Passing of a Legend

1958 - 2009

1958 - 2009

Michael Jackson has been a pure legend to me. The King of Pop.

I’ve always said, if there was one artist that I would LOVE to see perform live, that would be Michael Jackson. Unfotunately, that will never happen now, and we’ll only be able to live through his music. If every wedding I goto plays his song once during the receptions, I’ll be a happy man.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” - Michael Jackson.

TAP Airbus A310 Low Pass

First, this video link is from Stage6 which is a much better version of YouTube. The quality by far exceeds that of YouTube, but you will have to have a divx encoder to view the file (you should have it installed, but if not, let your browser install it for you!).

About this clip:

The pilot on this great performance flight was Cap. César Brito no less than the TAP Airbus A310 fleet last Chief Pilot…this awesome pilot have 4,000 hours on the A310 and TAP wanted to pay the best tribute for almost 20 years of service in TAP without an accident. The airplane involved was CS-TEI and the co-pilot of that flight was Vitor Pereira. Has you know, from November on TAP will start to receive 5 brand new A330-200 fresh from the factory.
This incredible performance shows the great pilots TAP have during all these years, just to remind you in early 60’s the famous Capt. Marcelino passed UNDER Tagus bridge with a Boeing 707!!!

I wouldn’t think about doing this with Cessna, so I can’t believe what was going thru his mind thinking of doing this with a A310.

Canon 1D Mark III

Drool. Yes, all over my keyboard.

Canon ‘pre-released today that their new d-SLR camera is indeed the Canon 1D Mark III (thats three!). Not all the specs are fully released yet, but will be as soon as PMA gets on its way in a few days time.

So you look at the specs and like most people laugh at the 10 mega pixels? Need I mention the nice things like, 10 FRAME PER SECOND, DUAL Digic 3 Processor. What the heck does that mean? This beast of a camera can capture and process over 100 Megapixels of image data per second. Chew on that Nikonians. Images are finally also 14bits compared to 12bit on previous cameras (colour depth of up to 16,384 tones per pixel, compared to 4,096 tones from 12 bit images).

I could go on, but I’m only making myself jealous. More details at DPreview.com.

New Years Resolution

I love it. I came across What The Duck recently, and it has to be one of my favorite comics now. Photography and technology. Love it!

New Site

I’ve had almost enough of blogger, so I finally made the switch to wordpress. It’ll take a bit to get setup, but hopefully this will work out much better.
