- The zoom range is small, and I have to crop often
- Whenever I crop, it looses sharpness very quickly
- ISO above 800 is completely unusable
- Whenever I try panning, the pictures usually turn out blurry and not sharp
- The contrast is also very poor, creating very flat pictures
To fix this, I have a few ideas:
- Buy a new Nikon D90 with 18-105 and spend the remaining $500ish on a Tamron 70-300VC
- Buy a new Nikon D7000 and use my current setup
- Buy a refurbished Nikon D7000 or D300s and a new Tamron 70-300VC

One other thing I could do is just buy a D7100 body only and use my lenses I already have

For post processing, I don't really do much. I find it very unethical that you are completely changing what you saw

Yea there almost all edited... Many of my shots are just not that cool, and I can't take shots at air shows because of my range... I have a week of spotting coming up here soon at KMCD in Michigan and just need to get some good shots while I'm there to get accepted here.

Usually I spot around noon to 2pm so the light is very bright.
|Quoting FLPhoto (Reply 26):|
Is before noon good?
|Quoting FLPhoto (Reply 30):|
Ok. So I will have to shoot at about 10am. I will stick with elements and mabye buy some new lenses or cameras, because I can't stand the chromatic abberation and soft images...
|Quoting FLPhoto (Reply 25):|
But $350 is still a lot... An I don't think I apply for discounts because I believe that is for college students
|Quoting FLPhoto (Reply 32):|
What cameras do you use?
|Quoting FLPhoto (Reply 38):|
