  • Glad to see this! I've been using Linux almost exclusively at home and at work since 1998, except for the last 3 years when I succombed to temptation to get a Macbook Pro for my work laptop - ...
  • Ok, just got it off with a lot of force. Only problem now is that the lock "button" on the hood is stuck in the "in" position, so it can't lock on. It does seem to stay on and not fall off, so I ...
  • Created question thread 24-70 lens hood lodged on
    24-70 f/4L IS got dropped, must have landed on its edge at an angle because the lens hood, which was on in storage mode, is now tightly lodged onto the lens itself.  No matter how I pull and press ...
  • I have the Rokinon 14 f/2.8 and 24 f/1.4.  The 14 does great at astrophotography wide open. The 24, on the other hand, has been rubbish at 1.4, OK at 2, and pretty good at 2.8.  I may have a bad ...
  • Replied in On Linux...
    I do run a Fedora VM in VirtualBox, but only for testing stuff I need to run in Linux. It's way too slow and awkward to use for normal desktop tasks.  But no matter, in March I'll be able to ...
  • Replied in On Linux...
    RE: Macs Agree. Although I've been a near exclusive Linux user at home and work for a long time, the last time I was able to choose my work computer I succumbed to the temptation to choose a Mac.  ...
  • Replied in On Linux...
    Well said. Open Source is just *so* much better. It is amazing what collaboration in the open can accomplish. (Near exclusive Linux user since 1998.)
  • Are you sure it supports your camera's RAW? That sounded like my first experience with RAW processing in Linux when I got my first DSLR in 2008 (a Rebel XSi). All RAW images were crazy off-colors ...
  • Nope. The 5D4 will probably be spring of 2016, and the 6D2 some time after that. That said, it's probably worth the wait if you're only going to buy one body in the next 5 years. It will be a huge ...
  • Probably a 6D if price is important, plus it allows for swapping the optical viewfinder for a screen that's optimized for MF. The 5D3 can not do that, and you really don't need its features over ...
  • I've not had that type of problem. There's once or twice where I had to remove the "main" battery. Scared me a bit, but that fixed it quick enough.
  • If you have a lot of friends, it is virtually certain that one or two knows Linux pretty well! If you pick a distribution and application software with strong community forums and wikis, that will ...
  • I've been using it exclusively since 1998 at home and at work (except for some stupid reason I chose a MacBook Pro at work when given the chance last time....can't wait till it expires so I can go ...
  • Focus peaking is pretty essential for MF lenses in low light. I don't know why Canon doesn't provide that. :( There's also a focus stacker in ML that I've been meaning to try for macro stuff, but ...
  • RAW video makes for very high quality HD video (on the 5D3, lesser resolution on other cameras) but not 4K Anyway, to address the OP, I suppose it is theoretically possible for a firmware update to ...
  • Seems to be every bit as great as people say. I'm still a bit hesitant about having both it and the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 though. I've not yet done a head to head comparison but will sometime. Anyway ...
  • Wow it's definitely sharp! First a bit inside my office where I received it: The ultimate lens test! What used to be the world's largest word search with a Guiness record to prove it (though since ...
  • Care to share your scripts involving ufraw-batch and imagemagick?
  • Here's a recent article on the state of color management in Linux. https://lwn.net/Articles/643623/ I personally have not worried about this stuff. I guess I'm just not sophisticated enough. :) But ...
