  • Why are we trying to complicate matters? I run a Mac with Avast AV + anti malware software. If I want to update the FW on my Fuji cameras I go onto Fuji UK and simply download the FW update onto ...
  • I run Malwarebytes and Avast anti virus on my Macs. Malwarebytes has never found anything but Avast sometimes blocks a dodgy site.
  • Recently had a couple of issues on my iMac/MacBook Pro. Went online to a Mac forum and within 10 minutes was talking to a Spanish fellow from Mac headquarters and problem was resolved within a few ...
  • Just tried to install Aperture 3.0.3 trial into Sierra 10.12.6 and it failed. Got message that Aperture was incompatible with my version of Sierra! So thats that then. Luckily I don't need it and ...
  • I ran High Sierra Beta on my MacBook for a couple of days and found everything was clunky so went back to Sierra. One of my biggest gripes with Aperture was that there was no built in adjustment ...
  • I did not clone my machine. I simply installed and ran MacKeeper as the trial version. When it wanted payment to finish the job I refused! I ran CCleaner. That appeared to uninstall it but when I ...
  • Just installed Mackeeper for fun! Then used CCleaner to uninstall it. Worked a treat.
  • Recently bought a P9 mainly for its dng ability. Struggled to offload the images to my Mac until I tried iSkysoft iTransfer software. OK its not free, paid £30 on Ebay, but it works a treat. Also ...
  • Tried High Sierra Beta on my MacBook Pro, ran OK at first, then everything ran slow altho' all software seemed to work. Had a lot of trouble deleting it because of the new file system but sorted ...
  • Had mine now for 2 months - love it. Similar to XT1 but different. Don't be put off by negative feedback. If it doesn't work for you, you can get a refund within first 30 days. I was cautious at ...
  • I wanted reasonably high pixel count but shooting RAW or dng was more important at a reasonable PRICE. Went for Huawei P9 and am very happy with it.  Samsungs etc were all £200-300 more expensive. ...
  • Replied in Please help!
    See no reason it shouldn't be legit. I bought an X-70 for £499 a year ago and its been great. Wasn't keen on any of the 1" sensor cameras so went for the X-70. Had hoped that Canon would carry on ...
  • Huawei P9 will shoot in RAW mode.
  • I too will never upload 10,000 plus images into the Cloud, usually because you have to pay for it. I prefer to use several external el-cheapo external conventional HD’s!! Maybe when SSD’s become ...
  • Thank you folks for your comments, my panic is beginning to subside. Have spent a while taking test shots and I think my fears were unfounded.
  • Created discussion thread X-T20 not as sharp as X-T1
    Had my X-T20 now for a few days and am using the same 18-55/f2.8-4 lens I used before on my X-T1. However, daft as it may sound, the RAW images when using the same presets as on the X-T1 are ...
  • I always look at SLRGear.com to see how good or bad a lens is based on the lenses that have actually tested(as opposed to the ones they simply report on). Other sites may be more up to date or but ...
  • I always transfer all RAW images from the SD card to a named folder before importing into LR. However once in the folder I look at them using Lyn Image viewer which displays all of the images ...
  • Because if you run a computer controlled shortwave radio, the bulk of the necessary control software is Windows based. Personally I hate Windows!!
  • Hmmm. Wish someone would steal my X-T1 then maybe I too could get an X-T2 from my insurance!!
