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?

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.

How Does the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Compare to Both Sony 70-200mm Lenses?

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.

Wedding Photographer Reviews the Nikon D780

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

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
