You'll love the email I included.

Your hard drive is going to fail. It is not a question of "if" it will fail, but "when" it is going to happen. If your drive failed right now, what would you lose?
 
This topic is especially hot to me as I'm dealing with a partially failed SSD drive right now (bad block). While this problem has cost me a LOT of time this week (my most precious resource), I have not lost any data or files.
 
I talk briefly about my backup strategy on my Digital Workflow page. There are many good ways to store copies of your data (including some online services), but the device I use most (and the device that saved me this time) is the Western Digital 1TB My Passport Essential SE Portable USB 2.0 Hard Drive (B&H).
 
I have 10 of these in my current backup rotation (along with many additional small capacity drives). They are very small (easy to take off site) and have given me no problems to date. The autorun software is a pain, but there are fixes available for this. I just turned off autorun.
 
This is the second primary drive failure I have experienced in less than two years. Backup what you care about!

I've used tripods unconventionally for video support, but here is a great HDSLR tripod application I have not tried to date:

I added a Packing for a Landscape Photography Trip page to the tips section of the site.
 
Posting the American Southwest Photo Gallery generated some interest in what gear I took with me, so I'm sharing this along with the American Southest Grand Tour itinerary I followed.

As I mentioned in the Air Show Pictures and Photography Tips, a high-mileage 1Ds Mark III was DOA at a distant event I was attending. Had I not taken a second camera, I would have no pictures from my 10 travel hour trip.
 
If you do not have a second camera body and lenses (or third if you shoot with two at a time), give consideration to buying or renting them for your next big event/vacation. And if renting, remember that summer is the busy season for the photography gear rental season. Roger at LensRentals.com recently noted on his site that reservations are an important step to insure you get the gear you want when you want it.
 
Summer vacations are often a great time to try out that new piece of gear you've been eyeing up. New gear adds fun to an already fun time.

Maybe its my guy-perspective, but ... who doesn't love speed, power and precision? Spring and summer mean air show season and air shows are filled with speed, power and precision. So, today I bring you a gallery of Air Show Pictures and Photography Tips. The air show photography tips are below most pictures in this gallery.
