  • Very good lens. Designed for macro and portrait. With internal floating group for correction at both distances.
  • 16 GB is sufficient for lightroom/Photoshop basic editing. I edit 16 bit 24 megapixel raw files with multiple layers and masks without problems. 32 GB will make your system slower and is only ...
  • The latest version has a 17.3-inch UHD IPS screen, a wide-gamut matte panel covering 100% of the AdobeRGB spectrum and good deep contrast. But there is also a cheaper version with a FHD IPS panel, ...
  • I use the Asus, but with a faster 1TB hard drive. I like it. Very fast, good ips screen, good sound, good construction. And you can always use a bigger monitor as external screen.
  • Replied in Bought a pair!
    Good choice. DJ and Studio monitors seems to be better than most computer speakers.
  • I use ADM-5 Reloop Active monitors. Much better dan computer speakers. With very good bass sound. But not wireless. In Europe 150€ for a pair.
  • Wondering why they send telemetry software for Office 2007 in updates for Office 2007 under Win7. And installing automated tasks to activate it. When that would only serve to improve their products.
  • getdpi. A good forum for photographers, free space for a gallery and extra space for a little money.

    It's not about taking consistently good pictures. But about having a consistent own vision on taking pictures. Adding something to the language of photography.
  • Shooting against the light and overexposure of the sky in the background. Don't expect good bokeh and a good transition to the background.
  • A 24 mb raw file became 72 mb in 8bit mode converted in uncompressed format and 144 mb in 16bit mode. The big file size has nothing to do with the program.
  • I switched to Linux Mint and run Win 7 in Vmware. Without internet access, virus and firewal protection, the performance index is 7,4.
  • Asus N751 series I7 processor 16GB 128 or 250 MB SSD + 1TB 7200rpm disk drive Dual Intel/NVidia processor 4GB video memory 17,3" IPS screen 1920x1080
  • There is no need for encrypted metadata or a non removable copyright attribute.

    A raw format is the best proof that you are the owner of the picture.

    And if I can see the image I can copy it. If...
