Sony Cybershot DSC-H9
... My wedding to Nikon and the D90 ~ review
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-85mm 1:3.5 - 5.6G ED Zoom.
Sing along "Just an all purpose ZOOM" ...
Into the creative mix came the ever popular Circular Polarizer, the HOYA PL-CIR 67mm.
Eye-Fi Pro X2 - Always in my D90 is this little gem, the WiFi enabled SD card. It is sure is convenient not having to do the typical (wired) camera to PC image file transfer.
Lexar Professional, 16GB SDHC Class 10. The fastest SD Card in the bag but no WiFi. Used when frames per second, speed is the priority such as the case in action photography.
New: Used Olympus OM-10 w/ Manual Adapter
Between what came out of the camera, what was worked on in the Photo-editor and to the final product is truly amazing in this mind's eye, a beginner. Yes "they" have said "Photoshop" is for the weak and we should be able to do it ALL within the camera. Although in my opinion I see comments like that which is often voiced by people who call themselves professionals as shortsighted and at worst condescending. Comments as such do nothing for the beginner and his or her confidence except to make them feel inadequate about their skill with the camera. Like the camera is only a tool and not a means to an end. Then so is post editing a tool to affect an outcome in an artists minds eye.

Ready for the first TEST Flight but unfortunately this test didn't go to plan. I found the bird needed a 3-Axis GYRO for stabilization. Current status: A work in progress until the electronic stabilization is purchased. An alternate option would be to install the Trex 450 Main Rotor with it's Fly-bar stabilization.
