    I have been using Sony equipment since I started. Most shots will be from an A700 with 70-400mm G series lens. It is an f4.5 to f5.6 lens. Last year I changed to the A77 which replaced the A700 in the Sony range. The A77 has an electronic viewfinder, which takes a little getting used to, but does offer distinct advantages. Although it does stutter a little in burst shooting, what you see in the viewfinder is what you get when you press the shutter.

    For other shots, ground and general use I am trying a Nex 6 camera with an adaptor to accept Contax G series lenses. The Carl Zeiss Contax G lenses for the rangefinder camera series were reputed to be amongst the sharpest lenses money could buy. I now have the 21m, 45 and 90mm versions. The level of detail they resolve on the Nex 6 is remarkable. Hopefully I can demonstrate this in the upcoming comps!

    Yes Ken, that will be it, didn’t realise the limit was 650px. Will know next time. Still got to use larger sizes on flickr as the links I make to other sites are 1024 max size, and 650px on the UKAR site looks pretty poor.

    Thanks, Pete.

    Hi all, thanks for your replies and kind comments. To clarify, I uploaded and downloaded via flickr all at 1024 pix. I use flickr because I sometimes post into another forum called UKAR which is the UK airshow review website.  If you want to see some world class aviation photos that is the place to go. A couple of lads there called Nigel Blake and Hesja (from Poland) will blow your cotton socks off!

    Ttfn, Pete.

    3rd image seems to be compressed – can anyone tell me how  I stop that from happening when I post the link from flickr?

     

    Ta, Pete

    Here here . I did not get the opportunity to visit the Olympic park, but Sharon really did convey the experience brilliantly. Thank you.
