I faved Airplane Prop + CMOS Rolling Shutter = WTF
by sorenragsdale
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/5S6rKwAn iPhone’s CMOS camera has no shutter, and reads the pixel values off in rows rather than all at once.  In this photo the propeller spins about 5 times while the photo is taken, producing a strange effect.

Note from the photographer: “We take a lot of aviation type pictures during our normal day, from crappy workmanship we find in planes to cool flying shoots. This prop shot was way different that any other prop we have shot. If you watch the prop through the camera the blades spun down and came off the prop at the 6 oclock postion, then looked like they bounced off the ramp and reattached at 9 oclock. Very weird, Hope next week we can recreate with a better camera and some video. Aircraft was a Yak TD with a M-14 engine idleing at 1000 RPM, Yes we had someone in the seat and brakes were set. Should of had chocks too. As for Photo shop, if I had those skills I would not be working on communist iron.”

I couldn’t come up with any good punny titles re: my wallet and El Segundo, nor any good variants of “A Screaming Comes Across the Sky.” 

Maybe later… -

I faved Warehouses, Phoenix
by rjseg1
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/dNauY7Taking photographs from commercial airliners is problematic. At cruising altitude haze obscures much of the detail in the ground below. The windows are small (would love to fly on a 787 with the larger windows - once they fix all the problems) and sometimes cloudy. At lower altitudes haze isn’t as much of a problem, but the speed of the plane can cause the foreground to blur (so you have to shoot with a fast shutter speed), and technically you shouldn’t even be using electronic devices, which I assume includes digital cameras. Some of the best opportunities come at the lower levels when the plane makes a big banking turn. This eliminates the haze problem and slows the speed of the plane relative to the ground, diminishing the blur. It also allows you to shoot straight through the window rather than at an obscure angle.
