  • Another option that I failed to recognized is the Nikon product Camera Control Pro 2. It runs on Macs and recognizes the D7200 (in the latest download version). I quite like the controls but you ...
  • Thanks for the pointer.  I downloaded Sofortbild.  It looks nice and works with my older D90.  But, it will not recognize the D7200 :(  So, no go. If I get hooked on high speed, I'll certainly look ...
  • I never noticed that option before.  Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread External monitor
    I've been thinking about getting a monitor to use with my MBR. I was looking at the Dell P2715Q 27" Ultra HD 4K Monitor which has the nice feature of being rotatable from the wide-screen ...
  • Which App do you mean? I need something which will allow fine focusing with a zoomed into the image (the workshop is about high-speed photography with macro lenses).
  • Created discussion thread Tethered shooting with D7200
    I'm going to be attending a workshop where they are suggesting that we use tethered shooting. I have LR CC and can use that for tethering my D7200 but the interface is not great and doesn't ...
  • I have to disagree with some of what you are saying. The main system disc contains your primary applications, swap space, LR catalog, etc. Having this on an SSD will speed up access to all of those ...
  • I'm exploring the same issues.  Replacing the HDD with an SSD after purchase is very hard.  The iMac is not meant to be user-upgradable.  I'm sure it can be done but, if you are not big on ...
  • Oh - I didn't realize that was a possibility.  Hmm.
  • Created discussion thread Buying a new computer
    I know this has been widely discussed but I'm looking for some more specific feedback. I used Windows computers exclusively until about 8-10 years ago when I switched to Macs.  Currently, I have a ...
  • Thanks.  That is helpful.  I thought that Crucial RAM was OK - I limited my search on the BH web page to RAM compatible with the late-2015 iMac.  And, this product was listed.  The detail page for ...
  • Created discussion thread RAM upgrades for new imac 27"
    I searched but didn't find answers :( I am exploring updating to a new27" iMac. I plan to expand the RAM using third party supplies (not buying from Apple). Two questions: (1) I found OWC RAM for this ...
  • Actually, no - I didn't want them faster. My order was placed on Feb 16 and today (April 8) I have still not received the product.  That's nearly 8 weeks (over 50 days).  Amazon (and the vendor) ...
  • I ordered some tripod clamps from this company through amazon.ca.  I've been waiting nearly eight weeks for delivery and the package still hasn't arrived.  There is no tracking information. It was ...
  • Created question thread Manfrotto 420B Combi boom
    Decided to withdraw my question but the system won't let me do it :-)
  • If the % scale is that much better, why does LR switch to the 0-255 scale with soft proofing?  I have given you reasons for preferring the 0-255 scale (which could also be presented as a hex value ...
  • But, whatever processing is used, the raw data is stored in binary meaning that powers of 2 represent the data better than powers of 10. Yes, but....  Suppose that I want to change a specific shade ...
  • Sorry, but I'm getting a bit frustrated now.  I have clearly said that I don't think that the added precision from using the % format has any value or meaning.  It is a false sense of precision.  ...
  • I wrote these response out of sync since I had an Internet failure for about an hour. I won't pursue this further after this post. You clearly know far more about color management than I do. I ...
  • I'm not disagreeing with any of this.  I was trying to point that writing extra digits to the right of decimal point do not generate more granularity or precision in the image.  That is fixed by ...
