I see these videos on Youtube, and I wondered, how did they do it? Adrenaline going, you got 15 seconds, and you get a blurry picture under bad conditions.
I had that chance today. I had to go to the car, between our manufacturing buildings, and just then a propeller airplane was flying unusually low. I had seconds to think about it, and pulled my cell phone out. I clicked the photo button to "on", aimed into the bright sunny sky, couldn't see a thing when I looked up, and so I just guessed at it. It was almost past me (I could hear it) when I snapped the button. I thought, OK, no dice. I got nothing. Bummer. I missed my chance to take a picture of an "IFO". Then I went inside, opened up the photos inside - when I could get my vision back (sun blinded for a minute) - and this is what I got.
Just curious if anyone else wants to take a try at "How fast could you react and take a picture of a flying saucer?"
