At 1/30th, the runway number are tack sharp, unreal. I can hardly wait to try some air to air tricks with this rig!

The other thing a tool like this allows one to do, is amortize the cost of it in one evening............

I seem to have neglected to post a few more shots from our "Yak Attack" a couple of weeks ago. A mixture of Yak-52s and Nanchangs:



















See ya:

I'm not rolling anything. I'm just running like crazy to stay out of Glenn's way!

Nice stuff Jim. However, being from Detroit, when I see the word Gyro, I think Beef and Lamb on flat bread with yogurt! OPAH!

Sorry for being tardy, been cloning dust spots for the last 2 hours!

I hear that they are doing free sensor cleaning at HQ this week, which includes lunch at I'n'O............ For anyone with the initials GW, from Austin.................

All kidding aside, Ya gotta clean those sensors or you'll spend the rest of your life cloning crud. I hate it. The X and the D800, mostly the X get trashed very quickly.

Thanks Rich and Jay. It's so nice to have something you spend a bunch of money on end up being more than you had hoped for. Far too often the scenario is reversed. There's one winging it's way to a very talented MA2A'er as we speak. I can't wait to see the grin, as if his stuff isn't stellar enough as it is.

Oh, and just for grins I looked at every frame from tonight's flight. The results are in, 487 frames, three weren't sharp. I'm debating whether to send it back................. I wanted to shoot a video so badly, but that's not what I was there for and the light was changing rapidly as I orbited. Given how everything felt, it would have been velvety. Another day.

Do you find yourself using that filter a lot Jay? Can see lots of opportunities when shooting during the middle of the day for sure.
Do you notice any IQ loss?

Not great quality, a 7D with 70-200 + Kenko 2.0x TC isn't that great to be honest (not to mention I struggle with slow ss shots). An Army Air Coprs Lynx doing it's thing

These were shot around 4pm in the afternoon with .9 (3 stop) sheet ND cut to 52mm discs and sandwiched in the stock Canon drop in filter holder (ie, NOT the threaded one)

300mm f/2.8
1/125 @ f/4.5 ISO 100


500mm f/4
1/125 @ f/5.6 ISO 100


Now this was shot very early in the morning with the 300mm + ND and the light was such that wide open at f/2.8 and 1/125 was more or less the right exposure! Notice the foreground. That's not T/S effect. That's simply f/2.8 at work. You won't normally get this shallow DOF shooting props even first thing in the morning without the ND:


Oh, and major bonus, there was essentially ZERO dust spots!

Or you could just hand it off to your retoucher, and let him deal with the dust spots.

You think I'm kidding? I viewed a YouTube video yesterday, a Lamborghini Aventador studio shoot, and the photog was at some pains to add grid spots to make his retoucher's life a little easier, but in the final few seconds they showed a before-and-after sequence where there must have been a couple hundred dust spots in the original image, and those were just the ones visible at 480p.

I'll see if I can find the link...

Ah, here it is: http://fstoppers.com/aventador

...Show more

Knowing how unforgiving the D800's sensor is to the slightest bit of camera shake, I gotta tell you I'm super excited to get my hands on the 4x4. I played with a borrowed Kenyon once, maybe eight years ago, but the hassle of the extra weight, cord and battery pack didn't excite me.

But your tack sharp A2G in the deep, post-sunset gloaming: that excites me. I also think the dual-axis stabilization will be easier to adjust to than single-axis, which felt extremely uncooperative in my hands: single-axis precession forces just don't 'compute'.
