  • It does happen in certain cases. I had the 18-135 on X-T20 misfocused when using back-button with Instant AF set to continuous, the focus system seems to keep moving the motor after reaching the ...
  • There's a 3.5" bay at the front bottom that can house 3 SATA drives. You can also mount a 2.5" drive on the back side of the mainboard. However, SATA interface is slower than NVMe, the TUF X570 ...
  • Replied in Kamvas 13
    ah, nice to know but I'm not into paying extra premium for Apple's ecosystem. I've just built a gaming desktop with my daughter. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/XZpzjp The Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT has ...
  • It is, indeed, not the best time to gather parts. I've just done building a gaming desktop with my daughter, had to hunt around and find equivalences, got most of the parts from Newegg. https://pcp ...
  • AMD CPUs with the letter G at the end are APU (with graphic), e.g. 3400G or 2400G.
  • Replied in Kamvas 13
    My daughter has been using Wacom Intuos 4 for a few years. She has asked for a Cintiq but the price was too high. Huion recently released the Kamvas 13 that is better than their previous Pro 13 ...
  • AFAIK, darktable is the closest to LR. It has a DAM with SQLite DB (just like LR) for quick indexing and querying of the whole collection (I've tested with 25,000+ RAWs). It reads EXIF data into ...
  • Replied in blooming yard
    f/1.2 is tricky, trading off sharpness for creamy bokeh ... but sadly it's what I love about this lens :-(
  • How old is your laptop? My best guess is that the panel is edge-lit (with LED around the edges shining in), perhaps the screen delaminated/lifted around the edges that moisture might have sipped ...
  • Just FYI, various 5700 XT cards are currently on sale: Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock. I went with the Sapphire Ntro+ for my recent build, it's truly a quiet beast (using the silent BIOS). There are a few ...
  • it has some correction, although not good enough. Too bad I don't have access to this lens, somebody will have to take calibration shots and submit for a better profile. https://wilson.bronger.org/ ...
  • Tried out the Kamvas 13, the display is great, very responsive, no lag, almost no parallax between the pen and the display, pen pressure and tilt work flawlessly, the driver for Windows is pretty ...
  • Not sure if it's the same or they just tried out a new design for the concept, but the current design of the front grille looks quite good. Their current generation is very clever with smooth ...
  • the gran turismo version of Mazda: https://www.gran-turismo.com/us/news/00_5262138.html or the original concept of the current Mazda 3: https://apparatusmag.com/2017/10/26/mazda-unveils-two-stunnin ...
  • 18mm can also be quite wide 😁
  • Yes, that is an easier way, and would work with almost any photography tools. The main difference would be between a one-time edit/recompile of the specific tool vs on-going modification of EXIF ...
  • It's the ProForm 905 CST,  on sale for $699 at Costco at the end of 2018. Also, the coming new Lenovo with Ryzen seem to have very attractive prices. While I have no need to upgrade mine (Dell 7567 ...
  • I kinda cheated, though, it was a lightning storm with almost continuous flashings across the sky 😁
  • It's pretty decent, sturdy, reliable, and easy to maintain. I skipped the whole registration process and don't use the fancy programs, just manually adjust the speed and slope according to my ...
  • I had a similar occasion last year, ended up with hundreds of shots from just around 15 minutes thanks to CH mode 😁 Since a lightning is very short (around 20-30ms), I leaned on a car nearby and ...
