I wanted to ask you about the settings on your helicopter shot, I was just wondering why you had the shutter speed at 1/3200sec and the ISO at 400. Please take this as constructive and not anything else, Keep your shutter speed to no more than 200 and for helicopters shutter speed starting at 1/125 and no more than 1/250 this will give you motion blur on the propellors this gives the effect of a moving aircraft and not stopped still in mid air. (If its twin Bladed Helicopter no more than 1/60). This will also show speed and power on the aircraft... (Fast moving jets is different.. 1/800 and Upwards). By choosing a lower ISO this will stop the graining effect (noise as others call it)

This may take some practice but the bennefits are worth while

Still alot to learn with taking pictures of Helicopters to get it right. Thank you Barry for your information that you have given me to get the better shot.
