I got to get an external 12 TB Drive for Mac computer. I heard that WD drives have had reliability problems in the past. How are their drives right now? The G Technology 12 TB drive is much more expensive but might be worth the extra money. Hoping the prices for these big drives come down as I have to make a decision soon. Most cameras are coming out the 20 mp these days and some have 4K video which I bet will fill up a drive fast.

In reply to:

JackM: Great, but... should we wait for more lenses for the a7/r, which won't be usable with this sensor, or should we wait for this system? Argh.

Does this mean that full frame cameras or aps-c cameras can be smaller? If so that would be a great idea. Remember the Olympus XA 35MM clamshell camera. It was easily pocketable and took great sharp photos with the 40mm lens. Focusing was by rangefinder with aperture priority. I took my Olympus on many ski trips. Olympus should come out with the XAD. Full frame or aps-c cameras are generally not pocketable unless you have a large coat pocket.

Great shot and you got the propeller to blur! Good color as well.

This is really interesting. The color saturation is high but effective.

I like the placement of the lemons in this photo. Nice side dishes as well.

This does look like gourmet food. Row of food is effective composition.

Maybe this shot is underexposed?

Lighting is a little harsh-might be more effective with tent box lighting.

This is an interesting idea. I think the white background is okay.

This dessert looks decadent and fattening. Got to work out after eating some of this. Nice lighting and texture.

On article Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (98 comments in total)

I bought a Kodak printer a couple years back. I just hope they continue to make ink for it. It may save me money on ink but it is noisy during operation. Kodak used to make pretty good digital cameras. My first digital camera was a Kodak DX series. Kodak should get back to its roots by making value oriented cameras that outperform their price point. Kodak's mistake may be trying to make tons of different digital cameras non of which can beat the competition.
