RE: Miami - AF 747 Runway?

I downloaded LiveATC on the iphone, that's pretty amazing. Note sure if I'll be able to understand anything but I'll try and I'll check flightaware as they get closer. Thanks and maybe I'll see some of you there (Saturday 5/26).

Miami - AF 747 Runway?

Hello, I live in Florida, my parents are flying from France on Saturday the 26th of May with Air France and will land at Miami airport. I want to take a picture of their plane (my Dad has been a spotter for years and myself for 3), but I have been by the runway (el dorado or official viewing area) e...

RE: Thoughts On DxO Optics Pro 7

I have been using dxo optics 6 and 7 for almost a couple of years. It does a great job for raw conversion, optics correction, and a lot of other things. Somehow I always end up doing the levels in photoshop though.

RE: Best Time For Heavies And Cargo - MIA

I can't say that I am an outgoing person...I'm trying to move to West Palm Beach for work (if Pratt doesn't lay off another 300 engineers...), so I'm hoping to go back eventually. Next time I will.

It was certainly fun to see for myself that a lot of people enjoy this as much as I do.

RE: Best Time For Heavies And Cargo - MIA

Hello, I was at el dorado yesterday Saturday, not much happened before 9:30, but then some cargos came and went, and I got to see the Europeans flights arriving in the early afternoon except the Air France that landed on the other runway. Light wasn't too bad for me, I'm not an experienced spotter s...

RE: Good (affordable) Lenses For Canon Digital Rebel XT?

The sigma doesn't have image stabilization.

I had the canon 55-250 when I started, it was pretty good for the price. I've since been disappointed with every sigma I've had, but this is my personal experience with the brand.

Best Time For Heavies And Cargo - MIA

Hello everyone, Since I am in Florida for a few days, I decided to go check a couple of spottig locations at Miami airport yesterday (Sunday). I did get to see a couple of nice looking cargo planes, but in the three hours I spent at "the holes" and el dorado furniture store, I haven't seen nearly as...

RE: NY Area (KHPN)

It would have been easier when I was just a tourist here. I'll probably try JFK instead, but I don't know anything there. At least I knew Ikea next to Newark ^^

RE: NY Area (KHPN)

hi, thank you for your message. I was actually thinking of becoming a member of the American Airpower Museum, but I don't know yet if I'll have so much free time. I was aware of Memorial Day and the show, I couldn't make it here in time but I still got to see Fifi at Reading. I'll check on facebook ...

NY Area (KHPN)

Hi everyone, I just moved from Europe to NY, more exactly Westchester County. I was wondering if anyone knew about KHPN (Westchester Airport) and if it had some decent traffic ? <acronym title="New York - John F.

RE: To "is" Or Not "IS", That Is The Question

The IS (mode 2) is helpful for panning shots though - at least with the limited experience I have I found it a bit useful.

RE: Canon EF 70-300mm F/4-5,6L Is USM - Happy With It?

My experience is that it is better than the 100-400. My father compared his 100-400 with my 70-300, and at 300mm my lens is a tad sharper, but that doesn't make much difference. The <acronym title="Island Airlines (USA) and Eagle Air/Arnaflug (Iceland)">IS</acronym> however is much, much better (twi...
