  • A lot of Linux utility programs (like sort and uniq) have been ported to Windows. Go to http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/ download UnxUpdates.zip, unzip into a directory, and then put it on the path ...
  • TRS-80  Model I was my introduction to third party accessories.   I quickly found out the third party 5.25" disk drives were cheaper and better than Radio Shack drives. I think the progression of ...
  • The first hard drive I used myself (for work) cost $5,000 for five megabytes.  The computer also cost $5,000 (TRS-80 Model II with four 8 inch floppy drives.)  5.0 megabytes ~= 0.0049 gigabytes.  ...
  • I have a Lenovo Yoga that has a 14" screen.  It is about 320 PPI.  An 8x10 just barely fits on the screen.  So I can edit an 8x10 at ~ 300 PPI.  If I am editing for a larger print I can set ...
  • So it still should be in warranty.   I bought one, took it on a trip and was disappointed with all the images I took with this lens.  I have what I consider to be good copies of the 15-45mm and ...
  • This.  This is something that conventional cameras don't do as well in the field as Pixels do.  This won't show up on controlled bench tests.  A camera with a high theoretical high dynamic range ...
  • You are displaying two digital images and declaring that one is more "plastic" than the other. There is no reason why the smartphone image could not have been processed to have the same look as the ...
  • Thanks for the head's up! And thanks to the libraw team: This package is made possible thanks to libraw open source project ( http://www.libraw.org ) . From the above-linked Microsoft page. Wayne
  • This is sad news.  I had extensive email correspondence with Phil when I was using one of his Photosolve Xtend-a-Slide slide/negative carriers for camera scanning.  He helped me by making several ...
  • Replied in Canon M50 Grip
    This is digital-milo's company, isn't it?  He was posting on DPReview when he was planning the design for these battery grips. Glad that he continued on and made a company out of the grips. Wayne
  • I thought it was the 300D.  My memory was that Canon introduced the 300D and EF-S 18-55 at the same time.  (The announcement of the EF-S mount was met with fury on DPReview.  Because the ...
  • I can't offer an opinion about your tests.  Have you tried it at other focal lengths?  15mm is approaching ultra-wide-angle and UWA introduces some distortions (as Plantdoc said in a different post.) ...
  • The 15-45 lens isn't intrinsically a dog.  But there are a lot of bad copies.  A good copy should be as good as any other (similarly specced!) kit lens. I was lucky in that my first 15-45mm lens is ...
  • The most recent Canon G series cameras that had an optical viewfinder were the G15 and the G16.  I just took a quick look on eBay and G15s seem to have a "buy-it-now" around $150 .  G16s cost more. ...
  • My first copy of my 15-45mm lens is good.  My 1st copy of my 18-150mm lens was bad.  Canon replaced it with a good copy. But I agree that the good/bad stats for the 15-45mm aren't sounding good.  I ...
  • Yes. I made a number of very sharp 8x10s with my six megapixel 300D and 1st generation (non-IS) 18-55mm lens. Wayne
  • Replied in 120 cdm2 (nt)
  • I'm more extreme than that: my rule is one body for each lens.  I (almost) never change lenses in the field.  I currently have an original M, an M6, and an M50 for when I'm going out with three ...
  • I have an M50.  I also have an EF 70-200mm f/4 IS, an EF-S 55-250mm, and an EF-M 55-200mm.  Yep the larger and heavier ones are better but I don't use them anymore.  For me, the EF-M 55-200 is ...
  • It is about having enough processing power to provide something that would be compelling enough to pay a subscription for.  It isn't my fault that phones have a lot more processing power than ...
