How to cope with the World (Cup) ending

Even marginal football fans have been living and breathing football for the past month of the World Cup.

This calls for a change of plans for the summer… perhaps something to scale back the damage and reveal the six-pack once again.

What kind of camera should you pack on your next holiday?

With your vacation drawing near, one of the things you’ll start thinking about is how best to capture your next holiday’s photographic moments. As a photographer myself, my advice to you is to dispense with modern and expensive mega-pixel laden mobile technology in cell phones, tablets and point-and-shoot cameras. Take with you an older, less expensive DSLR camera and lens combo!
