  • I have a Mac Mini and a NEC monitor. It works, but can be slow in some cases. I would not recommend it today.  That Mac Pro you are considering would be a huge upgrade to what you have now (as ...
  • Not my problem.  I have >50% free space on my start up (SSD) and >50% free space on my external HDD where the files are kept.  I am coming more to the conclusion that this is primarily a LR issue, ...
  • Thanks, I checked the link you provided.  That was interesting, so it's not just me that seems to be finding LR6 to be slower than LR5.  I suppose I will join the crowd and hope these problems are ...
  • That's true enough.  But it's been quick enough up to now that I haven't needed to consider making it an 'unattended process'. I'm thinking that this is what I'll do next time.  Action photography ...
  • I prefer to have all my RAW files from the different cameras in the same format.  And DNG is as near as possible to a standard format.  (Being doing this for a long time.)
  • Created discussion thread My Mac Mini is outgunned!
    I have a Mac Mini (early 2015, dual core i7 3.0Ghz, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, in other words, max spec. for what was/is available on the Mini).  It had been working fine using LR5 and PS6, with files ...
  • Thanks to all who responded so far.  It looks like there will be a significant uptake of the new fast PRO lenses, but a large number of people also want smaller, high quality lenses, where the ...
  • Personally, I am happy with the speed, but I hope the 17 is a reasonable size, i.e. not quite as big as the 25mm f1.2  I don't mind a bit of heft on the 45mm 1.2, but again I hope it isn't any ...
  • Well it looks very likely that we will be getting a 17mm f/1.2 PRO and a 45mm f/1.2 PRO within the next few months from Olympus.  If the 25mm f/1.2 PRO was anything to go by these will be ...
  • You're confusing bytes with pixels.  The exif shows that the file is 23 Mbytes.  A jpeg is a compressed file, so there is no one to one correlation between the number of mega bytes and the number ...
  • My last DSLR was a Nikon D800E.  I don't miss it a bit.  I can't imagine what you might be doing for a newspaper that micro 4/3 could not do just as well.  But don't you need two cameras?  You ...
  • mg_k. With what you are saying here it's impossible to tell whether you are having problems with the lens, camera, or technique (or possibly a combination). The picture of the skaters is so far ...
  • Indeed it does.  I would suggest using the X14 magnification while manual focusing.  Critical focus on static subjects should be the last of your problems with this camera.  (Much less problematic ...
  • I'm not saying this is wrong, but I'm genuinely puzzled why some people do this.  One thing LR is really good at is separating pictures by year.  In my case, I have one catalog that covers every ...
  • There you go!  I knew as soon as I posted that someone out there would have a specific purpose for the things.  Now I know what to bring next time I visit Scotland in winter and expect to see some ...
  • Graduated ND filters came into vogue when slide film was king for landscape photography.  Slide film has about 5-6 stops dynamic range, and something was needed.  With today's 12+ stops digital ...
  • That indeed would be the clincher for me.  The A9 is almost the exact same size and weight at the Olympus OM-D EM1 Mk II.
  • Thanks that did it!!  It turned out that the missing boxes were unchecked when I control/clicked on File Handling or Apply.  Somehow File Renaming and Destination got unselected along the way. ...
  • Normally I have been using 'Copy as DNG' but it makes no difference what I select.
  • Created discussion thread Weird Lightroom behaviour
    When I import files from a card to LR my import screen is suddenly missing some of the boxes on the right hand side; specifically 'File Renaming' and 'Destination', so that I can no longer rename ...
