Thanks! The high plastic panel

The high plastic panel get in the way of shooting it down unless I shoot through the not-so-clean plastic panel. Hence, I have many birds eye view from top. It is unfortunate on the shooting but I want to be polite and not bring in a tripod as I run into elbow touching with others enjoying the train show.



and few shots shooting through the panel:





I am thinking that the live view in LCD in a Olympus gear with 410 and 510 may help better in lowering down my camera to get a lower angle of the train.

C&C for suggestions and your techniques of shooting moving model trains are highly appreciated. I use high ISO 1600 in most of the shots amd some in iso 800/400 in Av mode in f/2.0 with some at f/1.4 and f/1.8 trying out my luck in narrow DOF. And I did some shooting in f/8.0 and f/5.6 which prove to be too slow a shutter for the SR to work.

Thanks,
Hin

Thank you Pete and I like your signature in

"Pete - K100D - GX1L
=======================================
You know you got a pretty serious case of LBA when you end up buying the same lens twice..."

And you need to upgrade your signature with your recent upgrade to K100D or super. I find myself not only buying similar lens twice but 3+ times on the same lens with 2 identical and 3rd and probably 4th on the same focal length.

My problems is NOT exactly LBA but LBA in disguise as I have BBA with body buying addiction currently with film bodies in getting both body and lens together. Though I have strong interest in film, I don't need 6 different film bodies to use on b&w and slide films. I am so sick and I see little help in calming myself down. Please help me

Warmest,
Hin

Do these: (1) Close your ebay account, (2) stop looking at any market-place, (3) give all your money to your wife,
then focus what you already have, your incurable disease will get to a manageable level.
BTW I like these photos.

I have not found a cure and I would think about your suggestions but it is difficult to close one's ebay a/c especially in xmas season. Do you know any software that blocks you with a friendly reminder in making it difficult for you to bid and add things to watchlist. For marketplace, I can ask few of my friends (or the moderators) to ban me from PM capability. If moderators ban me in PM, that would for sure end all of my price lurking and checking.

Thanks for the thoughtful suggestions, I feel a bit better but I am NOT cured.

Warmest,
Hin
