  • Good advice Vernon, I will certainly start by giving it a clean. Tony
  • Replied in Cloud backup
    Thanks Chris, Tony
  • Replied in RAID
    Thanks Chris, Raid? What I am doing is recycling external HDDs that have become too small. So they stand me at nothing in terms of cash. The two caddies probably cost less than 100UKP for the pair. ...
  • Thanks rm. I will take a look. EDIT That could be it. I have just ticked the box allowing the PC to turn these off and it did. What the repercussions will be remain today's challenge. The top two ...
  • Replied in RAID
    Thanks Chris, I did look at Raid. Do you want to recommend one for eight drives? I say eight as the empty slot in the front is where the drive that services my Shield and the movies we watch is ...
  • Thanks Billiam. I'm now pretty sure there is nothing I can do. Tony
  • Thanks Simon, I have this setting but I feel it is too general to deal with separate drives. Looking at the properties of one of the seven drives I see this and it makes me wonder whether I should ...
  • Thanks. At least I asked. Now to do something interesting........................ Tony
  • Rubbish picture for a 'photographer'. Sorry about the focus! Being a pedant for backups my solution has been to create an array of seven SATA external HDDs in a pair of caddies. I have a set of ...
  • How many have you tried so you can see if they are any good, JM ? Tony
  • These devices have improved over the years. I have been using Devolo since about 2005. This weekend I upgraded to the latest top of the range with wifi 6 and mesh. The improvement in speed and ...
  • I'm on my second smartwatch. I can't remember what brand I started with - but it was cheap. When I found the advantages of a watch that alerted me about incoming calls and email I upgraded to a ...
  • Thanks Dick, Do you know of a URL which digs out these hidden features? Tony
  • Created discussion thread Altering ISO in movie mode
    For stills with my Oly EM5 mkiii bodies I like to work with a chosen aperture and shutter speed and do my exposure adjustments with ISO. In my experience I get more reliable results. When shooting ...
  • Worked fine. But I rarely use it as the high ISO is so reliable. T
  • Thanks Bassam, I had forgotten there was a C-AF with tracking. And that face can include face and eyes. Two good pointers and I will reduce the number of frames to choose from. Tony PS. I love your ...
  • That I will do - what I am hoping to short cut is the need to do every permutation when folk like you know the answer!!
  • Experiments so far suggest that All Targets is the  best. However it is hard to do a test one one's own - and dead boring to co-op a chum for something so basic. Tony
  • It's so long since I shot a movie of a person talking to camera that I have forgotten which target setting to use from page 65 of the manual. My subject usually moves a bit so I cannot get away ...
  • Thanks for that URL. I realise that third party lenses will be no good if I lose autofocus. My sitters move enough, if they are animated, to need it with the Olys. Maybe I'd do better to invest in ...
