    Hey Mat,
    What do u think about the 5D Mark IV, I saw that you had it but you are not using it anymore.
    I was thinking to buy it as I use my camera a lot for video and also time-lapse photography.

    What do you think is best ?; mark III, IV or 100C mark ii?

    Regarding Hard Drive failure, a pro photographer I know budgets to retain all the original CF cards used on jobs. He has CF cards from over 20 years ago that perform perfectly. He likens it to keeping ‘negatives’ from the old photochemical film days.

    FYI, Jetstar weighed my wifes small/personal bag (her handbag) along with her carry-on bag and included it all in the allotted 7kgs in total. If they weighed your bag, carrying your laptop separate wont work.

    I love the sarcasm to the haters!    The tip for resetting the file numbering is a good one,  I’ve been there done that with renaming countless files
