Here are some updates: Iberia is coming back to BEY this May! 3 weekly on A320. Ethiopian is adding a third weekly flight on a 737W (what's the W?) Saudi is flying 744s twice weekly from RUH in July. The remaining flights stay on B772. LTU is flying twice weekly from <acronym title="Dusseldorf - Int...Jump to post
It becomes a F/5.6. You'll need a 4 times slower shutter speed to compensate for aperture loss. It sounds confusing because the physical aperture stays the same (The width of the front element). But because the focal length is doubled, the <i>optical</i> aperture is multiplied by two (2.8X2=5.6) The...Jump to post
I drove all the way parallel to 16R. I could barely tell the road from the prairie! Most of the roads are covered with grass. But I didn't see any "no tresspassing" signs. The bad news is there's a hill between the fence and the runway. All I could see is the tails of aircraft landing...
Unfortunately I can't make it. But if you spot this guy, dial 911 immediately. He was seen suspiciously gazing at airliners... <br> <center> <font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL, Helvetica, Geneva"> MyAviation.net photo: <br><a href="http://myaviation.net/search/photo_search.php?id=00056617&si...Jump to post
I went spotting today. Got only waves from the police patrols as opposed to the <acronym title="Normandie Aviation (France)">ID</acronym> checks in the past!

Frankly, I think you're overreacting. Everyone has been asked to leave at some point. I've been through much more than what you described because of my nationality If I were you, I'd go back there before filing a complaint. If they ask you to leave, tell them that you're not breaking any laws. Try ...Jump to post
Well, we did our best. It's too bad they won't even talk to us. My guess is nobody wants to take the risk of officially giving us access around the fence. I hope they'll at least tolerate our presence in the old spots.
Hope to see you all soon! (I'll probably be there this weekend).
That's too bad because they're great shots. It is possible that you are locking autofocus too soon. Make sure you half press the shutter button right before you release the shutter. Any lag between the "beep" and shutter release will result in an out of focus photo. Another option is to shoot in spo...Jump to post
Chad, you're missing the point... You may have nothing to lose but Johan does. Just imagine a couple a.net badges found on a bunch of terrorists. I doubt Johan is going to take the risk of giving badges to people he never met or worked with. Good luck convincing him... Hisham. <acronym title="Ukrain...Jump to post

The 300D had a better sensor but LESS flexibility than the D30. It all depends how essential the additional functions are too you. I would miss those if I had a 300D: *Continuous autofocus in Av mode *The wheel on the back of the camera body *4 frames per second, 9 frames buffer *Mirror lock-up *2nd...Jump to post
I'm not too worried neither. I got the same response when I asked for access to the hill even before the orange alert. The "no trespassing" sign has been there for a long time. Obviously, the alert just made things worse. Hopefully they'll change their minds when they see how nice we all are in pers...Jump to post
Greg, I tried most labs in Boulder. You can get better deals and quality online. <a href="http://www.ofoto.com" target=_blank>http://www.ofoto.com</a> is my favorite.

10X zooms on DSLRs may not be your best option. Besides the lens alone will cost a $1,000. I suggest you buy 2 lenses that cover the whole range. The Canon 300D with a 75-300mm (4X zoom) will cost you around a $1000. You cn get a wide-angle later.

I want to thank everybody for showing up today! I wasn't expecting the meeting to be that successful.
