  • Got a look at the two FF Panasonics this Tuesday in Toronto at the Profusion show, but only 'under glass'.  The cameras looked very similar to each other and only slightly bigger than the G9.  The ...
  • For some of us (like me) picking a monitor that you will spend so much time looking at is an important decision.  I personally don't find the iMac monitors to be right for me.  I don't like the ...
  • Why is someone a "whiner" for wanting to keep monitors they already own (and like), or choosing specific monitors to suit their specific purpose?  I prefer the 'separates' approach.
  • Just looking at the specs, it would appear that you could get a fully loaded Mac Mini, add the new Black Magic eGPU Pro (same video as the iMac Pro), and a 5K monitor, and have a machine that is ...
  • Looks like I misread the promo lit 😞.  Hopefully however still somewhat more powerful than my current 2014 mini!
  • So the Mac Mini goes from under performer to over achiever!  You can't even buy one with less than 4 cores, a high speed SSD, and discrete graphics.  As expected, the SD reader has been lost in ...
  • That will work fine, but you are at the bottom end of the range.  Given that nothing is upgradable, if you plan on owning this computer for a while, I would give some serious thought to doubling ...
  • I have an EM5 (original) and an EM1.2.  There is a world of difference between the two cameras with regard to AF.  I can't comment on the EM5.2, but for focus performance the EM1.2 is very good ...
  • You are probably OK. My wife spilt a glass of orange juice on her 2012 MacBook Air when it was 2 years old, following which (not surprisingly) it did not work at all. Apple told us that the the ...
  • I didn't compare it to last year's 13" as I don't own last year's 13", I own a 2014 mini.  I also don't do video (or "complex rendering") so didn't consider those either.  My concern was how it ...
  • I just received my 2018 MBP 13 (Touch Bar, 2.7 Ghz quad core, 16GB, and 1TB SSD).  So I loaded it with LR Classic, and did a test using my Olympus OMD EM1 mk2.  I put 1165 RAW files on the card ...
  • It's been a few years since my library overran my internal storage.  So yes, putting them on an external drive is a logical solution we all come to eventually.  If speed is a major consideration, ...
  • The specs of the computer are more than good enough for LR and PS.  And it sounds like it is set up in an optimum way with the catalog (a fairly small file) and the apps on the SSD and the picture ...
  • If I understand you correctly, by 'rendering' you mean having to wait for a few seconds on each image while LR shows the 'loading' message as it builds 1:1 previews for you to check focus accuracy ...
  • I would suggest replacing the internal HDD with an internal SSD.  A Mac repair person would be able to do this for you if you are not comfortable with dissecting you machine.  Put the LR catalog ...
  • What actions are taking too long on your current set up?
  • The obvious advice is to wait a few months as new MBPs will almost certainly be out by year end.  The other obvious advice is to avoid the MacBook Air.  We have a couple in my house and they are ...
  • The simple answer is that yes, the low spec MBP you are considering would indeed be sufficient.  In fact, as has been pointed out, it would be much faster than what you are using now in every way. ...
  • That could well be true.  I  tend to shoot in RAW all the time.  But is there any way to force LR to generate the all the previews rather than going with the embedded versions?
  • Created question thread Leica files and Lightroom 6
    When I import files from my Leica M 240 (or 246) I initially see a set of images after import which are slightly compressed along the long axis leaving a black band at the top of the image.  As I ...
