my Gear

my current gear
I started aviation photography as a teenager using the Practika film camera system, as digital evolved I purchased a Canon D30 DSLR and then progressed to the Canon 350D. Sony a new player in the DSLR world attracted me with the their well priced range but I found very quickly that the autofocus capability was not really good enough for aviation photography, so I then progressed onto Nikon which I still use to this day. The first Nikon DSLR I owned was the Nikon D300 a pro spec DSLR, this camera certainly improved my skills as an aviation photographer. I then progressed up the range of initially DX cameras before finally being tempted over to the FX world with the Nikon D610 which offered dar superior image quality over the DX range. Then Nikon released the D500, a pro specced DX camera which shared technology with its big brother the D5, this was a camera I had to try. I have only had the D500 for a few months and with Covid kicking in and with airshows being cancelled in the UK I have not actually used it in anger as yet.
