  • "Complicated" is a relative term. I would suggest that you use Canon's DPP that came with your camera. It can do quite a lot considering that it is free. Play with it for a while and see if ...
  • I'm running Linux Mint 17 (Cinnamon) and loving it...........especially that it's a LTS version. I've been reading that 17.1 is a worthy update, but I'm waiting a little while before committing. I ...
  • Mine is Linux Mint Qiana Cinnamon. No eye candy or fancy desktop effects.......just the plain vanilla background that comes with the install. Purely functional. When I want eye candy I surf the ...
  • This is what Linux is all about in layman's terms: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XTHdcmjenI http://audio-video.gnu.org/video/TEDxGE2014_Stallman05_LQ.webm Freedom of choice and sharing is a good ...
  • I agree with using whatever distro'e UI works best for you. I've been using Linux for many many years and have tried countless different distro's. I've finally (for now) settled on the most ...
  • Sorry Fish, I can't help there. I've only heard of this being done on the 10-22, as it's such a popular lens for crop cameras. Maybe it's possible with some other EF-S lens, but I just haven't ...
  • The Canon 10-22 EF-S lens can be used on a FF Canon body (from 12mm to 22mm) with a simple and inexpensive ($10 approx.) official Canon part swap: http://www.benjacobsenphoto.com/2010/gear/canon-10 ...
  • Good review here: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/windows-10-preview.html
  • Replied in Cloning an ssd
    For cloning and/or imaging: http://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live.php For partitioning: http://gparted.org/ Both free and powerful. Read instructions carefully and use with caution. Brief tutorial ...
  • This guy raises similar points as well: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linux-security.html The title refers to Linux, but it encompasses Windows as well. Myself; I use Linux (with absolutely no ...
  • I totally agree. Once I read about it and tried it (and got used to it), I was hooked. I like to do handheld "artsy" type of macro work with wide open apertures......sharp objects with creamy ...
  • @ Feraudy: My thoughts exactly. If the curved sensor was attached to the lens, that would solve the problem of having a fixed camera/lens combo. It would just be a matter of connecting the lens to...

  • @Adrian: I know Canon would dare to do that in a heartbeat. My collection of FD lenses became obsolete when their EOS took over. I can adapt them, but that's not the point here. Manufactures will...

  • Your wife could use Google Docs (on a Chromebook) to do her text/office work, and then send you the file over the Internet, and then you could print it for her with your computer/printer setup.
  • If you are doing just flowers (or something that large), I don't think the Canon MPE-65 would work that well. That's a very specialized lens, usually used on small objects like insects. It's ...
  • This is not a CF reader according to the link. I think the OP was interested in a case mounted CF capable reader.
  • Actually I do change resolutions quite often. It depends on what I'm doing. There is one caveat however. I rarely use multiple windows..........so if you do that, I could see where there could be ...
  • Why don't you just change the resolution (on your new monitor) when using the problem programs........until you find a fix, or use a dual monitor set-up with your old monitor, for the problem ...
  • Here's a follow up to the link above: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/firefox-29-sucks.html Enjoy!!!
  • Here's how to fix Firefox 29: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/firefox-disable-australis.html
