Sony sensor and lens technology is now so good that I cannot tell the difference in the IQ of my RX cameras and my old DSLR. (You don't see my DSLR and lenses in my gear list any more because I sold them.)

  • The RX10M3 and RX100M3 still do everything I wanted them to do when I bought them. I feel no need to chase the latest technology when I'm getting the images I want.
  • Replied in No Go!
    I'm waiting for a Surface Pro upgrade for my venerable Surface Pro 3. I considered the latest Surface Pro but I'm going to wait for the next Surface Pro update. This pitiful Go thing is a downgrade ...
  • The Surface will still work when connected to a charger. I'd be curious what happens when you give it a full charge and then test to see how long it actually lasts. Changing from Microsoft to Apple ...
  • I don't know. But I doubt if you thought of it and Microsoft hasn't. Maybe patents that Apple and others might hold? Maybe other priorities make more economic sense for Microsoft? Maybe Microsoft ...
  • Unlike Apple, it undoubtedly has everything to do with not being in complete control of both hardware and software.
  • Yes, and a charge cycle is usually defined as charging from fully depleted to full. Most of the time we aren't charging from fully depleted to full. That would account for my Surface Pro 3 doing ...
  • I would be interested in what is meant by "wouldn't keep a charge". Battery technology is so good today that most compact devices do not have replaceable batteries.  The Surface Pro 2 was released ...
  • I subscribe to Office 365 and have the included 1TB of OneDrive space. That's why OneDrive works so well for me. I don't backup program files. I see no point in it. Everything I run is installed ...
  • Replied in SURFACE PRO
    I have a Surface Pro 3 with 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD that I've used to edit with Lightroom CC for the past several years. I use it as both a tablet with pen and with the keyboard. I like it a lot ...
  • I keep 4 copies of my data to remain fail-safe. 1. All my data, images, etc. are kept in my OneDrive folder. (real-time automatic) 2. Windows 10 Backup to attached USB 4TB drive. (automatic) 3. I ...
  • The Dell Premier Color app is apparently gone. The new Dell Support Assist app has eliminated it. I don't find that it's any loss though. I'm still using the Pantone X-Rite Display Pro and I'm ...
  • I'm sure you are going to enjoy your XPS 15 as much as I enjoy mine. I do some 4K video and 4K was important for me, so thus the 4K screen. (It really is gorgeous!) Even with a touch 4K screen I ...
  • Yes, and my wife"s PC did not show up. I made the changes in both PC's.
  • What I want to do and have been used to doing in the past is to simply be able log on to my Wife's PC to transfer photos, etc. I can't even see her machine in file browser now with whatever ...
  • I've had a Dell XPS 15 almost a year and it's been superb and I love it. I went with it because I wanted to do video editing with DaVinci Resolve Studio. The 4K screen is superb for 4K video editing. ...
  • As do I. But in my simple home P2P network of 4 machines, the only one I can now see is my own. I used to be able to see them all and transparently work with them.  Something has gone awry. For a ...
  • Go watch this link to a 4K video of the North California Coast on YouTube. It was made using a DJI Mavic Pro drone like mine. Be sure to change to Full Screen. It will knock your socks off! https:/ ...
  • I've been using a Dell XPS 15 9560 Signature Edition for the past year. i7-7700HQ Quad Core 6M Cache 3.8GHz 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 with 4GB GDDR5 1 Terabyte PCIe NVMe SSD 15. ...
  • Yes, it's a really great diagnostic tool! I've been using it long enough that I can't remember when it first became available. I run it often just to see how well my system is running.
  • To what do you attribute its clearing itself?
