  • I did some testing and it is all inconclusive. Sometimes reformatting a card in a Canon S95 triggered Photos, but more often it seemed to remember Image Capture (which is my preferred app for ...
  • I trust that camera manufacturers know their sensor and lens and design their program lines accordingly, which is one reason why I trust P mode for most of my shooting. Program mode will ...
  • In my experience, P rarely picks such a small aperture unless your ISO is set very low. Even if it does, you can usually pick a different combination of aperture/shutter speed by a short turn of a ...
  • I don't own a Sony camera (yet), only lurking here to learn more, but I think this statement is misleading. Program is very different from Auto, which is why it's almost always grouped with similar ...
  • I struggled with this problem after getting a new iMac a month ago and after much testing discovered that this Photos behavior is somewhat dependent upon the type of camera. When I format a SD ...
  • Interesting photos, stay safe! The helicopter is a CH-46, I'm pretty sure. Smaller than a CH-47, but similar two rotor configuration. (Former Army helicopter pilot, Vietnam era. The Army has ...
  • I made this point in an earlier reply, but I'd like to hear more of others' experiences about this specific point. When I insert a memory card the OS launches Photos. You have to unclick the ...
  • I just figured out a big problem with this solution. I am not at all proficient in Terminal commands, and was suspicious about the "ImageCapture" part. Using these commands in Terminal does, in ...
  • I wish mine worked that way, but it doesn't. Mac OS 10.11.6, Image Capture 6.7 No matter how many times I set the 'app to open' option in the bottom left corner of Image Capture, it will not auto ...
  • Now I've discovered a new problem: Image Capture is not remembering to auto-launch when I insert a card even if I haven't formatted it. I insert the card, start Image Capture, set the "Connecting ...
  • I believe your terminal command is slightly off, as noted in a_c_skinner's reply.  The correct command uses YES instead of true, as explained in a December post in PetaPixel: Disable Photos auto-launch
  • Whenever I download photos from a camera's memory card, the first thing I do is to rename them using the date/time the image was taken.  I.e., IMG00031 becomes YYMMDD-hhmm-ss.  The exact time the ...
  • Thanks for the replies. I, too, seldom use anything other than PASM but I was trying out the Pro Low-Light feature when I noticed this oddity. I've written Fujifilm USA with this question, and will ...
  • Created discussion thread X30 View Mode oddity
    My normal style of shooting is P mode, with View Mode set to "EVF Only + sensor" (#4 on p. 19 of the HTML X30 manual). This way, the EVF only comes on when my eye comes close to the EVF, otherwise ...
