  • That's good and thanks for the feedback.  I've rarely seen Anti Twin promoted and can't recall how I stumbled across it.
  • I love(d) Picasa. My image file structure is to have separate folders for events or family and then name each photo appropriately. I then use the face recognition. Picasa enabled me to quickly ...
  • I've used Anti-Twin in the past http://www.joerg-rosenthal.com/en/antitwin/ and I'm hoping it will do the job when I merge a mixture of files and images from two computers onto a new one. A handy ...
  • Has any individual ever in any country been "caught" by any software manufacturer for having a valid but maybe questionable source (eg OEM sold on) licence? Certainly those doing the selling have ...
  • Replied in Really?!?!?!
    I'm pleased to hear that Win10 will be updated for free to all consumer users for ever.  I might even invest in a Win10 computer on that basis.

    The people who will be crying are the Microsoft developers who need to keep churning out sub-standard stuff to stay in a job.  The progression route of Windows from one incarnation to another is ...
  • Replied in Linux Distros
    My first and current serious attempt has been with Mint KDE.  I now learn that Mint is dropping KDE.  As it happens I've got to like the KDE desktop so I'm looking at Kubuntu.  My issue is that ...

    The normal route for buying Win7 is to obtain the download from Microsoft and then buy an appropriate licence from hopefully a respectable source.  There is no risk of buying malware, only the ...
  • Indeed and my apologies for looking at the original photo too quickly. I thought I was looking at the pin that sits under the plate and activates/releases the lever:
  • That alignment button which I also have on some mounts is a totally different function to the first one you asked about on the quick release plate.
  • That isn't the same.  In your first photo the plate in the middle comes out and is usually attached "permanently" to the camera.  It is a quick release plate which quickly slots in and quickly ...
  • On mine, if I've pulled the lever out and I want it back in again I press the button, similarly when the quick release plate (fastened to the camera) engages it also causes the lever to close and ...
  • I bought the Kenko Teleplus HD 1.4xDGX and it works with varying degrees of success on all my lenses* on my 700D.  Obviously it would be silly to use it like that but the prime targets were the ...
  • As is pointed out elsewhere in this thread birders and photographers have different agenda and that was one of the main causes of my problems, going with someone who could take me to where she ...
  • I suspect you are overdoing the consent issue but one way around it is to upload the picture to Dropbox and put a link on here.  Only those interested in doing a fix will take the trouble to ...
  • Replied in Linux Distros
    As I type I'm running Mint with KDE on a dual boot Win7 Pro laptop. I'm in Firefox and have got Digikam for my photo viewing (on a shared partition). The biggest single hold-up to being a heavy ...

    Yipes.  This post makes me think it could be about everything that is wrong with WIndows!!
  • You've told us what zoom you have, 55-250mm.  (250 divide 55 = ~3x) Now if I earned 60x what you do it could mean I earn £60, or £1,000,000.  So you'll need to look up the actual zoom range for the ...
  • Thanks - I'll move on from that point of view. I did mean AI Servo - apologies, and it was what I tested last night.  Certainly better than I recall the 450D.
  • Well I would hope there is though I'm not sure the number of points is a relevant issue.  I only mention the 450D because I recall reading that fact.  I've not seen anything that explains the ...
