cgarrard: Why would you default process all of your files? :)

But mainly, all of those are short and to the point, rather efficient resources for all levels of LR experience..

One might want it for a particular session/series, or use a limited default as a starting point, I suppose.

As a long time LR user I found some of the video tips enlightening/enabling. Thumbs up.

And I even enjoyed being "gotcha'd" with the Ansel Adams video. [g]

OlyPent: Speaking as an amateur astronomer who dislikes "light pollution" if we are on such an energy-saving kick, WHY do cities continue to allow incredibly wasteful uses of light in blazing signage, uncontrolled street-lighting and even car headlights that verge on blinding these days? Check out the heart of Toronto:

Some properties don't comply, some have cogeneration or have gone LED. Energy reduction mandates are about energy use and utility expenses. No one responsible for that cares about light pollution.

Just like no one responsible for street signage cares how ugly their arrangements are, nor how their signage clutters the view of architecture.

Cities do it in part for safety, in part to exhibit the architecture.

There was a push to conserve energy for building lighting before commercial LED lighting became affordable.

On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1898 comments in total)

Thankfully it's much more than I require. But it's everything I could ask for.

But then again. . . it had better be all Sony says it be.

The Canon 1D, IMO, was significant in the transition of DSLRs to digital. The next significant evolution from there has just occurred.

Bob Tullis: In a future interview can you ask about what they're doing to alleviate the frustration that many of us customers have with Playmemories apps?

I felt I was insane to try yet again, but. . . EUREKA! Finally, success!

(IOW, never mind [g]).

I initially didn't care for in-camera apps, but one or two in time I found appealing. I've tried many ways, many times, but can't get the apps to install. I'm not the only one.

Artak Hambarian: Honestly, last week, under the rain, I have been thinking why there is no such an umbrella that can be attached to the camera backback, freeing my hands - anyway I carry the backback...? So I am not the only one with great innovative ideas ;-).

Here you go, Swing-Handsfree Umbrella:

On article Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.10 and ACR 9.10 now available (65 comments in total)

It looks like I"m all up to date, but whenever I load a RAW from LR to PS I get a message saying "This version of LR may require the PS Camera RAW plug-in version 9.10 for full compatibility. Please update the Camera RAW plug-in using the update tool available in the PS help menu."
Dialog Options: -Don't Show Again, - Cancel, - Render using LR, - Open Anyway

Open Anyway works well enough, I suppose it's just coding / recognition error.

JonBush: Although I like the idea of adding apps to my A7II, in actual practice, the Play Memories experience (https://www.playmemoriescameraapps.com/portal/) when adding an app to the camera is a nightmare. I have added a few apps by connecting my camera to my iMac, but each time it is extremely painful. I'm not sure, but I think it might play better on a PC than a Mac, though maybe someone else can confirm this. If you get caught in the "PMCADownloader" death spiral, just walk away or you will soon find yourself throwing things. Please Sony, fix this and make it straightforward and consistent across platforms, i.e. browsers, Mac and Windows, etc. and provide clear directions that you have tested thoroughly.

I broke a keyboard trying to get Playmemories apps. It's been ages since I pounded on one like that.

princecody: I never understood why people wanna pay more for a more complicated photography experience other than back to basics nostalgia 🤔

Maybe you're just not old enough to have your own sense of nostalgia? Many things I didn't, or thought I did, understand at 20 have a whole other level of appreciation/understanding at 40, and then again at 60.

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (892 comments in total)

Whether a camera has an EVF or OVF is not one of the tipping points in my determinations.

I enjoy shooting RAW with a mono profile, to assess a composition w/o the distraction of color. That is, I find EVF's perfectly suitable, with the exception of v. low light base ISO studies (where the color noise the current Sony FF produces makes m.focusing more challenging than it need be). I cut my teeth on OVFs (1D through to the 5D2), and have no reservations about using one if the camera I desired featured it. For what I do, either would suffice. But if forced to choose one over the other, I find the EVF more useful in general.

El Chubasco: A re-do of my billingham hadley pro

I might think so if the sides of the cover didn't tend to direct water or debris into the sides of the compartment. To be honest, I didn't get past detail that to look closer at the bag's features.

In reply to:

GodSpeaks: I find it funny that the only reason Apple made the larger phones and tablets, was because Samsung was kicking their butts.

Then thank you Samsung. I loved the pocket-abliity of the iPhone, but only when I got a Plus model did I use an iPhone for things other than making telephone calls.
