    Battery Grips For Canon 5d Mark IV

    Hello there! Recently picked up a 5d Mark IV and I love it. I've grown used to my 1dx and it's built in battery grip. Using a camera without one really throws me off and I don't like it. I find the $350 price tag for Canon's battery grip to be a tad ridiculous and I was wondering about other...

    Solid but affordable Tripod

    Hello there, Hope every one is doing well today. As some of you may know I shoot Varsity Sports throughout North Carolina which I absolutely love doing. I never have a lot going on during the weekends so I picked up a well paying hourly job shooting team and individual photos. It's been great...

    Help! New Monopod!

    Hello there friends, As some of you may saw from my earlier post, I finally made the move and purchased a brand new Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II lens. This was a big step for me with sports photography as I've been shooting on a 1dx with a 70-200mm lens for quite some time. I've gone through two...

    300mm F2.8 Lens or Nah

    Hello there friends! I posted a few days ago regarding a different lens question but I have a new but somewhat similar one today. I was originally trying to decide between a sigma 120-300mm f2.8 or a 1.4x teleconverter for my canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. I got a rather lucrative contract recently...

    New Bag

    Hello, So I've had a tamron bag that has lasted a very long time. It's a very durable bag and I love the thing but it can hold a body and maybe 3 lenses. I recently picked up a 2nd body since I decided I want 2 camera bodies again for many reasons, plus an upgrade was nice. :-P While I love...

    1.4 vs. 1.8

    Hello, I'm about to purchase my first full frame camera, the Canon 6d. Many of my lenses will not fit the new body because they're EFS lenses so I need to pick up a few new ones. The 1.8 is a cheap 92 dollars and the 1.4 is a decent 339 dollars. My question is, is it worth spending the extra...

    6d or 70d

    Hello, For a while I had my eyes set on the Canon 70d and I knew that's what I wanted but recently I've decided to look at the 6d as well. I've never used a full frame before so I've never really looked into them until now but I'm still not completely sure if I should upgrade to a 6d...

    New Nikon Camera

    For a while I hosting and designing my own website but keeping up with it took a lot of time, more than I wanted to spend on what I wanted as a simple website. I did like having my own website though, full control and I was able to make it relatively simplistic. The site was linked up with my...

    Canon 70d Battery Grip V2

    So, my other post got a lot of views but not a single comment. I figured maybe if I just ask for a good battery grip I'd get a few responses. I don't know if I should go with the Canon Brand or switch over to the off brand ones. Saves a ton of money but not sure if it's worth it!
