Canon Announces 50D

Canon's new EOS 50D bridges the gap between the novice and the seasoned pro with a perfect combination of high-speed and quality. It features an APS-C sized 15.1-megapixel CMOS sensor for tremendous images, new DIGIC 4 Image Processor for fine detail and superior color reproduction, and improved ISO capabilities up to 12800 for uncompromised shooting even in the dimmest situations. It features a refined 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots) monitor, supercharged Live View Function with Face Detection Live mode, plus a number of new automatic Image Correction settings and HDMI output for viewing images on an HDTV. Pick up the EOS 50D and you'll experience true digital inspiration!

I've already sent off an email to my contact at Canon requesting a review unit.

Nellis Spotting with Allen

Nellis Spotting with _Allen_, originally uploaded by planephotoman.

Here I am shooting out at Nellis AFB. It was so hot out there on this day, the towel over my head really helped by keeping the sun from burning the top of my head.

Good times where had by all. Thanks to Paul for the photo.

Travel - Is it for you?

I am a lover of traveling. It does not matter if I'm going 100 miles or half way around the world. The idea of seeing something different and experiencing different cultures is exciting to me.

I've actually met people that say to me "I have no interest in traveling outside the USA" ... frankly I cannot understand this. The USA is my home, I love the USA, I've served my country in the US Military .... but I certainly realize that the USA is a very small part of this rotating blue/green sphere that we call earth and I want to explore more of it. And as a photographer it's even more exciting to discover new places and capture them through the camera.

If you are one of those people that think that traveling outside the USA (or whatever country you live in) does not interest you, have a look at this site or any of the thousands more like it and see if any of the photos cultivate a desire in you to travel and see new things.
