Looks like some nice shots, is there any chance of you posting them in a larger format? I'm looking at buying this camera, it is available for a very good price at the moment. Would be good to see some prorper results.

Nice shots, your lucky they were on easterlies, I had a difficult time with westerlies before.

Ahh lovely. Can anyone tell me anything about the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens? I can get a 350D, + that lense, for less than £900.

thanks guys.....if it was westerlies I'd probably have post-rotation photos only!!! wannabe.....if its the standard 75-300 you get with the EOS300 package (which I think it is.......) its not too bad, on an EOS300D that will get you out to 480mm I think the sensor is bigger on the 350D so the crop factor has come down a bit...not really sure on the specs tho......... I used that lense for all my airshows last year and was perfectly happy with it.........it just didnt have the reach that I want.

Most impressive. :) I can't say I'm too struck on the thick black border, though.

Looks like you got the measure of your new kit pretty quickly... But I don't think you got as good a tan at BRS as those of us who were at MAN did - what a difference 200 miles makes! :) Andy

PS: That FlyBe DHC8 pic is sooo wierd - first glance, I thought it was doing an ultra-low gear up flyby!

Do you have any examples of shots taken with it? I'm guessing the 300D willproduce roughly the same as the 350D....
