About me:

My "day job" is a BIM Manager in the A/E industry (Revit geek), and I do architectural photography on weekends for a small client list of architects and builders. When not photographing buildings, it's mostly pictures of my two young kids. I don't have much free time to explore other avenues in photography, but someday I'd like to pursue landscapes.

  • Agreed that the identical control layout is a huge benefit to the 7D2.  It will be effortless to go between bodies and not think about tweaking different controls for the same function.  This can ...
  • The Go definitely won't replace a desktop.  A fully loaded Surface Pro could for certain use cases, but it's still going to struggle with heavier workloads. Microsoft is running a pretty nice deal ...
  • I have a 256GB microSD in the Surface just as extra storage.  It never comes out.  For photo work, I use my card reader to transfer images.  I still use CF in some bodies, so I still need a ...
  • As a Surface Pro 4 owner (i7/16GB/256), this device is interesting but I have no desire to trade my current SP4 towards one. What I like about the smaller Surface Go: (1) The SP4 is portable, this ...
  • Flashback to 2002... +1 I couldn't care less about these new digital SLR cameras.  I have used 35mm film SLRs since the 70s and I feel at home with them.  Just like you mentioned, I am waiting for ...
  • I'm not a LR user, but the 7.2 update seems to really take advantage of additional cores for certain workflows. In some cases, the difference is drastic. Exporting images and generating previews ...
  • There really isn't any 'magic' to FF vs. APS-C that takes much time to figure out. I see so many on here say stuff like "FF has a higher learning curve" or "you're not ready for it". Hogwash! It's ...
  • If all you're comparing is the amount of detail each format can capture with a good lens under optimal conditions, then yeah...not much difference between the two formats at similar pixel counts. B ...
  • I'm on the fence watching the action on both sides.  I'm a Canon shooter and have a Sony FF body for specific uses.  Currently I'm not interested in switching systems as there are tradeoffs, and ...
  • Get the Canon 16-35 f4 IS if budget allows.  It's pretty much the benchmark for this class of lens.  You have to spend double to get a better lens, and by 'better', that really only means faster f2.8.
  • I'm only excited because hopefully it will drive down second hand prices of the MkII.  I'm still shooting with the magic drain pipe.
  • +2 Works great.
  • I'd say it's all about what you're used to.  If you're on spinners and happy with them, then be happy.  If the hard drive fairy came overnight an ripped out my SSDs and replaced them with cloned ...
  • What defines a 'budget' PC is subjective. According to this, the average price of a PC is just over $700. By definition, 'budget' models would fall below that. So yes, a $1K PC is not a budget ...
  • Saw that. Definately a better machine, though a 128GB SSD is on the small side these days. Over the next few years there's a good chance you'll outgrow it. I'd check out some of Microcenter's ...
  • We'll have to agree to disagree here. $1000 is not a 'budget' desktop. To me it's even worse if you're spending that kind of $$ for an i7, as it would be the biggest performance bottleneck by ...
  • Couldn't disagree more. I've upgraded numerous PCs from spinning disk C: drives to SSDs, and pretty much anything you touch improves. Yes, startup is the most noticeable, but everything from web ...
  • Excellent camera for sure, but man...tough to get over that price. Is it really that much better than a FZ2500, or worth 3x the price of the still-great FZ1000? I have to agree with the comment...

  • Replied in Full frame GAS
    Here's the good and bad from my point of view, as there's plenty of stuff I don't care about that others may (like video, jpg quality, dual card slots, etc.).  Others can list every spec it does ...
  • I'll admit I was aware of Chris and Jordan before but was not a regular watcher of TCS. Caught some videos if I came across a link or something, but TCS was never a 'bookmark' per se. Always...
