Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • Replied in 100% fake NT
    I did contemplate the perspective. I can think of a place where I might see OUR city from 25 miles away, but the moon does not cross the sky that far South. I have spent years taking pictures of ...
  • Replied in I apologise
    Looks like it is possible after all. I apologise. Henry
  • Do you get such clear air at a distance of 25miles? In New York? My city scape is something like a mile and a half away - and most days, contrast and saturation are nothing like that shown in the ...
  • Take a moon shot so it fills half the frame in the vertical. THEN, use the SAME setting to do a city scape from a first floor balcony across a river going through the city - what does your city ...
  • Getting the moon almost frame-filling I can do with a 600mm travel zoom and 4x digital zoom. But the buildings in this picture look like they were done at 100mm maximum without magnification. ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - At the Airport Again
    This gallery has 120 shots in it, after some vicious editing. The excuse is, I have no idea when I will stop off there again - http://www.pbase.com/hfalkner/122 The weather is still fine. On ...
  • I agree with all of this. I use a pocket travel 24x zoom camera with RAW. RAW lets me see what the camera sees. The JPEG processing on the Olympus SH-2 is more discreet than on its predecessors, ...
  • Thank you Simon. Truth is, we have had an intruder since September 2014. Chocolate never made friends with her, but she tolerated Lucky some of the time. Lucky is bigger than Chocolate was, so she ...
  • At the first attempt, installing Windows 8.1 froze the machine at 82% completion. Second time round, there was a delay at 82%, but The Windows 8.1 installation did complete. In years gone by I have ...
  • There are similar answers for the C75D-A on the Toshiba Forum. I can get to the boot screen by holding down the '0' key (numeral) while powering on. Thanks again. Henry
  • I have used the Media Creation Tool, and created DVDS 'for another PC' for both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I had a Windows 10 recovery USB stick, but the Toshiba C75D-A barfed at it, demanding a ...
  • I got the unit from PB Technology. They are the cheapest. I did point out at least twice that the refurbishment was not guaranteed in New Zealand - maybe that is what they are relying on. It si a ...
  • The factory default is Windows 8. MS started an upgrade path to Windows 8.1. This stopped at 82%, and the machine froze. I disconnected the mains and the battery. The laptop started with the ...
  • Nice story. The cat that Sandra brought with her stopped eating when he began to loose his fights. Other than that, the vet could find nothing wrong with him. One night I heard him cry at the back ...
  • Replied in New Camera
    Since you have worked with DSLRs all your life, my travel zooms would be too much of a come-down for you. Unfortunately, Canon mirror-less has no built in EVF. If I were in the market for an ...
  • Thank you! This one did, like they always do. Thanks for coming back to this one. Henry
  • Thank you Lucy. The hardest thing was, when I pulled into the SPCA, she woke up and started crying. It was like she knew where she was, and it seemed to bring up old memories in her. But Lucky is ...
  • Factory Recovery stopped twice at 85% and 86%, so I bit the bullet, took the existing C:/drive out, and put in a clean Western Digital 1TB drive that had never been used as a C:/ drive in ANY machine.
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Aircraft Landing
    The SPCA is not far from Auckland Airport. Having left our terminally ill cat at the SPCA, I went to the Purinui Road Lookout, and there are no parking fees there. Today, the aircraft landed and ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Last Photos When Alive
    Three days ago our cat Chocolate came in twice for a feed, then rested on 'her' chair, so we thought she was coming right after a leg injury - She had never made friends with any other cats, or ...
