I like the pix and the slight blur ... what was your f stop and zoom.

Is this what would be referred to as "focal length".

Thx.

Looking forward to your column there Mark.
You've shot enough double trucks for them to probably have a few new tricks in store for readers.

Anyone see the photos RR took of IRCHA 07?

Sharp and Crisp .... I was curious if he was using a fill flash for photos under the canopy and what lens / camera setup?

ill agree, stick with shutter priority and let the camera deal with the f-stop. its just too hard to adjust them both at the pace you'd be taking pictures

as far as manual or auto focus, i would choose whichever is better for you. the manual focus will be faster, but only if you've got good eyesight, well adjusted viewfinder, and you know how to focus quickly. personally, all the lenses i use have pretty quick AF, so i just use that (my eyesight is bad so its hard to tell focus anyway)

another tip, dont make the blades stop using a super high shutter speed. it sounds like a cool idea, but in reality it just looks odd. just leave a little bit of blade movement in there so that you can tell that they're moving

for equipment, im using a rebel xt with a canon ef28-135 IS USM lens. nice fast AF, clear pics etc

now for the gratuitous heli shots:


shutter 1/1600 f:8 iso 400


shutter 1/400 f:22 iso 800

Just another tip. You do not need fast film. An ISO 50, 100, or 200 is all you need on a sunny or slightly overcast day. If you use a fast film and shutter priority, the camera will have to use a fast shutter speed and a small aperature (f-22 or so) which will give you a lot of depth of field. Most people prefer to have a shallow depth of field so that the background is slightly out of focus and it will make the heli pop!

Hi,

Obviously DSLR is the way to go for the best pics with most options. As I was unwilling to take that plunge in the SLR abyss I bought a new Canon S5.

It actually takes pretty good pics. Here is a gallery of pics I took with it at our latest fun fly.

http://calgaryheli.com/images/Kelowna2007/index.html

I found to get the best shots, I shot manual, setting the shutter speed and aperature to get the best exposure, then the camera could focus on the heli better.

I think the hardest part is getting an in focus shot. That seems to take some practice, and the lens and camera can make all the differece there.

Anyhow, I think the pics are pretty good considering the non-SLR nature. Whatever Mark and Spitty say thought, listen. They seem to have figured it all out

Trevor.
