Unique angle and great framing. Also just enough blur to show motion on the blades...

Can't see the exif data - which lens and what settings?

Very cool! Not at all what I expected, it's actually much more interesting. These aircraft are near and dear to my heart because I live in the middle of a national forest and fires are common.

Thanks Mole, DA*300, F8, 1/1000 sec, ISO400, and not really happy with the final image quality, still having trouble reducing the file size without loosing clarity and sharpness.

Thanks Harriet, it, and a similar unit do a fantastic job when they are needed.

Thanks Lou,

Hi quinton, I believe the company that owns this one bought at an " army surplus" type sale, you may have had a hand on this one!
