  • Thanks for your comment Bob. The catalog and the preview files will be stored on a Samsung 980 Pro 1TB MVMe 4.0. The photo files will be on the Samsung 860 EVO 2TB that I am using presently. I ...
  • Woops... that's a good question.   My PSU is a Corsair TX650M purchased in 2012.  Leads may be a problem and it may not have the type of connectors needed.  Food for thaught !!!!
  • Wow !  I find your story very comforting.  You give me confidence that this new PC will probably solve the sluggish, sometimes crawling to a stop, of LR due to my large catalog.  Thanks for taking ...
  • I have one and I find it useful for fast flying birds at short distance like Swallows and this Black Tern.  I find it useless when birds are at longer distances.  As mentioned in another post, it ...
  • Thanks KayL.  The price is right on this one and it is available.  I want this PC to last for a while and the flexibility might be useful.  Also, I may want to replace the 860 EVO when prices drop.
  • Thanks for your comments.  I only listed the important components:  I also have a 2TB HDD for misc. data and a 650W PSU that I will transfer from my actual PC.  I use an external 10TB HD for local ...
  • Created discussion thread How about this PC build for LR/PS
    My actual PC is more than 5 years old. I upgraded it with 2 SSDs but it is struggling with my 50,000 photos LR catalog... Time to build a new one ! What do you think of this build ? (1) Ryzen 7 3700X
  • Superb ! Congrads.
  • Replied in RX10 V ?
    Thanks Nigel.  It makes sense.  I thought I would ask since I don't follow Sony camera news.
  • Created discussion thread RX10 V ?
    I recommended the RX 10 IV to a friend who needs a lightweight high quality birding camera.  Since this model dates back to 2017, I was wondering if a Mk V replacement is expected soon and what ...
  • Intéressant article.  Merci.
  • Hi Trevor, If you want to use a TC with your 60mm lens, you will have to use an extension tube to make it fit.  You will also have to modify the extension tube wo make its inside diameter a little ...
  • Thanks, I will look into this.
  • My camera is an Oly E-M1 Mk III 20mp.   My computer is a 7 years old 16GB i7-3770k and I am due for a refresh.  Some components are still good, case, PS, monitors.  I decided I will get the 1660 ...
  • The PCIe 4.0 Samsung 980 is much faster than the 970.  I have a very large LR Catalog of 70 000 photos that I don't want to split and it make a big difference.  I decided I will get the 1660 Ti.
  • Thanks for the info.  Yes, i meant 1660 Ti... I found out last evening that Topaz uses the GPU a lot.  I made tests with my low end GTX 750 Ti and Topaz Denoise improves by 31% !!!  Since I use ...
  • Created discussion thread Graphics card for a PS/LR system
    I'm building a new PC for photo work - Photoshop, Lightroom and Topaz. Besides photo, the PC will be used a normal home computer. NO GAMING AT ALL ! Ryzen 5 3600X, 32GB RAM, 1TB Samsung 980 Pro SSD ...
  • Hi Trevor, I have the PL 100-400mm that I hate and the Oly 300mm with both TCs that I love. In my dreams, I was imagining reasons that would prompt me to buy the 150-400mm. A Canadian price of ...
  • I used the PL 100-400mm a lot before getting the Oly 300mm and hand-holding was not a problem.  The Oly 100-400mm is a bit heavier but that should be ok.  The single IS was not a problem; of ...
  • Nice photos using the 100-400mm Paul.  Congrads ! I have the PL 100-400mm and I really don't like;  I seldom use it but I miss the zoom.  The Oly 100-400mm could be a nice addition to my 300mm.    ...
