  • I am using a Win-7 pro 64 and use Chrome all the time.  I have no problems at all with it.  Is it the newest ver?  Have you tried doing a thorough  un-install re-install?
  • I use Gizmo's reviews, they recently reviewed and rated free software for burning CDs and DVDs. They also warn of what the publisher's are including in their downloads, like Open Candy.  They also ...
  • Thanks for the kind words.

  • great shot, but I only gave you 1 star because of the background. I do really like the the wave action and color but couldn't give you more because of the rules of this challenge.

  • Commented on Waves in the Waves & Nothing Else (full color only) challenge

    what an awesome shot, but I could only give you one star, it just doesn't fit the rules set forth in the challenge.

  • Replied in Trojan Inject2
    The last two days I have gotten a pop up window while checking my email on Earthlink advising me to update my flash.  I use Secunia daily and knew there were no flash updates needed for my system. ...

  • I am a long time viewer and always click on your pics.  I have enjoyed many of them in the past, but this one is especially awesome.  Really a beautiful picture, well done!
  • Jim, thanks I looked at my Windows Update Log and discovered it stopped after I had installed the new Adobe Flash on Wed. and then mistakenly tried deleting the Adobe Installation Helper. When I ...
  • Created questions MS update history gone?
    I have a Dell XPS 8500 running W7 pro 64.  Yesterday I updated my bios to A12, and have since noticed that my update history is no longer listed in its normal place.  When I click 'check for ...
  • When I bought my 7d a few years back, I had found a really good price at Photo 4 Less, also known as Sigma 4 Less, they were quite a bit less than B&H.  I had used B&H in the past and wanted to ...
  • I have used Recuva and also ZAR, which offers a free photo recovery tool.  I had used ZAR about 4yrs. ago.  It saved my CR2 files as tiffs, but they were recovered off a card that I had ...
  • Kevin, that's exactly what I wanted to see.  I just wanted to see what I could expect with the 150-600 compared to my 100-400.  Thanks!
  • Thanks for the shots and review KG. I shoot with a 7d and a 100-400 and seem to never have enough length. Kind of an odd request but I was wondering if anyone has a comparison of a 400 mm shot to ...
  • When shooting BIF your shutter speed should be fast enough that IS doesn't help.  I shoot with a 100-400L and if you are panning you should use IS mode 2 with that lens.  Most of the time when I ...
  • I have a 7d.  I do most things that R2D2 does except that if I am shooting BIF against a clear sky, I use all the focus points active.  If there is any background I use the expanded focus point ...
  • Every day I go for a walk of a couple of hours with my camera along the beach.  During the summer I mostly shoot BIF, dolphins, whales, boats, winter time I take lots of surfing shots plus the ...
  • Yes, I don't see any reason not to.  Like I said if you want to take a picture right at startup, just push the shutter and cleaning is stopped and the camera is ready to take a picture.
  • I don't believe this advice.  If you have the auto clean option running on startup and want to take a picture just push on the shutter button and it is stopped instantly and you are ready to shoot.
  • I have the same camera and lens.  I mostly shoot in hi-speed and AI servo focus as I am shooting either surfing or BIF, but I think you can get by shooting a little slower than some have ...
