Vacation Time




So after about 5 years marriage and putting off a real vacation either because there is no money or time for it, the time has come. We've taken little trips to vegas, camping and other local weekend mini vacations to keep us sane during this last few years, but the truth is that I've never really taken a full 8 day Vacation before and because there are so many places that we've never been to before it was hard to decide where to go, so we decided to try a Mexican Riviera cruise. 8 days on board the Carnival Splendor a 3,006-passenger vessel "the largest “Fun Ship” ever constructed" or at least as of July 2008 when it was constructed. The Ship will take us to Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo, all places i've never visited before, so it should be fun. So of course I'm taking my camera or cameras with me. The problem is I wanna take everything but I know i can't so I have to choose, Here is what i have so far.



Will it all fit on that bag? I don't know, I got a few other bags and i will be trying to see which one i like the best, this one is made by canon and I like that its not too big or too small it feels just right. This is what I'm taking with me:

5D MK2
7D
70-200mm f2.8
16-35mm f2.8
50mm f1.2
17mm tilt shift
28-135mm f3.5
2x extender
4x canon Batteries + charger
1x 32gb CF card
2x 16gb CF cards
Zacuto's Z-Finder
Timer remote control
Small Manfroto tripod
CF card reader
15" Macbook pro
500gb My Passport WD external drive
Lens Cleaning Kit
and a Panasonic DMC-TS1 12 mega pixel point and shoot waterproof camera for underwater shots.
So of course not all this stuff will fit on that little bag but I'll find a way to put all the big stuff on the rest of the luggage.
Will be learning to shoot with the new 7D and will be trying to figure out how to use the timer remote for some timelapses.

The rest of the Shop stays here working hard to get your orders out and the only thing that will not be happening while I'm gone are the Flip hacks, if you plan to send your camera in, you might wanna wait for a few days so it doesn't sit here for a whole week. I hacked all the cameras that i was able to so you guys don't have to wait a whole week for my return. Will try and post some pictures and maybe upload if possible short clips of the trip.

Update, here is a video shot during my vacation:

Why isn't there a Jag35 in the list? Are you not taking any Jag35 adapters with? Certainly you are!

The idea is to be productive on my free time, and i know how to use a jag35 35mm adapter, DSLR's on the other hand i've owned for a few months and i have been able to really learn how to get the most of them, so i figure that i use my vacation time to learn as much, going good so far, done first slow motion and timelapses in the past 2 days, will upload soon.
