  • Thank you, Emily and sorry for the late reply.  I'll take a look at those. Trevor
  • Created discussion thread Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo
    Has anyone successfully rooted one of these phones?  If so what method did you use? It's a recent model so maybe too soon for the rooting/modding community but thought I'd ask. TIA Trevor
  • Replied in What monitor?
    I would say whatever make/model you choose, at least make it a 4k IPS panel. If you are coming from 2560x1440, your are in for a pleasant surprise at how much sharper and more detailed your ...
  • Hi Dan I've been using this free utility for months and it work just fine. All Windows updates stopped dead in their tracks. http://www.novirusthanks.org/products/win-update-stop. I suppose all ...
  • I would like to be able to control/monitor my aircon remotely. That might be useful if I'm ever away for a long time. Usually, my trips are no longer than 3 weeks or so.
  • My room is 88% RH right now. The cabinet has been at 44% for many hours and jumped up to 53% after opening the door for 10 secs.
  • I certainly don't and it's very disappointing with such an expensive lens.
  • Many thanks for the link. Rubberized material to enhance the grip would make sense. It seems the coating is not tropicalized to prevent it breaking down. Canon could easily have put some ...
  • Thanks, Doug. A very helpful reply.  The "go figure it out for yourself" type of reply seems to be the default response from quite a few members on the Club Snap forum. I'm aiming for something ...
  • Created discussion thread Dry Cabinet question
    I just bought one of these Digi-Cabi AD-60 dry cabinets for use here in Singapore where the ambient RH is around 70-85% all year. http://www.digihub.com.sg/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_2 ...
  • You're correct. In any case, I had forgotten that 1.2v re-chargeables won't work in the BG anyway.   It has to be 1.5v alkalines. The circuit just reads them as flat if one tries to use 1.2v. ...
  • Must be something peculiar to that model. Just interested to know how come you decided to replaced the plastic housing rather than clean the coating off.   I can't see the slightest difference. ...
  • Created discussion thread EF 85mm 1.2L USM II
    Has anyone encountered anything similar to this with any of their Canon lenses? I got out my EF 85mm 1.2L USM II after storing it for many months unused in a dry cabinet and found that some coating ...
  • Created discussion thread AA Batteries vs LP-E6N
    Would anyone have a reasonably accurate estimate (based on experience) of how many shots I could expect from 6 x AA Rechargeable batteries as opposed to 2 x LP-E6N (used in the BG-E6 battery grip ...
  • please see my post above https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61284165 I have no commercial affiliation with Stardock whatsoever other than as a satisfied user of its Multiplicity product. It's not ...
  • I gave up trying to network a couple of Win 10 PCs and a Win 7 machine after hours of frustration. When all my PCs were on Win 7, it always seemed to be a breeze - set which folders you want to ...
  • So I gather. Many thanks. I'll remember that the next time although I suspect there will be another completely new problem with the next update!
  • You were absolutely right, Bob. I managed to install the driver and, as I often find with these things, it wasn't that difficult (once you know how). All I had to do (and thank you for the ...
  • Good news! I managed to install the driver and, as I often find with these things, it wasn't that difficult (once you know how).  The biggest problem was my own stupidity, I'm afraid. All I had to ...
  • A CD must have a certain file structure. The first thing Windows looks for is an *.inf file. All I have is a cab package. I don't know if there's a way of unpacking that to a CD that Windows would ...
