  • I really started using dpr when I got my first dslr back in 2008. I continue to use it and now more than ever. I think the interface is well suited and membership is abundant. A lot of activity. ...
  • PSE is all I need. I have the PSE 2019 combo which includes Photoshop Premiere Elements. You can always add plug ins as well.
  • In my case I remain loyal to laptops now more than ever. There are reasons for me. For one I have limited data on my phone plan with hotspot so I can take my laptop where there is a wireless ...
  • Last BF I bought off Adorama and by the looks of it they continue this Black Friday to have great deals. Note that it has started 1 or 2 weeks going on now.
  • LG put out a new model this year. The Gram 17 was last years. The new one has a discrete GPU and aluminum bottom casing. Its a step up at just 1 lb in weight. I am also one of those that made the ...
  • This happen to me with the Mac OS so its not a Windows only issue. Somewhere or somehow the drive is still in progress of doing something. I ended up shutting down the computer and then started ...
  • Created discussion thread Ditching the MBP. Any XPS users...
    I was looking at the Dell XPS line and it looks like an alternative to the MacBook Pros. Any users here? Experiences?
  • I bought a mid- 2010 MBP 15 a year in half ago and it has proven to be great but the one I was talking about is a mid-2014 MBP 15. Anyways I got my money back. I will continue to use my old but ...
  • Created discussion thread Nightmare MBP 15inch mid-2014...
    I think I lost trust on the MacBook Pro 15. I wanted to upgrade to 3.0 usb and more ram from an old mid-2010 but this move has been a bad move. Now I am trying to contact the person I bought it ...
  • I used the PS Elements version and it crashed often. Very frustrating. I didn't know if it was the PS or the dxo plug in I was using. I had to use the photo lab program but it doesn't have the ...
  • I store mines in a camera dry cabinet. Hopefully it will last until Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez prediction of the coming ice age meltdown.
  • It goes both ways. The seller or the buyer can be the scammer. Always check the feedback and also the verified address.
  • I do it often. I am lucky to be less than an hour away from theme parks and attractions. There is always something happening. Its also helpful when trying out new equipment or experimenting.
  • Back in the day I bought a lot at Best Buy stores for the reason that my brother worked there for about 12 years. Used to get great discounts especially on the Dynex brand which was their store ...

  • I use a microfiber cloth and 91% Isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I normally start by using the rocket blower.
  • I looked into it ages ago. I stayed with 12bit. It is just not worth it. 14bit all it does is increase file size for no usable gain in my experience.
  • If its inside the elements then it is certainly fungus but you have to look into the history of the lens. Did you buy it new? How you stored the lens? What area of the country you live in? I have ...
  • I couldn't say it better myself. It all comes down to capturing a moment in time and preserving it forever. No matter how many bells and whistles a camera has. Its the fundamental existence of ...
  • I use a 12 mpx camera for my portraits and I like the 8 x 10 shots which is all I ever need. They fit perfectly in a binder and pleasing to see. Anymore would just be for cropping purposes.
