your primary goal, then a 100-400might be a better lens for you, even though it's shorter and doesn't have quite the same IQ, if its more compact frame and lighter weight mean you can use it more effectively.

Love the Swordfish, by the way!
