For some reason I took my Fuji X100s to work today. This week has been well trying and stressful so I thought if I took my X100s maybe I would get a few shots to break up my stress.

 

Well what do you know our Medevac bird broke down so they had to land a second bird on the parking lot! Now my X100s is not well suited for this since A: its a 35mm eqv lens and B: the continuous AF is ok not great. But I had a rare opportunity and would you guess it was my lunch break so I sat at the picnic table by the Helo pad and took a ton of shots. The X100s shoots at 6 fps and it really does shoot 6 fps so that helped some! Next I have never had good luck getting nice prop blur well thats because I am an aperture priority shooter most of the time and I forget to change to shutter priority not today I was ready.

 

So X100s set to shutter priority and I figured 1/125 would give me some blur yet still show the blades. 

Auto ISO set to max 800 but it was late in the evening so we had low light but it seems that I was able to stay at ISO 200-400 on all the shots.

AF-C was set with multi shot set to Hi or 6 FPS

Everything else was set to normal settings.

Last except for the wide shots these are all cropped to 125% yes the X100s does very well above 100%.

 

Wide angle to show the distance and the terrain:

This one shows the two birds in the same shot:

This one is a crop that might be close to 140% and I lost a bit of IQ but I love how I got all three blades in the shot:

Getting close to the ground then touchdown, and would you look at the last shot that is one really nice looking Chevy Silverado in the background! :P

Very nice, Jim!  You got the rotor effect just right with the applied shutter-speed.

 

Well done.
