Cameras and Flying

Wonderful storm here last night. Of course we were supposed to get 9-12 inches of snow and I think we got 1. There were some interesting pictures I wanted to take this morning – too bad I don’t have a camera yet.

Speaking of Camera… I’ve been researching digital cameras. I figure that I really need one for Japan in a month, so I just need to bite the bullet. My original search included these: Sony DSC-N2, Sony T-10, Sony T-30, Casio Exilim Z850, Casio Exilim Z1000, and the Canon Powershot SD630. After some research (pretty much visiting, I came to the conclusion that the Z850 would be the best for my use. Unfortunately, it’s not carried at most online retailers anymore, and after my experience with a Lower New-York/Jersey based store last year, I refuse to purchase anything from those cities/states. I found a local camera store, Porter’s Camera which had a reasonable selection. They introduced a few more cameras that I will be researching shortly.

On another note, I have started ground school with Iowa Flight Training. I’m excited to learn and get up in the air this April. Thankfully, Rockwell Collins will be helping me out with some of the expenses. (another reason why you should come work here)

I am also adding content to my research page today.
