just wondering where i would find todays buckley wood hft recoilling results.many thanks damian (dartmoor)
They tend to get sent out on email, but i'll post them here as soon as I get them
Cheers to Roz and Paul and the rest of the Buckley/Swefta crew for another good shoot. Despite some of them turning into merry men wearing green, they can stil put on a course to test you mentally (or make you go mental) and master it as well...
Seconded. I may only have been spectating today, but i could see the effect the wind was having.
Ta daz, but the link says the session has expired...
A couple of score cards were added up wrongly so I have had to correct the score sheets. Rob will get a new set in the morning as I am going to bed now. Nite nite everyone.

no worries daz, i'm sure it's something that needs ticking somewhere... those shots are nice
Cheers mate. I think i will need to buy an IS lens when funds allow, i must of dumped at least 20 shots that showed wobble
try and keep the rule of thumb of 1/focal length in mind... so if your using 300mm then you should be faster than 1/300th... obviously that becomes tricky depending on light, and the f-stop (which yours will be f5.6 or higher at 300mm)... so the only option is to hold it steadier, use a mono-pod or tripod perhaps, or bump the ISO, which gives you more noise (especially if you happen to under expose and need to push it back)
IS gives you perhaps 1-2 stops, but I find that i still like to stick to the rule of thumb even for IS if i want it super sharp.
for the web though, you can get away with murder (i do )
Monopod/tripod is on order.
What i should have done was to lean on the trees or get a little closer.
I can see another book being written about excuses for a bad shot with the camera??
Reply sent to pm DazF! Hope it is helpful.
I delete as many pics as I keep, Robs advice re speed and focal length is sensible but as he says you can get away with murder for the web. Just beware if someone wants a high res copy and it is all blury at full size.......
I like the pics, especially the landscapes!
Many thanks James.
