  • A suggestion: 1) Use your cellphone to capture and share the memorable moments of your life! It's a fantastic instrument for that. 2) Once in a while, go out with your photo gear, by yourself, and ...
  • Replied in 2 GB to 6 GB?
    Failure rate goes up gradually over time, except for early-life failures that are quite significant. I'd hesitate to have a full suite of brand-new drives in there all at once. Having several ...
  • Replied in 2 GB to 6 GB?
    What's the rush? You'd have to buy lots of 6 GB drives. Buy a couple more 2 GB drives instead so you always have a spare or two. When you get above 70% utilization, you can think of the next step.
  • You bought a RAID precisely because the chance of a second drive failing while a first drive is being replaced is vanishingly small. So swap that drive immediately, so that the chance of two ...
  • Part of the challenge of improving Zoom video quality is that the service aggressively compresses the video streams. Not surprising, as they want to provide a reasonably delay-&-glitch-free ...
  • This may be obvious, but do you have the Zoom Video setting on "Original Ratio" and "Enable HD"? There's also a de-noise checkmark in the Advanced tab.
  • Yes! Photography is 90% lighting and composition and 10% gear. That also applies to webcam use. That photo you included had terrible lighting and composition. Fix the 90% first, and you'll be ...
  • You're welcome Tony. Yes, last line.
  • "Ausdom" appears to be a Chinese mail-order house with no dealer presence in the West  and a website written in bad English.  Based on their Shenzen single "factory" location I doubt if they ...
  • I use a simple $20 optical trackball with primary and secondary programmable switches, with my non-dominant hand. Super-fast and precise, and my wrist is resting in the same comfortable place all...

  • Replied in God Speaks
    God said, "Let there be Light". And Man grovelled on the earth and pleaded with God. "My God, there is not enough light..." And God took pity on Man, and gave him ISO. And Man said, "God, blessed ...
  • You're in good company! (But I think he needs new glasses). I just tried that -- useful trick! Thanks.
  • I really don't care what you do Bill. Just don't assume that the lens design that you see in a patent application is the applicant's design, or that the applicant is claiming that design, or plans ...
  • Bill, if you don't care about a post, ignore it. And let others speak for themselves concerning what they care about. These threads get cluttered up by self-righteous lecturers.
  • Hi Dibyendu, how about saying it a third time? Or something original instead? Or even better: read my post? Maybe you'll understand that nothing guarantees that the lens design shown in a patent ...
  • Yes, all the various "grids" that have been inserted into the triangle are (as you point out) nonsense. The entire concept of the triangle was that you could remember which two controls to twiddle ...
  • Interesting question. I see a lot of 27" screens, but very few bigger ones. They are getting too high. But they get crowded left-to-right very fast in typical use. Most people go to dual screens ...
  • The original Exposure Triangle (call it the "apparent brightness" triangle if you define exposure as light falling on the sensor) does not include all of the complexity that you have inserted ...
  • Clearly from the posts, what one looks for in monitors varies a lot from person to person. For me, the gap between my two monitors is the issue -- as if there was a 6" strip right down the middle ...
  • If you don't know how to look for scratches in your lenses, you won't see them. And I don't want to "generally" not have this problem; I don't want to have it at all. A better technique. (1) Dust;...
