  • I knew the menu-based MS-Office applications well enough to talk people through problems even when I wasn't in front of a computer. That "went out the window" with the new interface.
  • With SS 1/2000s, stabilisation would be neither necessary or effective. A stationary bird only requires 1/250s, so ISO could be lowered and/or aperture stopped down. How is the shutter technique? ...
  • My family has several accounts with a popular ISP and access we them via MS-Outlook, which shows all mail folders without issue. Mail protocol is IMAP, which means that mail folders are stored on ...
  • Are you saying that you have an email account such as ****@yahoo.com , and you are contemplating possibly changing to ****@gmail.com ? Wouldn't you be better off with a mainstream account, or even ...
  • It's not clear how one becomes either a Veteran or Forum Pro, but I gracefully accept whatever title that's bestowed. Perhaps I throw too many curve balls to qualify as a Pro. I always regarded ...
  • There's a tendency to believe that "Veteran" means that a contributor is well and truly past it, but I'll take your comment as a compliment. ;-) My first experience with AF-FT was with a 18-140mm ...
  • Replied in Stigma lenses?
    The comment about off-brand lenses was either tongue-in-cheek or totally misinformed. BTW, most of the step-by-step instructions for lens testing include instructions for "Mirror Up" shooting.
  • Replied in Exposure, etc.
    Just think about exactly what results that "doing the math" will yield. What will be the relevance once you are in the field? Edit: Assuming that fingerpainter's math is correct, he comes up with... ...
  • Replied in Sample of ONE
    That's just another anecdote. My experience with Windows 10 has been entirely satisfactory, and updates mostly occur in the background with little user input. Maybe you are doing something wrong?
  • Mirror slap is hardly a major revelation. I maintain that you are wasting your time using that testing method. (Indoors, low light, high ISO, slow SS). Have you tried testing the lens in the field ...
  • Replied in Exposure, etc.
    Sounds like a futile exercise.
  • Replied in Exposure, etc.
    You are limited by the characteristics of the long lenses that are available for FF cameras. Quite often something like 600mm f/6.3 or similar. Look at the catalogues and hang on to your wallet. No ...
  • I used Office XP (2002) for many years, and only upgraded to Office 2016 after I installed Win10. One basic Win10 computer still runs Word and Excel 2002 quite satisfactorily after installing the ...
  • Funny thing, nobody has ever raised these issues before. ;-) Check the actual focal length of the Panasonic. Not the radius of the "hole", but that of the Entrance Pupil. You would have to take the ...
  • It's true that many users are rather unsophisticated. Even an application such as MS-Word goes over the head of most users. During introductory computer sessions, I used to hand out brief notes on ...
  • Your lens is obviously OK, but your Front/Back testing method is flawed, quite apart from the rather obvious technical problems already mentioned. For example, shooting at f/2.8 makes Front/Back ...
  • I'm sure that you use Linux quite efficiently, and I was also able to do most things when I installed Linux. My point was that SOME Linux enthusiasts fret too much over the OS. It's amazing what ...
  • I was referring to Win95 as the starting point, but I had previous DOS and Windows experience from about 1987. Yes, if Win10 really was as cantankerous as suggested, it would be a full-time job ...
  • What if the sensor was 6mm wide, same DoF? I don't think so. Do the calculations, e.g. DofMaster
  • What do you say to those of us who have been using Windows since the very first version, with close to zero problems? Members of my family who have worked on secondment at various institutions also ...
