What you need to know to photograph an airshow

Here's how to capture aerial acrobatics -- from choosing the right lens to setting up your digital camera.

Find a Good Spot



Make sure you know the airshow's schedule--some schedule aerobatic shows throughout the day, while others feature mostly static displays and ground events, but end with a single aerobatic show. Before the show you want to see, stake out a good spot.

What's good? Generally, the more centrally you can position yourself along the viewing area, the better. That's where the announcer booth is located, and where the aircraft will tend to do their most interesting stuff. It’s also where the biggest crowd will form, so you might need to pick a spot early.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
