Reno this year can be summed up in these two pictures from Saturday night. Strega pit, cowlings are not even off, Rare Bear pit, everybody scratching their heads trying to figure out why the Bear is running hot. Some weeks after the races the entire Rare Bear crew was fired.

Still cleaning sensors. I can tell you that the wands with the pec pads wrapped around them and the Eclipse solution are one door away from completely worthless. I got all the sensors clean enough to do what I have to do this week, but squeaky clean they are not. My visible dust stuff should arrive in a couple of days. I should have kept my inventory up.

The Buy & Sell on this forum is incredible. I posted those two Canon flashes, they were both sold to the same gentleman (in Dallas) in five minutes. I'm handing them to him on the way to my Airbus shoot in the morning.

Can't decide whether to hold off upgrading my 300 & 500. Seems like the 200-400 is going to fill those gaps, at least the 500. Who knows when that will hit the street though. I'd like to get it in this year's business.

Glen: it would appear the lighting was perfect on day 2 great shots. Guessing theyre using one of the greens from Multicam for the Chinooks.

Jeff: Sewer pipes or not, you are getting that panning down great!

edit - here's an image to hold the fort while Rodolfo goes digging...


I'm going to have to IOU that image, unfortunately... I've spent the better part of the weekend neck-deep in the writing of a contract for my lawyers to review, and I'm leaving on my last business trip for the year tomorrow morning. I'll be home on Friday, but I don't really expect to be "back" in MATA until Christmas week. Come hell or high water, I'm taking two weeks off to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Should I not "see" you all early enough, Merry Christmas to all of you! May the Lord grant each of you ten times the blessings he has given me in terms of joy, peace, love, family, friendship, meaning, purpose, and even sustenance.

Guys got a question,...
When i got my 300 f2.8. It has a drop in lens marked "gellatin" in it.

Does anyone use drop in filters in these Lenses , if so what do you use ...., or do you use nothing ??

I know you can buy CPL for it, but given Ive tried CPLs on other long lenses & the sky goes spastic from one side of the pan to the next...forget CPL s for my action shooting.

Hi Al,

I have a couple of polarizers in the drop in component, but I haven't used them for years. I think I have UV filetrs in all the drop in's. Personally, I wouldn't spend the $$ for polarizers in that case.

You can drop in a nice ND8 to get the shutter speed nice for shooting moving things that need to look like they're moving (cars, bikes, propellers, etc.)

I've got the CP drop in as well as an ND4 drop in, which I've used at air shows with some success. Only caveat there is that every time you swap out drop in filters, you're inviting dirt to come drifting into the lens/camera. If you don't notice soon enough, you can end up with a couple hundred images with an unwanted spot or hair in them. DAMIK

Good point Gero, and I am really tired of sensor crud at the moment. I can't imagine what the guys in dry climates deal with. Each time I got the sensors just about perfect, I'd go for absolutely perfect and end up with a ton of crud, and it all began again. I use visible dusts chamber clean swabs and solution. When you use the lighted sensor loupe, you see all the little particles clinging to the chamber, just waiting to do a full stop landing on your sensor.

Tried my hand at a few long exposures at KPHX. It was both fun and instructive.

My friend Jim Conors was with me this past thursday for the 2nd round of Apaches with his video rig and put together this short video. Funny i can see all my stills in the video as I was standing right next to him.
