  • I agree with you.  10 vs 11mm translates to 16 vs ~18mm on FF.  The 10-18mm at 10mm on my M3 gives slightly wider view than the 17-40mm at 17mm on my 6D and 5D2.
  • Replied in Canon G5X
    The Canon G5 X has a built-in EVF and can be another alternative. I got the M3 kit with an EVF addon and the EOS lens adater as a gift but have not used it very much since I already have the ...
  • The Sony RX100 IV is a great camera but it is a bit pricy.  Canon has responded with 3 similar models, G7x, G7x Mark II and G5x. I have the G7x and like it but it does not have a viewfinder.  ...
  • with minimal fuss.  It works for me.
  • Replied in Dropbox?
    Have you thought about Dropbox or alike?
  • I am shooting with a 5D Mark II and a Panasonic FZ1000 together in low light church events all the time including the Christmas Eve candle light service. Images are shot in RAW and processed with ...
  • I've been running CS4 and CS5 on a pair of Dell 30" monitors (2560x1600) for 3 to 5 years.  Never had issues with font or toolbar/palettes sizes.  The Windows font is set to the normal 100%.
  • Replied in 6d vs Gh4?????
    I wouldn't give up the 6D. My last overseas travel kit was the 5D Mark II and Panasonic FZ1000. The FZ1000 is quite amazing for its price and its 4K video is pretty close to GH4. https://www.youtub ...
  • All future cameras should have their clocks set automatically like cell phones or radio calibrated watches.  Until then there is too much variation of human errors to rely on the Exif date time. If ...
  • It sounds like an overscan setting issue which can be corrected from the video driver or TV settings.
  • I have never used the share option with Smugmug although I had a pro account with them in the past. Would sending a link of a unlisted gallery with or without password protection work for your purpose?
  • I never used catalogs and do not wish to be tied down with someone's database. Even the session was kind of weird concert for me as I prefer to use the native file system. All I want is going to ...
  • Capture One was the first RAW processor that did batch processing with ease back in the digital dark ages of 2003.  I bought my first DSLR, the Canon Digital Rebel, aka the 300D.  Phase One had a ...
  • Agreed. IrfanView is the tool of choice that I used to rename image files from multiple cameras based on the exif photo taken date.  Windows 7 and above supports sorting by the photo taken date so ...
  • I have no experience with FreeNAS but, since the title says connecting HDDs to server via ethernet, it sounds like solutions are readily available which may not be FreeNAS based. Setting up a ...
  • Replied in Create Junctions
    Very likely the extra space is taken by applications, not the Windows operating system. Most space taken will be under the user profile %USERPROFILE% braches, AppData\Roaming and AppData\Local. I ...
