I’ve been rocking a Canon 80D since I bought it brand new in 2016. It’s been a great camera. I shoot a lot of action photos (sports mostly) so the 7fps shooting isn’t super awesome. Which brings me to my question. Should I ditch the 80D and upgrade to the new 90D? It has 10fps shooting and tons of other upgrades (like a 32.5mp sensor vs 24 in the 80D). The problem is I just don’t know if all the upgrades are significant enough to warrant getting the 90D. Any suggestions? If you follow these guys, they love the 80D https://www.photographytalk.com/canon-eos-80d-review, and I do too, but again, just not sure if it’s worth the expense to upgrade. Is there another Canon camera that might be a better upgrade than the 90D?
I like your blog and the articles you write, I would also be interested in what kind of camera you took photos of. I create blue abstract backgrounds, and I was very interested in the background of one of the photos, I will be very grateful.

You have ideally selected the sizes for these photos that you used to improve the quality? I always do this with increase resolution of image online and my image detail is increasing. I really like it. Very good editor.

We often see our doctors for varied reasons. It may be because we are looking some illness or uncertain health conditions. Some visit as per the order by professionals to follow up on a regular basis. But there are also a few of them who visit their doctors as a regular routine. This routine could be considered as a smart and healthy habit.

Great article and post. Have you ever use image colorizer to increase the image size and resolution? I like the services and make the photo better
