  • Thank you. Great to get some input from NEC. The backlight sensors sound interesting. Are they a substitute for a 3rd party calibration system (i1 Display etc), or an addition to it?
  • If your NEC had it, you would know about it. The Eizo has a calibration puck installed within the bezel of the monitor. When active it swings down over the screen and goes through a calibration ...
  • Replied in iMac Retina 5K
    Thanks for the feedback. It's good to know that other photo applications run smoothly on the 5K iMac. I don't what percentage of photographers use Lightroom/ACR for raw conversion, but I suspect ...
  • Replied in iMac Retina 5K
    Lightroom (and ACR) are notoriously slow on systems with high resolution monitors. On paper, you would expect Lightroom to be very sluggish on a 5K iMAc. Yet whilst some have reported this, others ...

  • If you think the key selling point of an Eizo display is its wide colour gamut, then you've misunderstood the product. Whilst wide gamut is useful for those of us who use Epson inkjet printers, the ...
  • Easier said than done. (Is that better?) I also run my Eizo at 100.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    Could you guys start a new thread? This one's supposed to be about the new mac mini. Thanks.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    It's soldered on: http://www.macrumors.com/2014/10/17/mac-mini-soldered-ram/
  • The new mac mini has the same innards as the current 13" retina MBP.
  • On paper, this seems like a massive downgrade compared to the previous model. How does it effect  photographers? Do our applications (e.g Photoshop, ACR, LR, PhotoMechanic) make good use of ...
  • Replied in ...
    What resolution is your monitor? That's the issue I'm driving at - Lightroom/ACR struggle to preview images efficiently on high resolution monitors. There's a possibility that they will not work ...
  • Replied in Question -
    Yes, the higher the resolution of the monitor, the slower Lightroom/ACR becomes. (I'm talking about  responsiveness whilst editing, not speed of batch processing - so responsiveness of zoom ...
  • I currently use a 27" Eizo (CG275), hooked up to a mac mini (2011). I'm disappointed by the specs of the new mac mini (no quadcore), but intrigued by the new iMac. I'm considering running one with ...
  • You've already done the test. The misalignment is obvious - the plane of focus is diagonal. This could be caused by a damaged lens or a damaged body (misaligned lens mount). I'd send both to Nikon ...
  • Looks identical to the RFN-4s.
  • Thank you Michael. I contacted Legio Aerium and got a swift reply offering me either a refurbished or a new RFN-4s receiver at a decent price. However there were international shipping charges, ...
  • My RFN-4s broke recently. One of the pins in the receiver snapped and lodged in my D800's 10-pin socket. Fortunately I was able to pull the pin out with pliers. I binned the RFN-4s. However I'll ...
  • The aperture ring assembly is easy to access. Just remove the 3 screws in the lens mount and lift it off (be careful not to strip the heads of the 3 screws). With the lens mount removed, you ...
  • What was wrong with the AF fine tune menu? How have they fixed it?
