    The subject matter doesn't really affect the experiment. You can answer your question for yourself quite easily by photographing e.g. a newspaper page. Why don't you?

    Cheers,

    Ah but Roger, if we all answered our own questions, there would be no need for forums or experts. ;-)

    Plus it may make someone think about the answers to questions they had not realised needed(?) asking. If you see what I mean...

    Well, in those cases when you can quite quickly and easily determine the answer for yourself, THERE ISN'T.

    You could perform a useful service by doing a simple experiment and posting your results here. Why don't you?

    Cheers,

    Yeah, can't be any worse than my test of an '80s Soligor on a modern CSC. :eek:

    Shame the sample pics are on Photobucket and therefore now invisible!

    You won't get a blurry photo of a jet. You will hear it leaving.

    If they are low flying you don't hear them coming then they are gone in a flash. I reckon it would take a lot of hands on research to find a good position and a lot of practice/luck to get a panning shot.

    Probably the best chance is an "environmental shot" where you fix the camera with a wide angle of view and rely on a short exposure time, fast reactions and burst speed to catch the jet as it goes past.

    I really need to get over this fear of cranking the ISO. Thanks for the good advice chaps.

    Pete - type Mach Loop into Flickr - lots of pics of *very* low flying fighters and things.

    Some quick reflexes there. I couldn't pan that quick with a 500 mm, a couple of which featured in my short browse.
