  • If none of the lenses that anyone suggested that you get really pique your interest... you might think about spending the cash on: - A flash (430EXII is pretty good) - A good sturdy tripod ...
  • My opinions of your options/questions... No, not worth the upgrade.  Mine is/was really fragile (subject to damaging the micro-USM mechanism if not treated very carefully). I have the 10-22 and ...
  • It is back focusing.  No, I mean front focusing. Is it too soon to start one of those threads???
  • Replied in Spotting Scope
    Thanks for the replies steelhead and dom... I will probably end up getting the Pentax 80mm scope.  From what I have read, it's better optical quality makes up for some of the advantage that the ...
  • Created discussions Spotting Scope
    I am thinking of getting a spotting scope for viewing things that are about 3 - 4 km away, and be able to recognize their faces at that distance. I'm thinking a Celestron 80mm or 100mm objective ...
  • Well, of that $950 difference $700 is the difference in memory ($200 for the upgrade from 8 to 16GB) and storage ($500 for the upgrade from 512GB to 1TB).  Your initial statement was a comparison ...
  • Replied in Too many cooks
    In my defense, I did put it in quotes. My point was that the PC (and Android) world(s) seem to encourage development by the world, while the Apple world seems to try to keep everything within ...
  • Replied in Too many cooks
    If I were a software developer I might care what the answer to that question is, but I'm not.  I'm just a guy who uses both types of computers, and I find that there is more software available for ...
  • Replied in Too many cooks
    I agree wholeheartedly with this complaint about Windows and MS office... it was working fine, but they feel the need to 'improve' it so we all get forced to relearn how to use them.  Not very ...
  • Good point, I don't know either way, but in any case I am glad that he's gone. FWIW, I don't think that he had the self-awareness to figure out that he was causing more harm than good to the forum ...
  • First off, do "little censors" sound different than "big censors" when they have a party?  Usually the debate is that they have worse IQ or worse high ISO performance (bringing this back to ...
  • Well, any subject (not just LR vs. aperture) that he discussed ended up diverting into daft arguments.  He just wouldn't consider the other side of an argument. It's funny that he was banned, as he ...
  • Do you have a link to support that statement?
  • joger has been implying that it running an apple is nearly free and it takes no effort or research in order to purchase it and use it.  Don't you think there is a "wee bit" of effort involved in ...
  • But the concern was fabricated, because I posted links to a NEW computer from the DELL site, with the specifications that he described, that showed that the computer is currently on sale for less ...
  • OK, good point about it being from an e-bay seller... I think he brought that up because that is where he actually purchased his (and he indicated it was new at the time). Let's check the Dell website:
  • OK, so taking the $1000 monitor out of the cost of the Apple system and the $300 monitor out of the cost of the Dell, which results in prices of $1200 for the Mac and about $900 for the Dell, how ...
  • I have JavaScript enabled, and no special stuff blocking pop-ups or anything else... But I did figure out what is going on. It was related to the default zoom that I set for Safari to make the text ...
  • Also, I've been reading about EULA's and one interesting point was raised... many of them allow you to make a single back-up copy of the software. Which means that anyone who is dilligent about ...
  • Not criminally illegal, but it could be civilly illegal... It is subject to whether or not the court that were to hear the case, if Apple ever pursued it, determined if the EULA was ...
