  3. I just received this Email. You are receiving this email as you are due to receive an Alamy payment this month via PayPal. Unfortunately we are experiencing a few issues with PayPal so there will be a slight delay with receiving your payment. Don’t worry though, we will be completing the processing of payments by the 18th August. Apologies for the inconvenience. Thanks, Alamy contributor relations
  4. This Alienware laptop with a an upgrade to a 1tb M.2 drive would be a good choice, maybe upgrade the RAM to 64 GB. https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/gaming-laptops/alienware-x17-gaming-laptop/spd/alienware-x17-r1-laptop/wnx17r1cto40s
  5. Could be a type of Assassin Bug which seems to come in a wide variety of configurations.
  6. I recently built a new computer and was surprised to find that all my files were being saved to Onedrive by default with the new copy of Windows 10. What a pain. Luckily OneDrive was nearly full, but then there are the annoying messages popping up that OneDrive was full. I had to stumble around to figure out how to stop the madness. Google Drive gives you 15GB for free. Here is a link that can help. https://account.cloud.ppi.net/knowledgebase/109/Turn-off-disable-or-uninstall-OneDrive.html
  7. They are talking about lifting all restrictions here in the US on the 15th of next month if you want to take a vacation. They lifted the mask mandate today for the whole country. California still has its own mask mandate, but it should be lifted soon. I wonder if my idea of shooting anti vaxxers with hypodermic darts loaded with vaccine would be socially acceptable.😁
  8. Maybe think of your self differently. "A content creator is someone who creates appealing and awe-inspiring content for the viewers".

  10. I see a lot of photographers using Gimbal heads. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/gimbal-heads/ci/32837/N/3611103771 https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gimbal+head+for+bird+photography
  11. If you are planning on shooting 4k video with the 5d MK IV keep in mind the file sizes are enormous and there is a 1.74x crop factor in 4K . You may need to upgrade your computer and storage to handle the load. You might look at the Canon 90D or M60 which have a 32 mp sensor has a smaller body's and do 4k video. The 5D Mk IV is a heavy camera when you put a 2.8 zoom lens on it. https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/buying-guides/canon-eos-90d-vs-eos-m6-mark-ii-dslr-vs-mirrorless-how-do-you-choose
  12. If your video card has a DVI output it may be able to run one more monitor if you add a splitter and perhaps an adapter to HDMI if needed. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=dvi+splitter
  13. I have the Canon 70-200 L IS II and the 2X II extender it is a combination that works well together. I use the combination on a 5D Mk IV and a 90D. I did discover that you need a fast shutter speed to ensure sharp photos 1/1600 is normal. I thought I might be missing out with this combination until I watched this video.
  14. The nice thing about a mongrel machine is you can easily replace parts. It becomes difficult with older name brand machines with proprietary hardware. I just upgraded my 10 year old computer with some new parts. Intel i9 processor, 32gb of ram, 1TB M.2 drive, new fans and cpu cooler and kept my old hard drives all for less than $900. I don't know if its because of the pandemic but computer parts are really cheap right now. Prices for CPU's and memory fluctuate like oil and other commodities so timing can be important. Mine was really dirty inside too.
