    Ya, origionally I thought my cam had some problem, but I doublechecked with the other.
    I agree it was quite fairly Hazy and overcast, but what I really wonder is those guys hauling 300mms in the show centre, lifting it up over their heads to get a clear shot? You do that?
    Also, I long ago tanned liao

    Here's the pic with its box with detachable stand. The box is around the size of a regular cake box, except a little higher.

    No big 2.8 300mm here.....just the smaller and lighter 100-400

    A long zoom helps 'cut the clutter' and eliminate the heads from your photos. I can easily shoot over the heads since the planes are flying upwards, and the lens isn't too heavy.

    Today i just used my 70-200. Reach is enough for lower flypasts and in all cases, no heads are captured.

    70-200 is quite decent too. Big targets like the A380 are easily captured with that. A teleconverter works well if you need a bit more reach.

    Not bad. I like the last one. A tighter crop on the second one (jets more to the left, with a long white tail extending off to the right side) would make it even better.

    Then u've to find out from them. But detailed die-cast models for commercial planes. I like those from Phoenix models as they've the most detailed markings i've ever seen. Al comes and limited editions and are not cheap.

    Yes the A380 sometimes i even have to zoom back a bit to cover the whole plane. Even the Roulettes are the same when flying in the whole group at lower levels.

    Looks like the sky today was a bit better than yesterday's. Yesterday when the Black Knights did their heart thing in the sky the top part was completely obscured by clouds.
