  • Replied in Mojave 10.14.3
    Not that machine specific!  OSX updates don't normally show up as upgrades for some period after release, but you can if you wish download and install anyway if there is some feature you urgently ...
  • I just checked with my 2018 MBP (that I'm using just now).  It doesn't chime, but I hadn't noticed it, so obviously I don't miss it.
  • I did a comparison recently with my 17mm lenses.  I have the Pro 17mm 1.2, the 17mm 1.8, the Pro 12-40mm 2.8, and the Leica-Panasonic 8-18mm 2.8/4.  I was not surprised to find that the 17mm 1.2 ...
  • It's quite simple.  Before you get the new MBP with the smaller SSD, buy a hard drive of at least 3-4 TB capacity.  That should do you for the foreseeable future.  (And a back up is a good idea!) ...
  • 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?
