    PayPal has been this way for quite a few years in my experience.  I had to train myself to click the alternative payment method and then select CC.  This happened shortly after a bank account was ...
  • The same item can be found on Amazon wit the same price but shipping was like $1.98. Many items on eBay can be found on Amazon and prices may not be that different. Amazon prime with 2 day free ...
  • This has been the only way in the past before the high speed film or better sensors came along.  The drawback to this method is the loss of ambient. The photos tend to have a "cave" look with dark ...
  • I agree with you that large bodies are not always needed for DSLRs, especially the ones with cropped sensors.  Canon does make some light and small APS-C bodies. I owned a Canon 350D (aka Rebel XT) ...
  • I am sorry to disagree. The aperture equivalence no only relates to the DOF but also directly relates to light gathering ability as it factors in the sensor, We all know that the sensor size ...
  • Both the Nikon P340 and Samsung EX2F have a tiny 1/1.7" sensor which has a crop factor of 4.6x vs 1.7x on the 1" sensor based cameras. That means: F1.4 is equivalent of 3.8 on the 1" sensor based ...
  • No many P&S' exist to satisfy the requirement.  The Sony RX100 series would be the closest but it does not provide too much zoom.  The Panasonic FZ-1000 (I own one) has more zoom but the lens is ...
  • I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 which has a 1" sensor and does a wonderful job with stills and video.
  • Yes they exist. I just bought one last month to replace the old Canon USB scanner. My new Brother DCPL2540DW does wireless scanning to any PCs on the network.  It also acts as a standalone copier ...
  • I bought a reflector set online (amazon) and they cost about same as a good car shade.  Some no name ones cost about the same as car shades. Of course, reusing what we have would have the lowest ...

  • What is the capacity of MPortable?  These days one would need to backup multiple memory cards and the size of memory cards keeps getting bigger.  I have 16, 32 and 64GB cards.  A 64 or even 128 GB ...
  • Yes. It has a free app, Gizmo, for iOS and Android platforms.  I opt to purchase a third party app, JRemote for more features.
  • It's already being done by a number of vendors. What would differentiate one product from the others would be doing something others don't do, doing it better and more robustly and doing it at a ...
  • Replied in Nice - but
    does it exist?  It wouldn't be practical either.  Audiophiles would never go for the MB mounted tube solutions.
  • My living room HTPC is running the Windows 7 and J River Media Center 19. The computer audio output is done via the Musical Fidelity Vlink-192 (asynch USB to SPIDIF) to the MF M1-DAC (24/192) to ...
