    My parents will visit me this summer. I want to bring them around in SG and MY. Which BMW car should I use, which seats will be best?

    Hope that helps you to review your question. You also might want to have a look at the existing images posted here by other members. EXIF data and comments will show you the equipment. Make your own conclusions.

    Canon 1dmk4 and 600f4L / 800f5.6L for the aerial display.
    16-35f2.8L or fisheye for the static shots.

    OK seriously. Using a crop body (500D / 50D / 7D) would be fine. Should be able to get 1/2 decent shots with a 70-300f4-5.6 for the aerial display and a 18-55 kit lens for the static aircraft.

    That restriction prob only applies to Paya Lebar Open house (RSAF airbase). The airshow is held at Changi Convention Centre. So, anything goes as long as u have the $ and stamina...

    Right.. I was thinking...
    5D Mark II, 18-200mm, 100-400mm.
    18-200 for static and group shots. 100-400 for aerial display.
    What do you think?

    I also go there to shoot the air-craft flying display with a tele-zoom lens with at least a focal length of 200mm.

    This is one of the shot taken during 2008 S'pore Air Show, F16 Black Knight from S'pore Air Force. Lens at least a minimum 300mm and above to be required for aerial shooting.
