About me:

I've been enjoying Photography for over 30 years using everything
from Instamatic cameras to large format. Digital experimentation
began in 2001, but I still use film when it is more appropriate.
Regardless, my darkroom is now fully digital and my enjoyment of
this hobby keeps on growing. I take delight in sharing with other
people, the wonders I see in God's creation.

  • Replied in Great Camera
    Congratulation on your purchase of a "Classic".  It is a very robust little camera and very powerful, even if it is missing a few "modern" features.  Mine is still going strong, even though it ...
  • Yes, good to know.  I'll make notes on performance with and without the RAID activated.
  • Thanks Howard, Would I expect a hit in performance using RAID 1?
  • Thanks.  I'll give it a try and let you know how it turns out.
  • Thanks guys, I'm wanting RAID 1 for safety, with regular Smart backups via SuperDuper to an external that gets rotated off site periodically. For speed, I plan on replacing the system disk ...
  • Created questions RAID on a Mac Pro?
    Is it possible to set up a mirrored RAID in two of the drive bays in a 2010 Mac Pro if you do not have there Mac RAID card?  At present, I have Drive 1 as the system drive; Drive 2 as a TM backup ...
  • I just upgraded to Yosemite and found my old version of iPhoto was no longer supported.  So I downloaded the latest version and when I started it up, it automatically found all my previous iPhoto ...
  • You will find the answers to a lot of your questions in tis How-To video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XWU9WVhmYw Basically, you can have C1P link to your Aperture Library, be it managed or ...
  • Thanks.  That helped a lot.  The challenge with knowledge databases is knowing the particular key words that are used that key not be obvious to everyone. Any words of wisdom on how the sync the ...
  • Aperture allowed me to have one registered copy on my lap top and my desk top at the same time.  Does anyone know if this is possible with C1P?  I have looked though their literature and have been ...
  • Stick them in a RAID enclosure or a NAS enclosure.  Run them as JPOD (just a pile of disks) or as a RAID 5 or RAID 10 to have some redundancy in case of an HDD failure. I have a QNAP Turbo NAS that ...
  • Thanks for sharing this.  I am a longtime Aperture user and I am looking for an appropriate replacement.  It is great to see differing points of view and experience to help me formulate a plan ...
  • Thanks for the advice and comments.  They are appreciated.  I am also concerned with how long the hardware will be supported by future operating systems.  Will likely go with something new a ...
  • I have both the Rokinon 14mm and Canon 17-40 mm lenses. The Rokinon is sharper and has better contrast. Super wide! The distortion is easily corrected with the PTLens plug-in. Manual focus is not ...
  • $800
  • Thanks.  I was planning on getting a high speed SSD for it and increasing the RAM.  Since I have not been looking seriously at new hardware since 2007, I was not sure how this one stacked up.
  • Created questions Mac Pro 5,1 worth it?
    I have an opportunity to pick up a mid 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 for a reasonable price.  Of course it is very expandable and upgradable and has firewire ports.  My question is, has it been eclipsed ...
  • There is nothing like the smell and feel of oiled cherry wood on my 4x5 field camera.  :-)
  • I run 3T WD Reds in my QNAP 419.  Two were good right from the start, the third was DOA and the fourth  died within a few days.  The replacements have been performing stellar now for almost 3 ...
  • Replied in Get a Holga
    It all depends upon what YOU want to do with the camera.  The 'Blads are wonderful cameras, but since you were originally interested in trying out medium format, it may be too much money for a ...
