  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • Replied in Tele-converter
    Have both cameras, all 4 lenses and both TCs. The 12-40 seems to be more responsive and lighter than the 12-60. The extra stop helps. The MM3 makes balance/shooting harder for me. The stack with ...
  • I would like something about 2/3 of the way toward the more aggressive PP version. The PP version is pushing a bit against the "not real" for me, but version 1 was too flat. Also, for next time, ...
  • +1 on the advice recently offered and your current plan. Just sold my E-300 with its 2 kit lenses. Used my OMD EM-1 with the longer of the two to demonstrate the quality of the lens (using the MM3 ...

    Thank you, great answer.
  • Replied in Frosty Morn
    Wow! Thanks. Curious: What did you most need the HDR for, how far apart where the shots, what did you use to assemble them? With basically the same equipment, I am still searching for effective and ...
  • P is the mode you use for your preferred Panorama settings. Thought everyone knew that. Nice of Olympus to reserve an extra slot for this MySet.
  • Battery quality, especially longevity, is very dependent on the purity of the internal components. Impurities can manifest as a much reduced number of recharges--and/or as increased internal ...
  • A brief experiment suggests it may be possible to some extent. Equipment: OMD EM-1, Oly FL-50R (although the FL-36R appears to work the same way). Settings: (in "Gear menu" flash settings: X-Sync ...
  • Kerry, Sorry I had not checked this forum in a while. Glad you solved your own problem. As I had mentioned earlier, I had build a very similar system a week before your initial post. Sorry about ...
