  • There is no standard for tripod load capacity. It is pretty much a meaningless number especially when comparing different manufacturers. -- - Bill
  • Thanks for the update. I'll give it a try later tonight. Do you see any noticeable speed up when using the GPU turned on? Have you tried to objectively measure the speed difference of particular ...
  • Lee Big Stopper is what I hear most people recommend. Note that I haven't bought one, yet, but it is on the wish list. -- - Bill
  • Here's a couple tries... You've got a lot of dust spots on the sensor in the sky.  I fixed a couple, but got tired of that, so thought it might look better with a little fog, instead.
  • You can uninstall Catalyst & all AMD software.  Restart Lightroom and make sure the checkbox is unchecked (it should automatically uncheck).  Then reinstall the Catalyst drivers.  There is also a ...
  • Seems like you have found the fix.  Disable the GPU as you have, and also disable it in Photoshop camera raw preferences.  Complain loudly to AMD and Adobe to get it fixed for real. There were ...
  • Using Windows, my lens profile for the Samyang 14mm is located under: C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\ It seems similar to your path, except for some slight ...
  • You disable it just for Lightroom under edit->preferences->performance. Likewise, if using Photoshop, you can disable it under the camera raw preferences. -- - Bill
  • Just noticed you were asking about Windows 10. Sorry, no clue about that except to just disable the GPU. I don't see any benefit from using it in LR, anyway. I hope Adobe and AMD can fix this ...
  • There are still problems using LR with some AMD GPUs and the latest 15.7 drivers. I had to back off to 14.4, which seems to work ok with the GPU enabled. Another option is to disable the GPU. -- - Bill
  • There was a recent attack on the DPR PM system. This seems related to that. See the Site Feedback forum for details. They have closed the hole that allowed new members to send PMs, and purged ...
  • Here's a couple.
  • Replied in Tripod Heads
    Try asking this question in the accessories forum. Lots of tripod and ball head experts there. -- - Bill
  • Looks like the moderator in that forum is fine with your post. That's all that matters. Not sure if you will get much response, or the feedback you want, though. This place is mostly full of gear ...
  • Replied in ActionCentral
    I'm just glad to learn that there is an archived version of atn central that still works. Thanks to the poster who provided the link! -- - Bill
  • But, if you use a smart object workflow in Photoshop, you can go back to the raw file, make changes, and have those changes ripple through to the final photoshop output. There is a cost to doing ...
  • Replied in ActionCentral
    Well, I do see a link on that page to a digital greycard by Chip Springer. I'll have to try it when I get home tonight to see if downloads, and how different it is from the version you provided. -- ...
  • I like your B&W conversion. I don't think I could improve on it without changing it substantially from your vision. Not sure if your mother would like it, though. She might prefer to have some of ...
  • Replied in ActionCentral
    Did you look at the link he provided? It is an archive which appears to still have files that can be downloaded. -- - Bill
  • Having made the good-faith attempt to get permission to post the link, and getting no response, perhaps you should just try to post the link, if you can. If you can't post the link, then you ...
