RE: How Is The Fujifilm S5500?

I have to agree with Will, Stay clear of the Fuji and get a DSLR if you're serious about Avaition Photography, and if someone else is footing the bill, go for it <img src="/discussions/graphics/biggrin.gif" ALT="Big grin"> You can get a Canon 10D for about <acronym title="Airborne Express (USA)...

Have you tried contacting the photographer and asking him what camera and the settings he used for the shot?

Now that you've recovered you photo's, what was the root cause of the problem. Bad CD, equipment?
Just so that amatures like me can learn from you.

One other thing I found out to my cost, they'll charge you the vat and import duties on the postage aswell.

I didn't know that Canon wouldn't repair parts bought outside Sweden! Presume they extend that to the whole of the EU?!

RE: Badcameraangle Help, Please!

I've had another look at the photo and I think it looks good to me. However if the plane behind the stabilizer was taken out or was blocked more so that all you could see was the main plane and two tails . . . that would be quite a good photo. I dont quite get all this level talk. Take care Fergul

I can only assume its because the stabiliser is cutting throught he plane in the backround.
Just my thought, but I'm no pro, just an amatuer!

I have recently bought a Canon camera, 10D. You might want to try the above site for lenses, they're quite good on prices. Personally I would go for the Canon lens.

Good luck

RE: Canon And Nikon Offer Dslr Rebates

Don't buy in Ireland for cameras, or anything else for that matter. You get ripped off in this country. Best deals are in the UK or EU. Cheapest price I found for the EOS10D in Ireland was €1800 with a sigma lens. I got my 10D for €1700 but got two Canon lenses, 28-100 & 75-300 <acronym title="Koh S...
