  • Another fan of refurbs. 70D, a bunch of lenses, including 100-400 MkI. All as good as new. My 70D had only a few actuations, maybe 100.  Satisfied with them.
  • Well, then, all is well on spare machine. Don't do much with this one, just email and web.  I just updated main laptop and eventually will do desktop after first update.
  • How do you know if your disk is converted to HPFS? I have a 2011 MBP with a third party SSD and I can't tell much of a difference.
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom mobile sync question
    I have been syncing LR using the collections my desktop computer. I just got a new laptop. What would happen to my collections on my desktop if I stopped syncing that computer and started syncing ...
  • If you factor in a residual value of your machine after 3-5 years, the cost goes down. I was surprised to see that my 2011 MBP is still fetching $300-500 on eBay with upgraded SSD. So now that ...
  • I got it!! 2017 13" MBP 3.3 with 16/512 and it is a dream. What an improvement -- in some ways zippier than my iMac (must have some rogue programs holding things up). I've done some minor photo ...
  • Replied in Back up system
    Super Duper is a great piece of software and is great for cloning a hard drive. I used it years ago as a backup strategy, but it wasn't as reliable then. Maybe it's better now. I now use Time ...
  • Created discussion thread Backup question
    Currently running an iMac with 2TB drive, which uses Time Machine to a 4TB external drive. All my photo images are on a G-Raid Studio 6TB (2x3) Thunderbolt 2 drive, RAID 1 for redundancy. I have ...
  • Decided 13", 2017 refurb and keep iMac for the desktop.  There are 2017 13" on the refurb list now  I haven't bought new in forever   You save more on a refurb than with education pricing Choices, ...
  • I like your perspective. So it brings up the other concern, which is that the closeouts on the 15" 2016 MBP's are outstanding. While marginally larger, it is significantly lighter than my current ...
  • Created discussion thread New MBP Question
    Perhaps asked and answered before, but I can't find the right thread. Time for new MBP 13. The 2016 refurbs are a few hundred dollars less than the new 2017's. I do LR, PS, Premiere Elements, ...
  • I successfully ran a 2011 mini with 2 drives for a couple of years.  The startup drive was a 100 GB SSD and the second drive held all the files.  I think it was OS X 10.11 though.  Using the SSD ...
  • I second the 55-250 as a starter lens and well below your budget as a refurb from the canon store. That's the lens I use when I'm in a kayak (since if I lose it it's not the end of the world). I ...
  • Bummer.   I bought the USB 3 camera connection kit and external readers need additional power. Shoulda' gotten the card reader, but then I wouldn't be able to read CF cards
  • Why bother with Fusion? just use the SSD as boot drive, with applications and home folder and use the other drive for files. I think that with an adapter you can mount both in a 2012. I had a 2011 ...
  • I got the lightning to USB 3 camera connector.  Both of my card readers need an extra power source.  Is that true of all card readers or is there an SD card readers that doesn't require external ...
  • This is a nice thread, nice write-up. Can you import from the memory card directly to Lightroom, thus bypassing Photos? Do you need to use Photos as an intermediary? Thanks
  • Created discussion thread Trying to downsize - Lightroom question
    I have to believe this has been discussed before, and I can't find the appropriate threads. Feel free to direct me there if it has been answered before. I currently have my Lightroom library on an ...
  • So I was real disappointed at first with the performance of my new iMac 5K with 8GB and 2TB drive. I thought I would benefit from the larger solid state portion of the 2TB fusion drive. I found, ...
  • I noticed a real paucity of memory with all 8 GB used.  So I ordered a 16 GB set and will add to the 8 I have.  Hope it works.  Thanks for the help.
