I promised airplanes, and here are four: ladies and gentlemen, your United States Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team, 2015 edition.

Are they tight, or what? This is, by the way, an un-cropped D810 file...

One of the best opportunities at NAF El Centro today was afforded by the departure of a group of Marine AH-1 Cobras.

Thanks, Jim. I shot all day with the Nikon 300mm f/2.8: what a sweet piece of glass. Sadly, I have to return it to LensRentals today.

Here's a final teaser before I launch in the Tesla back to snowy Colorado. Sounds like a doozy of a winter storm in front of me: wish me luck!

Excellent work Steve. You certainly win the Mr. Steady Hands award. 300mm and helos with that much rotor blur - outstanding

That Nikon 300mm 2.8 is really something special. Of all the big glad I've owned the 300mmm 2.8 is the one I most often find myself searching the buy and sell for.

Outstanding shots, Steve. I'd love to have an opportunity like that one of these days.

There's never really been a bad 300/2.8, it's just not one of those lenses you can make halfheartedly. You'll find fond opinions on all of them, including the off brands.

Gutsy move Zim, using your D810 instead of the 1DX. Looks like it paid off! I thought about it for the Cobra shoot, but with the new 100-400 I decided that I'd risk missing some key shots. In retrospect I think that was a good decision.

Mr. Wilson, have you heard anything about your 300mm f/4 PF?

I had an interesting discussion with a very experienced cinematographer yesterday. We talked about many things, but spent quite a bit of time discussing lenses. He prefers Nikon lenses on his high end cinema cameras because they are more smoothly controllable aperture wise than the Canons. He felt like the optical quality of the top glass from both manufacturers was excellent, and suggested that it would be absurd to invest in dedicated cinema lenses when I have the glass I have. Kind of liked that line of thinking, it frees up cash for other things. If I end up with the Sony FS7, and that looks like a distinct possibility, I'll buy the new Sony 28-135 cinema lens that they just released.

Hi Ray,

No, but I have been so slammed that I haven't had time to check with Competitive, and they haven't called. I have one pre-ordered at B&H too. Might be scratching my head over that purchase actually. If the 5DSR comes in in a month and is magnificent, then do I need a Nikon 300? Decisions, decisions. I'm hoping to shoot with a new 5D fairly quickly, then I can figure out what the proper course might be.

Something that we don't see in still photography much, but is endemic in the world of video, are products that are marketed with incomplete functions and features. Cameras, recorders, monitors, it doesn't matter what the product is, the spiel is "buy it now and it will do everything you have ever dreamed of with future firmware upgrades". I've never seen anything like it. The Atomos Shogun was about the craziest example I've seen so far. Buy the Shogun now, don't worry about the fact that it won't play your clips back on the screen........"we'll fix it with a firmware upgrade at some point". When I opened the case there were a half dozen vacant slots "reserved for accessories that will be released in the future". I guess making space for that stuff isn't all that bad of an idea, but it all made you feel like you were buying a product that was about half way through the development process.

I think Atomos will get their act together with the Shogun eventually, the Samurai I bought is a solidly designed product that works simply and intuitively. Too bad they got in a rush and gave themselves a black eye with the Shogun. 'Firmware", seems like a great idea, but it appears that companies are using it as a crutch to put stuff on the shelves that doesn't belong there yet. Kind of like buying a plane, the wings of which will be available in a future upgrade.

Glad you guys dig the Snakebite video.. No idea if the show itself is going to live up to the video and the amazing stills Jim took, but it will be a heck of a good time at the handful of shows we're doing it at this spring at least.

Was playing with my care package today - (Kenyon 4x4 + RRS plate and L - thanks Shooter!) - what a great system. Sure beats screwing the gyro straight onto the camera like I've been doing with my Ks-6. I was just on the RRS website - they sure are proud of their stuff!

Can't come soon enough.

You going to hit up MotoGP this year Glenn?

Looks like I'll be there for a week this time around, flying in to DFW April 6th, driving down to Austin on the 7th, doing the Air Races that Saturday with Lady Jo again, MotoGP on the Friday and Sunday.
