I'm glad you were able to recover your files. Something most folks don't know is that Western Digital makes a type of hard drive that has a MTBF better than the consumer drives but not as good (nor as expensive) as server drives. They're called RAID Edition and the current version is #4 so they're "RE4" drives. You can see one here. I use them as the C: drive in my computers and as the primary backup drive.

Hi Ted,

Thank you for the info, I'll already bought a WD 2TB External HD.

I processed again the last shot were you advised to add more contrast, looks better..!!

Hi James,

I need to find the way to sync my two HD, it is very tedious to do it manually.

I really appreciate any advice.

London's skyline is nothing like NYC's, its pretty flat with very few sky scrapers although if you head up to Canary Wharf, its a bit like downtown Toronto (according to family from Canada).
It will be nice to discover some places in London, I am planning to bring with me a 14-24mm f/2.8 and a 24-70mm f/2.8 and provably a 30mm f/1.4 for low light shots... what do you think?

Yes! That's what I was imagining. To me it's an iconic "this is a city" photo.

Hey MArcelo

Thats a good lens selection to bring, esp the 1.4 small and light. You might want to bring a TC for use with the 24-70 just to give you a little extra reach incase you need it

Cheers

All that info should be in the software that came with your back up drive. On mine I click on the synce tab and select auto sync.I did not get an actual disc but it loads automatically the first time you plug the drive in.

That's a great advice about the TC, there are only 3 lenses but believe me those are heavy..!!!

I would love to bring with me the 70-200mm is my favorite lens but the size and weight is a limitation for travel photography.

In NYC when I do my walks I adapted my camera bag to a hand truck otherwise is really impossible to bring it with me on my back.

I have in my bag the 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, the D600 with the SB-900 flash and my heavy tripod:







I am considering to brin g this hand track with me to London but I am not sure if it will be a good idea, maybe is better if I buy a lighter tripod.

Wow, Marcelo, that is quite a heavy load to haul around!!

(Just think how much weight you could save with an OMD EM-5 and lens. )
