  • You could just get a cold shoe adapter and clip it on to protect it. Or you could get a shoe mount stand: https://www.adorama.com/fplfxsls.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw682TBhATEiwA9crl33XvBQaiF0hj-DFitkbv78b ...
  • If you're shooting baby ball pythons, DOF won't be too much of an issue.  Not saying you can shoot wide open, but f/4 would probably be sufficient enough to get the correct amount of snake in ...
  • Honestly, I don't remember.  But as far as advice - since it's a portrait session, you have more time/flexibility (compared to an event).  Understand that they want the best results and if it ...
  • Meh, depends on your needs.  There's a reason there are so many cameras without an EVF/OVF.  I prefer optical viewfinders and am avoiding the transition to mirrorless for as long as possible, but ...
  • 55-200 (82ish-300 equivalent) is pretty telephoto for video, depending on what you want to shoot.  With the smaller aperture, you'll still be able to achieve background separation, but it won't be ...
  • Ok, I reread and think I better understand what you're doing.  I assume when you say transcode, you're actually referring to creating proxy files.  You're creating those files in H.264, then ...
  • I'm not sure what capabilities da vinci resolve free has, but the thing that you want to do is create proxy files.  Searching for "creating and using proxy files" on youtube or google will ...
  • Another vote for the 6D route.  I have a 5d mark iii, a 1D iii and a 1DX iii.  Unless she's always lusted after a 1D body, there's no reason to get an older one.  The 6D has better high ISO ...
  • So I haven't used a 6D or any of the canon mirrorless, so take any advice with a grain of salt.  I do have the 1dx mark iii (which shares a sensor with the r6, I believe) and I came from a 5D mark ...
  • Is it not just an xlr cable? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/accessories/XLR-Cables-for-the-Zoom-H4n-Pro-Kit-Classic/1385384-REG-95999?
  • It's a fun thought experiment, and one I'm particularly interested in because I don't want to go mirrorless (I have an x100f, xt1, xe2, 1diii, 5diii, 1dxiii).  The fujis are for fun, the canon's ...
  • I used a canon 5d mark iii from early 2013 until early last year when I upgraded to a 1dx iii for the video capabilities. I used it 4-6 days/week professionally for real estate, portraits, events, ...
  • Build quality, weather sealing, newest tech applied.  I think camera companies would define their pro level cameras as their flagship camera.  It offers the best of what they can offer at the time ...
  • If you keep reading, I mention my drone at the end, just forgot about it.  I use a mavic air2s, that replaced a 2pro that I crashed :(
  • Looking good on the outside means nothing for the internals.  Likely to fix it the least amount of work you would need would involve the motherboard.  There's a reason they total cars, and I ...
  • Always an interesting question as I shoot professionally and need to know what I need...and then also what I want. I have much more than I need.  I have an entire fuji system dedicated to ...
  • I don't know the lens selection of the e-mount, but if I were shooting events and in your boat (wanting longer focal lengths), I'd grab a 70-200, either f2.8 if you can swing it, or f/4. If you ...
  • You're fine shooting with no ambient light (using your flashes to provide all the light) - it's what a lot of studio photographers do.  It provides the most control over how you light the ...
  • My biggest concern with using your phone would be storage.  How much space do you have on your phone and how big are your picture files?  If you use something like lightroom, you can download the ...
  • I'd take a look at the other suggestions and move away from the thought of a gimbal/focus motor for what you're doing. I have a dji rs2 with the raven eye focus system.  If you have lenses with ...
