  • If you are not a film maker or pro-videographer, it would be better to stick with a camcorder.  A film maker can use a DSLR to make wonderful video captures.  For example, some of the the last ...
  • Replied in FreeFileSync
    FreeFileSync is what I use. I am still on v5.12 and it has been working well for my needs. It's fast and can do update or mirror sync.  It support network shares with UNC path names.  One can drag ...
  • Amazon is what I use because I already have the Amazon prime membership.  It is included in the prime member photos for unlimited JPEG, TIFF, PSD and most if not all RAW files. First step I took is ...
  • My Panasonic FZ-1000.  It has been with me to 11 countries since 2014. It was given as a birthday present.  First I shot it side by side with the 5D Mark II and then as the main camera along with ...
  • I would highly recommend adding the FZ1000 and its follow on FZ2000 to the list.  These two are so called "large" sensor compacts and also bridge cameras.  They can be natural upgrade to your ...

  • I would recommend a Canon flash for future compatibility reasons. A refurbished Canon Speedlite 430EX II is only $149 from Canon. If you are considering a multiple flash setup (mast+slaves) in the ...
  • I love my full frame bodies. Started with a Canon 5D, added a 5D mark II, sold the 5D and bought a refurbished 6D from Canon. The lenses stayed pretty the same. For local events or car trips I ...
