After reading the posts on the "upgrade" and noticing that most users agree with my opinion that this is a disaster, why hasn't the A.net team not rolled out the changes in a parallel fashion where both the old and new sites would be functional simultaneously while all the bugs are worked ...Jump to post
As of now I have to give the new Airliners.net two thumbs down. :evil: :( I don't like the new look, since it makes it look boring and just like other aviation sites (jetphotos). The original look might have been a bit dated, but it was very comfortable and easy to look at. I also miss the fact that...Jump to post

Good rundown Dan.....since I own Canon DSLR gear, I think I would like to stick with Canon, but I'm open to suggestions since owning a non-Canon compact camera will have no detriment to my gear collection.
Keep the suggestions rolling in....
I'm looking to purchase a compact camera strictly for through-the-fence type of photography for aircraft close to the fence. My main requirements are: -ability to stick lens thru the fence -fast shutter response (don't like shutter press lag) -fairly high resolution (around 20MP) -RAW -image stabili...Jump to post

My 2 cents worth.....It is very hard to argue against screeners. I know, I have done it. My honest suggestion is, take your rejections and move on. Sometimes you can appeal your rejections, but it is less frustrating to just load up your fixed photo you saved in high resolution (and preferably in PS...Jump to post
GA aviation photography is great. All points mentioned are valid ones.

This topic creates an interesting question in my mind....does higher hits per photo translate to more photo sales? I know this would be hard to track, since A.net has no idea how many photos get sold...but maybe that is part of the motivation as well.Jump to post
Some people always look for an advantage. Counting hits (or money, facebook friends, property) is just like anything else in life, that is how we keep score.

Just out of my own experience, 70% of my uploads are brand new registrations for A.net....this is mostly <acronym title="Garuda Indonesia">GA</acronym> aircraft, but some are 50 or 60 year old airframes and nobody has had the chance to upload them yet.

As a frequent uploader on A.net, I take a lot of photos and that involves having to process them when I get home with several full memory sticks.

My motto in this instance would be: "It is easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for a permission".
