Fantastic. What f stop did you use to catch the propellers like that? I
sure love to see the circles and not stopped props, Tom in Pensacola

If you download the file and right click onto it and select properties you
will see the Exif data - this first file says f11.
But its not the f stop but the speed that is important to show the props. I
have a 'Herc' custom setting on the camera that sets the speed to 1/160th of
a second. That appears to be about right for me - any slower and the whole
aircraft goes fuzzy as you fight the weight of the lens.

Rusty,
I was typing and not thinking. I meant to ask about the shutter speed.
Duuuhhhh..... my bad.
The reason I asked is I tried to take some pictures of a P-51D doing a
pass and I lowered the shutter speed and got fabulous propeller spin
pictures. Problem is that the aircraft was fuzzy as you mentioned. I don't
remember what shutter speed I tried. Someone mentioned there are specific
speeds that are best for two bladed, three bladed and four bladed
propellers. Always something new to learn, Tom
