Canon Camera -- Canon EOS 6D Features And Benefits

Canon EOS 6D

This Canon camera weighs only 1.7 pounds, i.e. without a lens. Compared with a full frame DSLR, you can really say that it is a compact one. This model can only be used with APS-C cameras. The 6D is void of flash but you can use an external one.

This model has integrated Wi-Fi connectivity. This means that you can share your photos directly from this device to another Canon Wi-Fi camera. You can also send the photos taken using this device to a Wi-Fi enabled printer. Through its Wi-Fi connectivity, you can view your photos through a DLNA device.

Another thing that you can do with the said feature is the fact that you can send your photos directly to your Facebook, YouTube or Facebook account via the Canon Image Gateway service. But the said service can only be utilized right after setting up the EOS Utility application on your computer. After set up, you can link your social networking accounts.

How is its performance?
Compared with other high-end models, the 6D is a bit slow. It takes 4.2 frames per second for continuous shooting. But the slowness depends on the file format and your card speed. If you shoot photos in JPG, you will not notice any slowdown.

Who can benefit from this Canon camera? 
Any photographic enthusiast can take advantage of the features of this model. However, if you are looking for a camera to shoot events, then you might want to consider other options, like Nikon D800 (which I love). This camera is great only if you want a full-frame DSLR but cheaper.

With 4.5 fps
Excellent image quality
Integrated GPS and Wi-Fi
Supports USB tethering
Full frame sensor

Best Credit Cards For Travelers

Here is a list of the best credit cards that you can use while traveling. These credit cards can provide some rewards and values for being a traveler.

1. American Express.
The Premiere Rewards of American Express allows you to triple your points each time you purchase a plane ticket using it. You can also double your points for using your card on gas and groceries. What is great thing about it is that the points you have earned will never expire. This means that you can use them anytime you want. Unfortunately, the annual fee for this type of credit card is on the expensive side so you need to be ready for it. The annual fee after the first year is $175.

2. Chase Sapphire Preferred.
The best thing about it is that it does not have foreign transaction fees. This means that you do not need to worry about paying extra charges each time you use it overseas. This is especially beneficial for international travelers. The annual fee rate is $95.

3. Citi Gold
This is great for you if you are a domestic traveler who flies to the same destination. With this card, you can earn a mile for every dollar that you spend using Citi Gold. When you travel through American Airlines, you do not need to worry about blackout dates. This card charges you with an annual fee of $50 after the first year of signing up.

Before you plan your trip, you must confirm the rates of your credit card for confirmation.

Sony Xperia Z Features Waterproof Phone

Sony Xperia Z is one of the hottest, prettiest phones presented at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. It is available in black or white. Among the Android phones present, Xperia Z truly stands out.

Standout Features:

1. Waterproof
One of the best things about this phone is its waterproof feature. Yes, you can submerge in up to three feet. However, it must only be in the water for 30 minutes. Although it is waterproof, it is not bulky or rugged like the Samsung Rugy Pro. This model of Sony is also dust resistant.

2. Tempered glass
The entire phone is made from tempered glass. The front and back of the unit is protected with anti-shatter film.

3. 5-inch 1080 display.
Its high resolution is one of the reasons it has been considered by many experts to become the hottest gadget in 2013 when it becomes available on the market. Its large screen size allows this unit to be categorized as a phone/tablet.

What is under the hood?
It runs on a 1.5 Ghz, quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It comes with a 2-GB RAM and 16GB storage. Its 13-megapixel camera has HDR video capture. With that in mind, it can help you get macro shots that are super close. It can adjust to lower light conditions as well. In burst mode, it can capture successive shots.

Its battery has also improved.

It has built-in apps that let you share photos, videos and music through NFC using compatible Sony devices, such as TV.

Unfortunately, pricing for Sony Xperia Z is not yet available. The company also has not announced when it is going to be released in the Philippines.

How To Be Perfect: Rules To Become A Perfect Individual

Many individuals want to be perfect. There are many rules suggested by experts but none of those rules truly work. We think of celebrities. Their fame and fortune. Their clothes. Their money. But, no matter how hard they try to succeed in their lives, they are still not perfect. 
Before, I thought that to become a perfect individual, I needed to study hard in order to have a successful career, thereby, allowing me to buy things that I want and need. But I just learned that there are only three rules that I need to follow so I can be a perfect individual. 
What are these rules? 
1. Follow the 10 commandments.
2. Sell what you have -- house, clothes, etc. 
3. Give to the poor. 
If you could follow these three rules, you could be perfect. Unfortunately, for many of us, these three rules are very difficult to keep. This is especially true if you are rich.(Matthew 19:18-21).
What about you? Can you stick to these rules?

Travel Philippines: Ways To Help You Travel To This Beautiful Country

How to travel to the Philippines?

With multiple international flights entering and leaving the Philippines, it is not that difficult to visit this Asian country. And because of the number of airlines that fly to and from PHL, the ticket prices have become cheaper than before. But you can further save money if you plan carefully and book your tickets in advance. You also need to consider the taxes, accommodation and activity costs related to your trip here. You must also be ready for the amazing things that may happen to you as you see the many stupendous places of this country.

Here are some tips to help you travel to the Philippines safely:

1. Book a plane ticket in advance.
Philippine Airlines is one of the most popular airlines in the Philippines that fly in 26 destinations, from Southeast Aisa to Oceania to North America. To avoid the hassle of booking in a traditional method, you may visit its website to book a flight. You may also travel through Qantas, Cathay Pacific and other international airlines that have direct flights to the Philippines.

If you want cheaper way to travel here, you can go for a cruise. Cruises are cheaper than air travel. But the latter is more convenient and way faster than the former.

2. Get accommodation as early as possible. 
There are many hotels and hostels in the Philippines. They are located all over the country. However, if you have friends or family who live here, then you might want to consider staying with them to reduce the overall cost of your travel.

3. Set a budget. 
Philippines is a third-world country. Thus, it is cheaper to travel here than going to Europe, Canada and other first-world countries. But you still need to set up a budget so you have a guide on how much you are going to spend for this trip.

The currency here is Philippine Peso. Be sure to carry cash in this currency. Not all ATMs here can dispense cash from your currency to local currency. Traveler's checks are safe here but it would be difficult to find establishments to cash. But you can bring your credit cards and use them as your payment method in selected places.

4. Stay in touch with your family. 
You must send an email to your spouse, parents or friends so they know if you are safe. This is also important in case of an emergency.

5. Enjoy your time here. 
There are various places that you can drop by and enjoy the sceneries. Spend some time with the locals to get to know more about the place. This is your time to make memories that will last a lifetime.

When backpacking for your travel here, you do not need to bring everything you have. Instead, you must only include the essentials.

Now, get out here and have a safe, good travel!
