AND good glass, it is more important than extreme amounts of megapixels.

 

Part of a phones problem, and probably the size of the sensor?

I worked in the Engineering dept. at Ikelite (underwater photography company) when I lived in Indianapolis (Klipsch Country). We studied the TI or Sony sensors in those cameras. YOU nailed it. The "normal lens" is about 4.8 mm, which is like a 28 mm lens on a full frame 35mm. Which means the sensor is about 6 x 4.5 mm for a diagonal of about 7.5mm. So YES, that small of a "well site" in the sensor for a 12 Megapixel total is VERY noisy. If they kept the pixel count down with the same noise reduction techniques we would have much better QUALITY images from cell phones (if we could hold them still enough) since the noise would be many f/stops less at high ISO (they go up to 3200 ISO) and are TOTALLY dependent on light INTENSITY for their image quality.

Take them in the afternoon sun for great lighting.

The Blues always make for good photo subjects.  Their "Noises" most definitely piss off some neighbors.  Others Embrace it!

I truly hope that you guys enjoyed the show.  

Since someone will probably ask about what they're seeing in the pic.  As you approach the speed of sound, air molecules build up on the leading edges and parts of the aircraft that are making it difficult for the air molecules to smoothly flow around them, so the molecules build up like a wall (think perpendicular) until they can slow enough to move past that wall of buildup. In this pic, the temp and humidity are such that you don't see the more common cloud of visible vapor, you see the light bending in the water immediately behind the wall.  Think of looking through a magnifying glass from a side view.  I take a lot of photos at air shows and this one was taken at San Francisco Fleet week some yeas ago.   I'm so fortunate the humidity is relatively low in my sound room ;)~

btw- If you see this phenomena on your speaker cones, you've turned it up too loud.

We're really near P'cola NAS.

 

Then you get an awful lot of free Air Shows during the week👊  I'd like to return for a week, maybe next year.

I was there circa 1984 and then on to Milton in 1985.

I'll make an attempt to redeem myself.  I took these F-35 pics at HILL AFB in Ogden UT June last year.

The F35s are tough little planes, but that F-22 is sexy like a Lambo.

Mid 90s had an apartment just east of the runway at the Daytona airport. After a weekend show an F-16 flew just enough away from the airport to be over me and Apollo out for a walk, he turned the nose straight up jammed the throttle and we felt the concussion as I saw the fireball get smaller then the sonic boom and couldn't even tell where that jet was then!

 

not my pics!

With kids the learning never stops, you never know what they are going to do next.

 

She is growing up, next is the boy thing, take your blood pressure medicine.

That is a cool pic, but I would think the car is quite the letdown after climbing out of a fighter jet.
