  • Ah, the 35 1.4G... so many memories :) Lovely build, small and unobtrusive, loved to handle it. But if you complain about the autofocus with the D4 and the D5, you should have seen what it would do ...
  • I am a 24-70 VR owner who has changed his opinion radically over time. I owned together the 24-70 2.8 and the VR version, and at the time kept the VR: I was attracted by theVR, found the colours ...
  • Replied in Mirrorless/EVF
    First answer that comes to my mind? Yesterday I went to try the D850 (with scotch on the memory card door...). Better than the D810 in the hands, nice idea the iso button on top (at last). I shot ...
  • One thing you are not factoring in the equation: how radically better it is as a shooting machine. Nikon has this curious habit of changing very, very little from model to model, and yet ending up ...
  • Replied in Still a question
    The thread has offered a wealth of information, so thanks all. I have a further question to test the patience of the more technically inclined. It is this: would it be better to shoot uncompressed ...
  • Replied in 24mm 1.4g
    And then I stand corrected! :) I probably got carried away because my point was one of a compromise: I (personally... I know) don't find the bokeh too different between the two (there's less ...
  • By the way, I forgot to better specify how I intend to use a "safe" system. It'd be my ongoing archive. My Macbook Pro is limited to a 1Tb SSD, so as soon as pictures have been worked on, I tend to ...
  • Replied in don't get this
    This "flipping a bit" is something I'm inclined to believe. To test it, I took a .NEF file (14bit, lossless compressed), and started changing randomly few data internally with a HEX converter ...
  • Replied in 24mm 1.4g
    Hi Glen, neither I wish to meaninglessly knock on the 24 1.4G. I just don't use mine anymore, and felt like sharing the reasons. Perhaps newer lenses have been improved by Nikon? Our beloved brand ...
  • Replied in 24mm 1.4g
    Luck of the draw? Never sell it then (and am not joking nor being complacent). Beautiful colour, "transparent" at ƒ4, and very nice to handhold. If it even focuses reliably, then yours might be one ...
  • Replied in 24mm 1.4g
    I am not a fan: colour, for instance, is just not overly pleasing compared to the beautiful 24 1.4G I test lenses with live view, to ensure proper focus. Given that the 24 1.4G suffers from ...
  • Actually, it happened to me the other day. Weirdly enough, it happened while the file was still on the Macbook Pro's SSD. I imported few hundreds files, readied them, and exported the jpegs. Then, ...
  • That must have been a very, very tense moment... When one of my disks (at the time, I backed up on a single disk...) started clicking, I panicked. I am sure Raid and BTRFS can be difficult beast ...
  • In a moment of desperation (when the only idea of a backup for the NAS was another , similarly expensive, NAS), I even thought of going: (1) Raid 1 (2) 3 disks (3) BTRFS on one NAS. ...
  • Thanks John, hadn't thought of this, useful to know (but, as I answered to Noirdesir, I know not too much of the internals of Time Machine. I confess having put trust in Lloyd Chambers' articles on ...
  • You just gave me yet more motivation (Time Machine failures, I hadn't yet, luckily, stumbled upon those) to pursue this backup strategy. Thanks for the heads up on these other limitations, very ...
  • John, the solution seems very reliable (it took me a bit to digest the method :) ) I'd like a more automated solution though, because: (1) I truly wish to have this thing done automatically for me by ...
  • Hi Rob, If I understood this bit rot thing correctly, it can happen very easily unfortunately: data will eventually corrupt, and time Machine will end up backing it up in its corrupted state. Event ...
  • Thanks, it is reassuring that the idea works (I was afraid I was deluding myself...). Can I ask you: how did you configure your Synology? Do you run it as a Raid 5, or Raid 6? And... lastly: if I ...
  • True. On the other hand though, I'd like to have the computer do the checks for me, as doing it manually can become very time consuming. Thanks, Lory
