  • I saw on your last post that you opted for the third party lens, but personally I highly recommend the 50 1.8g.   My camera/lenses are very similar to what you shoot.  I have a D810, 16-35vr, 105 ...
  • Sorry.  It was the 8920 model on the Dell Outlet.  With a 256 solid state and a 2tb regular hard drive.
  • Sorry Steve. It was the 8920 model. But I saw in your other post you ordered one. And then of course the 17% off coupon. I've been watching the XPS desktops over the last year, and have never saw ...
  • I was very close to ordering an XPS 15 with the FHD screen (which I like better than the glossy 4k) from Newegg.  They had a very good buy on them at $1325 inc tax.   But that was still $500 more ...
  • I posted above that I thought I would replace my old Dell XPS with a laptop, but after looking at the high prices of laptops, I changed my mind.  So I ended up ordering a new XPS desktop from Dell ...
  • lol.  Yeah, I guess I have that now in my man's cave workstation.  But I have a feeling whether I'm working from a laptop or a desktop, she would still rather I stay down there.  So maybe I should ...
  • Thank you for all the responses. . . all good information to help me decide what to do.  My main concern was whether 256gb is large enough for the operating system, Lightroom, etc., but maybe ...
  • You're right about the inconvenience of dragging an external hard drive around as well as the risk of losing it, something I hadn't really thought about. That makes me think I'm better off with a ...
  • Steve, I'm in a similar situation in needing to replace my desktop. For me I've decided I will be happier with a laptop, and then plugging it into my Dell U2413 monitor when working at home unless ...
  • Created discussion thread Hard drive size on new laptop
    I'm in the process of replacing my Dell XPS desktop and have decided to go the laptop route.  At home, I'll use it with my Dell U2413 monitor.  Dell has a great Black Friday deal right now on the ...
  • I guess you get what you pay for when it comes to tripods. I also have a 9 year old Gitzo GT2531, and the only scuffs or scratches on the legs are where I dropped the tripod on some rocks.
  • Thanks....i may try that.  My Feisol has nice foam pads on the top section.  The only section that still looks like new.
  • Created discussion thread Feisol tripod easily scratches
    I got a Feisol ct3401 for Christmas last year, and immediately upon using it, scratches started appearing on the legs, starting with the lowest section and then gradually more showing up on the ...
  • I would probably look towards Feisol or Induro,  Both make larger tripods without center columns at good prices.
  • This is all making me lean towards just staying with a Windows based machine like the XPS for my photo editing, and then I'll know for sure I won't have any issues with using my external drives.  ...
  • Thanks so much for all the responses. This helps a lot.   It sounds like I will be able to use my current drives with a Mac.  If I do get the MacBook Pro, I plan on getting a good solid state ...
  • I have a Dell desktop computer now with a couple Seagate external drives I use for backing up my files. I'm thinking about replacing the desktop with a Macbook. I was in a Bestbuy store yesterday ...
  • I think if you shoot from a tripod a lot (like I do) the Tamron is the better option.  While I'm OK using my Nikon 70-200 f4 without the tripod mount, I think it would be much harder to precisely ...
  • I don't use Collections in Lightroom, just folders.  Basically I just put them in the normal by year/day folders as they are inputted.  However, I then have a separate folder with subfolders for ...
  • I keep watching the deals on this website. https://www.techbargains.com/ Anytime there are specials on Dell products, from the Dell outlet or their regular store, they will show up here. I'm really ...
