  • I just put forward the idea of an external monitor, as this can be cheaper than going for the notebook with the ultimate in-built screen.
  • A digital image displayed on a 4k monitor and then captured on film would server the purpose. I remember taking a (digital) shot of a 4k resolution desktop background together with a couple of ...
  • Don't worry about the DX/FX nonsense. Both lenses have their uses. The 35mm would probably be ideal for small family groups, while 50mm is OK for head/shoulder portraits, and you'll find it useful ...
  • Replied in Caché
    The meaning is "storehouse"; de-emphasise the "hidden" aspect. https://techterms.com/definition/cache
  • Very basic stuff and unexpectedly brief. Watch the typos. I'd suggest a list rather than simply putting references in the text. Make sure that you understand the actual definition of aperture, and ...
  • Here's a review... https://www.ultrabookreview.com/2404-14-15-inch-ultrabooks/ Look for features such as 4k (high resolution), IPS (display type). You may have to expand your range to include 15" ...
  • That's the correct method, although I wouldn't choose the longest focal length or greatest aperture. Zoom lenses can require different AF-FT at each focal length, but I found that testing at the ...
  • Having a SSD mainly boosts start-up speed, and is not a must-have option. The CD/DVD is something to consider rather than automatically specifying the inclusion. Again, if budget is an issue for an ...
  • Comments on the high-lighted items. (1) 8Gb RAM is usually enough. (2) 1Tb HDD is also enough. Don't bother with SSD. (3) CD/DV ...
  • As before, a fresh start is best. For my migration from Win7 to Win10, I took the opportunity to upgrade the various programs that I had been using for years, including a fresh install of ...
  • Oh yes, we know about that blessed SSD. :-) Programs can only be installed fresh, not transferred. Don't waste your time trying. You are probably better off finding an email program for Win10 and ...
  • Replied in done deal
    Yet you still went ahead? Programs on the SSD; Data elsewhere. Most programs allow you to specify a default data drive, and PSE is no different. You could also ask on the appropriate forum for ...
  • Highlighted for your convenience. Assuming that the framing is the same (by whatever means, as outlined by E.V.), the images on DX and FX will be the same, and if both are 24MPix, there's do ...
  • I'm glad that someone picked up the "more magnification needed" fallacy, except that you refer to AoV when you probably mean Field of View. The corollary of the magnification fallacy is that the ...
  • Remember that even a 128Gb SSD is still pretty big, and most applications each consume only a few Gb on installation. I was cautious at first about installing applications, but it soon became clear ...
  • I bought a notebook last year (AMD-A9 2.9GHz) mainly because I was interested that it came with a 128Gb SSD and 2Tb HDD. Startup is quick, but not amazingly so, and in general, the performance is ...
  • "32mm" was a typo. In general, your advice is sound. I'm frequently swapping lenses between my Sony E-mount cameras without too much confusion. :-D What can puzzle a beginner is the effective focal ...
  • Replied in Memory Speed
    In all the time that I was building computers, memory speed was something that I never worried about. At each stage of hardware evolution, my wholesaler only ever sold one type of memory and that ...
  • A good tutorial that covers all the options, but for the sort of macro that is relevant to many shooters, the rail is fine. They don't mention focus breathing, but I would be surprised if a decent ...
  • Maybe you could think about a single large screen running a couple of application windows, instead of having two separate screens. I run my laptops with the lids closed and external ...
