Re: T7i - Telephoto kit lens of bad quality

We learn how to do it & practice until we get decent at it before introducing more difficult conditions. As conditions go down hill so does the keeper rate. On 1 forum I belong to a very skilled aviation photographer in Australia is happy with a 1% keeper rate but the photos he puts on line are exceptional.

You do realize cicopo is shooting model RC airplanes and not full size airplanes?  RC is extremely difficult to do as well as he does it.  Plus he has a lot better "L" lens.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Re: T7i - Telephoto kit lens of bad quality

I shoot both types & have a full scale air show coming up in 3 or 4 weeks. R/C is much harder but gives me a lot more practice. I can use higher shutter speeds with the R/C engines but they are also much closer so my panning skills need to be very smooth. Either way practice has a lot to do with results. Better lenses are always a good thing but knowing what settings to use is still very important & I've done full scale with very good results with a consumer grade superzoom. This is from the original 7D & Tamron 18-270. I used 1/320 sec for these. The first one of Skip Stewart was shot with the sun almost directly behind & slightly above him.
