  • 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 ...
  • Are there any firewall rule changes?  Any newly installed patches?  Any security policy changes?  Any expired passwords? There may be messages in the Windows Event Viewer on those affected machines ...
  • Most of us won't be affected yet.  At 10Gbps, at least current SATA attached SSDs can keep up with the 10Gbps network, wired or wireless.
  • Replied in Read this.....
    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 ...
