Re: Reports of Ukrainian 737 Crash in Tehran,Iran

Hey dara88 I don’t mean to sound rude but ALL the answers/explanations to your doubts are to be found in this admittedly long thread well before your post. So instead of raising the same concerns all over again I suggest some comprehensive reading. I respect different opinions but using words like „...

RE: Decent Compact For Tight Spots?

I can recommend the Samsung W2000 (it is called differently in the US maybe also in the UK). Just got one basically for non-aviation subjects but I am sure you could get shots on A.net with it. Compared to other cams in the 250Euro range, the image quality is superior. You can't compare the grain/no...
