    Thats encouraging. The main issue with Cloud computing is the speed and reliability of the available Internet connection. I've used Defender (and it's predecessor) for a long time without issues. ...
  • Some of the better APS-C lenses are quite expensive as well. The Sigma range of APS-C lenses are affordable and sharp, but it does seem to be a waste to use the a7 in crop mode. I actually bought ...
  • You beat me to it. Google (and other search engines) are surprisingly good, in fact it's often quicker to search for DPR posts on Google rather than use the in-house search tool. For example, I ...
  • Here's a shot with the 35mm f/2.8. I took this garden scene mainly because it had a lot of detail.
  • Having both the Nikon D7100 and Sony a7, I can give you some relevant information, remembering that the D7100 is somewhat better than the D7000. Kit lens for the D7000 was usually the 18-105mm or ...

    Note typo (it's catching!) The 200Gb is rather small, even for 2013; 500Gb was pretty standard then. Being "clogged up" with programs shouldn't slow it down, provided that there's some space left ...
  • Well, you seem to be aware of the problem. At least you know about the two-stage shutter button; many amateurs don't. That's why it's usually a waste of time when someone offers to use your camera ...
  • Yes. Typo, not brain-fade.
  • I'm unsure what you mean by "judder". Are your photographs turning out OK? Are you doing anything peculiar when, as you say "I suddenly move slightly"? -It's usual to keep still when you are taking ...
  • Cloud storage. Everything depends on your ISP (speed of upload/download and your quota in Gb/month).  Just ignore it if you don't want to do it. Recent updates to Win10 have offered a host of extra ...
  • Your images are best described as 42MPix (megapixels), with a file size of ~82Mb (megabytes); that's roughly 12 images per Gb of storage, or 1200 per Tb. Some will quibble at the actual reported ...
  • Your best option is an E- mount Sony, such as the a5100 or a6xxx series. The best adapters are alloy, and will only cost about $50. The Sony cameras mentioned have options specifically designed for ...
  • Replied in Why a laptop?
    My thoughts exactly. My notebooks are mid-range, and fast enough for most tasks, but the screens are only 1366x768 and not wonderful. The computers are primarily intended as desktop replacements, ...
  • Interesting. I tend to do everything IT in a compartmentalised manner with very little program integration/interfacing... (1) Make a folder for the new batch of images.
  • I've used Picas for years without ever looking at any items other than what's in the File... menu.
  • The 200msec. figure is well established and is very relevant to sports such as shooting and drag racing. Dragsters have their starting "tree" so that they can anticipate the precise starting time. ...
  • Thanks for the confirmation; I had done a quick calculation that it might be <0.08s. I did a test using a tennis ball rolling (fairly unpredictably) off the roof of my shed. I snapped off a burst ...
  • It takes 800msec. for the ball to drop, so that's an extraordinary "Mirror Swing-up" time. I can only assume that you took your eye off the ball. My D7100 can rattle off 6 shots/sec, so if we ...
  • Picasa is all that I use these days. BTW, I've never seen some of the features mentioned in this thread. Log-in? One apparently experienced contributor complained that it was difficult to use???
  • Some of the Pentax DSLRs are worth looking at as well. Perhaps you You feel restricted by the limited zoom range of the LX100, but to improve on that with a DSLR, you would need a large and ...
