More  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Before I started aviation photography, I just made prints and let them in the folder, or sometimes I put them in an album.

Then, I discovered those flying metal tubes - the beginning of the end of my full wallet.

First, a flatbed scanner. Needless to say: only rejections, and I was unhappy with the scan quality. Next thing was a new camera. I had an EOS RT and bouth an EOS 30. Some weeks later I switched to slides and bought a Minolta Dual Scan II slide scanner. The first big improvement in scan quality!!

One year later, I switched again, this time to digital: I got a Sony F707 with a Olympus B300 TC. Again one year later (more or less), I completly switched to digital, when I bought a 2nd hand EOS D60 some weeks back.

Next thing will be a new lens. The new laptop with at least 3000GB HD (  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) is of course also on the shopping list.

But I'm sure, there are more manicas out there  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The B300 is indeed a good choice. I also bought the Sony 1.7x TC, which has the advantage of having more zoom range, i.e. you can use more or less 150-323mm range. The B300 - having a diameter of only 55mm - shows vignetting under ~220mm or so.

I then sold the B300.

Oh hell, after the first $5000.oo of camera equipment you stop counting what it is worth.

After the first $10,000.oo of camera equipment you don't tell you wife what you bought.

After the first $20,000.oo of camera equipment you end up telling the divorce lawyers under division of property requirements.

Been there..... done that..... no more wife..... now it's my business only and I'm a whole lot happier.
