  • Not sure why you feel a raid system would be better than a simple backup to a separate disk on a scheduled basis.  ChronoSync and CCC are often mentioned in this forum.  The problems that raid ...
  • My wife has an older MacBook Air and I used to have one as well (now replaced by a MacBook Pro). We use LightRoom quite a bit and have no problems. (l also have a 2014 Mac Mini (2 core) that gets ...
  • I also think this is good advice.  I have owned an older MacBook Air and bought a 13" quad core MacBook Pro in 2018.  The MBP is actually smaller than the MBA it replaced.  For your stated use, I ...
  • I am old enough to remember when "made in Japan" meant "same as junk".  And then Japan made "made in UK" same as junk!  (I'm from the UK).  The politics of the country have no bearing on the ...
  • I wouldn't bother.  I have often been away for similar periods and when I fire up my Epson 2880 when I get back, it invariably works perfectly.  Does the 3880 have a poor reputation for clogging?
  • If it is the Photoshop edit capability that you want, as opposed to Lightroom file management, then I suggest you look at current (downloadable) apps like Affinity.  Affinity seems to have a good ...
  • That's interesting!  I had thought that reading/writing to an external drive was something specifically not supported.  I'll have to give it a try with my iPad. Unfortunately I don't have an ...

    It seems that Apple is trying to encourage users to move from computers to iPads for everyday lightweight tasks like mail, internet, music, photos, etc.  My wife could be a possible user for such ...
  • Never mind the 16 inch screen and the new keyboard, what I really want to see is the specified innards of this laptop, in an upgraded Mac Mini:  8 cores and a discrete GPU?  I would be parting ...
  • If iCloud storage is getting used up, you may want to look at what portion is being used by Mail.  If you don't delete many emails, or if you move them to folders in the mac domain, you may be ...
  • I'll put in another vote for the CL with M lenses.  I get excellent results with my several M lenses and the set up is very intuitive.  The auto focus TL zooms that I have are also very good, but ...
  • Replied in Film Scanner
    I've scanned a few thousand negs and slides by every means out there.  I have found that for B&W negs and colour slides, a camera with a macro lens is fastest and gives most control.  There are a ...
  • Much more interesting to most of us I think, will be the increase in speed and the better exploitation of the GPU.  (Might even help Apple sell more eGPUs 😏.)
