  • From memory, the LP-E6 was $60 in the US when the LP-E6N was introduced at $75.  It eventually came down, but I don't remember how long it took.  The N is $63 vs. the NH at $79 in the US, so I ...
  • Hi Joe, Can you provide additional details? How noticeable are the blackouts to you? If you're using only the CFE card, are you saying that you don't experience any blackouts, whether or not you ...
  • I bolded the statement that people seemed to miss.  I don't have an explanation myself as to why a battery can ship via air when it's within a camera package, but ships via ground when it's not.  ...
  • I don't have the RP, but a quick check of two of my Canon cameras shows that they don't appear to allow a longer shutter speed than 1/60 in Program mode.  Like Mark B suggests, using Aperture mode ...
  • Which flashes do you have?  If they are not compatible with the Godox system, the X1TC won't fire them.  If they are compatible, the next thing to check that hasn't been mentioned yet is making ...
  • Replied in Power supply?
    Which PSU will you try to get?  A lot of models are unavailable or in short supply. James
  • <snip> I used to have the 400mm f/5.6L as my birding lens until I sold it when I bought a longer lens.  What I remember is that when I checked for focus accuracy and sharpness, it was very slightly ...
  • There are EVGA RTX 2080 Super models that are dual slots.  The cheaper ones around $700 (dual fan and blower style) and the hybrid models closer to $800.  Other models are listed as 2.75 slots. James
  • 50 x 50GB = 2500 GB, not 250 GB, so it's $36/TB for BD-R in this example.  Puts it in the same general range as an external HD.  Doesn't impact the rest of the considerations though.  :-) James
  • If you use Windows, right-click on the folder you want protected and choose Properties.  In the Attributes section at the bottom, click on the Read-Only checkbox until you see a check.  When you ...
  • Well, since I replied to your post with quotes, it's obvious that I did read it...  ;-) We have different evaluations of what is relevant, so I'll just leave it at that. James
  • Here is rb61's quote from a few posts ago in threaded view. "Do current models of card readers make the best use of both USHI and USHII or do I need to look for a specific reader? Let me know if I ...
  • UHS-II has a second row of pins, so the device also needs it to support the higher UHS-II speeds.  If it doesn't, then the UHS-II card can be slower than a fast UHS-I card.  If you go to ...
  • Av mode sets the shutter speed based on the scene and parameters you set in the camera (metering mode, exposure compensation, ISO, etc.).  If you're getting 1/30 and want faster, crank up the ...
  • While the camera has to support HSS, actually enabling HSS is done on the flash, at least for Canon cameras.  You've mentioned camera settings, but haven't mentioned setting it on the flash. When I ...
  • If you leave the floor uncovered, you'll have to edit every single photo, assuming a full body shot.  How about covering the floor so that only poses where the dancer jumps or extends high are ...
  • Replied in Alaska advice
    Alaska is very large and locations are far apart, so I expect that you'll have to rent a car to get to places on your off days. Fairbanks to Glenallen, Anchorage, Seward, and Homer are 4.5-10.5 ...
  • The HD 7850 has a recommended power supply of 500W, so you should be covered for any of the other GPU options you listed. Also check which functions are GPU-accelerated in the version of LR that ...
  • I bought the Canon battery pack 10-12 years ago and it's worked properly all of the time for me.  Personally, I wouldn't bother with a battery pack that is finicky or makes me constantly wonder if ...
  • TL;DR version... As others have said, the combo takes a significant hit in image quality and focusing speed so instead of buying a teleconverter, save the money and use it for a 100-400 or 150-600 ...
