  • I'm not sure if it would sell well, but I'd pick it up if the image quality was "wow" compared to the current D and G. :). And truth be told I'm not sold on adding size, cost, and weight making it ...
  • The only lens complaint from Nikon is firmware updates.  I like the idea of a firmware update dock as opposed to the lens taking a trip to LA without me. Honestly never shot it.  But I love the ...
  • To me it all depends on a couple of things. Your display medium is crucial.  If your posting on social media and your audience is not just eschewing pixel peeping, but also is running small screens ...
  • Only filter I own for that lens specifically is a Thousand Oaks Optical Solar filter (Solar film, not glass).  I used it for the eclipse and I occasional haul it out if there's sunspot activity. My ...
  • That and the 3rd party lensmakers upping their game means the main manufacturer needs to keep their game high to compete Speculation here of course, but IMHO if Tamron and Sigma didn't have their ...
  • Nice.  if you do, pick up a Godox X1R-C--that should enable your ex550 to work as an RF slave without a problem.  Those familiar with the Canon system could say if there are any issues with ...
  • Good luck! One quick tip--go with a flash that allows you to swivel & tilt the head.  If you have white walls or a white ceiling bounced flash looks a lot better than straight-on flash from the ...
  • It's expensive, but I went with the Kirk foot: Kirk foot with the Peak Design plate attached to the top It's a hinged design for the collar, and the foot has the Arca-Swiss dovetail.  I like that ...
  • I'll agree with the bulk of your synopsis.  Size-wise it looked about the same as my original Surface Pro that I just put to pasture and that form factor wasn't too big or small for travel usage.  ...
  • Nice!  Truth be told the next major PC upgrade I make is going to be Chip/RAM/MoBo on that very machine since the Graphics card and disk situations are both in good places, but a better ...
  • I do...no photos and I'm iffy on the specs but I have 2 current home-built systems. The newest is an HTPC.  Intel i5 with 32GB RAM at it's current state with a 256GB boot SSD and a 1TB data drive.  ...
  • I can't speak about Macrium Free version and it's use with dynamic disks, but I can say with absolute certainty that you can set Macrium free up to back up single drives on a schedule. I have my ...
  • I think it really depends on the photog and their outlook on things.  In my case I have the 50 f/1.8D and the 85 f/1.8G--both of which those posts maligned.  However, I'm happy with them since ...
  • Depending on your photo load and internet connection online might not be feasible...but I'm not familiar with Backblaze. When on the road I just make sure the photos exist in 2 places at once...and ...
  • 1st, I'm fully backing everyone saying, "Try it yourself and see."  You got nothing to lose but time in fully fleshing out what your camera equipment is capable of. Beyond that I personally think ...
  • Never, nikdy, nunca, riamh, jamais, soha, niemals, aldrig, mai, numquam, ποτέ, 決して, никогда, 決不, 못, ไม่เคย, aldrei, ਕਦੇ ਨਹੀਂ.... I think you get the point...:) Seriously though there are a few reasons:
  • My NAS is QNAP as well.  I do just about everything you do on it in addition to being a standalone HDHomerun DVR which records live TV--and can do 3 channels simultaneously--as well as being a ...
  • Replied in SATA dock
    To add onto this: My HTPC case has drive slots in the vertical orientation--most likely to save space. Never had a drive fail in it.  My NAS also has drive bays that are vertical.  Awhile ago 1 ...
  • The Bokeh quality is a function of the lens design, not focal length.  You'll have to ensure that the lens you want to get has Bokeh of acceptable, if not great quality to your eye. Depth of field ...
  • The RAID box I had had an integrated power supply. It used the same standard power cable that any PC had. I don't know specifically why it was having issues but it was, and surprisingly, it wasn't ...
