  • If you step back a bit in time, say be looking at early "Keplar on the SLR" columns in Popular Photography - you will see that there was resistance to the 35mm SLR as a 'pro' level tool in the ...
  • An old, and un funny joke is that there is a lot of backup software for Windows - but there is no restore software for Windows. Windows still seems to have no painless option for transporting the ...
  • Well for the ORF files - have you tried using Olympus Viewer? [the mac version has occasional oddities but has useful features.] As a Mac user, I'm looking for possible Aperture replacements. One ...
  • 'simple as possible' would indicate a fixed lens camera

  • I'm left eye dominant - and with my M10.2 I have 'nose controlled' focus point section when I forget to disable the touch screen. For action shots, I usually frame with both eyes open. I've been ...

  • I'm left eye dominant, and have been shooting with both eyes open since my first SLR's with eye level viewfinders [Canon FTb & Pellix] This was a change from my earlier cameras - they either used ...
  • Both Aperture and Photos [and iPhoto, Preview] use the operating system's raw file converter, so I would expect the same [non] result in all of them. Does the SilkyPix software supplied with the ...
