Presumably they rolled it back to Windows 10?

'Apple warns that high-powered motorcycles can damage autofocus, image stabilization in iPhones'

Particularly if it is run over by one.

JakeB: Setting aside the usual droll comments, can anyone knowledgeable tell me if buying a special edition Leica is a good investment for someone willing to sit on it for ten to twenty years?

Are there websites which advise/track the value of special edition Leicas?


I doubt it. The market is becoming saturated with special edition Leicas!

derfotograf: It will be the Nikon Z9, because last week Sony has taken over the Nikon company.

I think perhaps that should be overtaken?

DerKeyser: If it’s anything like it’s big brother - the SW321c - it is one hell of a sweet monitor. I bought a SW320 some years back, and it developed a display issue with a stripe across the display. The monitor was two and half years old, and BenQ support exchanged it free of charge to a SW321c - no questions asked. The best support experience I have had yet.
And oh boy is the SW321c a sweet monitor. VERY good uniformity and calibrates well below 2 deltaE in all 16 zones i measure on the display. Very impressive.

My only gripe is the palette master software.... they really need to modernize and optimize it. Pretty buggy and takes quite a while to do some testing and calibration with.

You're the 3rd person in these posts to comment that their Benq monitor had a line/stripe problem...

Indohydra: I don't understand. You can get an image on a piece of plastic? How does the camera print anything on plastic? Or is that done in a "lab". I don't get it.

'You presented them with a projector and screen.'

And then probably never looked at them again! Two of the, many, advantages of digital are accessibility and ease of viewing.

I don't know which is the more remarkable, the imagery or the city itself!

Turn down the brightness/contrast!

GSD_ZA: The Windoze install seems a bit flaky. Time to dump Microsoft once-&-for-all.

I've been using Windows for nearly 60 years. Apart from the occasional cleaning and painting, I've had issues at all.

JNort: “ H.265 is about twice as efficient as H.264, meaning you can capture just as much detail at half the bit rate, or a lot more detail at the same bit rate”

This is a much repeated statement with respect to HEVC, unfortunately its only partially true. Using say 4k footage, the benefits over h264 decrease as the data rate increases. By around 70 Mbps the file size/data rate benefit is ~ 3%. By 100 Mbps its gone.

'Source on that?'

Some ketchup, thanks.

Does it just search the Exif data for 'Canon' and delete everything else?

May as well. Many of them post comments on here.

Perhaps they were using Android phones instead?
