Comment on the forum I am having problems with the jog wheel on my 1D X Mark III popping every full 360 degree rotation, so there is a mechanical problem there and my body will be returned for a refund and so this is only a short review. This review also marks a milestone for EOSHD! After 10 years of blog posts, I am going to be doing YouTube now as well! Looking forward to doing MANY a video and growing the channel in a big way.

LA wedding photographer and educator Michael Anthony has released a detailed side-by-side comparison of the recently announced Godox AD300 Pro (Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro) and the much more expensive Profoto B10. The two lights share similar power output and a similar footprint, but vastly different price points. Is the Profoto simply overpriced, or does the Godox fall short?

It was about a year ago I reviewed the NIK Collection 2, a rebirth of popular Adobe plugins that laid fallow while its new owner, Google, tried to figure out what to do with them until DXO bought the software in 2017 and continually upgraded the collection. They have now added a feature that is really going to excite photographers.
For this Tool Talk we’re going to be talking about the Post Production workflow. It’s a little dry but it’s a crucial step in the film making process and there are things you need to do to ensure that you don’t lose a hard days work to something that could have been avoided with the proper precautions.
Wildlife and sports photographers live on supertelephotos lenses, and Sony offers two great zoom options in that range. However, they have overlapping focal length ranges and some similar features, so you might be wondering which of the two is right for you.

The Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens is the final entry into the company’s trinity of f/2.8 zoom lens, and like the 28-75mm f/2.8 and 17-28mm f/2.8, it is quite a bit cheaper than similar first party lenses. If you are wondering how it compares to the more expensive options, check out this great comparison with the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/4.

Generally, you need to get into about the $300 range before you start to see any lenses that can really deliver great results, but occasionally, a gem comes along at a price that seems too good to be true. The Pergear 35mm f/1.6 seems like it could be one of those lenses, and this great video review takes a look at it and what you can expect.
These are my thoughts on the Nikon D780 after shooting a 9-hour wedding with one in London in February of 2020. I had it for 3 days, so this isn’t an exhaustive technical review; I’m not going to dissect it or pixel peep, just report on my impressions as a full-time wedding photographer who normally uses a couple of D750s.
As a long time user of two D750s, both of which are on their last legs, I’m eager to upgrade them and, as a Nikon user, face a tricky decision. I was excited when Nikon announced that they were entering

Let us know what you think!
The third of this month marked two years since I took my first foray into the Sony Alpha Ecosystem. I thought it would be a good idea to look back to see how I’m liking the system and if my views have changed since my 12 month a7 III review.
Briefly: Why I Switched
I won’t go into great detail as to why I switched since I’ve already explained that in my previous review. The plain and simple fact is that I switched due to G.A.S. In these types of posts, you’ll hear most people say that they
