Helicopter Pilot's Flight Manual, Chapter 3: Landings, Section 1...

"Always verify that your chosen landing area is at least 50% larger than your rotor span. Verify that no obstructions are within that area. Typical obstructions include fences, power lines, posts, vehicles, trees, people and satellite antennas."

Steve, I really enjoy the landscape shots you add to our home here. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.



Nice work Leo,

You could do a whole portfolio based on "upclose" aircraft abstracts with surfaces like this one....

Been a few messages about shootin' race cars ....... here's a link to who I believe must be a PRO Dragster shooter due to his access, remote cameras ....

Hi guys,

after much chasing looks like Ive finally gotten onto a Big L Lens, Ive found a 400 2.8 IS S1 Canon. Has anyone here got one & whats you opinions of it ??>I'll be using it for Airshows , Aussie rules Football (daytime) Motorsport etc.

Ive been using my 100-400 but the f5.6 coupled with the fact that its not the sharpest lens Canon make have prompted me to go big.

400 on my 100-400 seems Ok for length , but the f5.6 is killin me..I was looking at a 300 2.8 IS but was concerned about stretghing to 400/420 witha 1.4TC.

Anyone got any reason to second guess this purchase ??
Im shooting with a 7D body..

I think I'll be shooting with a Monopod..

Al

Al, the 400 V1 is a great lens! It will work great but is a heavy lens. For daylight games and airships, my choice would be the 300+1.4 for weight reasons. If you are shooting any night sports, you can't beat the 400 2.8. I have shot the 400 handheld at several American football games by prefer to shoot field sports from a tripod. I've shot it on both a 7D and a 1D IV.

It is hard to go wrong either way you choose though.

Leo, Was there that much difference between the 7D & the 1D4

This is financed with some money I had earmarked for a 1D4,...I figured that Id start with a long 2.8 lens instaed of a body up date for now....

I think the extra 2 stops over the 100-400 will allow better AF...

With a 1d3 and a 300mm lens, I rarely found myself wishing for extra reach at the Houston air show, except for a few of the smaller warbirds that kept their distance from the flight line. For bombers and jets, I occasionally wished for just a little less reach when they were right in front of me.

Mark is awesome - he used to be a regular poster on here (not MA2A but fm.com) until a bunch of jokers ran him off by trolling his threads.

Al, the primary difference between the two was the focus tenacity and frame rate for me. The 7d is no slouch but the 1D IV is just better. That being said, I would rather have a 7d+400 than a 1D IV+400+1.4 for similar reach. Maybe my combo with TC was sub-par, but I got better results without the converter.

Yep, Mark has it going on with drag racing and several other sports as well. I've enjoyed following his blog for several years now.
