  • Nice! I have an RRS L plate that I enjoy. My single row pano rig is a 100mm nodal slide that I cut the end off of and polished. Now it is about a 70mm nodal slide. Required for the Rokinon 7.5 mm ...
  • d) hardly ever use. I use it if there is light from the side or front that may cause issues.
  • Hi, as the poster who added the comments and picture, let me say I am sorry you saw this as stone throwing. I am a 68 year old retired man missing a bladder because of cancer. I hope you have the ...
  • Or, they get lenses and cameras from the folks who buy first, then sell first (ebay?), or on special or refurbished from Olympus. (please notice the number who claimed "I had it" for cameras not ...
  • Replied in The trinity
    Rokinon FE75MFT-B 7.5mm full fame fisheye (also sold as Sanyan) for easy single-row panoramas and fisheye shots.
  • I like it. The cloning was fairly cleanly done (certainly, I have not done as well in some of my published work.). I much prefer the cloned version but believe it might be possible to improve ...
  • It should work just fine, if you are OK with the small screen and high price--sort of a Leica brand computer. It really is more power than you need for most photo editing, but the IPS display is ...
  • Replied in My Needs.
    LightRoom and MS Office does not need much to work well, but will use all the cores you have during import, export and other batch tasks. My preferences would be: decent Intel I5 or I7 processor. ...
  • If there really is only one engineer, he or she is very good indeed. Hope well cared for :-D
  • JimC's comments about Lightroom use of video boards is fine, but begs a question: anything else helpful? LR should have nearly instant response for most editing operations with the Dell XPS 8700 ...
  • - try and pivot around the front of the lens, keeping the camera level. For tripod shots, this normally requires either a tripod collar or a nodal slide. Handheld, use your foot as a pivot point ...
  • Do not know the specific answer for your set of chips, however: 1. Your BIOS must have configuration for any SATA ports that can be hardware RAID enabled. This is because the number of drives and ...
  • I had the rear dial fail without water damage on my EM-1 while still under warranty. Olympus fixed it for my (sent in through the camera store where I had purchased it). They did not replace the ...
  • The 44C board temp is high. My system is seldom over 25C unless being driven very hard. Each degree C in temp reduces system lifetime. If you can add a fan for the disks, or something, you should ...
  • There are three things to consider: 1. change the boot order to have the internal hard drive first. Boot order is typically changed independently of boot devices in a different menu. There should ...
  • Other suggestions on this thread may be worthwhile. Your power supply may be intermittent--or maybe not. I had a system that developed the same symptoms. It would go for a while not booting exactly ...
  • Replied in epson 3880
    Found a quote about possible updates to the Epson line from someone well enough connected to already have the SureColor SC-P600 13" printer to test. Epson rumors from December 2014 "Epson suggest ...
  • Replied in epson 3880
    Agree that this question is oft asked. Looks like there are some pretty strong "hints" coming from Epson that a new printer will arrive in 17" format maybe sometime this year. The SureColor SC-P600 ...
  • As others have noted, go with a full SSD. If you can, get a 250 or 180 GB SSD. The 250 will allow you to just forget about tuning your apps and purging random junk off the C drive. Also lots of ...
  • Maybe yes. I did about two months ago. (not a totally new system, actually, just a new mainboard, processor, memory, and C drive).  My Photos and video are all on a software mirrored set of 2 TB ...
