Take this picture, for example. Anybody have an idea of how far away the photographer was, whether he was on the tarmack, what kind of zoom it is, etc.?

I just now learned the correct spelling of "tarmac." There's no 'edit' feature, and I felt this an important enough message to deserve its own mention  Smile

I was about 30 metres or so from the aircraft outside the airport perimeter and used a 300mm lens at 300mm to get that shot.

Here's another one!

The shot is taken from a small viewing area near Twy Alpha as the aircraft taxi for departure off Rwy 34L.

Kind Regards

Craig,

were you shooting thru the fence, or did you get yourself above the fence?

Craig (or anyone), do you know of a good site online to compare prices/quality for cameras? (A site which also has FAQ's etc. for newbies to photography, perhaps?)

Thanks

Nick, http://www.photo.net/ has a lot of information and a generally helpfull crowd, but be sure to search the archives before asking a question. There are (as usual) some hawks who will flame you if you ask something that was answered 2 years ago in a response to an unrelated thread that went out of control.
Another site I like is http://www.usefilm.com/ which is smaller (thus less info) but nice nonetheless.

Hi

I don´t know if anybody makes such a lens, doubt it. I was using my Canon 28-135, f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens at a setting of approx. 75-80 when taking that photo.

Regards

Edwin

I suppose you guys don't mean 10-30 metres from the cockpit, but from the wing, otherwise you'd be hit by the wings!
