    G'day all

    All across the world we have emergency flights to help take critical patients quickly to hospital - the other night I was close to one such Aussie hospital

    1) Chopper approaching the helipad

    I have not had the chance to see this but coming from a small town it is understandable.
    But I would have like these to be clearer as its looks like a lot of noise in both shots.
    And I can work out the the ID numbers of the chopper.
    But as horrible as this sounds I would love to see one but this would mean some one is in a bad way.
    So I am happy not having to see one on that point alone.

    G'day Arthur

    Yes - you're correct in that there's easily seen noise in both shots
    The thing that contually amazes me is the change from film days to these days > I was recently looking at some High Speed Ektachrome slides that I push-processed to 1600-ISO "way back when" and the grain was like the proverbial dogs' appendages - and here I/we are today shooting at ISO-3200 and higher, and thinking it's no big deal

    The other thing that excites me is the lenses of today - here I am shooting on a camera type not around in film camera days, with a lens that was unheard of back then too

    To have a camera today whose lens gives me an image equivalent to a film camera at 600mm, but this lens operates at [the unheard of] F2,8 maximum aperture blows my mind [well it used to ... I've become used to it these days]

    I took only a handful of shots during the film days and everything was like the point and shots ones of today.
    My father inlaw was a film buff and knew each setting to get a good clear shot.
    I bet If he was still around he could have said each setting your shots were on.

    Me on the other hand would be totally lost and I have said this many time.
    Its is that a person who grew up taking photo's with film are far better than those who like me have grown up with digital.
    I say this because we can move a dial and if its no good delete it.
    Do it on a film camera and you still pay.

    I have some shots from when I 1st started in this hobby and what I thought was so good then,
    Are today so far off the mark that its not funny.
    And for me I am just a hobbiest at best, but I still like to get good results.
    So I do my best and I do it for me and if its liked by other that okay.
