About me:

Nikon D3 since January 2008. Great camera for low-light fast action. The D5 is a bit rich for my wallet right now, and also it's kinda bulky, so I'm thinking that my next body will be the D850 (or successor). Right now starting to scan many years of slides and negatives.

All my Nikon lenses seem to work just fine on the D3, from 16 mm fisheye to 500 mm mirror, many of which go back to film days.

I still have my two Nikon F2 bodies, both with motor drives. I even had them reconditioned in 2007, so if/when I go back to shooting film, i'll be in great shape.

  • What he said about catalog integrity.
  • I did build my own last May, but back then I was waiting for the expected announcement in August of the NVidia 3000 series and the AMD 6000 series.  In theory a good idea, but it ended up being a ...
  • I have no specific knowledge about RAM designs.  Does anyone know if current or next generation RAM requires the same 7 mm process used for current gen GPUs? I am not an economist, but I'm going to ...
  • @joe5 It's also possible that your primary drive is so full that it doesn't have the minimum swap space or scratch file space it needs for the update. Have you checked the Recycle Bin lately?
  • The PRC wouldn't need to invade South Korea.  The North Korean government, led by "Fatty the Third" (derisive term used by some Chinese) would take the opportunity to invade South Korea.
  • The PRC government would probably use whatever force is necessary to get employees of all companies to work productively. Remember Tienanmen Square in 1989.  There is also a political faction in ...
  • Just tell Congress that many advanced planes and weapons systems need semiconductors that are manufactured only by TSMC.  Which is true enough.
  • It costs BILLIONS to build a state of the art fab, and the cost seems to go up with every reduction in feature width. So in a way it's kudos to Intel for planning expand their existing fabs and ...
  • Neither my son nor his wife have upgraded their iPhones in quite a while.  So I guess this problem could have been caused by an iOS upgrade. But there is still the larger point that iCloud shared ...
  • Yeah, I think you are right.  Long-term I will have to convince my son (and his wife) to use something other than iCloud.  But right now the timing would be wrong.
  • I have looked at the "original files" downloaded by iCloud.  I don't have access to the photos on my son's iPhone since he lives about 800 miles away. iCloud photos before March 2021 do have the ...
  • I just did a massive download of an iCloud shared album and used EXIFTool to set the Windows file date to the date/time the photo was done. This worked until photos stored into iCloud sometime in ...
  • I am very happy with a dual drive dock from Fideco.  On Amazon, you might find the same design being sold by other vendors.  When I was shopping for a drive dock, I found several designs that were ...
  • Right now, all photos from iCloud get downloaded into C:\Users\(userID)\Pictures\iCloud Photos , into subfolders Photos and Shared . My Drive C: is an SSD, but I normally keep all my photos (and ...
  • That sucks. Not practical in my case, because my son shares photos of his baby with eight family members. Thanks for the quick answer.  At least I know my options here (none ...)
  • My son has a recent model iPhone that produces 1.6 MB HEIC files, which I believe would be 3+ MB if the images were in JPG format.  However, when I download (Windows 10) photos that he has shared ...
  • Agree with you @austinian.  But compared with those other disasters, the inability to get a new GPU card, particularly for personal use, it's just not the same category.
  • There are so many different examples of the damage (and deaths ...) done by covid, and then are all the non-covid disasters like bad weather, droughts, and now the Suez Canal blockage. So the fact ...
  • FYI.  Malware blocks access to the website for Metadata++ due to Trojan.
  • Has anyone tried out this new feature in Photoshop?  Can you post info about your original image, the upsized image, and info about your graphics card and processing time. I'm wondering if I should ...
