    I don't think you'd be able to do it with anything less than a 1D :)
    unless you did a long exposure of course, but even still!

    Love this one Dave... another cracking cannon shot. I especially love the angle, getting our Aussie flag in there too. Well done mate.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewkumler] Timing is everything on these shots, but even after shooting quite a few, it's still very much hit-n-miss.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/bigvern1263] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/brisbanerocks] I'm still impressed when I manage to catch these, it all happens in such a short time period that it's sooo easy to miss.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nosbor12] Previous years (and in fact some of this years) shots were on the 5DII (only does 3.9fps). You could, if you were exceptionally lucky, do it in one shot (i.e. not burst). The 1D makes it a bit easier, but is no guarantee you'll get the shot.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/36604574@N05] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/teejaybee] Indeed they are! ;-)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ross_m] And I got the second canon moments later too.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/missenchantedgypsy] 'twas quite pleased with the wind direction and speed that morning for just that purpose (the flag that is).
