Paul Stricklin's recent activity

  • I waited until I passed 70 to try and make a change.  Not well planned or executed.  I hadn't payed attention until a cruise liner refused my planned rafting through some rapids due to my age.  ...
  • Created discussion thread Don't Wait Too Long
    Recently posted my little used G16 and underwater housing for sale. I waited too long to get out into the open water and use my rig. Found that I had waited so long that my old body was no longer ...
  • Created for sale thread For Sale Canon G16 Diving Set
    Canon G16 Diving Set with Water Proof Case $500.00 via Paypal Canon G16, LP-E6n Battery and Charge, Canon Strap, 16 GB Sandisk Memory, 2 LP-E6N Canon Batteries, WP- DC52 (G16) Diving Case, Floating ...
  • I have the non l but the combo works better than the operator.  Did a quick test to see how M5+Flash+100 Non L+Monopod would perform.  Worked well enough for me to try and capture a few shots of a ...
  • After seeing this I will have to try out my 100 again after checking for updates.  My first time out with M3 was frustratingly slow to focus.  I could actually see the focus shifting for several ...
  • Looked a the notes and see that I still have to run the Picasa save info to file before doing anything else which is a slow process.  Thanks for the info. Paul Stricklin
  • More of a bit of shell shock with promises to keep before I can experiment.  But I do need to find an alternative with over 30k images to organize. Speed is becoming  imperative. Paul Stricklin
  • Unfortunately testing alternatives has had to take a back seat while I do a system rebuild and refresh all my image libraries.  I pushed my luck and did one in place upgrade too many.  The last ...
  • Lots of alternative programs to try from all the replies.  The only thing I use Picasa for is facial recognition.  Finding an alternate that actually stores the location of each recognized face, ...
  • 18 mm end is too narrow for 90% of my club shots.  The 15-45 spends a lot of time around 16-17 with about 5% at 15 and the other 5% at 45.  Could wish for a 20 to 55, but not likely.  So my 18-55 ...
  • Found it interesting that some venues do not allow glass on submitted works. Paul Stricklin
  • Replied in Me too
    I finally got so exasperated that I ran sfc, purged the recent files cache, reran sfc, pulled on HD and moved another one to the slot for the pulled one and emptied the recycle bin.  Finally the ...
  • Created discussion thread Irratic File Explorer
    Win 10 Pro 64 file transfers between drives and opening 5th drive acts like the system is asleep. Accessing the 4TB Black WD drive installed via the express connection takes many seconds to open ...
  • You can look in the registry and see if a usb serial number has been blocked or is faulty. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/usbcon/usb-device-specific-registry-settings. Be ...
  • Western Digital has several troubleshooting guides on their site.  I just lost a 4TB drive when is fell 24 inches.  Does odd things but won't initialize.  I have had lost drives before, since I ...
  • Apparently we photographers need to be more proactive in insisting on credits being clear and used based on the judges comment about previous use without proper credits.  Tracking all usage will ...
  • Partial success - Found the original Picasa 3 data, created a google folder and copied the needed original data over.  Apparently most of the thumbnails will auto refresh but the program will need ...
  • Truly, it is funny to see messages deriding systematic evaluations of lens and body combinations.  After all digital must reduce variations to near zero.  Maximizing ones body+lens+printer ...
  • Going from 20 some years ago memory the system keeps blindly writing to several file/s and can gradually "flush" the sequential data store until the non functional entries are overwritten.  I am ...
  • Thanks for teh suggestions. I have started cleaning up a couple of 3 TB USB drives so that I can use a duplicate finder and separate files to 3 different drives.  I did find a reserve copy of the ...
