Wow Steve. Thanks for all the great advice. I did talk to the pilot about an open window and she said it was possible but I wasn't sure how open it would be. Getting up before dawn is standard for landscapers and the pilot said she could start at 6 am so I am going to try for that.

The only advice I might have trouble following is the not changing lenses in midflight. My back up body is an iphone I don't really have a mid range zoom) So it is either start with the 70-300, which I am afraid will not be wide enough to get the whole valley and the mountain, or either the 50mm or the 18-35. I may just start with the 50 and try to switch once up or down depending on what it looks like. I hopefully will have my son and wife in the back to hold on to stuff as I switch. I guess I could rent a mid range zoom but I am trying to fly in the next few days as the blossoms are peaking and I am just waiting for the forcast to improve from its current cloudy with sprinkles Thanks again Brian

Is that 70-300G the one with, or without VR? Is it possible for you to borrow or rent another body?

You're welcome, Brian. The window will hover open, close to the wing, in flight. If you can close the window (and you should be able to since the closing lever mechanism is still there, just disassembled), changing lenses is less likely to leave you with a pile of crud on the sensor. Good luck!

Welcome Brian! You just got advice from one of the best on the ground, or in the air, follow what Zim said and you'll be fine. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the fact that you'll need to take the screw out of the little sliding arm on the side of the Cessna's window in order for it to "fly" . Use the longer lens with caution, it's a prescription for air sickness if you aren't a seasoned aerial shooter, and the possibility for losing sharpness also goes up exponentially.

Good luck, and let us see the results!

Chandler and I had a great day today, r/c flying early for a few hours, back home for the annual Easter egg hunt, then back out to fly 1:1 scale until dusk. The way a day should be!

I knew I needed all 600mm for this shot: EF300 f/4L + 2.0 TC III. Wish the combo was a little sharper, though.

Jim cool to see that Chandler has the same determined facial expression as you, cool that he has the opportunity to experience flight...

Took another stab at the whole video thing, this time put considerably more time and resources into the production and processing. man what a lot of work! I like the results much better than my first try..

Hi Stevez:

What a great trip you had! You can tell you in a world far far away when the flares come out. I really wish we could fire those in the good ol USA.

Great stuff, J-A!

Here's Jurgis Kairys, right side up for once, 'racing' the Lambo at Wanaka. Weird optical illusion, but the car is closer to the camera, as the second photo makes clear.
