  • I fully agree. I was surprised by the suggestion to get a seventh generation processor. Maybe in the future, but a goo Skylake has a lot of power. My first recommendation would be to get as much ...
  • You can google Dell Outlet Coupons. Now I am talking personal. The last company I worked for we bought all of our computers - including servers from the Outlet. We never had any problems with our ...
  • I buy all of our laptops off the Dell outlet. I  wait for coupons and get great deals on either refurbished or scratch and dent computers . We get much more advanced systems for a lot less money. ...
  • I have never seen great deals on CM better than the online deals on BF. I have found CM always a bust. I have no n idea about BF store deals, I never shop BF store deals.
  • You can look at this many ways. A DSLR in the late '90s would cost you over $20K, today a camera with similar functionality is a fraction of the price. My First digital camera I purchased in '97 ...
  • I would never buy a lens I would not use, but I would buy lenses that are better suited for some of my needs. For example I would buy a few more prime lenses. I would buy a few more longer zoom ...
  • Expensive hobbies. They say the best two days in a boat owners life is the day they buy the boat and the day they sell the boat. I  am sure this is not true for everyone, but it sure seems like ...
  • I  think we will disagree a lot on this one. I  have been in the Tech industry for 30 years. I  work with a lot of manufacturers. HW companies don't operate on zero profits or even 15% margins. ...
  • I would buy used, but I  don't see much difference in price unless the lenses are quite old and last generation. Most of the time the discount is around 15%. Not big enough to make a difference ...
  • Replied in Yep!
    Yes, but the US tends to mirror the UK more than Canada. Having lived in the UK, I would hate their system. The UK system is a mess. A Government HC system for the Poor and a private system for ...
  • Just a thought, I see lower sales by many traditional camera companies and I wonder if the cost of lenses are one of the issues. I am a Canon photographer (mostly amateur), I make a good living, ...
  • No, in fact while I did not vote for Trump, but I finally see a decent future. I don't like to get political, but I am so tired of arbitrary rules and a president that rules by executive fiat. ...
  • Replied in Yep!
    One of the reasons I left my last job (help found the company) was the cost of insurance. Since the ACA our health insurance cost for the company quadrupled. The company still paid for employees ...
  • Yes, great name choice. I guess there is a market, but wow this is expensive.

  • I generally use Windows Explorer for small shoots. I do a bunch at a time, but not too many so I don't mess up and lose my selection. Pretty easy once you get use to it. For bigger projects I use a ...
  • I have no idea what you are talking about. My MKIII is built like a tank. I have taken it around the world, out on rough hikes, amusement parks and I have never been gentle with the camera. I have...

  • There are already options to meet your needs. Sony sells a lot of rx100s. I am sure for the same reason I bought one, it easily fits in your pants pocket. For family outings this is great. At...

  • Not sure why, I liked the article. I am mostly a Canon person, but I bought a RX 100 III earlier this year and it has become my go to camera for all family and plane travel photography. I would...

  • Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy several SD cards. I would think SD cards would also be more secure than a mechanical HD portable backup. Ed
  • Replied in Flash!
    I fully agree.  don't have flash on any of my machines. This is not why I  don't post on DPReview. Too many trolls and viral marketers on this site. I have other sites that are better for getting ...
