Outing – Saturday, December 8

There is a change to Saturday’s outing. It is being held on Saturday, December 8, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. –  12:00 p.m. at Riley’s Greenhouses on Bath Road in  Kingston.

Camera: I have two Canon camera's, a 5D Mark II and a Rebel S1. The 5D shoots full frame and the S1 is a smaller, much lighter camera and is a great travel companion. I have three lenses, two L series (24-105 and 70-300)
