GALLERY: Transformers Siege Sixgun – With Review!

I was skeptical about the Weaponizer component of Transformers Siege initially, based mainly on how Cog clearly could not transform to its very basic vehicle mode without parts removal and replacement.

Sony A6400: The Camera No Photographer Asked For

GUIDE: Buying A Camera (or, “Let’s Talk About How To Spend A Lot of Money”)

Taking the leap and upgrading from your smartphone’s camera to a dedicated piece of hardware is an important decision – and a potentially expensive one! I don’t think that everyone needs to go right away and make this investment, since the recent generations of phone cameras can potentially be quite capable. But when you decide it is time, you want to make sure that you’re putting your money in the right place, especially if this is the first time you’ve really given the matter serious consideration. In this article, I’ll talk about some of the things to look for, some of my recommendations, and where to go to do more research.
