Sean Nelson's recent activity

  • I haven't had this issue with my GoPros. I would at the very least remove and insert the SD card a few times in order to wipe the contacts - it could be due to a marginal connection. Maybe even ...
  • I'm pretty confident for the kind of use I'm likely to put it to, "water resistant" is more than enough.  I suspect that I'm probably less water resistant than the camera is...  ;-)
  • I have a Panasonic GH5 which is water resistant - I've been thinking of getting one of the water resistant zooms for it, that's probably the most optimal route for me.   I use the RX100 as my ...
  • Interesting - for some reason the idea of using an underwater housing to shoot in the rain never even crossed my mind.   It kind of seems like overkill to me, but then I'm not really fond of those ...
  • Interesting, thanks.   Most of the general street scenes seem to be a bit underexposed, I think you'd really need a wider dynamic range to capture it the way I'd like to see it visualized. I'm ...
  • This is exactly why the best advice to the OP is to grab a camera, any camera, and use it to create some sort of project.   It doesn't have to be fancy or have great production values, it just has ...
  • What I said was that Windows has a tendency to screw around with its "own" folders, and that the default folders are among them.  Sometimes the "screwing around" is just renaming those folders ...
  • I recently ordered something that was delivered by FedEx from the US to Canada.  On the tracking web site they had a "Manage your Delivery" option where I discovered I could route it to a nearby ...
  • It's issues like this which confirm my practice of never storing any of my own data files in Windows "Known Folders". Sometimes my apps do and I don't have a choice for some of their auxiliary ...
  • I think you've forgotten to process this colour negative properly - the moon should appear bright on a dark sky...   ;-)
  • Hasn't been a problem for me since I upgraded to Office 2007.    That's because I'm still running Office 2007...  :-D
  • Doesn't seem too long - the total number of characters has to be no more than 260. You occasionally run into problems with some programs if the file or path name contains delimiting characters such ...
  • I was considering the 80MP "pixel shift" mode.
  • Well, in both cases you need to spend extra money over and above the camera.   In one case you're spending it on lenses, and in the other you're spending it on storage.   If you make that choice, ...
  • It's not just the length of the folder name that matters, it's the length of the entire path right back up to the root of the drive.   If you have a folder named "TV" you can still run into ...
  • That's a good point.  I guess the acid test would be to view the material on a big screen TV with the motion smoothing turned off - but if he would normally view it with the smoothing turned on it ...
  • These kinds of storage requirements come with the territory for cameras with such high resolution. You can't store an 80MP image in the same space as a 20MP one. If you want the resolution, you ...
  • The 180 degree rule is recommended to avoid the "stuttery" or "staccato" look you get when fast motion is recorded at 24fps.   In the case of drone work, it'll likely happen if you try to pan too ...
  • HA!  That's peanuts!   Just be thankful you're not shooting 4K video...
  • I'm not familiar with iMovie, but with most movie editors the output resolution defaults to the same as the input resolution.   I would think that you need to find how to change the settings that ...
