    Removing the 5D4's AA filter?

    This is commonly done during infrared conversions. Any of the services that do this can replace the removed filters with an IR-blocking filter if you wish. Example: https://www.lifepixel.com/gear/anti-aliasing-low-pass-filter-removal

    Cleaning lenses

    I buy a bundle of terry-cloth type microfiber towels and cut them up into little squares. The textured surface does a better job of cleaning than those smooth "lens cleaning" microfibers.

    Hard drive advice

    If your only OS is on the SSD you won't be allowed to format it [you can't format your boot drive]. So you will need an external OS that can boot your laptop, and then use it to format the SSD within the laptop.

    Hard drive advice

    Prosumer Level Canon Mirrorless Camera to Have 4K [CR2]

    Yeah, just talked myself out of a a7r II after reading about all the repair nightmares. Doesn't matter how innovative a camera is if it's piled up on a lab bench for a month waiting on a sensor clean....

    FIXED: Bug in Adobe Creative Cloud Deletes Mac User Data Without Warning

    Re: Bug in Adobe Creative Cloud Deletes Mac User Data Without Warning Bug was annoying, but easily fixed using Backblaze's online instructions. No data lost. Kinda ominous, tho; don't appreciate this level of intrusiveness.

    Clamp for Black Rapid

    The Kirk 1" clamp works well for me, too. If you are concerned about the security of your camera, you can add an Op/Tech Uni Loop between the top of the BR swivel attachment and your camera. http://optechusa.com/uni-loop-1178.html
