Looks like Steve is preparing a list for Santa once again ;)
I'm sticking to my Box Brownie. I don't go in for all this new fangled digital mularcky.
No DSLR, Canon PowerShot SX40HS 24-840mm
I looked up the spec of your camers as I had not seen it before, and was most impressed by what I read. Canon got that one right, as they are the best camera's on the market.
Thanks Graham Sir,
I found it very cool for aircraft's,actually 35x optical zoom and compact camera... But it does not took pics in RAW but i did some DIY in it so now I can shoot in RAW(.CR2 & .DNG) too and making my entries on jetphotos and airplane-pictures :D
In June Canon have launched SX50 HS with 50x optical zoom of same price as SX40 HS was.
The following pic was of Saudi Arabian Airlines | Boeing 747-400 flying at FL410 (41,000 ft)
I was using a Nikon D300. It go stolen, then I upgraded to D800 with some help from insurance payment.
Lens: Nikon 70-300mm, Sigma 150-500mm.
Also use a NIkon Coolpix P310 point and shot for close up subject like a B737 50 feet in front of you.
I have changed my kit since I started the thread, actually downgraded camera wise from the D700 to a D7000 owing to other commitments. Now just using a Sigma 18-250mm plus 18-105 Vr Nikon.
This is my first opportunity to post photos after a long spell, owing to other things. managed a day at Manchester yesterday
