  • Having migrated quite a few PCs, here is my take: Older PCs (read: Win 7) with FAT/NTFS partition types migrate quite easily with most cloning software, usually the one included with the SSD.    No ...
  • So what is wrong with, say, Dell UP3216Q? I got a 32" 4K on my desk.   Yes, it is 16:9.   Yes, it replaced a 24" 1920x1200   16:10.   The extra 120 pixels of vertical resolution were definitely ...
  • Replied in Sharp bokeh
    Most lenses tend to be not very sharp wide open, even for things which are right on the focus plane.   My 50mm f/1.4 lens  gets the subject razor-sharp at f/2, and is pretty darn good at f/1.8 and ...
  • In LR, you can create import profiles, and it will recognize a card from specific camera, and place images in that particular directory.   LR can also distribute images into folders automatically ...
  • In my very personal opinion, all of these are exceedingly ugly.   Remind me of the camera I had in the early-mid 80's.  At the time, it was pretty high tech.  But today - no thanks.  But   ...
  • I use TASCAM DR40.   A very versatile device.    I can set it closer to action to use its own mics, or set up a pair of mics connected via XLR with 48V phantom power provided, or if available, ...
  • Replied in Ribbon cable
    IDE rippons are not heavy enough, typically 24-28AWG. PSU wiring needs to be around 16AWG, http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/969M101-16-4/CI16D-1000-ND/3524436 This listing shows a ...
  • Oh yeah.   Special-designed keyboard, too.
  • A quick terminology fix - a 'zoom' lens is one with variable focal length, as in '18-140mm' What you call a 'zoom' would be a telephoto lens, sometimes called 'tele' or 'long' lens for short. In ...
  • To be asked about volunteer work, one generally first needs to make it known that he/she is interested.   Asking someone who never expressed interest can result in an awkward situation for both sides.
  • Well, the question was why Canon in the first place?   Surely you did not own any Canon glass when you picked up your first Canon body?
  • Nikon's flagship D5 is also 20.8MP. Sony A7S II barely tops 12MP. Canon, Nikon and Sony have high-res cameras for shooting landscapes off tripods or portraits in well lit studios. Cameras like 1Dx, ...
  • Reason #1: ergonomics.   Positioning of Canon controls - especially dials - feels like a natural match for my hands.   The horizontal dials on Nikons, I actually find painful to operate - probably ...
  • Take 5D III. Press 'Live View' button. You now have an FF mirrorless the size of 5D III.
  • Looks like Japanese got a better idea... http://www.iflscience.com/technology/japan-introduce-drone-busting-police-sqaud P.S. And then we are gonna have Robert Sheckley's 'WatchBird' scenario.
  • There would have been continued forum warfare if God himself came down and commanded: Thou shalt not have forum warfare.   :-P
  • You gotta be kidding. They value how their phones LOOK?   The LOOK of a phone may have been a factor around 2000, where everyone tried to do something unique looking.    We had candy-bar phones, ...
  • Your major problem is that you don't understand one thing:  beauty is in the eye of the beholder.   What looks beautiful to you is not necessarily so to others.    To you, X100 may look beautiful. ...
  • I massively doubt that.   Ever-persistent rumors of 1Dx update has been floating around for quite some time.   And target audience interested in 1D tier bodies is typically so heavily invested in ...
  • Some people are ready to pay $30 extra for a green 7D2 :-D:-D:-D http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1103274-REG/easycover_ecc7d2c_easycover_for_the_canon.html I am not sure I would want a GF ...
