Mr Bolton: My spouse's company got hit with ransomware. All the files just come up as **company_name**.wasted and people have lost sometimes 15 years worth of emails and documents and work for the company.

Basically, it was down to management being too cheap to implement something along the lines of Clearswift's Mimesweeper which filters and blocks these attacks.

Cleaning up the current disaster is gonna cost them a lot more than it would have to use the appropriate security protections to begin with.

Backing up emails and data is also a good idea.

Credit for trying to do something about faked images and stolen content. The dialog has begun.

ISO 409,000 is, I believe, one Photon arriving every 5 minutes.

Horshack: Everyone was worried Canon would implement a spatial crop to achieve 4K/8K video on the R6/R5 - turns out they used a temporal crop instead.

Will be interesting to see how R5 does at 8K.

On my desktop I see both versions of Photoshop.
On my laptop I only see the cloud version of Photoshop.
This is a change I believe. I usually use the non-cloud version on both machines.

Short form translation: Sony made an offer we couldn't refuse.

Still, quite a coup for Sony and their cameras are very good.

f11: on a sunny day to get 1/1600 sec shutter speed for birds/wildlife the starting ISO will be 1600. In the shade or during crepuscular shooting take away another 3 stops of light: ISO = 128,000
The lenses will likely be very sharp and the price is right.

Digital way yes, love it.
Film no thanks.
Let’s allow the market to decide: its digital by a mile.

These guys give really fair and unbiased reviews.

1.5 million photos in LR. Works well. Not a fan of the subscription, but getting Photoshop included is a huge plus.

What is now obvious: we should never buy cameras, just rent them from Lensrentals and let them keep them in tip top shape.

Blazing speed? Nope. The sliders do not adjust the image in real time. I move the slider, a few seconds later the image updates. This is slow and too slow for me to edit images. I find this review to be misleading.

On article DPReview TV: Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art review (45 comments in total)

Not a video lover but I watch every one these guys make. Others have reported centering problems with the Sigma. In addition to everything mentioned, quality control and availability of good, fast repairs are also considerations in buying lenses.

Looks like another terrific Fuji camera. If I were starting over... maybe. I’m heavily invested in other manufacturers so will be watching from the sidelines.

How do you save money by getting rid of stores selling your cameras?

Does this make PS Round Corners equal to PS Square Corners?
