Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Frame Digital SLR Camera Body

The replacement for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is finally here. Main differences listed below in the table. Is it worth the upgrade?

If you are using it to shoot video, then there is a clear improvement. Other than that, not much increase in the MP.

This may be a good time to go out and get the 5D Mark III as the prices would be coming down.

Spare Battery or Power Bank Charger?

Never thought I would see the day when I would need one of these but it came. A Power Bank Charger. In fact, I now have two.

We are all so dependent on our mobile phones for things like texting, checking social media, directions, selfies and even pokemon, it is no surprise that all this eats into the battery life.

Solution is to buy a spare battery. Cheaper solution would be to get a power bank which is most of the time, at least 50% cheaper than the original hand phone battery.


360 degree Photo and Video

Got hooked when I saw some immersive 360 degree like images where you can use the mouse to scroll left, right, top and bottom to view all angles of the image. This technology has also moved to video where you can view all angles of a video at the same time.

After some research, found out that it is more technically challenging to shoot and publish 360 photos than videos. A search on Amazon reveals the following for shooting 360 video Camera. Just shoot and publish on YouTube and done.

Photos on the other hand need to be stitched together. You need a stitching software for this. Then you need a viewer to view the results.

Where sharing 360 videos are concerned, YouTube has helped a lot by standardizing the viewing platform. 360 photos do not have such a platform to share easily.

During the study, we discovered the tools to shoot, stitch and publish Panaromas online. It may be very easy to publish a panaroma but to publish one in high detail requires some skill.

One of the main items besides your camera, that is required for panoramic photography is the rotator arm which rotates the camera on the nodal point of its lens. Failure to do this would always result in problems stitching the panaroma together.

Need Daily Rides in Singapore!

While Singapore prides itself as having one of the best public transportation in the world, that might be stretching the truth a little. No doubt the public buses or trains do arrive at regular intervals, they are often packed to the brim during rush hours in the morning and evening. During such periods, waiting for the next bus or train, because there is no way to enter the one that arrived, is a common scene.

Trying to hail a taxi or even book one in the mornings is like playing TOTO. Ride sharing apps have helped to reduce the demand but it is still playing TOTO as a ride is not guaranteed.

Apart from owning your own ride, be it a bike or car, the next best thing would be to have a regular driver come and pick you up. Some taxi drivers do offer this service for an additional charge. But this is strictly discouraged in the ride booking apps like
Uber or Grab. This could be due to the commission the ride sharing apps collect. Sidetrack, you could also read on the Confessions of a Ride-Share Cabbie.

In conclusion, if you require reliable daily rides and are willing to fork out slightly more than what a normal taxi ride costs, Check out Daily Transportation Service in Singapore

The latest APSC from Canon – EOS 80D.

The Canon 80D replaces the old 70D of July 2013, mostly adding a new autofocus system and a flicker shoot-through system needed for shooting under modern LED and sports lighting.

Quick Specs

45 zone AF system, all cross points.

7,560 pixel RGB + IR light meter, also used for face tracking and other tricks.

Frame rate is the same 7 FPS as the 70D, and resolution is essentially the same as well (24 MP looks the same as 20 MP) and takes the same battery.

NFC: NFCTM2 compatible

Worthwhile improvements over the 70D would be the improved dynamic range, 100% viewfinder and the headphone jack for monitoring sound during video.
