Taken from my cabin
nice action shot,lucky you had the sun at the right angle to take this from your cabin you old sea dog.
Great shot, I would have used a slightly slower shutter speed to get some prop blur but all in all a great shot!
Cheers Connor, I have a friend who pointed that out, I only had the Camera since the beginning of Nov I am still finding new things with it everytime I turn it on. I am hoping to get to airshows this year and have an experiment there.
This shot is one of the best out of 20 I took at 10fps.
Very cool and very nicely lit. I particularly like your tight crop.
I do agree about the rotors, though — it looks a bit like it's going to fall out of the sky without them turning. Set your camera to shutter priority mode (some cameras call it Tv for 'time value'). If you're a helicopter person and you know what rpm the rotors are turning at, you can work out what shutter speed will give you what amount of blur. Otherwise, start by setting the shutter speed to 1/250s, see what happens and adjust it slower or faster depending on whether you want more or less. You'll probably need to pan with the helicopter to get shots as sharp as this, unless it's moving very slowly. Panning requires practice!
Thanks for the tips and the link in PM Dave.
This picture was really an accident right down to the crop, I had my 70-300mm pulled right back to 70mm, the rotors were no more than 15 feet away from me at the time.
