    In defense of SSDs, every spinning disk will fail. A programmer I know had an HD fail within the week he purchased it. Long term strategy would therefore make an SSD advisable for archiving. My ...

    Right on the 3 disk brands. About SSD, what good does it do to have extraordinary read/write speeds if the cable connecting it can't keep up. And from there, if you were to buy expensive TB ...

  • As long as I don't change cameras, Aperture will continue doing a great job for me. An as long as I don't change the OS from Mavericks. Yosemite would have to offer a lot for me to switch. But ...
  • You can go to a welding supply store and they still sell magnesium ribbon. It is used to 'weld' two steel parts together. You simply wrap a short length of the ribbon around the gap to be welded, ...
  • Loved the photos. The ladies in hats will dazzle my wife and daughter. And I spotted a motorcycle I once owned, a BSA Gold Star single. My all time favorite out of 6 English bikes I owned. Gary San ...
  • Who in the world makes a Titanium tripod?
  • How fast are the any of these scanners (doing color transparencies or negs) and what kind of data connector do they have?
  • There is a 1 year-old 60m f2.8 Micro in my camera bag. Nikon refers to macro as "Micro" It is a G lens, meaning no aperture ring. It has to be used on a camera that has electronic f-stop ...

  • I bought a copy of DxO pro for $150 at the same time I purchased Aperture and LR-5. I wanted to evaluate them all and sell the discards on eBay. I kept Aperture.  DxO won't work with it, in any case. ...
  • They provide no flash strength adjustments for Manual mode, and won't synch up with the Nikon TTL. I use the two modes, half and half. I was on the phone with BH Photo this morning. The agent was ...
  • As soon as the stores open tomorrow I'm going to order a set of RF triggers. Probably the Phottix, or one of the proprietary brands at BHPhoto. That might be the Impact or Vello brands. Whichever ...
  • That name was tossed at me. And I have heard nothing but good things about the brand. The sticking point would be the cost. I have priced PocketWizards, RadioPoppers, YongNuo from China, PixelPro ...
  • I'm the original poster. I made my choice. Mike Hagen wrote the book Nikon Creative Lighting System, published by Rocky Nook. I have the book and attended one of Mike's flash workshops in San ...
  • I have had a D7000 since spring of 2012. I still get focus surprises occasionally. Instead of going into theories about focus, or surfing menus in the Custom Setup Menu area. Or pushing the AF ...

    Back up a minute before you feel offended. I have no familiarity with Nikon Australia The United States branch is a wholly owned subsidiary. The employees work for Nikon-USA. And, as I stated they ...
  • They left out Variable ND filters. The filter has two rings. Rotate one of them and the darkening effect changes from slight to intense. Depending on the range of filter you select. One filter thus ...
