Yeah..no worries..go for it.. Smile just didn't want you to be slowed down..!! I use a ThinkTank shoulder bag now which swallows an unbelievable amount of gear, and I find much easier and faster to access than a monster backpack..have a great day..Smile

On the subject of cases and trolleys, I bought myself one of those black and yellow, plastic, tool boxes on wheels, you see for sale in B&Q etc. Following my road accident, I now find it uncomfortable to have any weight on my previously fractured shoulders.
I find this wheeled tool box ideal as it has plenty of room for my kit, lunch and a drink. Plus, if you fancy a sit down anywhere, it's also a seat or if you want to gain a little height, it also acts as a small platform.
20 well spent!

Maybe see you there guys. Wink

When you get as old as me Ian, you have to have a seat at the ready!!! Wink
If, for what ever reason, I don't see you over the weekend, have a great day.

Thx Laurel. did you pad your box inside by chance as I see mine is made of hard plastic, I may just put my back pack straight

I was sorting out my kit last night and in half a mind to leave the rolling case behind and just use the flip side, but then I am only going to use a 10-20, 24-105 for static and the 100-400 for the display and one body.

I can cope with the idea of walking round with those on my back for most of the day, but if you are bringing prime/big teles I would rather wheel them round than sling them on my back too.

Ian, I have a Lowepro bag and it fits really snugley inside the box. Otherwise I would pad it out with foam compartments.

Well I hope it's bright but overcast. Blue skies and bright sunshine do nothing for me when shooting.

Can any of you experts tell me where you were standing? You've all got such great high viewpoints but all I could do was look up.

Hi Chris. For me, it's not a high view point but more of catching the aircraft at a different angle.
I'm sorry to say but a lot of airshow images that get uplaoded to websites are all the same, side on with no attraction.
I notuiced at Duxford that as the aicraft came from one side to the other, all the shutter buttons were clicking away.
Then once the aircraft had just passed, all the clicking stopped.................and that's when I started shooting.
I always try and get something different to the norm and as the brightly coloured aircraft starts to climb and turn with the sun on it and in front of a dark cloud or blue sky.....That's the time to press the shutter button.
However, I'm no expert and this is just my opinion and my prefered way of doing things but it's more the angle of the aircraft which gives the impression that the taker had a height advantage when really, this can be done from any ground position.
Someone else on here may have another method but that's my look on it anyway. Hope this helps? Wink
