  • Commented on photo Lighthouse in Miguel Mealha's photo gallery

    The clouds and flare add a wonderful dynamic to the image. Which lighthouse is this?

  • Printed in metal powder with a resin binder. Then fired until you have a sintered metal part. Find someone who is willing and able to design the part in 3D rendering software. Then go from there ...
  • Replied in Shutter priority
    Since shutter speed is your priority if you want to deliberately control motion blur, you may want to use shutter priority mode in combination with a sufficiently high ISO. You won't have to keep ...
  • Replied in Resizing
    Just no. Image size is nothing but pixels by pixels. A pixel is a pixel no matter how big the pixel is. An xPixels x xPixels image will be displayed at different dimensions depending on the pixel ...
  • In Photoshop, if you go to File -> Export -> 'Save for Web' there won't be any metadata in the JPG file. This will not be the highest quality JPG file but for Web use just fine if you save at 100% ...
  • An old fart gave me that sage advice.
  • Replied in No thanks!
    Amazon sent me an internal HDD in a plastic bag. They sent me a USB stick in a box surrounded by 5 inches of bubble wrap. Hopeless!
  • Any sufficiently hard particle between the lens surface and the cloth may scratch the lens coating and the glass itself. The particles you can't blow away or brush away with a soft brush can be ...
  • After our many wildfires the sensor on my E-M1 needed cleaning. Like with lens elements, over time, hazy deposits soil sensors, too. A marine environment also gets the sensor dirty over time.
  • Mold and fungus love dark and moist environments. Use your lenses in sunlight and don't store them for weeks or longer in the dark. After exposure to moisture, make sure the lens is thoroughly dry ...
  • It's a UWA lens. To what other UWA lens are you comparing the MTF?
  • You mean to say multiple backups are required. I agree. I disagree on SSDs being suitable for important data storage at all. Redundancy is paramount, sure. No argument there. My original post was ...
  • I cannot recommend an SSD for the storage or for the backing up of critical data files. SSD memory is not reliable enough for that and data recovery is more difficult compared to recovery from a ...
  • i5 and up is fine. Photoshop runs on 8GB RAM but it's a bit of dog. I find 16GB RAM sufficient, 32GB, which is what I have currently, is well enough for me. I'd really use an SSD for the OS and ...
  • I don't expect to ever give up using a desktop pc and a proper keyboard for photo editing and general use. More comfortable, more upgradeable, more repairable, and somewhat less costly. You want ...
  • It's not a review. It's a first look based on the spec sheet with commentary thrown in.

  • Proofreading has gone out the window.
