  • A different option is to virtulise the OS and run in VirtualBox (or Paralles/VMWare). Then you are not tied to a specific version of hardware that may fail in the future. The virtual machines can ...
  • I find that using the cloudy white balance gives pleasing sunset images. I typically use P mode but this will also work in all the PASM modes. Depending on the actual composition a touch of ...
  • I recognise that the faster cards may not give any faster operation in the camera. But there is a benefit when transfering the images off the card, especially if you are using a fast USB3 card ...
  • The memory card would actually be my first option for recovery. The in camera format normally just wipes the directory table not the file data. SanDisk have a recovery app that comes free with the ...
  • If you do not see the title bar and 'blobs' for closing the window then is suggests that is it dispalying in full screen mode. If you move your mouse pointer up, right to the top of the screen the ...
  • For timelapse I like to lock the exposure as it avoids small shifts in exposure that can result in flickering during playback. Also for sunsets it should be getting darker as the sun goes down so ...

  • I wondered about not having a viewfinder, but I am not finding it much of an issue. Yes, in bright light the rear screen can be more difficult to see, but with the tilting of the screen this can ...
  • If you are using Photoshop then you can use "Save for Web" (Shift + Ctrl + Alt + S) and then choose None for Metadata. Also, record save for web in a action and apply to all images you want to ...
  • Replied in V1 or V2 ?
    What about a J5 with an add-on viewfinder over the LCD? A bit more bulk but you get to use the best N1 sensor with a viewfinder.
  • Have you tried hearing aids? I put off too long getting them, but what a difference they are making. Really enjoying hearing the birds again and being able to 'find' one I cannot see.
