  • Created discussion thread RRS TVC-23 + BH-55 = Too Big???
    Hi, I just got a good deal on a RRS TVC-23 carbon fiber tripod and BH-55. One of those deals where you just buy it and not worry about particulars till later! I have not had a chance to trek with ...
  • Created discussion thread New 27" iMac RAM Upgrade Question?
    Hi, 27" iMac that came with 8g RAM and 2 empty slots. For what I do it's just about great but when crunching some larger photo files it can lag a hair. I believe it is recommended to have the same ...
  • "Lie" is a little strong...but... IME Adobe phone reps are woefully lacking in expertise. They use the first guy to answer acts like they know something but inevitably have to transfer you to a ...
  • Who knew it mattered so much!? C!
  • How old am I? Ya mean right now? YB
  • BTW! You guys are all flipping out about USB but it also has NO ETHERNET! No HDMI! and no SDXC card slot! I was referring to the MacBook Pro and this kinda suggests portable; something that would ...
  • A pencil sharpener?! LOL C!
  • haha! The consensus figure is <20% households in ~1990. That was my claim. Talk about embarrassing! You guys are slamming ice cream cones into your foreheads. In no way shape or form can you ...
  • 2000 G3's still had the option of SCSI. No one was flipping out at loss of scsi. There was a short period before speeds got up but the plug and play a revelation! Average Joe did not have to ...
  • Uhm, How does one sell 5M computers to 25M households?! Where are you getting these ridiculous stats? You're trying to claim 25% of the households in 1986 had specifically Sinclair  Spectrums?! Haha! ...
  • Yea but.... It's NOT 1998! I'd wager <20% of pre-1998 house holds had computers back then; hence NO peripherals! 2017 I'd bet >80% and NUMEROUS peripherals! Also SCSI et al were a nightmare as I ...
  • Funny! People are admitting Mac's have had USB since ~1995. That's 20 years! Countless peripherals are still driven by USB and the industry does not seem to be rushing away at the consumer level. S ...
  • Man Apple sure is optimistic that the economy is gonna keep growing! $1000 iPhones $5K+ iMacs..... Great news! Chiles
  • Thanks! I like the out of focus on this one. There's others that are more in focus but this one jst flt good for me. Thing is I need up and down as much as side to side. In fact with my set up the ...

  • Ha! Adorama for one sells on Amazon! Breakthrough sells specifically through Amazon. I don't think you understand how Amazon stores work. C
  • Yea! Aperture was very good at a time when there weren't as many PS options. Photos is Elements at best! I guess they just downsized Aperture to Photos instead of upgrading to be a great RAW ...
  • All from Amazon. 1st B+W from Bestsaver Photography. It came in an unsealed box! but has the same B+W markings as the second that came in a sealed box and case. Second one is loosening up a little ...
  • Can't reward with sales if you don't have one! Used to live near a Calumet Photo and was there weekly! Seemed every week or so I'd also do the rounds of the others too. I lived in San Diego, pretty ...
  • Created discussion thread What IS UP With CPL Quality??!!
    Hi, I miss having a brick and mortar photo store I could visit and chose my gear! This week I have been through 3 and counting CPL's that have been defective! Two B+W and a Breakthrough! All were ...
