Anyone know what that is?
Im quite pleased with those, my little Sigma APO did ok at 300mm I feel, I was expecting blurred messes of photos!
Divine - what time of the day was this?? I've been keeping an eye out of the window must have missed them
About 4:35 till 4:55, they did only fly down the river though, they didn't go anywhere else.
I went down to Calshot Spit where they circled a few times to form up.
I think the last plane is a Harvard. Apparently it was being used as a camera ship.
it amazing to get so many togther at once. How did you manage to snap them?
mmm I want to play flying corps
At least 2 of them are based at Duxford as well - Just down the road from me. JH-C and 161
Not sure on the other 3 - suspect they could be local as well *North Weald/Duxford maybe - paintschemes have changed over winter*
For a very brief history on the Spitfire - no better place to go than than the home of the only military operated Spitfires in the world. The BBMF.
best sounding engine ever in those things.... need I say more
Great shots as well
*makes no comment about nikon and noise *
Which engine ?
Twas the 70th Anniv of the first test flight-plus a homage to R.J who was based at the Seaplane works at the Spit........(came from Stoke btw!)
Engine that sounded best was the last one-the Gryff(in the Mk9),which superceded the Merlin.
nice shots divine.
Is the Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro worth buying?
I'm thinking of getting long zoom and macro lens but also need a good wide lens e.g Sigma 10-20.
My budget is only around £500.
if I go with Sigma 105mm and 10-20mm, I won't have enough funds to buy zoom lens.
I currently have the nikon d50 18-70 kit lens.
The Spitfires involved were:-
Mk.XVI TD248 I think.
Some of my own pictures of the above Aircraft....
TD248 in a slightly different scheme..
And the Harvard complete with Camera mount....
Possibly, I couldn't say for sure as mine is the older non DG version, and there are a few tiny differences apparantly.
The price seems very good bargain @ £160 ish. how is the build quality? and is the focusing really that slow?
I will be taking photos of nature and some macro stuff this summer in mongolia.
