  • The poster to whom I was replying mentioned "a long coastline", as if that were the main risk.  A tunnel through which you can just drive – without the checks a commercial airline passenger might ...
  • You also have a tunnel that lets people drive from France to England without ever settng foot on a boat.
  • If you're referring to internal flash storage for photos or videos, I do not know of many cameras that have it. Some really low-end digital cameras (think $30 blister-pack specials, or rugged ...
  • That feature is Target Display Mode.  All of the 27" iMacs (except for the ones with Retina screens) have it.  A 27" iMac with Thunderbolt ports can act as a Target Display for other ...
  • You're looking at several in the post to which you are replying.
  • A "gray market" camera / lens / flash is one that was intended for distribution in another country, and that is being imported through non-official channels. It is manufactured in one of the ...
  • Actually, it's been proven time and again that when criminals are the only people who have guns, they feel free to use them.  The suggestion earlier in this thread that if criminals knew their ...
  • Correct. Correct. You generally have the right idea, especially with regards to lens focal length (which does not determine perspective).  But there is another way of changing perspective. Move the ...
  • If you think that apples are dangerous, try dihydrogen monoxide.  You can find it everywhere, especially at the scene of drownings.  It helps great white sharks to claim the lives of their ...
  • Don't forget the companion reading: 'A selfie with a weapon kills': Russia launches campaign urging photo safety
  • Something's odd here.  What sort of camera lets you use a mouse to navigate through pictures on the LCD screen? As to why the camera and computer behave differently, perhaps the camera is showing ...
  • While I do not as a rule favor guns in schools (due to the risk of theft and misuse by students – some of whom themselves may already be carrying concealed weapons), your line of argument does not ...
  • Gluten is a natural component of unrefined wheat.  Buying whole-wheat bread instead of "evil" refined white bread will not save you (if you have that allergy) here.
  • Acer makes several "V Nitro" laptops, including some that have IPS panels, and others that do not. A 17" Full HD specification by itself does NOT guarantee IPS (see, e.g., the specifications for ...
  • Replied in El Cap 10.11.5
    I haven't upgraded to 10.11.5 yet, but I've installed plenty of point releases before. It is usually the case that you can install even major updates without wiping the drive, e.g., if an old Mac ...
  • I think this is a result of a change ("full lamination") designed to cut down on reflections.  Both the Late 2009 iMacs and current ones have glossy screens, but when Apple introduced laminated ...
  • Replied in El Cap 10.11.5
    No, going from 10.11.4 to 10.11.5 doesn't mean wiping the drive.  The update will install in place.
  • Maybe exporting is slow in Lightroom, but it doesn't seem like a machine with a Core i5, a SSD, and 8 GB of RAM should be all that slow. Could it be something else?  Could the Windows equivalent of ...
  • If you're seeing lags with a Core i5 and 8 GB of RAM, one question that comes to mind is whether any new notebook will solve the problem.  If the new notebook isn't a lot faster in terms of having ...
  • A book about the history of photography is going to have quite a different focus from a book about learning the technical basics and the artistic side of photography. There are several good Kodak ...
