  • On Intel's site, drilling down to the specifications for the integrated GPU reveals that the maximum resolution is 4096x2160@60Hz. The NUC specs say that the NUC can drive three displays. The ...
  • If you don't mind 'used' and 'old', there are many choices of DSLR and M4/3 systems.  Just be careful where you buy – you might want to shop at a reputable dealer (for peace of mind) even if that ...
  • I wonder if the issue is that you have a few very bright spots (the lights), and a lot of very dark ones (everything else).  The camera may have exposed the picture correctly overall, but the ...
  • The subject's face looks blurry.  The shutter speed (1/4000th of a second) was more than sufficient to control hand shake and subject movement, so I'm guessing that the camera chose the wrong ...
  • A Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port can support a 5K monitor (if the machine does), and offers a way of adding docking stations.  USB 3.0 offers neither of those things. I agree that if we are talking ...
  • Those were the only two standalone weather sealed M4/3 lenses that turned up in the results of a search ("weather sealed micro four-thirds lens") on a retail site. The search also turned up a ...
  • This reminds me of a joke – at least, I hope it is a joke – about a user who was having trouble with a computer. The user called the help line, and the support person had the user try various ...
  • Thanks for catching the older ones that I missed. I believe that the Olympus OM-D E-M5 is the lightest of all of these bodies – about the same weight (without lens) as the OP's D3300.
  • It's a weird comparison, but one with some basis. The OP talked about how she might be willing to move from a D3300 to a Nikon M4/3 system if it was lightweight and weather sealed.  She mentioned ...
  • Two weather-sealed Micro Four-Thirds bodies that you can get today are the Panasonic Lumix-GH4 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. Each weighs about 20 ounces (without lens), compared to the D3300, ...
  • The manual does not describe any way of directly transferring files to a computer without using PlayMemories.  One of the referenced Web pages indicates that there are  Windows and Macintosh versions.
  • Cameras that shoot RAW + JPEG vary in how they generate the JPEG file.  A camera may create full-resolution, high-quality JPEGs suitable for immediate use, or low-resolution, low-quality JPEGs ...
  • The distance from the sensor shouldn't be an issue.  In Canon's system, the EF-S lenses are allowed to protrude further into the body, but the mount was designed specifically with full-frame EF ...
  • Replied in F2.8 or F4.0
    If you set one to f/8 and one to f/4, there will be differences!  Did you mean to say to set both lenses to the same f-stop, e.g., f/4? Even if you equalize the aperture, (1) One lens can have a better ...
  • So tell your travel agent that it is not OK to "save a few pounds" by booking your summer vacation on Skaro. "Halt!  Identify yourself!" "I am a tourist.  Here is my visa." "You are an enemy of the ...
  • Where in the linked article does it say that Corbyn "wants the West to be like the UN"?  In a quick scan and quick listen to the video, I didn't find any reference to the UN. Wasn't the UN approach ...
  • They shouldn't both be set to Commander mode.  The one on the camera should be set to Commander mode and the other should be set to Remote mote.
  • There's a constant f/4 version of that lens?  For only $100 new? The variable-aperture one that is f/5.6 at the telephoto end is at least $500 at reputable dealers.  Why would someone with a new ...
  • I believe the actual requirement is that there has to be an active CLS controller on your camera. This can be 1. The camera's own flash (if the hot shoe is empty, and the camera is capable of ...
  • Replied in New computer
    What do you use to import images from cards? That machine has USB 2.0 ports and Firewire 800 ports – but no USB 3.0 ports.  So you might be able to speed up imports by getting a USB 3.0 PCI-e card ...
