Daai ou kan maar vlieg hoor - n paar keer was hy so laag, dat as die enjin sou oppak kon hy net uitspring en begin hardloop - hy sou dit gemaak het :lol:

Ja nee daar is die wat wil en die wat kan....toe ons nog in PE was het Stu Davidson altyd met die model vlieg klub se open day kom draai met sy vliegtuig, kan nie onthou of dit die Extra of die Edge 540 was nie. Maar hoe dit ook al sy, die ou was so laag inverted dat ek sy tail fin sou kon raak as ek op die runway was !

Hoendervleis :thumbup:

was gelukkig om Januarie saam met my swaer op te gaan in sy vliegtuig; ons het so paar rolle gedoen en 'n stall turn...was awesome, niks so lekker soos om die runway se zebra strepe 90 grade vanuit die lug te aanskou nie :thumbup:

Dankie, Mense!

Met my begroting het ons 'n Canon 1000D gekoop en ons is vreeslik opgewonde oor die kwaliteit foto's. Moet nog lense koop, so dit is maar waar my nuuskierigheid vandaan kom.

Know the feeling... I have a thing for the Canon 5D MII... but may well settle for the Canon G12!

That 5D is an amazing piece of kit...

My dream is to own a Nikon D3s, but that is just waaaay too expensive. I'm hoping to get myself into the position to buy a Nikon D7000 or D300s....

Then the fella next to me won :lol:

First sets up his tripod - I'd guess it cost him around R6k. Then he fits this lens to it that's justabout as big as a small car (R100k?), then clips a D3s to it (R50k). Then, just to add insult to injury - he pulls out ANOTHER D3s with a lensthat skriks vir niks :shock:

That must have been almost as impressive as the aeroplanes at the airshow. I am not really into photography, just want to take decent pictures.

Chris I spent 3 years of my life studying the art of photography... and still all the modern tools can be very baffling! You know us men hate to read the manual... or map for that matter!
