The "S" is a beautiful vehicle, from a forward thinking and an aesthetic perspective. Seems that, for general consumption, both the OMB and the largest car manufacturer think it's an idea not quite ready for prime time, even with the billions of taxpayer subsidies we've thrown at it ....

However, that's how most "ahead of their time" ideas begin I guess.

I'd have to agree Steven, if my Ferrari self combusted, I'd consider it a really big deal!

Hey gang a question Marcel and me are in the UK on our way to the Loop.
Yesterday we were at Old Warden in the morning i was taking photo's with the 24-105 and everything was ok when the flying started i switched to the 300 and the 100-400 but then the camera wouldent focus anymore and make sharp pictures it looks like the aperture is stuck looks like the lens stay's wide open tested the lenses on Marcel's kit but there everything was ok so we think the problem is in the body.
When we put the camera in manual mode and manualy try to make a sharp photo the view you see is sharp but when you take a photo the picture is all blown out and blurry can't show a sample because i only have my ipad with me.
But when i switch on live view for taking photo's it produces a sharp image i tried to take some this way with succes but that was with pre world war one planes.
Tried to switch off camera battery's etc but no joy put the camera back in factory settings no good either.
So if someone got an idee let me now will be in the hotel in the evening were we have internet..

With the Nikons you can get intermittent contact between the lens and body that will cause similar symptoms. Aperture and focus will work intermittently.

You tend to hold the camera differently while in Live View mode (or at least I do) which would change how the contacts line up.

A little bit of rubbing alcohol or a similar solution has been known to improve it slightly.

Great photos of Reno guys. Inspirational stuf.

I wish this pic below was a police chopper - I would have got a full disc.

Wasn't quite sure what this was, but this seems to be the place to ask:

Welcome Bruce! I believe that is a Yakovlev Yak-11 trainer.

(Folks, Bruce is from up my way. We're going to try to meet this upcoming weekend and shoot some wildlife. I pointed him this way to stoke his aviation interests.)

Thanks Mark, forgotten to mention that, but thats one very fast trainer, after being given permission he did a high speed run down the center of the runway. All I got on that shot was a blue blur, as I still had my camera set to around 1/200 shutter speed to catch the prop blur.
Well since I'm here again, and I hope you don't mind, here's something probably a tad slower than your used to, but its a Spad and DR1.

Thanks Steven also tried that but no joy it's stuck tried all my lenses nothing works any more.
Will have to bring it in to repair when i'm back home but it's only the fist day of a 5 day trip.
But we will soldier on just going to enjoy the view.

Greetings All...

Nothing new from the aviation front but I did just spend four really fun days with my wife and a Mouse on the tail end of our 18th Anniversary week...

The new and improved California Adventure is well worth visiting. This is their new Carthay Circle which is an exact replica of the theater where "Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs" had its world premiere "back in the day"
