  • Ha! That's a good one! Wonder what the Las Vegas oddsmakers are putting on that.
  • I've decided that PoE isn't necessary at this time. So, I'm looking at the 48-port TP-Link T1600G-52TS JetStream smart gigabit switch, which is $288 USD from B&H. For my purposes in the house, I ...
  • Most certainly you are not ignorant. Not even possibly! Routers and switches are completely different types of equipment. Of the four ports on the back of my router (which actually makes the device ...
  • I'm right up there with you on the age thing. Might even be a year older than you. I spent two weeks in Townsend in June, doing a lot of sunrise pano photography from Foothills Parkway (second ...
  • Currently, I have no equipment of any kind that runs on PoE. Just trying to do a little bit of future-proofing. Who knows, there could be VoIP phones in my future instead of my traditional ...
  • Created discussion thread Network switch recommendation
    Looking to replace my ancient 10/100 24-port unmanaged switch with a 48-port gigabit switch that offers PoE on at least some of the ports (need not be all). Also doesn't need to be super managed; ...
  • It's not good practice to take a jpg and "save it back to jpeg." Every time you save any type of file to JPG, you are compressing the file and throwing data away. That's because JPG, by definition, ...
  • The "big," of course, is the price.

  • Version 1.0 of anything is often immature, incomplete, and far from perfect, whether it's a camera or a spreadsheet. It's usually the third iteration that finally gets it completely right. That...

  • I'd also sleep better with dual card slots. Perhaps we'll see multiple cards in a future EOS R camera several years down the road — if Canon can make room in the chassis. Heck, Microsoft never got ...
  • Replied in Impressive
    I go through periods when I print a lot with my PRO-4000, and go through other times when I'm lucky to do only a nozzle check print in a week's time. So far, it has been perfect. If only it could ...
  • Replied in I just checked
    I just checked the date of your post to see if it was on April Fool's Day. It wasn't. Canon is a raging lion? You would be excellent doing stand-up comedy! Kudos to you.
  • Indeed. I've tried these kits and have done as you recommend. For 99 percent of my canvas, I use 1.5-inch stock from Stretcher Bar Warehouse. So far, I've not had any problems. The bigger challenge ...
  • Those kits are fine for frivolous work. For serious, archival work, however, allowing adhesive to come in contact with the canvas is just plain dumb.
  • Replied in How much?
    Yes, Canon is no-good dreck. The company is finished. Toast. Kaput. On a side note, how much are you willing to sell your 5D4 body for? I could use a backup to mine. Thanks.
  • Adobe's profits continue to skyrocket (see chart). You're absolutely right: the company does not care about you — or any other...

  • About the only thing that's not "Made in China" these days is — Chinese food.

  • Replied in Photo Frames
    The problem with most retail-store frames (BB&B, AC Moore, etc.) is that the rabbets are not nearly deep enough to accommodate glazing, a thick mat (8-ply or double 4-ply), your print, and a foam ...
  • Try speaking with Epson tech support. I don't know how that works in the UK, but here in the U.S., I have pleaded my case — politely but passionately — a couple of times over the years. ...
  • That's not how it works.
