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!!
