Thanks Tsen Trip Report graphic detailed and interesting.Much appreciated
In February 2004 a Airside Visit was available at a cost. My understanding is that this is now not available. As I will be in Bangkok early next week are there other locations in addition to the viewing deck in Terminal 1?
I would also appreciate an Email Malcolm
With some rejections of photographs taken with a 20D for being too soft I have changed from using PS7 <acronym title="Surat Thani - Samui (USM / VTSM), Thailand">USM</acronym> and have tried Focal BLade Expert Mode. While I'm confident that the greater control over sharpening will improve the result...Jump to post
Since downloading photos 5 hours ago I am now experiencing problems with the auto select. Attempts to manually select Location and aircraft using the drop down menus not progressing to the first level. Should I bury my computer?
Spitfire Mk 9
The addition of 3 photographs (12 to 15) has just moved my position from 5709 & 956 back to 9014 & 1587 after 5 days in the queue.
Any comments please from the crew about an apparent computer problem.
Upload error now rectified but four photos accepted / confirmed by Email and counted in stats not added to the database.
I use Tokina lens with my 10D
19mm-38mm & 80mm-400mm
The results are better than with the Canon SLR cameras I was using and the acceptance level re airliners is a high percentage.
I can't compare the two cameras, my concern was the quality of my existing <acronym title="Far East Air Transport (Taiwan)">EF</acronym> lenses. Prospective buyers may be interested in the two very early examples take with my brand new EOS 10D. <br><center><font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL,...Jump to post
I'm contemplating purchasing a Minolta Dimage 7i, a SLR-Type 5 Megapixel camera with a 28 - 200 zoom The move from my EOS Canon cameras to digital is for convenience as Perth is not the recipient of a large number of aircraft and I have to wait several weeks before completing a film. My first choice...Jump to post
Johan The implemented process will hold photographers from uploading on a regular basis unless they are 100% sure their photos are "HQ" So the process is fair and should improve the overall quality. It also explains why I moved from 840 photographs and 81 photographers ahead of me to 3493 and 725 a ...Jump to post
Hi Stephen I agree with Ivica comments and also use Sensia 100ASA Slide Film I found it necessary to use I/350 to compensate for the 5.6 aperture <br><center><a href="/open.file?id=206629" target="_blank"><font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL, Helvetica, Geneva">Click for large version<br><IMG ...Jump to post
Eric I'm using a Nikon Coolscan IV (three weeks old) to scan Sensia 100 slides which I have processed and cut into strips of 6. The camera is a Canon with normally a 80-400 Tokina. The aperture of 5.6 at max is a problem and I found that 1/350 can be used. Scanning. This is what I do Preview 1 Crop ...Jump to post
Andrew Just discovered how to attach photos. The light was poor in my opinion in both cases. They were taken at 400mm 1/500 F5.6 with the Tokina. <br><center><a href="/open.file?id=188827" target="_blank"><font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL, Helvetica, Geneva">Click for large version<br><IMG ...Jump to post
Andrew The lens I wanted was A Canon Zoom to 400 but the price of A$6000 for a large aperture version was OUT. So I purchased the Tokina 80-400 for A$800. It is heavy and I'm still playing with speeds of 1/250 and 1/350 at the 400 limit when light conditions are poor since I'm using 100ASA Sensia. I...Jump to post
The 5200 is available in Australia. I have recently purchased the HP 5300 a 1200dpi scanner. The default scan of 150 dpi will work with closeup photos of top quality. For the majority of my photos I use 600 dpi .This may change as I become more proficient with the scanner. I then use Photoshop and s...Jump to post
