Full disc tutorial:

1) Never turn your shutter speed faster than 1/80th.
2) 1/60th if you are shooting a Corsair
3) the end.

Adam, welcome to our "Little" group. Great set and I look forward to seeing more when you can.

Regards, Colin

ps. Thanks Mark for the initial welcome for Adam. I feel like I am slacking in my welcomes.

Just to prove Glenn's point about Corsairs:
Canon EOS 7D, f/18 @ 400 mm, 1/60, ISO 100






Canon EOS 7D, f/20 @ 400 mm, 1/100, ISO 100

Sure, it's in the 4,000 pages, um and that is the sequel, there's a pretty good sized MA2A 1.0 too BTW, where is 1.0?


It is here: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/462776/0?keyword=mustang#3971768

October 15, 2006 to December 23, 2007. Only 125 pages.

We just generated 100 pages in our current thread over the past 3 months, but that is slacking. Over the 6 years this thread has been active, we've averaged over 650 pages per year. Back in 2006-2007 we had only 100 pages in our first year.

You can get to it by going to the City, Street & Architecture forum index page. In the upper right there is a drop down menu titled "Time Machine" with 'Current site' as the default. I went to the year before you began the sequel, 2006 and found it.

And since the Sequel started, we have had 339 members, unless I have missed someone that was here for a short time.

Wow Colin. I had wondered about the numbers. I didn't realize you were trying to keep track. Thank you for doing that!

I'm very impressed with the content of character from the posters here. It's very refreshing!

Thank you for the very warm (and educational!) welcome.

I'm assuming the reason for the 1/60th corsair shutter speed is because the the prop is spinning at a lower RPM than a "normal" prop driven craft? If I remember correctly, the F4U Corsair has a larger engine (shorter carrier take off?) with a three bladed prop (as seen in Wrei's 1/100 photo). Also, if the pilot is also looking off into space when stopped/taxiing and can't see the immediate runway, that means a fairly large (diameter) prop. So slower rpm, but coupled with higher torque and greater pitch = slower shutter speed (than 1/80th)?

Just trying to make some sense in my head here. :P

Yep, that's pretty much correct Adam.

The warbirds are tough for sure, due to their slow turning huge props. Depending upon power settings sometimes you have to drop below 1/60th which really gets challenging. Some of our folks here can shoot at amazingly slow shutter speeds. My experience has been, some days I can, some days I can't, just depends on how steady and in sync you are that day.

I remember MA2A 1.0 being around 500 pages.

I was surprised to see it that small too. But the last post on the old thread was Dec 23, 2007, and Jim got this thread started on Dec 27. So we didn't lose anything in the transition.

Given the old thread was just 14 months long, and in 2007 we barely got through 200 pages, it doesn't look like we would have had enough time in the old thread to run 500 pages.

Also, I think that over the years the number of posts per page when up dramatically, and I believe that also affected the older archived threads. We're 20 posts per page now, and that's what I find in MA2A #1.

Adding to the full-disk tutorial:

1. Radial engines turn slower than other engines, whether piston or turbine.
2. The more prop blades, the easier it is to get a full disk (T-6 engines swing only a two-blade prop, while a P-47 engine, which turns at similar rpm's, has a four-blade prop).
3. Takeoff is easier than landing or a photo pass (because engine rpm is higher).
4. Shooting with the sun behind you (or at least on your side of the subject) makes the prop disk more visible; c.f. Glenn's splendid example at the top of this page.
5. If you want a full disk of a helicopter's rotor, better start at 1/15 sec and work down from there. Oh, and see #2, above.

And there you have an example of the best of the best in this neighborhood, posting the ultimate challenge full disc.

Does my dusk shot of the Encore Wire manufacturing facility, at 1/8th and 1/15th air to ground set any records? I don't believe that I have ever shot slower than that in that situation. Keeper rate dropped precipitously, but there were keepers, ones that went to 24 x 30" and now hang in the lobby.

Shooting a home today. Almost blew it off because of the overcast and gloom and doom forecast. Turns out the light is perfect for interiors and I already have five in the can. You just never know.

Eddie Ray, sometime you should come up and spend the day with me when I'm shooting this kind of stuff. I know you love shooting your beautiful new home, you could probably teach me something.

I don't think you want to learn any bad habits!

We are in the process of working with the project manager I hired to begin Phase II, the final addition to the farm house. Work will probably begin late this month or March. Susan and I are very excited to have it completed.

That is exciting Wrei! I look forward to seeing the progress.
