    I'd like to see that mate:laugh: doubt it though. Really good photographs john, Can see you know your stuff. I've had my mated D100 for months now. Its got loads of kit with it, flash gun, battery pack lenses light meter, left to him by his grandad. He just cant seem to part with it but it's a real waste has he has no interest in cameras.

    His kids are monsters:laugh: broke his normal charger and lost the battery chamber cover messing about with it. Thankfully he has the MB-D100 battery grib jobby. But it kills batteries (alkalines) so i've not tried it too much. I got an ansman charger the other day so i'll have a play about with it when a plane flys over:laugh:

    Such a shame its going to waste though

    Give his kids a few secondhand PC/Gameboy games and keep the camera. :smashin: Posession is 9/10ths of the law eh? I'm sure you can swap something you have buried which is of no use to you for it..mmmmm.

    Thanks for the praise on those pics, but I must say its all about having the correct tools. I've been taking pics at airshows for too many years that I care to remember, never got a decent one, always worried about using too much film/developing etc.
    I've only had the 300D since May, and learnt more about photography in 3 months than the last 30 years.. :blush:
    Been averaging 400 shots per airshow, maybe 25 to 30 REALLY good uns out of that, a tweak with Photoshop, and maybe 10 or so good enough to upload to A.net.....Wonderful fun.
    Roll on Winter...get back into the AV/HiFi groove then eh?... :rolleyes:

    Nice pictures John, but just think how much better they would have been if you'd used a D70. ;)
