Jim Mohundro's recent activity

  • Perhaps it's the so-called "muscle memory" that's a challenge for some folks.  It's taken for me just a few dozen--well, maybe 100 to 200--shots to find my comfort with the AEL/AFL button to ...
  • Replied in Yes
    JimC and other contributors here-- As usual your expert advice has gotten to and through purchase of my new u2415 which is up and running, apparently well (I've not round to learning all the ...
  • Replied in No
    Thanks, JimC.
  • As I contemplate the arrival of my Dell u2415 in a few days and I've picked up my DVI to HDMI cable for the connection, it does appear (I've been wholly dependent on various online photographs) ...
  • Created discussions Another Thanks!
    My thanks as well to JimC, pictus, guido and many others for your patience in sharing your expertise.  I today ordered my Dell u2415 IPS monitor from B&H and DVI-HDMI cable from Blue Jeans Cable ...
  • Thanks for the tip. Somehow I'd missed that the u2413 was wide gamut and more complex for calibration. My choice is now narrowed to the u2415. There's been a lot of narrowing down over the last ...
  • Created discussions Dell U2415 versus U2413
    I've got a small medical issue out of the way and I'm ready to execute on my monitor upgrade.  Given my budgetary limitations and the significant advice I've received here, and some extra reading ...
  • Thanks.  I'll give it a try.
  • When I retired I undertook a roughly (sometimes "roughly" was the operative word) 3,000-image scanning project, using my Coolscan V and its Nikon software.  I scanned a few b&w negatives, many ...
  • And, based on the April 15 posting on his web site, Thom Hogan seems committed to publish before the end of summer.  It's a bit frustrating for us waiting for the D750 guide, but, given my great ...
  • I get the strong impression from this thread that unless one invests in one of the hardware-calibrating, wide-gamut >$500++ NEC, Eizo or other "professional IPS monitor and a relatively costly, ...
  • There's an Amazon link to a DVI/MI cable that frequent and very knowledgeable forum contributor JimC has provided in another recent thread on this forum.  I'll be purchasing that one if my final ...
  • Replied in The Back-Button
    As an old (manual) focus first, then shoot, film shooter, I never got a comfortable feel for the half-press focus, continue-press shutter release, and took immediately to the AF-on back-button ...
  • JimC, Would the perfectly functional low-fi speakers not driven by the sound card continue to function, or would they somehow be rendered out of commission by the new monitor, if I end up buying ...
  • Sky, I suppose the "standard" HDMI connection at the monitor is less unstable than the flimsy mini connectionn at the comouter outputs, but the Dell u2415 has no DVI inputs, only the HDMI and a ...
  • Good tip on the connections.  The Dell u2415 is one of my two monitor choices.  JimC has provided me a quite useful close-up photo of my NVidia GTX 650 card and, along with the DVI output(s), ...
  • Mr. Marshall, I quite appreciate your comments.  I wish that more electronics manufacturers like NEC and  B&H's Henry ______ were monitoring postings on DPR and other forums, and joining in with ...
  • Guido, NEC is in the business of selling monitors, not that there's anything wrong with that, so I prefer to deal with a firm or user with no economic stake in their opinion. Al Jolson billed ...
  • Although I believe, given that 1) the EIZO ev2336 Flexscan is not currently available anywhere, and 2) I hope to have my question re the relative sharpness or coarseness of the 1920 x 1200 display ...
  • Thanks, Guido. The TFT site is a good one, with sometimes a lot of emphasis on "flicker", but the site has not reviewed the NEC ea244WMI and links further to the German Prad site.  When the Prad ...
