RE: Mirrorless And Micro 4/3 For Aviation Photography

Another EM-1 user here and for airliners it works reasonably well once you are used to the way it works. I swapped from Nikon to Oly because of the benefits of size. I carry out a lot of A2A work with hot air balloons I pilot one whilst also shooting the other balloon. For me being able to throw the...

Having been to Bagdogra I can say its is a no no, remember its also an Indian <acronym title="Air France">AF</acronym> base.

RE: Date Rejection?

Thanks for the clarifications, probably would be helpful if the help was adjusted to match the new guidelines. Might also help if all the Screeners knew about it to save images getting through the net as some of mine have previously.  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graph...

Date Rejection?

I have had three images rejected because I only put the year due to the sensitive timing of the images. The upload help clearly says "Choose the date when the photo was taken. If you do not know the exact day or month, you can leave them in 'Unknown'." which is exactly what i did. The rejection reas...

Spence, As an old Screener I can tell you it is much easier to find fault with others work than your own. As a Screener your kind of looking for a problem with the image, so you are more alert to any flaws with it. It becomes second nature when you have been doing it for a while and the obvious flaw...
