I use a Ravpower device

I understand this is a reader but it doesn't back up the files. So you still need a computer, is this correct?

I have the WD 500GB My Passport Wireless SSD. I don't need to use it wirelessly when I get home, so it is pretty fast transferring files. I can't seem to get it to work on my Amazon Tablet. I was hoping I could view the files there. If anyone knows how I can do this, I would love the help.

I have several of the MagMod products. They work on the flash, not on the lens. The Magbeam is like a *better beamer* There is a magnet on the flash and the Magbeam attaches with a magnet. While I don't use this one often, I do use some of the other MagMod diffusers.

I keep hearing about restaurants opening up selling "Cuban food". I ate mostly at places the Cubans had access to. The food was terrible. In spite of what seems like lots of arable land, there is little availability of produce. We had black beans and rice, which I like, several times - but there was no seasoning - no pepper, no salsa. One of the members of my group who had been there before brought a bottle of Tabasco - he was very popular. I ordered a "vegetarian pizza" at a small restaurant - it had canned peas and carrots on top!

I did not find that at all. The places we ate at were excellent. The food was great. Going outside of Havana, we went to an amazing organic farm. Watching the workers plant and water all the amazing produce was great. I watched a worker planting, mint in a circular pattern. So interesting to see.

In Vinales, walking early morning seeing the children going to school, the cowboys getting ready for the day and the workers in the fields was awesome to see and photograph.

I was in Cuba in December. This was my second trip. It is a beautiful country with amazing architecture. I did feel the people were better off than when I was there 5 years ago. We were 13 people, 2 photographer guides and 2 travel agents. We stayed in private homes and were driven by a team of drivers' in the classic cars. The travel agents have been taking groups there for over 10 years.

We had total freedom to wander the streets of Havana, Trinidad and Vinales. We went to a few fishing villages, to an organic farm, a tobacco farm, among many other locations. There is now wifi in the parks around Havana, Trinidad and some in Vinales. Many Cubans have cell phones and now have wifi access. Some have it in the private homes.

The people of Cuba are so happy to see Americans. They are friendly, and kind people. I know there are mixed feelings about visiting because of the government, but I still feel it is a great place to visit and to give whatever we can to the people.

I will be co-leading a photography trip there next January.
Here are 2 of my images. The ballerina and the fishermen on the Malecon, was amazing. We had 2 young ballerinas who posed for us for over an hour. The second image is a small fishing village, outside of Havana.
I have more images on my website.

I received this as a gift and have never used it. I have a similar bag and it is great when going to a party or for carrying your equipment in a bag that doesn't shout, *it is a camera bag*

It sells for $130 at B&H, $109 at Amazon. I would like to sell it for $90 plus shipping to continental US.

It is brown and inside is grey.

You did good!
The benefits of the wind blowing is that it slows down their flight and out of that come some fun poses. But it is hard to keep the camera still especially if you have a big hood attached.

Thanks so much. I did not find it slowed them down. They were flying quickly, it was hard to keep focus at times.

I am selling this, I just don't use it anymore. It is a great lens for macro, portraits. Lens is in great condition, minimal signs of wear. I have always had lens caps on when not on camera.
I am asking $300 plus shipping to continental USA. Photos on request.

Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 150mm with most cameras
Focuses down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 12.3 inches
A hood adapter, (not detachable) lens hood, front & rear lens caps are included with the lens

I live on Long Island. A friend and I went out to the Hamptons. It was so windy, difficult to hold the camera but I was able to get a few images of flying gulls, and one yawning one!

Love seeing the animal videos. I had a special dog, a wheaten terrier, that allowed me to dress her up and photograph her. She passed away 4 years ago at the age of 15 1/2. I miss her every day. Love the memories of her.
Happy Valentines day!!!

Good reviews -

Unless it's a fairly long trip, I just save the SD cards till I get home. My D750 has two cards, so I have automatic backups.

The advantage of the WD 500GB My Passport Wireless SSD is there is a SD slot. It isn't just a backup but has the ability to upload via a slot for the SD card.

I have this one. Was told the ssd was faster and would last longer. I can put my sd card directly into drive, no need for a computer.

I have a Sigma 105 F2.8 lens for Nikon that I am hoping to sell. I haven't used it and am now using Sony cameras.
Pm me if interested.

This was a fun video to watch. Thanks for sharing it.

I can add a few of my own.
