Sunset Over Palm Springs & An Annoying A7rII

  29.12.2016   Alik   Blog   2 Comments

I pulled out my ol Sony A7rII again. I had to take a break from it for awhile and focus on some of my Fujifilm lens reviews. You know, I never did a full review on the Sony A7r II. Weird right? But there is a good reason . . . I don’t really love it. And because I don’t love it, it’s hard for me to get excited enough about it to spend the time reviewing it. It’s almost a super cool camera, almost, but there are a few things that really bother me.

When looking at memory card performance, the Sony RX10 III is on par with the rest of Sony’s cameras, however, like the rest of Sony’s cameras, it’s pathetic compared to the competition and unfortunately suffers from the same bottleneck.

When it comes to buying memory cards, Sony cameras also seem to have a lot of compatibility issues with several brands. So this guide hopefully will steer you towards buying the best memory card for the RX10 III, so you don’t run into any problems.

Best Memory Card For the Canon G7X Mark II

  28.12.2016   Alik   Memory Cards   No comments

I test a lot of cameras, some I immediately don’t like, and some I immediately do like. This Canon G7X Mark II is one of those cameras that’s hard to not like. The touch screen and the interface just make this camera so easy and fun to use, it’s a lot like the Canon M5 in this regard. For me a lot of what I like about photography depends on my experience just using the camera, not just the specs. And the Canon G7X while lacking some specs, like 4k video and only have a sort of average burst speed, is very fun to use, feels great in the hand, and also has some nice image quality.

Now when it comes to finding the best memory card, it’s relatively easy because there is a bottleneck around 49 MB/s. Most cards can produce those speeds so instead of looking for the fastest memory card, it becomes about brand. Which brand of memory card is the best for the Canon G7X Mark II? That’s what this article is about.

Best Memory Cards For The Canon M5

For Canon shooters looking to finally make the leap into a mirrorless camera, the Canon M5 is it! I really fell in love with the camera in the short time I had it. Using the touching screen to adjust the focus, the menu interface, button layout, and really just everything about this whole package is awesome.

My only complaint is no 4k video which is too bad. I imagine the reason it wasn’t included is that Canon has yet to really develop a great codec that doesn’t require a huge memory bandwidth. For example the Canon 5D IV shoots 4k at 500MB/s. After testing the SD memory cards in this camera, you would have a hard time hit speeds fast enough to support that.

Regardless, memory card speeds in this camera were still impressive, especially compared to what Sony offers.

Use this guide to find the best performing memory cards for the Canon M5.

Must Have Accessories For The Canon M5

Did Canon finally figure out how to make an awesome mirrorless camera? It looks that way.

After testing the camera for a few days, I immediately fell in love. There are a few things felt cheap, or could be improved, but adding a few third party accessories or even Canon accessories could go a long way in improving the handling, look and performance of this camera.

Although I don’t own this camera, I’ll share with you some great brands of accessories I use for the cameras I do own, as well as other cool accessories I find and use that are sort of camera universal, like leather straps.
