Would love to help, but it's a broken image...


In other news, apparently Red Bull Air Races are back next year! Coming to Ascot (UK) and Fort Worth and Las Vegas (US). Yay!

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.

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.


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"

While on vacation last month I took the train up Mount Pilatus in Switzerland. As we exited the top station we saw an Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama doing sling loads, this at an altitude of about 6,700 feet. I had trouble standing still while holding the camera so high, but I thought it was interesting to see the effect on the rotor blur as I rolled down the shutter speed.

That was too bad Jay. As our plan unfolds we'll be able to create our own version at will, so don't lose any sleep over it.
