I needed some contradiction to dark wintershots.
Sorting my few pictures I found this sequence.
Sorry this is not continous shooting, but five jumps five shots!
One of the reasons why I waited for the FZ5, I was used to "instant" release in former times.
This was 1/640 not enough - I know now.....

Greetings from my son and have a nice christmas!

Sven

Great sequence. Might as well have been burst mode. You have a quick finger if you had to reload for each of these. How old is your boy? I gotthree of them. 9, 3, and 5 mos. old.

Have a very merry Christmas, Sven. Froehliche Weihnachten!

:-)

Greatseries of shots Sven! Just curious though. Why did you not use the continous shooting? Merry Christmas to you and your family. Don

Nice series, I enjoy shots like that. When my son was very young he used to be convinced he could fly. He said all he would have to do is run really fast and let go of the sidewalk with his toes. An incident with an umbrella and the garage roof changed his mind.

thanks Don and tcook,

I hate continous shooting of moving objects because of the "blackout", you need a rds for this.
The FZ5 is fast enough to catch the right moment as you can see. I wanted to have 5 different phases of the flight and we needed 6 jumps.

Finn knows the umbrella trick, we have demonstrated him how fragile such an parachute is. He doesn't like pain......

Best wishes and
ein schoenes Weihnachtsfest!

Sven
