    All very nice but love 1, 3 and 4 :cool:



    Lovely - like the processing too - except that I find the vignette a bit "heavy" :)

    I've reedited it a little. Reduced the vignette to make to act as more of a frame

    Cheers for the comments,

    That definitely works better for me personally given the subject and the processing feel :)

    Hi Steve, great set mate, love the way you have panned with the red boat, what's the EXIF data mate.

    Besides generally better performance with the G3, the one thing that may help with things in motion is the excellent AF speed, it is a world apart from the G1 mate, as fast as mid range DSLR's, i upgraded my G2 to a G3 as my backup body, now i cant decide which camera to grab when i'm getting ready to go out the door, GH2 or G3.

    Mark.

    Hi Shane, well i'm going against everyone else on this ;) i like the strong vignette as it draws all my attention to the man in the doorway, i'm usually wrong about this sort of thing, what do i know :D

    Thanks Mark, I may have to look at the G3 as that is the only thing that annoys me about the G1, the speed of the AF.
    The exif is there in Flickr but I don't know how to get it to display in here.
    Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.:smashin:

    These are a few shots from Leuchars airshow with the GH2 and 100-300mm, I've been dreading checking the pictures as I wasn't expected anything much usable due to the difficult shooting conditions as I was either shooting into the sun or the light was poor from the clouds, most of the planes were moving very quickly and the rain was coming and going. However I think the GH2 has done pretty well, I had the D700 and the 28-300mm (the longest I have in FX) plus the setup is weather sealed so I'd been expecting to use this combination but the Panasonic's 600mm reach was very much needed. These are all straight out of camera with a slight crop, will have a proper go with them next week when I have some time.

    Firstly the awesome Vulcan:

    http://johnmcl7.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Leuchars/i-czL6Qct/0/L/P1010144-L.jpg

    A Dutch F16:
    http://johnmcl7.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Leuchars/i-3vLq2Gj/0/L/P1010194-L.jpg

    A Belgian F16 who was the only plane I didn't catch in the air, he went up fairly suddenly while I was trying to get some lunch and I was too busy watching him to get the camera ready. The Dutch F16 pilot was impressive but the Belgian one was a step above:

    http://johnmcl7.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Leuchars/i-K79nCpn/0/L/P1010429-L.jpg

    This one is more a testament to the GH2's shutter which captured these two planes doing a high speed crossover, this was a single shot with no burst mode:
    http://johnmcl7.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Leuchars/i-K4pC4Bw/0/L/P1010337-L.jpg

    This is the French version of the Red Arrows:
    http://johnmcl7.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Leuchars/i-xsv6jLm/0/L/P1010420-L.jpg

    And the Red Arrows themselves:

    John - use the IMG tags to post as inline images :)

    1 and 4 are great but all very nice - oh and numbering them makes commenting easier ;)

    Nice set, John !

    1) we Belgians have ALWAYS been above the Dutch in the air !!!!!
    2) they are called 'Patrouille de France'

    I did post with the img tags initially but then decided that perhaps it was too many images so took the tags back out to play it safe

    Certainly the Belgian F16 was one of the highlights of the show, it almost looked like a model plain in the air it was so agile until of course it did one of its high speed passes and the massive roar of the jet engine showed it was no model. They're selling a video DVD with some in cockpit views and the Belgian F16 was one of those with a cockpit camera so will be ordering that.

    I did realise they were called Patrouille de France (we heard it many times!) but wasn't sure if people here would recognise the name but in hindsight I should have put their name in as they're obviously an incredibly skilled team as well.

    All very nice, gamma, though I find #1 a tad on the dark side.
    #2 is my favorite !

    Louise spotted this late visitor to the garden, he was resting on some old honeysuckle twigs.

    Used my G3 and 14-140, used the ETC zoom for #2 and #3, EXIF is intact.

    That's great Mark. Sometimes the actual plant can look a bit bland but the Honeysuckle branches look nice and detailed as well as the dragonfly. Nice DOF..a bit more would have been nicer for me but that's being picky as the dragonfly stands out OK.

    Thanks, TBH, the wind was blowing me off balance, so i was holding on to my stick and shooting one handed and not paying to much attention to my settings, if i had thought about it i would have pushed my aperture up to get larger DOF, next time. ;)

    Mark.


    Thanks Jim, i have been trying to get a shot of a DF all summer, i had given up until Louise called for me to come to the garden, i did get a shot in the spring of one in flight, but this is the first at rest :D

    I think that for most of us with these shots the concern is over missing the opportunity. I set my TZ10 to macro zoom..zoom to x3 and shove the camera as close as I can or until I get a focus. I use "P" and that seems to sort everything out...unless I've just been lucky.

    In most cases you get what you get in my experience. Mostly it works out and sometimes you get an exceptional shot....

    Here's the next bunch of pics from my holiday in Russia.
    The last few days, we were with family and friends in the city of Lipetsk, and here's an impression.

    All shot with the G1. Different lenses and PP techniques.

    Did you know that using the 3X zoom in macro zoom mode uses digital zoom and degrades your image, i keep the camera at the wide end and just get closer, but it has to be said, the TZ10, TZ9 in my case has a remarkable macro mode :thumbsup:

    Guys,

    I updated my 100-300 firmware and now i think it has done something to the lens OIS, after the update i tested the lens with some video clips to see how the update had improved things, first thing i noticed was the OIS was not as effective as it was before the update, it was very jerky, i checked that the OIS was actually on, it was, so today i have just done some more tests, i have now discovered the OIS was off even when the icon was showing it as on, so i turned the lens switch off and the icon went red, turned the switch on and the icon stayed red, powered the camera down and reset it, now the OIS icon is showing the OIS as on and active, the OIS was working as it should, but i couldn't turn the OIS off, the switch on the lens wasn't making any difference at all, on or off the OIS stayed on in video or stills mode, after repeated power downs and resets the lens OIS works one minute and not the next, one minute the lens switch works then it doesn't, i do not believe the switch is the problem, i believe it is the firmware, everything was perfect before the firmware update, i will test the lens on another body later.

    Mark.
