  1. Well, if anyone wants to see, I can post the RAW pic with the copyright data. It’s posted on my Instagram as well.
  2. Good I’m glad it’s down!! I’d have liked to see it. Was it the American Airlines pic, or the China Air with vapor trails?
  3. Certainly not my picture. The lens I used was 100-400. Aperture doesn’t go up to 4.0
  4. I can’t find it. Show me... it’s my picture! I’ll post the raw file with the all the copyright data
  5. How interesting. Makes complete sense though.
  6. The aircraft are coming in perpendicular. I think ISO still confuses me. I just thought the lower the ISO, the less grain and cleaner the photo.
  7. As an example, I attached a photo that I blew up to cover my entire wall above my bed. Roughly 27”x18”
  8. Thank you!! Ironically, for this specific pic it was set at centre. I don’t even know why because I always use wide. The metadata for this pic is: ISO 50, f/4.0, 1/1000, 85mm prime.
  9. Thank you so much! I do watch Mark Galer. He’s a plethora of great information but I haven’t watched this video yet. I’ll be sure to check it out.
  10. I have tried flexible spot, but it can’t seem to keep up with the fast moving aircraft. It loses focus. The details for the photo I posted are: ISO 50, 85mm prime, f/4.0, 1,1000 sec.
  11. Thank you everyone!! I am going to try your tips. Honestly... the pic that I posted, the focus was set to centre. I don’t know why it was set that way, but I always use “wide”. And I do watch Mark Galer! He’s amazing and extremely helpful. I’ll look at that specific video. I’m thinking I should’ve went with the A7 III or A9 for its superior tracking. However, I wanted to print my photos large which I do, and I don’t think I would be able to do that with the 24mp sensor.
  12. Hello everyone, I'm new here and hoping someone can help me out with my question. I'm an aviation enthusiast and currently, it seems Nikon and Canon still dominate so it's hard to get advice because no one I know that spots aircraft uses a Sony Alpha system. My question is regarding the focus mode. I normally use the "wide area" with AF-C. A lot of pictures come out blurred, or the tail and cockpit of the aircraft are 'soft" while the main fuselage in focus. On the flip side, I got the most crisp photo using AF-C "Center" which I found to be odd. I attached that picture here, but I couldn't upload the full version as it's around 18MB. Does that seem odd that a "center" mode would give me a super crisp photo? Any advice is truly grateful. Thanks!!
