Frontline Flyover And 100 Megapixels

“Bunny” the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang headed out for a Frontline Friday Flyover. Joining up with the Air Museum’s World War II C-47 “What’s Up Doc?” and the P-63 Kingcobra “Pretty Polly” saluting the people on the frontlines fighting the pandemic.

Photographed with the Fujifilm GFX100 medium format camera system. A 100 megapixel camera capable of shooting five frames per second with continuous autofocus. I have found it fast handling, extremely versatile and producing incredible image quality.

Peaking Power Plant

Out shooting with the new Fujifilm GFX100 camera and GF45mm lens. A medium format 100 megapixel digital camera system. I am much more impressed with this camera system than I had expected. The image quality is extraordinary!

This is the “Peaking Power Plant” in the North end of Palm Springs California. It was designed and built to provide additional power during peak demand such as occurs in the high heat of the Summer.

Frontline Flyovers & Fujifilm GFX100

Honoring the people on the front lines of the pandemic, the Palm Springs Air Museum is doing flyovers over different facilities on Fridays through May. This is the three aircraft returning from the flight the other day. The World War II C-47 “What’s Up Doc”, the iconic “Red Tail” P-51 Mustang “Bunny”, and one of only of the very few flying in the entire world, the P-63 Kingcobra “Pretty Polly”.

Photographed with the new Fujifilm GFX100 medium format camera and the GF110mm lens. I am just now shooting with it for the first time. Faster operating than I had expected, it was able to capture aircraft in flight from the ground. This is a 100 megapixel camera still capable of shooting five frames per second with continuous auto-focusing. I will be shooting with it some more, so keep coming back to see what else I do with it. Thanks!

Go Hasselblad

To all my photographer buddies. I know many of you have asked me about my decision to go with Hasselblad as my camera of choice. Here is an opportunity for you to get into Hasselblad yourself at a huge savings. Hasselblad has certified pre-owned cameras with a warranty at an additional 20% discount right now. Take a look, it is really a move up! Here is the link to what is available, take a look! http://www.hasselbladbron.com/cpo.pdf

I also just found out that if you go through my very good friend Bob Wilde from Samy’s Camera there is no CA Sales Tax through next week. Bob is the Pro rep from Samy’s Camera. You can reach him at bwilde@samys.com.

Emily Made My Day!

Emily Made My Day!

Thank You Emily Hayworth for being so gorgeous and fun in front of my camera at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. Actually a borrowed camera, a Phase One IQ250 medium format 50 mpx digital system. It really does shoot beautifully! So Thanks to Morgan Acaldo from Phase One for handing over $40,000 or $50,000 of camera and lens on the spur of the moment! Great camera system, but Emily made my day!

Walk Around With Leica S2 And Nipple Alert!

Walk Around With Leica S2 And Nipple Alert!

A wonderful sculpture in front of the Elena Bulatova Gallery in Palm Springs. I did a walk of street photography yesterday with a Leica S2 Medium Format digital camera. For you photography folks out there, it is a 37.5 megapixel camera with the expected optics of Leica lenses. Certainly the most expensive camera I have ever used for street photography coming in at almost $30,000. Part of my week at the Palm Springs Photo Festival.

Nipple alert even on a sculpture, I only felt safe putting a censored version of this photograph on Facebook. Unfortunate because it really is a integral part of this art.
