  • Transfer all photos, clean cards/reader contacts, format card and conform it works in the camera and in the computer.  If it reoccurs then I would dump the card and replace it, not worth the risk.
  • When it's clear the subject is occluded and small I'll throw on manual focus and use peaking to get focus.  You could use the single focus point and use the old-school focus and recompose rather ...
  • Aperture with good light and Shutter when I start to lose the light is 95% of my shooting, both with auto-ISO.  Manual for some special shots where I'm not worried about the time to get the ...

  • On the low end for pricing is blackblaze, wasabi, google storage and icloud;  roughly $110/2tb/year ( give or take $10 ).  They are nice but you are paying per gb stored every month. For that price ...
