Goodevening,

Been to the airport today, determined to return with some nice panningshots. It was pretty quiet at the runway, leaving not too many opportunities. Here's the best result :arrow:



1/40s f/2.8 at 24.1mm (equals 144mm -> 35mm equiv.) iso80

1024x728 @ http://www.pbase.com/tvpopta/image/45918373/original

I have had it with many panningshots that some sort of gradual blur occurs. I suspect the quick changing angle to the subject of causing it. Ofcourse it's best to have the front section sharp; Anybody got an idea how to control this?

Cheers! GB

Nice panning shot. I plan on trying some later this year when the fire bombers start flying out of a small airport near my home.

You could try a smaller aperture for better DOF, try shooting at f/4-f/5.6 (that's the 'sweet spot' for many lens - i.e. less chromatic abberation, more sharpnessand better DOF). Regarding the tilting motionof the subject, I suspect that's one of the reasons it comes blurry, the OIS can't compensate for subject movement. Try shooting cars when panning and see what you come up with.

Cheerz!

Thanks;

I thought about a smaller aperture too; I found a shot of simmilar values exept smaller aperture, but didn't founddifferences; For the blur, I think a greater subject distance would help (less tilting). I think I'll stick to aircraft
