Re: Northern Illinois Airshow

Looked like a great show! Sad I missed it. Any pics of the legacy with that sweet T45?!

Re: 2019 Canadian Forces CF-18 Hornet Demo Schedule

"SCHEDULE UPDATE: #Siouxfalls we’re coming to you this weekend for the Sioux Falls Air Show" from the CF-18 FB page.
Looks like the CF-18 will make it to the US this year!

sometimes I like to just put the camera down and experience the planes instead of chasing them through a viewfinder.
Thats definitely good to do time to time!

Re: 61st Annual City of Chicago Air & Water Show (2019)

I can tell you the 300mm lens will be a bit tough. Maybe for the formation stuff it'll be ok, but for solo jets they're pretty far out there for the most part (if you're at show center on the beach at least). The suns will be at your back the later the day gets but it can get hazy and the sun a bit ...

Ooooo love the Scooters. How awesome would it be if they got 3-4 Scooters up at once!? #wishfulthinking

Re: Renting... is it worth it?

I've rented things a few times. Like you said the cost usually isn't too awful and its a great way to see if its something you'd want to buy. If you have specific shot your really want (night show?) maybe try a prime 2.8 lens they're fun and usually tack sharp.
