Apple iPhone commercial

One of the most popular “Bird” applications for the iPhone was featured in the latest Apple iPhone commercial. iBird Plus, from the folks over at Whatbird.com, has used over 300 of my bird photographs in the application. If you have an iPhone I highly encourage you to purchase the App!! I was hoping they’d show one of my photos in the commercial but they just showed the illustration and played the song of a Red-faced Warbler.

Here is a link to the commercial.

Lenovo X300, Canon 10-22mm, Tamrac Adventure9

In preparation for our upcoming trip to the Galapagos I ordered a few new toys: Lenovo X300 Laptop, Canon 10-22mm Lens and the Tamrac Adventure 9 Backpack.

The all new Lenovo X300 is the rival to the new Macbook Air. I opted for the Lenovo vs. the Air since all the Adobe software I own runs on Windows. There are also 3 USB ports compared to the single port on the Air. Fully loaded the Lenovo was a better deal as well for a few hundred bucks less. I ordered with 3GB RAM and the 64GB solid-state hard drive. It comes in at 0.73″ thick and only 2.9lbs.







Also picked up the Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens for panoramic shots. With the 1.6x digital crop factor on the 30D/40D bodies the effective focal length is 16mm-35mm. It was either that or drop a few thousand on a full-frame 5D or 1DsMkIII!

The backpack provides ample room for extra lenses, bodies, laptop, bottles of water and other necessities while hiking in the Galapagos.
