  • I'm glad you find Chronoysnc "very useful & intuitive" -- I've found it somewhat the opposite. BUT their tech support is responsive, and in all the years I've had it, upgrades have been free.
  • That sounds smart. With Chronosync, you can control when you back up, and even do versioned backups. RAID 1, by contrast, is very unforgiving of mistakes (e.g., accidental deletions.)
  • From experience, I can't saturate TB3 until I get to 8 drives / hardware RAID. This is also true in another set up I have with a software RAID. And I'll gently disagree with Ashley -- if I'm ...
  • I process my photos now with Capture One; I run two monitors (2560 x 1440, 1200 x 1920) with a 2018 MacMini (3.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 64GB RAM.) I have no problems with the setup, nor do I hear the ...
  • Also agree -- I've shot with an RX-1, RX-1r and the mk II; on the Fuji side, the X100F. I use the Fuji daily now, mostly as the RX-1s are tough with focussing quickly. But when the camera hits, the ...
  • I don't have a Gaia GPS account, nor do I remember it asking me to make one. Perhaps that's a new "feature." There are other apps, I believe, that also make GPX files.
  • I use an iOS app called "Gaia GPS." It makes GPX files which I can export to my mac. The exporting bit is one part that can be inconvenient. I don't know how to do it over USB; for awhile I would ...
  • SSDs do not have moving parts, and therefore are (conceptually, and I believe statistically) more reliable, as well as much faster in having data read from them, or writing data to them, than ...
  • Thank you all for your ideas ... it must be, as people have speculated, something on the lenses. I've had to step away from night shooting for a bit, but I will investigate more, and I'm relieved ...
  • Replied in RAID 5
    I'll admit this was my first reaction too -- perhaps he was stress-testing SoftRAID*? The speeds you get RAIDing these blades pretty much any which way would seem to be "enough," and RAID 5 has ...
  • HoudahGeo will geotag locations. In my opinion it's a bit fussy and how to do it is not straightforward, but the program will write geotag data to RAW and jpg files (or sidecars), such that other ...
  • Thanks for all the sleuthing. No filters (UV or otherwise), no extra glass in front of the lens, not taken through a window but en plein air. And probably not the lens; I can reproduce this effect ...
  • Relatively new to my A9, although I've shot with an RX-1, RX-1r and RX-1r mk II. In all of those cameras, I never saw the kind of "blooming" or smeared halos around lots of lights at night -- LEDs ...
