As well as my usual DSLR, I took my old film SLR to the Warbirds Downunder air show. I wanted to test the old camera and myself. I missed the first shot (forgot to wind on the film) but soon got back into the rhythm.

I found it interesting how much lens quality affected image grain. However, it looks like this might have been taken in the days when these fine old airliners were earning their keep. It was also noteworthy that I exercised a lot more care, before pressing the shutter release, than I do with the DSLR.

Taken with Pentax ME Super and Sigma F5.6 400mm mirror lens on Ilford FP4 Plus film.

Thanks Peter. I also don't know much about aircraft. I just enjoy seeing the older birds flying. And they make a great change of pace for someone who normally chases insects around the garden with a camera.
