  • Distant faces are the acid test for resolution, IMHO.  The brain is very sensitive to facial recognition, and if you're viewing a scene where there are a lot of distant but distinguishable faces ...
  • Best laid plans... There are certainly some pretty good seminar videos out there (TED videos, for example), but I think the difference is that the venue is designed to accommodate them.  When ...
  • Backing up "the entire computer" essentially means making a restorable copy of the system drive.   The system drive is unique because it has a special configuration that makes it possible for the ...
  • I believe that we should always strive to do our best.  You never know when your work will open up new opportunities for you.
  • The way to deal with PowerPoint or other audio-visual presentations is to get a copy of the presentation and during post production cut away to it while the speaker talks about it. Your audience ...
  • I think you'll find it difficult sourcing a monitor with discrete input buttons like that. You'll probably have better luck if you look for something like a separate HDMI switch box .  That way ...
  • Well then your norm is not the same as mine and his.   "4K" got applied to UHD screens, which are 2160p, by the marketing departments of consumer electronics companies.  When that happened, I ...
  • Just because he's explaining what the usage is doesn't mean he doesn't know what the reality is.
  • People who can't be bothered to dig below the "2K" label probably don't care enough to get upset by the differences. People who are knowledgeable enough to understand the differences won't be ...
  • Probably for the same reason that you can get different colour casts even if you shoot the same scene twice with the same camera - "automatic" white balance.   If you want to eliminate the ...
  • Yeah.... Good luck with that, especially in an industry where we can't even agree on what should be universal mathematical truths like how many bytes are in a megabyte...
  • Everybody has their own criteria for deciding which of the many criteria are most important to them.  I for one am extremely happy with the balance of capabilities, features and ergonomics of my ...
  • The last camcorder I bought was the Panasonic X900M.  I bought it because it was among the first camcorders capable of 1080p60. Since then, the cutting edge of video at a reasonable price has been ...
  • Replied in NoScript
    I've never had NoScript cause any "damage".  At worst its actions in blocking things like scripts and cross-site attacks just prevents web pages from displaying properly. Sorry, no.  But again, I ...
  • Replied in New Firefox
    I've never had any issues with the speed of Firefox, so the comments I often see about its speed are rather puzzling to me.  I regularly Ctrl-Click on several bookmarks at once and then flip ...
  • Replied in endurance?
    Where it makes sense is for hiberfil.sys, the hibernation file.  I'm on Windows 7 so I may be missing something different about how Windows 10 operates, but if I hibernate my desktop system it ...
  • Yep, variable frame rate is where your problem is.  You'll have to pre-focus and use depth of field to cover any distance variations by your subject when shooting in that mode.
  • Do you have the SSDs set up in a RAID configuration?   If not, then it makes no difference who makes them or how big they are.  If you do, it might, depending on the RAID implementation.
  • Replied in Ssd vs hdd
    Well, that's kind of the point. Because the SSD is so fast, it's only used for a short period of time... ;-) The SSD will be far faster for all disk accesses, and that's doubly important in a ...
