New Camera, New Me - 11/30/19 @ KJFK

Hey party people! I recently purchased a brand new camera for Black Friday, the Canon EOS Rebel SL3. It features a 24.2 MP resolution, a whopping 14 MP more than my old Nikon D3000. It also has a superb autofocus system, making it much easier to take photos over long distances. It’s simply amazing to see how far I’ve come since I first went spotting(you can find the link at the bottom of the post). Without further ado, lets get into the photos.

757 😍, how beautiful. The VS livery on that A350 is pretty sweet though.

Stunning shots! With the Delta, I read it as “Delta one half” instead of “Delta 1 or 2”!😂

Amazing shots! I love the Air Italy shot, though I might just be biased since I flew on that flight. I also like the Virgin shot, what a beauty 😍. I’m excited to see your next spotting pics!
