  • It seems like only very recently Wasabi has cracked how to "decode" the LC-e17 type battery. I bought 2 Wasabi batteries and charger back in mid-July, and those I received were the previous ...
  • OP wrote: " I have a 5K iMac at home but it would be nice to sell that and live with the laptop." Don't sell the iMac! No MacBook is going to compare to that 5k display. There's nothing like having ...
  • I'd like to update my experience. I had been trying to establish a connection to My MacBook Pro and my 2012 Mac Mini -- both of which run El Capitan (10.11.6) as the "main OS". I do keep external ...
  • Think long and hard as to whether you really need the 1tb drive. I consider the buy-in cost to be prohibitive. I would think 8gb of RAM would be fine, but I could be wrong. The money you would have ...
  • Replied in Which iMac?
    I'd get the 27" 5k iMac and sit a little further back... ;) The RAM in the 27" model is upgradeable by the user (8gb is good to start). The 512gb SSD is a good compromise between price and size ...
  • Steve wrote above: "I've always said that if I did not own a camera or lenses, the RX 10iii would be very compelling as a do-it-all camera." This one has been out for a while now. I'm wondering how ...
  • The iMac has the great 5k display. Get one and get a bigger desk if you want to keep using the existing display...
  • I can establish a wifi connection with the Mac. I can verify that the 77d is sending out its "host SSID" by using either "iStumbler" or "WiFi Scanner." EOS Utility 0.1.14 "recognizes" that the ...
  • Created discussion thread Connecting 77d to MacBook using wifi...
    Hello all I have a Canon 77d, and I'm also a Mac user. I'd like to connect the camera to my MacBook (or Mac desktop) via wifi, and control it via the EOS Utility. I can make the initial connection, ...
  • OP wrote: I'm strongly leaning towards getting an hdd model, and running my os of an external usb 3 ssd." The internal SSD's on the new iMacs are 3x-4x as fast as ANY external USB3 SSD you can ...
  • How much free space remains left on your boot SSD?
  • Replied in Remote Backup
    Back in my working days, I kept my offsite backup in my locker at work. But I lost the ability to do that after retirement. These days, I keep my offsite in my car. Granted, it's not that far "off ...
  • Created discussion thread Battery Box for LC-E17
    I'm a Canon 77d user, but the 77d uses the same LC-E17 size batteries as do some models of the Rebel line, so I'll post this here. I was looking for a way to store the batteries that would protect ...
  • Although Apple doesn't provide easy access to it, there is still a version of iPhoto that can be used with Sierra. It's iPhoto version 9.6.1. No previous version will work -- only this one. As I ...
  • I believe 8gb of RAM is "the minimum configuration" on all 27" iMacs now. If you need more, it is MUCH cheaper to buy and install yourself. For longevity, I would recommend a "straight" SSD instead ...
  • Save the file to the desktop first -- just click on it in Mail, and then "drag-n-drop" on the desktop. Next, import it into Lightroom via the file menu. Does that work any better?
  • The "current" Mini was introduced in 2014 and is now 3 years old. The GPU capabilities probably aren't up to handling 42 megapixel images without a little struggling. I think you ought to RE-think ...
  • Hello all -- I've read that it's possible to use older Minolta lenses with Sony A-mount cameras (I have an a58). But... just how old? I've got a Minolta XD-11 film SLR from the mid-late 1970's, ...
  • You don't -have to- give up iPhoto if you don't want to. The last release of iPhoto (version 9.6.1) runs fine with El Capitan, Sierra, and I believe it even runs with High Sierra. It's difficult, ...
  • This is very easy to do. My workflow: (1) I use the Opera browser (one could use Firefox) (2) I use an Opera extension "YouTube Downloader Lite"
