Yakuza1970's recent activity

  • Whenever I post process photos on Aperture I've taken with either my D7000 or RX100mIII shot at 1600 or 3200, I just shake my head in amazement. I worked in a photo lab for 20 years ago and I can ...
  • That USSR TSAR Bomba 100 mt thermal radiation radius is insane! I live near San Francisco and if detonated in San Francisco it would basically annihilate the entire Bay Area with radiation with ...
  • Wild Salmon.
  • Never really thought about using it as a tablet - something to consider! My current laptop is connected to the interactive whiteboard via HDMI cable. Once disconnected from the keyboard, I would ...
  • Thanks everyone for your insights. Still have not decided on a computer. I may wait until summer and set it up for the next school year over summer break. Yeah the SSD is a "want". Most nine year ...
  • Created discussions Laptop Recommendations
    I'm looking to possibly purchase a new laptop in the next 3-4 months (maybe sooner) to replace a five year old Dell laptop that I use in my 4th grade classroom with an Epson interactive ...
  • The mIII is pretty good as it is. I'd hate to sacrifice some of it's features to gain others. I'd be surprised if Sony could make any game changing improvements in the mIV - probably just some ...
  • Again, thanks for all the information - more than I could have imagined. I didn't know backing up data could be so complex! I got my iMac Retina and am setting it up as I type. Wow, what a screen! ...
  • Thanks for all the recommendations and advice. I had never heard of crashplan - it looks like something I may use. How is the free version as I just want a local backup that I can set and forget.
  • Created discussions Back up Recommendation
    Ordered a new iMac Retina and am wondering what software you would recommend for back ups. I ordered it with a 500 gb SSD and plan to use Aperture (will probably move to the new Apple Photos app ...
  • Thanks johnbandry and robgendreau for your help. Yes, I cannot boot up. When I try, the apple logo goes on the screen, pink vertical lines appear then it restarts. This process goes over and over ...
  • I had been thinking about getting the 5K retina iMac since it came out but my 2011 27" iMac was still working fine until the graphics card recently died. I decided to take take the plunge and get ...
  • How compact do you want the camera? Do you want interchangeable lenses? How much do you want to spend? There are several really good compact cameras out there right now that have fast lenses and ...
  • A couple of my favorite sight gags from the Simpsons: Springfield's discount "big box" store is called "Try and Save" and their gun store is called "Bloodbath and Beyond". Love it!
  • For all of you interested in education, I would highly recommend watching "Finnish First" by Dan Rather. FYI: The documentary is a bit over 50 minutes. http://blip.tv/hdnet-news-and-documentaries/d ...
  • Beautiful shot! I drive 280 often and always see the fog creeping over the mountains. Where exactly did you take this shot if you don't mind me asking?
  • I'm a 4th grade teacher and often take photos of my students during class while they're working. If I want them to smile I sometimes say "Imagine your brother (or sister) bald" which usually gets ...
  • My two cents: looks like the RX-10 would be a better fit for you than the RX100m3 although I would also seriously consider the A6000 since it's certainly a camera you can grow with. I have the ...
  • Created discussions Aperture RAW Updates
    Now that Apple has axed Aperture, do you know if they will still have RAW updates for new cameras in the near future? I just bought a Sony RX100 mIII and was hoping for an Aperture RAW update soon.
