  • Created discussions Aperture? How Long?
    Does anyone know how long until Apple makes it impossible to use Aperture on an updated Mac? I've been using Aperture for years and I dread learning a new photo editing/organizing program. I ...
  • I also have a D7000 and have been thinking about the D750 too. I'd love to get the Nikon 24-70 as I use my Nikon 17-55 2.8 on my D7000 all the time so it would be a natural transition. However, ...
  • It looks like Sony is following Apple's model for model releases: big changes every other year just like the iPhone 5 was a big change then the 5s was a minor upgrade then the iPhone 6 was a big ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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?
