    Afternoon all, I'm going up to the airport for the day tomorrow. It's due to be warm again, about 28 degrees, so i think there might be some heat haze. Anybody got any tips on how to set my camera up? As i'm still learning about this whole aviation photography thing.

    At the moment i have it on the highest picture size available.

    ISO 100

    Sharpness set to normal

    Any other ways i can try to get some nice sharp images?

    Thanks in advance

    Tom

    Without knowing your camera this is pointless. And no camera setting can avoid heat haze.

      I know you can't avoid it, I just asked if there was a way to make the effects of it less noticeable when taking the photo. Cheers for the contribution though, Helpfull.

          As I said, without knowing your camera, and you did not tell us that yet, it is impossible to give adivce.

                  If his camera is a wornout as my keyboard at work, then he would probably only see parts of the pictures with 30% staying black.

                    The only advice I can really give is to keep your focal lengths down and avoid shooting across tarmac and other surfaces that reflect heat.

                      Heat haze is hard 2 fight... Avoiding pavement is helpfull, also Aircraft not in the first few meters of earth are less effected, so fly by shots might not have as much haze. Also if it's humid, and there is alot of haze from that, a boost in contrast can cut thru a bit.... UV filters can help with that also....a

                        Really the only way to minimise it (besides picking the right location) is to try and take full frame shots (i.e. no cropping required), that way when resized the bumps will smooth out a little, probably not by much though.

                        Also try setting sharpness on +2
