After getting a lot of interest in the photo's I took at the weekend at the first major airshow of the year with my phone I decided to go mad and buy myself a decent camera and zoom lens to get a bit more into it and kind of get back to when I used to do a lot of photography as a teenager. So, after a quick scout around the interwebs I was the proud owner of a second hand Canon EOS 300D and an additional 300mm telephoto lens! All seemed pretty good taking a few shots around the garden. So last night we did a quick trip up to the home of the quick reaction crews and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby and was rewarded with quite a few Typhoon's flying around and an unexpected display from Spitfire PS-915! Now those images had to be cleaned up somewhat as I found the images had what is best described as "spider web" markings at the edges. You can see them clearly on the original image... After doing some research this morning it turns out that's actually fungus growing on the CCD sensor! Pretty much a terminal diagnosis so that camera has now been returned and I've gone and bought a brand new Canon EOS 1300D which takes the same lenses I bought for the other camera. Now hoping the weather works out well enough for the RC airshow tomorrow - have my fingers crossed that's for sure!!
