    Avalon Air Show Next Weekend In Oz With My D850.

    Hi
    Just getting my gear ready for next weekend’s Avalon Air Show in , last time I went was back in 2017 with my trusty D810 and Sigma Sports150-600mm with mixed results.
    This year I am taking my D850+battery grip with my newly required Nikon200-500mm which has better VR than my Sigma, I should “hmmmm” hopefully be getting better results this time as ive put a lot of effort into improving my technique and practicing my panning on moving cars, B.I.F and planes at Perth airport over the past two years.
    A lot to take in/learn, customised buttons from group to dynamic focus and single point focus, auto I.S.O, back button focus, moving focus point to frame some smoke trails, aperture priority for jets to shutter priority for prop and helicopters using a monopod.

    First up will be Saturday seating in the grandstand and Sunday down the front standing up close to the runway around 50m away, so as along that F-22A Raptor, F-35A Lightning don’t blow my ear drum out I should get some descent shots over the weekend.
