Have you guys who have mentioned Hasselblad looked at the Leica S or S2? Is there some overriding factor that keeps it from being considered, like maybe lack of long lenses? (I know nothing about it or its system, I'm just curious...)

Hi Ernie,

Leica has long been an esoteric piece of equipment. Obviously a very fine one, but flexibility in lensing and durability are issues, along with pricing in the stratosphere. They did offer to come to ISAP 2013, but it was kind of a non-starter because they have a policy of not paying for any type of sponsorship. My feeling was that I should call them and tell them that I'd like their entire system, but I have a policy about not paying for photographic gear!

Hi Jan Arie,

Yup, so far so good. HQ had 85 mph straight line winds a few minutes ago. No rotation, lot's of rain. Bryan Martin just texted me to tell me that HQ survived. We're not out of the woods yet, but I think we'll be fine.

We're on the back side of the weather. Apparently Butch's air conditioner compressor unit took flight across KTKI this afternoon, along with various hangar sheet metal pieces. Bryan tells me that HQ was unscathed. If the sky clears I'll be shooting aerials all day tomorrow, so I'll look it over myself.

HOU is a definite no go this week, WX is too iffy down there. I was awarded 13 new projects from one commercial real estate client, seven from a commercial builder, asked to quote four projects for an architect that I've shot for for 30 years, and got four additional aerial projects for tomorrow.......whew!

edit: Just heard the Coroner say that in addition to 51 souls, they are expecting 40 more deceased, mostly children. Very sad day here...OK and TX have very similar values, we are only separated by state lines.


I read tonight that they have miss-counted and it now stands at 24, still very sad for them. I will keep them all in my prayers...

I think it was closer to 1500', though they didn't provide me an altimeter I could see from the rear seat of the T-6.

Glad you made it home safe, Jay.

By the way, I've got some duck lips shots of John, too.
