As the event is open to the public today and tomorrow (Aug 14 and 15, respectively), here are some tips to help you get the most of your time in the sun (and quite possibly sand in your face and lenses) All images you see below were shot with just one lens: EF70-200 mm on EOS 5D Mk II. While the F16 and Sukhoi required a balance of fast shutter speeds and good hand-holding skill, helicopters on the other hand require a much slower shutter speed. Set your dSLR to Tv mode and lock shutter speed to 1/100—1/125 to give the blades a sense of motion. The EF100-400mm would have brought me a lot nearer to the action but two reasons I thought changed my mind: Image Quality and dust. Remember to have fun!
