  • It’s worth noting that follow-up runs of Robocopy will only add new or changed files to the backup set. So, the initial run might take several hours, but your subsequent work will be saved in a ...
  • After removing the obvious bloatware, I've never had problems with well-known brands, except for the present issue, which is related to the Dell SupportAssist vulnerability.
  • Well, it was isolated in the sense that the WiFi network would very occasionally fail to see a shared resource, while a Dell maintenance notification was usually in evidence at the same time. ...
  • Created discussion thread Dell services, but no network shares?
    I've found that some Dell Services occasionally interfere with network reconnection at startup. I've only investigated this after upgrading to Win 11, and since disabling Dell Digital Delivery Services
  • Thanks, I do manage the occasional good shot. (25 years digital photography, 40 years film photography before that). The f/4 zooms that I use with my Sony cameras cost in the vicinity of $1600 ea., ...
  • Even better if displayed in real time in the viewfinder, complete with histogram and the previously mentioned over-exposure warning (zebras). My Sony cameras have excellent exposure bracketing ...
  • The bird had returned to his favourite tree and awaited the next victim. Birds with a bright sky can be a problem. Try +1.0 exposure compensation. Kit lens for my Nikon is 18-140mm zoom which is a ...
  • It was a 70-300mm zoom, and you'll see from the EXIF data (mouse over lower left), that I shot at 135mm. I cropped slightly to improve the composition. Originally 6000x4000, cropped to 4882x4000. T ...
  • Replied in BBF Problem
    I mostly use Sony these days, and the various tracking functions tend to make BBF obsolete. I prefer BBF when using my D7100, although standard AF works well for landscape and travel.
  • Replied in BBF Problem
    With Nikon, the active focus point can be moved to optimise the framing while doing BBF, and I'd be surprised if the OP's camera didn't allow this. e.g. Move focus point to the right and frame the ...
  • Replied in Yes, but ...
    Maybe the camera can concentrate on those functions that it's designed for, such as AF, while you concentrate on the artistic aspects? I believe that you have Sony gear, and if you are using MF, ...
  • Replied in BBF Problem
    Your focus point (red square) seems to be on some indeterminate area on the side of the engine. Try changing to single point AF, move it to the front of the engine while you continuously BBF.
  • Yes, but is it a good time keeper?

    For reference, my Citizen is within 1 second of correct time after three...

  • Replied in Sony a5100
    My first Sony was the tiny a5100, which similar to the a6000, but no VF and has less external controls. Lens is Sigma 19mm f/2.8, so a nice compact rig for travel. The camera is now used by a ...
  • I have a Sony a6000 with Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 lens for sports/wildlife. Shoots at 10+ frames/sec. with good tracking. (Even keeps track of subjects that briefly leave the frame). Plenty of AF ...
  • Proprietary 500W power supplies. In the event of any failure that's expensive to fix, I intend to use the remaining components in a rebuild. No issues so far.
  • Interesting. I've only ever used my 15" Dell Ryzen plugged in, and it has performed well for the past three years. I'll watch what happens when running on battery. More recently, I've bought a ...
  • I'd also vote for Sony. The AF of even the lesser models is quite amazing. Decent lenses can be expensive, however.
  • Thanks, hardly of relevance to the OP, but he does need to consider video interface options at some stage. DP to DP is preferred.
