  • As an owner of both Leica M and Olympus gear, I can tell you for sure that they do not share flash pins.  However, the Leicas can at least trigger an Oly type flash, which means that I can use my ...
  • I'm considering the Q2 as a supplement to my M system.  I have noticed with the M and lenses that I can generally compensate for not having brought a longer lens by simply cropping in composition ...
  • I agree!  As a long time woodworker, I have never seen a workshop that clean.  It looks like a piece of wood has never been cut in there!
  • I don't think there is any method that qualifies as "easy" for people who have little in the  way of equipment or computer skills.  (I think I've tried them all.)  My suggestion is that they go ...
  • This is very similar to my thinking.  I have a 2014 Mac Mini with 2 displays (NEC 27in and Apple Cinema 23in), 5 external HDDs, a Wacom tablet, 2 printers, a scanner, and USB connected speakers, ...
  • It's possible our children and grandchildren WILL have to pay for the air if we carry on as we are. Perhaps they will say that now would have been a good time to pay Brazil for NOT cutting down...

  • I wasn’t suggesting it would be faster with what he has now, just a convenient way to off load his internal HDD now, and then use the same drive with a new computer for better workflow.  Some HDDs ...
  • Anything you can buy will give a considerable speed boost over what you are using now.  An iMac Pro is way overkill. The current Macs use Thunderbolt 3 which is such a huge step forward from USB2 ...
  • 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 ...
