Just climb up, all the way to the top of the spectator stand, I was there. Found out that 200mm isn't long enough to shoot those planes in the air display, can hardly fill the metering circle. 2 rows down is someone using a F100 and 80-400 VR....Originally posted by StreetShooter
Lens aside, I think this is a great shot. The photographer with the big lens standing out from the great unwashed masses.
How did he get up there?
I don't read pop photog, but they advocate the use of the StoFen? Even outdoors? That flash must have a guide number of way over hundreds of feet to reach the plane.... ;pOriginally posted by Ian
Guess he was a pop photog reader?
For the ground exhibits, yes, and fair enough. But for those flying display.....Originally posted by StreetShooter
Well, you need fill flash to brighten those dark air intake vents...
I doubt it. Looking at the number of black colored strips (and their thickness), I would say its probably a 300 f/4 with a Canon 2x TC.Originally posted by Ian
Concurs with Jed,
Tis def a 300/2.8 as it's too small to be any of the longer lenses.
Too fat a barrel huh? But the 300 f/2.8 with hood has got THREE black strips!!! .... ah shoot.... it does have 3 black strips... :embrass: ... and the 2 bottom black strips are much too far apart to be the 300 f/4 :embrass:Originally posted by Jed
Sorry Edmund, I know you're a Canon user and all, but there's NO way that's a 300/4 lens. :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
