  • Thanks!  Got to call it like I see it (literally in this case).  Just to be clear, I am not saying there is anything wrong with the retina display, just that I think the "excitement" that others ...
  • I took a look at the retina iMac today at a Mac store.  I have to say that I was somewhat underwhelmed.  Comparing it side by side with a regular display the difference is perceptible but not ...
  • Buena Vista, With the additional information your give us, I would suggest a Rugged Lacie HDD with the USB2/3 and TB interface for now.  The smallest of these is 1TB and costs $200.  That should ...
  • It would be useful to know how much of your storage is taken up now and how fast it is growing. Also, it would help to know what software your are using for viewing, post processing, etc. The ...
  • Mine is now on order.  I have several Leica lenses including a 50 sumilux, but 35mm is my favourite focal length, and this one looks too good to pass up.
  • It would be nice if it had thunderbolt 2, but that would not make any difference to the scan time from USB2. The scanning time is governed by the time to mechanically 'scan' the negatives. ...

  • My problem was that I couldn't boot into anything. Not the DVD drive, not the clone drive, not the recovery partition of the HD. And it is indeed the original hardware. Nothing changed or added.
  • My late 2009 iMac 27, has for the second time recently stopped the boot up at the full white screen stage – no Apple icon, no spinning disk, just the clear and empty white screen.  It would not ...
  • If you are getting slower operation than normal and sudden freeze ups, then there is a possibility that your HD is on the way out. You should have good backups in place at this time. If it was my ...
  • Thanks Mark, I went the the site you suggested but downloaded from there the similarly functioned Capture Time to Exif: http://www.photographers-toolbox.com/products/jbeardsworth/jbcapturetimetoexif/ ...
  • Replied in It works fine.
    I do own an M240 and coded and uncoded lenses.  The camera selects a pair of frame lines based on the lens mounted.  The detection is mechanical.  The 6 bit coding is used for a few more minor ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions.  I have taken a quick look, but will need to spend some more time on this later. Peter.
  • I often get sent pictures by family members that I want to keep in LR, but I don't want to be cluttered up with the associated metadata (camera, lens, etc.).  I want to strip that out.  Also, I ...
  • I personally doubt that the Mac Mini will be upgraded before the Mac Pro has seen substantial shipments, and that will not be until about early summer.  However, I would be delighted to be proved ...
  • When I am on the road I sometimes need to use Photoshop CS6 (and Lightroom) on FF files (Nikon D800E).  I have a mid 2010 MacBook Air with a whopping 4GB RAM and 256 SSD.  It can happily stitch ...
  • Replied in Add'l info
    Why not move your library onto the internal SSD as you suggest, and if that solves your problem, then plan for a fast external Thunderbolt SSD such as Lacie offer in 512GB and 1TB versions?  That ...
  • It's a  while since I have done this, but the following comes to mind: De-authorize iTunes (so that you don't exceed the number of computers allowed at a time.) In Settings, set up a generic ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    I think I need to correct myself.  The MBPr does not, I believe have user upgradable memory.  I think it would be a great choice, but I suggest 16GB RAM and at least the 512 SSD.
  • Replied in Thanks
    The answers are 'yes' and 'most probably'.  But if it was me, I would just buy the Apple offering and be done.  Also, if this is going to be your only computer, I would consider adding an external ...
  • I travel with my Mac Book Air (late 2010, 4GB RAM, 256 SSD) and two Lacie Rugged drives – the one's with orange plastic covers – I use one of these for the LR catalog and pictures and the other ...
