A half century and counting in photography and almost anything photography related. It's all good. Simple or complex, a camera is just a tool to capture images.

  • Contact your credit card company and dispute the charge. Amazon has been hit/miss lately. My orders get here eventually, but the suggested delivery date and the delivery date are often weeks apart. ...
  • I started with Four Thirds, quickly moved to Micro Four Thirds and never looked back. It's my primary system, my "go to", what I own. I've used other cameras and systems, but I like Panasonic.
  • Yes, a long time ago, and yes I had backups. It's not if, but when, storage fails.
  • True, but how often does a child manage to keep something intact for three years? There's a few ChromeOS tablets, too. All kidding aside, I haven't tried side-loading yet, but it's basically the ...
  • For children consider a Chromebook. There are durable models for kids.
  • I have a Panasonic USB cable from my GX7. Same cable, just newer, and never used. Yes, I can delete a file on the cameras using either my Win 10PC or Chromebook. That still doesn't rule out your ...
  • Yes, but hardware can contain software i.e.: firmware and bios. And now there's UEFI. It's true that viruses are code. This is all well beyond the topic. In my opinion Win10 is secure. So are the ...
  • Pretty much. I don't want to go off topic into something as intensely dull as ancient OS's and network security. Win10, as far as OS's go, is secure. If you need more security than that then, Win10 ...
  • Excellent way of explaining JPEG. I wasn't perfectly clear that it's not the open/close sequence, but open/save, and the save options.
  • Viruses are NOT just (executable) data files on the drive. They can be on the Internet or on a local network and reach across. With a router, your computer is just another connected device, a ...
  • If (you) can get thru two firewalls and the anti-virus and anti-malware apps, and get to the Registry, you could, in theory, add lines of code to execute on relaunch. But then you would have to ...
  • Have you tried a different USB cable? It could be the port on the newer camera has a bit of corrosion or dust in it, too. I haven't transferred images via USB in a long time, so I'm guessing. I've ...
  • I don't "justify ignoring equivalence". I don't even bother with it. I own and work with Panasonic Lumix cameras. 25mm is "normal", if that detail matters. I've owned and worked with a lot of ...
  • The default ID and password are usually on the bottom of the router. That leaves finding out the IP address of the router. A quick search came up with 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.100.1 (type ...
  • I agree. Nothing I've mentioned is absolute, just distilled a bit for clarity. JPEG is a great format, but so much depends on the software. Thankfully it's all gotten a lot better. Raw data is ...
  • To me, HCB captured images like a natural media artist, because he was. I understand that mindset because natural media art was my first art form(s). His books are excellent because they're more ...
  • A little over thought but very good. Actually Raw is NOT a true representation. The Raw converter makes a good representation, but if you were to see the image uncorrected and unconverted it would ...
  • There's a lot of old, out of date, Windows info out there. Win10 is very different. "The best" is debatable. I'm sure the Mac people will hyperventilate over that idea. "Out of the box" Win10 is ...
  • There are some solid routers out there, but there have been improvements. You can do some amazing things with routers to lock them down. The new managed and mesh routers are very good. Just a bit ...
  • I was a commercial photographer for a long time since it paid the bills reliably. So, my work has been seen. Fame? Not a bit. Even when I handled the entire project - nope. You don't always get ...
