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.
