I decided to do a quick experiment using my Canon Powershot SD880 camera. I documented my flight from Burbank to Oakland this past Sunday night. I know its an everyday thing now since its been part of society since the early 20th century but its just crazy covering 350 miles in just an hour. The convenience of that versus driving a car for 5.5–6 hours between the Bay and LA.
Flight—its simply an amazing thing.
Here is the set that I compiled.
It’s been 3 hours since most of the great peeps here at Military Advantage have left for the Holiday Weekend. I was postponing my departure for home as I was waiting on my early Christmas gift to myself, a new backpack for my new toys. It finally came in 30 minutes ago, and have been playing around with its features and stuff.
Now, I’m contemplating to see if I can even bring it with me on my flight later tonight to Bob Hope/Burbank Airport. I usually carry my photo-gear in a Canon 2400 Gadget Bag along with my roll-a-way luggage. Seeing it first hand, this new backpack seems to be about the size of one carry-on. So yah, now… I don’t even know what to do. I can either just pack my 20D and the smaller lenses in the smaller bag; or risk it and use the new backpack, so I may bring my 70–200/2.8L IS along with me for the weekend. If I do do the latter and get rejected, I might have to just check-in my roll-a-way.
We’ll see… we will see. Anyways, Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!
