I'm new to this whole DSLR, I had a bridge camera a while ago (fujifilm s5000) and always liked playing with settings to get my results and decided the new little one (now 8 and 1/2 months) was a good enough excuse to get a nice camera to capture lots of moments (well that was the reason/excuse to the Mrs anyways) hopefully ill capture some nice moments before she leaves home :p

anyways i have now had my Canon 1000D with kit lens and tamron zoom 70-300mm for a couple months and managed around 2k clicks of various things and thought id post some random pictures of various things for comments and tips and the like.... some have been posted in other threads on here for forgive me for that ;)

anyways here is a few

Police helicopter above my house (nothing to do with me, I promise..)

Hope that all worked... I didn't want to flood the thread with images so hope links are ok :)

Cheers in advance for any comments

Linked images at the right size is good.. some folk may not be persuaded to click links
You could link to the larger images
I found linking to the largest ( as you did) a little say, hard work waiting for them to load

Nice variety in your set - but tell me - how did you manage to capture a shot of that police helicopter as it was plummeting out of the Sky ? :D

But seriously - I guess the shutter speed selection was auto and hence too fast to show some rotor blur ?

i set the shutter speed to fastest camera would go to see if it could "freeze" the blades in place, 1/4000 did the trick, i did do this on purpose and hadn't thought it made the copter look as though it was falling :$ i do have some with blur, but don't believe they look as good, mainly because they are from directly below the 'copter instead of a side on shot as such...

Thanks for clearing that up :)

Of course now that you've spotted it you'll never be able to view that picture in the same way again - sorry :D

it now reminds me of the Mrs when she has a play on my remote control helicopter and i always tell her, when it gets too high, just ease off the throttle don't just stop it all of a sudden.... i bet you can guess what she always does regardless of my advice... looks like the picture, but wouldn't need such a fast shutter :p

LOL - As you've mentioned it - one of the thoughts that crossed my mind on first viewing it was - "is that an R/C Copter?"
