  • Wow! Paranoia rules! I was not teaming up and simply wasting some time with words. Read again to see where I get to criticise you - not. Hardly prolific posters, just been around a long time. Not ...
  • Replied in Posting history
    That made me think, do I waste time at an average of 5 posts per day for 18 years? Here I am retired so it doesn't matter but my time on the computer is roughly an hour or so before breakfast to ...
  • Replied in Welcome!
    The IBIS can be left on when both on or off the tripod it seems to be OK despite what the manual says. Maybe the IBIS simply "sleeps" if there's no movement detected. IBIS may even be of benefit ...
  • Replied in Welcome!
    Nice choice, simple small lens that delivers lots of fun plus good image quality. Naturally it only gets used by me for special situations, such as when the room is small and I'm trying to show ...
  • Replied in OM number?
    From Oz did some Googling and all I found is the contact page listing email only, no phone number. https://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/cameras_support/contact/index.html
  • Near me they are not so fearless, they do scatter more readily. Maybe because nobody locally is feeding them now so the local mobs are less used to being near humans. Maybe 30 years back we used to ...
  • A roll is actually a shake condition that only IBIS of the 3/5 axis variety can correct for. Otherwise I think the poster is stuck in another century and thinking of that awful film stuff.
  • Replied in A little list
    At times like this I look to my list of initialisations and acronyms to see if it is there, sure enough Minimum Focusing Distance . http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/olyepl1/81-terms.html If ...
  • Many years back when we did have a good lemon tree, they had the habit of occasionally pecking a chunk out of every lemon on the tree. Not testing for sweetness, just doing it because they can. Yea ...
  • We get all of the above here in the extreme north suburbs of Sydney. The sulphur crested cockatoos are the funniest to watch, but they are destructive. They chew the heck out of the trees in our ...
  • Replied in NAS talk
    Anything can work in a NAS. But longevity and reliability may differ. Really important for commercial use but average home use not so important as it will never work as hard. Years back with my ...
  • I read it that WD Gold is for heavy duty use in a PC, for NAS the preferred type would be WD Red or WD Red Plus. For an occasionally connected backup via USB then any drive will do the job.
  • I do buy what's cheap at the time, the last few years have seen a scattering of WD, Seagate and Toshiba HDD come into my backup stream, no problems with any HDD over many years. Only drive that ...
  • The actual focal length quoted there is truly the actual focal length of that lens. Due to the smaller sensor than the "standard" FF camera (same size as the old 35mm camera film frame) then that ...
  • Q1. What's wrong with using the SD card in the camera? As for output to a recorder I found this https://helpguide.sony.net/dsc/1920/v1/en/contents/TP0001211724.html?search=hdmi and also ...
  • Even in Sydney I see 4TB for AU$123 (=US$91) and that is with our 10% tax included. Though I am still only needing the occasional 2TB so far at AU$69 (=US$51) tax paid. Cheap enough to allow ...
  • As an aside, just now I downloaded DSM V7 to update my Synology DS420J from V6 and carry on to do some much overdue maintenance - such as data scrubbing which now started will take maybe 5 hours ...
  • Nothing wrong, it's the way the camera works. https://helpguide.sony.net/dsc/1720/v1/en/contents/TP0001561042.html If you remove the day's images and start afresh the next day with the card ...
  • Also Synology NAS (DS420J with 12TB of drives) for collecting everything that happens on all the computers we may use in the house, a bit over 4TB is currently used of the available 8TB capacity. T ...
  • Not an M7 owner but maybe the clues lie in this page https://helpguide.sony.net/dsc/1920/v1/en/contents/TP0002043840.html
