Sylvain C.'s recent activity

  • Is it possible to see the focus point that was used when playing back pictures on the camera? (like in the picture below) For example, if you are taking a picture of yourself with a tripod and want ...
  • Thanks Jim and BBQue. I was hoping that I had missed a feature but I guess I did not, it just cannot be done... :-(  (except with gaffer tape of course)
  • Maybe. If you use A-mode to control aperture let's say, the camera will control the shutter to maintain exposure.  I want the shutter speed to stay the same regardless of the aperture I select. ...
  • Created discussion thread A7R2: Locking one of the dials?
    In some photo sessions, I may want to play with aperture and leave the shutter at a specific setting (flash sync speed let's say). With Nikon, I could just lock one of the dials/wheels (shutter or ...
  • I've had this NAS for a few years now Pete, I'll have to check what protocol it is using. I should perform the check you suggest but I believe the Buffalos are not known to be very fast...
  • Replied in NAS speed
    Yes, this is what I do Chris but I have to go back to older files on the NAS sometimes or access files (on the NAS) from another computer.  Anyway, if you know of a better NAS setup than the one I ...
  • Replied in NAS speed
    You're right about backups Chris. I don't care much about the throughput for that. I care about managing and editing my RAW pictures though and this where it hurts. I just thought the backup ...
  • Thanks for the suggestion tkbslc but it's not my external drive. My NAS is giving me the same throughput when I copy files to my computer's HDD.   This backup process is just a good illustration of ...
  • This is what I would like to improve: Backing up from my NAS (DisqueCentral) is way too slow because of the poor read speed of the Buffalo.  The NAS is connected to the router on a 1GB link and the ...
  • That seems to work for mine too (actually half-depress will do the trick). When I go back to view a picture though, it will often freeze again. :-( The camera has never completely frozen on me, I ...
  • Replied in NAS online
    Because I have a NAS sitting there that could do the job. I can't really use dropbox for thousands of raw pictures...
  • I installed one of the many "wifi analyzer" apps that one can find on Android. Looks like I have good reception and good throughput.  I may not need a new router after all!  Thanks Billiam29.
  • Thanks again tkbslc . I actually bought the Archer C1900 when it came on sale but "the authorities" did not like it because it was white.  Back it went. I think that ½ speed on wireless would still ...
  • In my case, it is not from the road, I might be around the house using my Surface.  I want access to all my photos (just under 40,000 RAW files). I guess I believe (hope) that one tool can do it all...
  • Replied in NAS online
    Right but you can't access your files from the other computers when your main desktop is off (for example).
  • Accessing the backup version of the NAS?  You mean the one on the USB drive that I leave in the office? Or the backup folder on the NAS that I keep separate from the "on line" files?  Regardless, ...
  • Replied in NAS online
    I would hope that the probability to have my main computer HDD and NAS HDD go down at the same is very low. Isn't the NAS' RAID 1 setup giving me a reasonable level of risk though?
  • Thanks tkbslc .  Very interesting. It seems that you are doing exactly what I would like to achieve. Although your experience tells me that I may need to upgrade my router if I want good speed over ...
  • Thanks SushiEater . RAID 0 gives you good performance but no backup between the two disk drives though. I'd like to get both speed and RAID 1 on one device.  (ideally)
  • Replied in NAS online
    Why is that Chris?  We're only talking about a home setup here, nothing fancy.
