My other camera

Last year, realizing it was just plain foolish not having a back-up camera, I began researching a second camera. It needed to be smaller, take decent quality photos, and not break the bank. Looking at just about anything smaller in size, all name brands, the search narrowed after a few days.  While considering other Canon cameras, there was also Fuji, Sony, Minolta, Lumix, and a host of others to review.  Then, one camera began appearing more and more…

Geekoto X25 Defender Review

When the folks at Geekoto approached me about testing a tripod, at first I was flattered. However, later I was actually a little scared because I wondered what I would do if it just wasn’t very good?  Then what?  Fortunately, that wasn’t the case as this tripod was a pleasant surprise!

The Everyday Sling, Continued…

Back in September (2016) I stated that if I had a mirrorless camera, “this would be my bag 24/7!” Well, I meant it, and after writing that post I actually ended up purchasing a Sony A7R mirrorless camera and decided to give the Everyday Sling a shot as my every day bag.
