  1. The only thing I would really like that exists now is a Leica Q2. The thing that does not exist that I want is Sony A7 IV (if it has 30 – 36MP with their new AF). That would be perfect…

  2. Definitely love the fuji cameras. Don't have the xt3 yet but the xt2 and the now on huge sale the xh1 ($900, was $1,800 when it came out last year) I got the xh1 on sale, such a great deal. The godox v860II flash he mentioned is an amazing flash as well, I have the fuji version obviously but heard great things about the sony version as well.

    For drones besides the famous dji drones there are some other options for those on a budget. The fimi x8 se has the same camera and gimbal as the mavic pro 1 but half the price. Just no front sensors but 50% off who cares. The husban zino is an even cheaper option making it the cheapest 4k 3 axis gimbal with a gps. So if you like the mavic mini but really need 4k suggest you check either of them out. Then there's the autel evo, the famous orange drone, it's a nice option for those who want a dji mavic 2 but can't quite afford it. The evo is often considered about a mavic 1.5+. 4k 60fps and no nfz make it a very attractive alternative. Finally there's the new skydio 2, 4k omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, better obstacle avoidance than any dji drone, people are taking this thing out in the woods and using follow me modes mountain biking through tight treees.

  3. The Godox TT685 is like the V860 except you can put any AA batteries in. If you are a hobbiest that can be more convenient as you don't get out your flash and have to wait to charge up an Li battery. I love one.

  4. Adorama has better sale on Godox V860 (but its their house name Flashpoint). It is only $120 Flashpoint Zoom Li-ion R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight For Sony (V860II-S)

  5. I grabbed me a Flashpoint (Godox/Adorama) 600 Pro with flash head extension and 200AD kit along with a C stand for Cyber Monday …

    Just an FYI, the 600 Pro has a 38W modeling lamp. The β€œmanual” non-Pro 600 only has a 10W modeling lamp. That's a huge difference. Everyone thinks they're the same flash besides TTL, but they're not. For me that was enough to pay extra for the pro version.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you guys shoot Godox though instead of Profoto or Elinchrom! Makes me feel so much more confident as someone who can only afford Godox starting out!

  6. Hello Tony been waching both of you for ages I am retired and want to get one of your guides on Photo/ Video editing dont want to use a program that will invole me going to University to operate what do you considr please my carera's are Canon M50 and DJI Pocket and Action hope you can help thanks heaps stay safe

  7. This year I am thankful I don't need/lust for much in my camera bag. I know it doesn't sound that fun but it is a nice feeling to have. My kit is nice. There is newer/slightly-better pieces out there, but they won't elevate my results near as much as me improving myself. That is my next gift to myself…. practice. Sorry retail stores. πŸ™‚

  8. OK, Tony, you're right – Gitzo tripods are luxurious. And you're saying who good it feels caused me go out and get one. But I had to spring for the Series 2 Traveler because, well, it's even more fabulous tactilely (and only a snip heavier and longer — still transportable but even stronger). And the Gitzos are on sale with really nice savings at all the usual online places. So much so that I sprung for a Wimberly Sidekick which will be a dream combination for the sports I'm shooting. So, thank you for making my holidays a little more "decadent."
