View Full Version : End of the World this weekend

2011-05-20, 10:54 AM
Since the end of the world is upon us, there will be no need for your camera equipment. I can stop by and pick it up this evening so I can have fun with different equipment on this last night on our Earth.

I do have a question.... When the end is upon us, what do you feel will happen

1. SUN explodes
2. Liquifiction of the Earths crust
3. Mega Tsunami
4. Aliens
5. WW3
6. Other________

I need to know how it is ending so I can make sure I have the Proper F-Stop

(This is aviation related as it will involve every airborne aircraft to crash or be destroyed)

My fav has always been Sun Explodes... it would be a terrific sight for a few minutes before we are incinerated withing a billionth of a second.

A [few] yes... well, maybe you should stack about 100 welder's masks to be safe... And please, Fred, DO NOT look through the viewfinder while pointing it at the explosion, it may blind you within a second or two... errr, wait a second, you will be dead before that happens... so go ahead and peer through the viewfinder... heck use a 2400mm telescope if you like :tongue:

are you saying it is going to be worse than looking at the Sun thru the view finder at 300mm.... I did that before and it was not pleasant!

I go with Aliens - there have to be amazing angles to be had on shots of their craft - who knows - maybe even a special scheme or two - their equivalent of Blackberry and Yahoo on the side of a space ship must be pretty cool - I think you'll need at 10mm with fisheye though to capture the full size of the ship....
