I've never actually tried going below the base ISO of 200, but maybe I should. I always have either too much light or not enough. It's never "just right". I'll try the shutter priority. The GEICO SkyTypers are in the show too, and they're usually the only propeller driven aircraft that will venture into my airspace.

My D90 has never been off of M

I always try to shoot at the lowest ISO possible. i really haven't look at the difference between low 1 .3 and .7 compared to 200 yet on the D90, but i have seen comparisons on the d3s and its stunning.

this was f5.6 iso 400 at 1/2500sec at 280mm on a D60

In my typical shooting, the lighting changes a lot from burst to burst (and often within a burst), so I rely on AE in some form.

I always laugh at this statement.


Your camera has a sophisticated meter for a reason. Use it, and it conditions or artistic purposes cause you to need to switch to manual mode, then do so. but just setting your camera in M and forgetting it is wasting alot of great tools on your camera.

Nothing remarkable yesterday, but today my step-son took my Tokina 100-300/4.0 to the air show, so these were taken with my Nikon 85/1.8. (No number 7s this time.)

Nice catch on a tight delta formation.
