    Good stuff, Karl. The Sally B shots are real nice (with some Sepia, it might look really vintage). The harvards are nice too. I don't know what, if any setting were different with your Harvard shots, but that first one almost looks like it was shot with Kodachrome. Neat!

    IIRC correctly the Fuji cameras have a Fuji film setting as one of the options

    Hi Karl,

    The pics look pretty good to me. I usually came home with tons of pics that were 99% sky with a small dot for the aircraft!

    I miss visiting Duxford - we used to live just 30 mins from the place so I was a regular. How's the Blenheim coming along? I can't wait to see her fly in MkI configuration!

    Cheers,
    B-N

    Good stuff Karl, and you've done more than me. I still haven't tried my S1000 on ground to air, and need to convert my old photographer's brain away from 35mm SLR use !

    Wow, they've done a lot to that Blenheim since last year when I saw it.
