I'm Alexander and living near the Lake Constanz.
I'm 18 years old and interested in Aviation since I was a little child. My father is a frequent traveller so I had the chance to fly a lot around and I got interested in aviation. Over the years I found out more and more things about aviation and since spring 2015 I do planespotting. At the beginning I went to the airport every 2 or 3 months. These days I go to the airport about 2 times per month. I started with the old Canon 400D from my father until she thought she had to take a rest and don't wanted to take pictures any more (after a shutter counter round about 150,000).
So it was time for a new one and I choose the Canon EOS 700D. But after a few days the display of the camera was broken. After a check at Canon they told me my dealer sold me a camera imported from Asia and I can't use the warranty. So I had some trouble with my dealer and after a asking him over my lawyer I got the money back and now have a camera body with a broken display. But this took several months and I needed another Camera fast I decides to buy a new Camera - a Canon EOS 80D (and I love it).
I also upraged my lenses. Started with a Canon 17-85mm EF-S lens (with the 400D) it and a 70-300mm EF from Canon. Since Summer 2016 I have a Tamron 150-600mm lens. Furthermore I bought me the Sigma 18-300 lens to be more flexible and a Canon 10-18 for close up pictures and panoramic views.
Also sometimes I can lend a Canon 100-400 II lens. This is in my opinion one of the best lenses you can get.
Most of the times I go to my nearest and favoutite Airport - Friedrichshafen. It's a small regional airport in the south of Germany. You can find out more about it here. Sometimes I am at other airports, most often when I'm on holidays.
