Just a few choice pics of Chino 2004. I filled 3 64MB cards and a 16MB card. These are some of the best. What do you think?

My wife and I went there. We've just got to the gate when we found out that the front pouch on my backpack has been opened and that my digital camera was stolen. The incident totally ruined our day so we just went home without seeing the show. Some people...
Maybe tomorrow we'll go back. I just bought a new digital camera.
Looks fun. How many forum denizens did meet?

The original griffon for the spit 19 is in the museum and the five blade rotol is hanging on the hangar wall. Sometimes its just easier to install a reasonably fresh cut-down shackleton contra-prop unit than overhaul an old ww2 unit.

Wish I was there.

Gibbage1 what camera did you use? How many megapixles? I'm going to the Smithsonian Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center in September as part of my vacation. I have a Canon 3.5 megapixel at the moment and I don't know if that will cut it. I'm thinking about upgrading to a higher end camera. You're photos look really nice. I will be posting my photos here after my trip.

Anything 2 or greater is fine, unles your zoom is short and you will have to do some cropping. More important, esp. for indoor shooting of large objects, is a high output flash and good exposure control. Most point-n-shoot flashes just aren't strong enough for aircraft museums, unless they are very well lit, and/or you have a very fast lens.

Hmmm... I guess I will chance it then with the camera I have a Canon S230 Power Shot. I looked at a 5 megapixel just now and it was over $400.00. Thats more than I want to spend for something I won't use that often.
Come to think of it I paid $400.00 for this one when it first came out.

I have an old Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom I got off of E-bay for cheap. It works good. But the focus was causing me fits when the aircraft was flying by. I had to track them in the viewfinder for 1-2 seconds! If you going to take pics inside, I suggest a tripod. The critical thing about Digital camera's is holding it steady in low light area's. Outside its not a problem, but inside it is. If you move even SLIGHTLY, it blurs your pics. Flash will help this, but sometimes a flash is not desirable since it tends to kill shadows and details.

There are new camera's today with IS (Image stabilizing) like what you see in Cam Corders. They help GREATLY when zoomed in, or keeping it steady for low light.

I suggest looking at this camera. http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/s1is/index.html

3.2MB is fine. Thats what I have, and it makes 1980x1480 images. Printing them out on 8x6 and you cant tell they are digital! Most of the Images I post are resized down to 800x600 for web.

Also, a good OPTICAL zoom us a MUST. Leave digital zoom out as much as possible. It works, but your images get grainy because all it does is enlarge the pic. Lol. Its a cheat.

Here is a full size pic at 3MP

I also have a UV filter on my camera.

A long exposure on a tripod works great indoors with low light.

Thats it then I'll get the PowerShot S1 IS. I should be able to get some of my money back by selling my old PowerShot on e-Bay. I should also be able to find a used tripod on e-Bay as well. Thanks for the recommendation Gibbage1 I had never seen that model before. Amazon.com has a good price for it too.

I can't beleive how many features it has and still not be priced much over $400.00.

Ya. I got my cheap Olympus as a starter camera, and now I take pics of everything! Plus I got the tripod, some nice filters and a bunch of memory cards. The optical zoom is great for airshows. It really helps out. Its the differant between a speck in clouds, and a F4F doing a flyby.

Great Airshow!, I will be posting my pics soon, the Seafury in racing condition was impressive to watch, Mike Brown was the only pilot willing to push his plane near or at combat revs. At times he had as much speed built up as the Korean era jets. Oh and all those mustangs and the sound of multiple Merlins was too cool
