How to Choose a Tripod

Choosing a tripod can be an overwhelming experience. A tripod is a very simple tool to keep our cameras steady when we use them in challenging light conditions. Further, there are so many different variables that come into play when choosing a tripod: How tall should it be? How much should it weigh? How stable should it be? What kind of weight can it support? How much should I spend on a tripod? These are just some of the questions that might come up as you look into buying a new tripod.

With that said the bottom line is, if you want sharper pictures then get a good tripod. A good tripod will last you virtually a lifetime and it will be good with each and every camera you may own. Don’t go cheap or you will regret it.

There are many posts out there on this subject. This post by one of my favorite companies, Really Right Stuff, I think does a good job.

Cellphone Theft on the Rise in the U.S.

Cellphone theft is on the rise in the U.S. Cellphone thefts are now the single biggest source of property crime in many American cities. A recent study found that lost and stolen phones cost consumers close to $30 billion a year. And 10 percent of smartphone owners say they’ve had a phone stolen.

There are well-organized sophisticated operations at work behind the scenes where they export the smartphones to other countries. So some law enforcement officials, including New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, would like the industry to do something about it. They are asking tech companies to come up with ‘kill switches’, which will render the phone inoperative.

The vast majority of people today are using their smartphones as their go to camera. What’s even worst they are archiving their pictures on their smartphones. If your smartphones is lost or stolen what happens to your beloved pics? This is what happens: they are gone. I mean lost perhaps gone forever with no hope of recovery. And, if the ‘kill switch’ initiative is engaged you can count on your pics being lost. Why take this risk? Save your pictures to your computer’s hard drive, in the cloud or to an external hard drive. Don’t take the risk. Saving your precious pictures is too easy. Don’t let them be lost.
