    And they were indeed going pretty quickly Kat :)
    Didn't turn out bad.
    That's true - not all my panning that day turned out.
    They had a real one there, but it didn't fly on the day. There were two of these models though (fairly large for model planes too).
    Focus wise, AF, in Ai-Focus mode.

    ah ok.. i was watching this vid on the Nikon Chanel on YouTube, and the fulla said to focus on the background, and then when your painting the camera around, gradually turn the focus ring to be focused on the car or whatever the subject is..lol so yer ,

    That's how it was done in the "old days" of manual focus lenses.

    Greatest aircraft ever built :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Well definitely the greatest high altitude fighter, but the Typhoon and Sea-Fury ruled the lower altitudes (and sounded awesome in a dive).

    Woah nice capture. The surrounding being motion blurred goes so well with it
