  1. 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
  2. Could be a type of Assassin Bug which seems to come in a wide variety of configurations.
  3. 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
  4. 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.😁
  5. Maybe think of your self differently. "A content creator is someone who creates appealing and awe-inspiring content for the viewers".

  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. You might open up the case of your computer and see how dirty it is. If the cooling system is plugged up it will cause overheating and damage to the CPU or motherboard. You can blow out the dust with canned air. SSD's are really cheap right now $50 for 500gb. Most come with a means to transfer all your software over to the new drive.
  13. My 4 year old laptop benefited from an SSD transplant as far as editing 4K video is concerned. I put the operating system and photo and video editing programs on the SSD and moved the old spinney drive to the DVD slot for storage of files. My desktop computer is 9 years old and needs a heart transplant soon. I was hoping the government would come through with some stimulus money soon but I guess not this year. Alamy sales haven't been good this year either, but I'm hopeful as more people get vaccinated demand for photos will begin to pick up.
