  • Won't Windows do this natively? Select the items in a folder. Right-click one of them and "Rotate Right" or "Rotate Left".
  • I started a thread about this issue a few years back. I'm an M5 user. I got into the habit of turning the camera off before putting it in a holster, because the proximity of the holster lid to the ...
  • Thanks everyone for the replies. I have two 18-150mm lenses. The older one is 96..... (2020-12) and the newer 14..... (2022-02). My concern when raising this question was that the newer one ...
  • Thank you. This is probably exactly what is going on. However there must be a different system for EF-M. For a start the numbers are 12 digits, not 10 as in the article. Secondly my 18-150 number ...
  • Has anyone else noticed that newer EF-M lenses have lower serial numbers than older ones? I have some going back to 2013 which start 9, newer ones start with 1 (all are 12 digits long). This ...
  • I'll admit my experience is limited, but I'd broadly agree. I got serious about photography 10 years ago, and when I first saw these things I thought "wow"! A long-reach, compact, and cheap lens!! ...
  • Created question thread Questions re Lens Correction in DPP
    My understanding is that DPP offers lens correction for native Canon lenses. I shoot RAW. When I look at a picture with DPP's Quick View, or open a picture for editing, am I seeing the corrected ...
  • When I had a basic camera (no doipter) I used to have to take my glasses off. I actually lost them once as a result. New camera has doipter, but I still have the issue of not being able to see the ...
  • Replied in Canon m50 Bad
    Maybe the photos were so bad, they wouldn't upload ;-)
  • Rarely have to do this, but if I'm at home I'll use a microfibre cloth dipped in warm, weak washing up liquid solution (like for doing the dishes) and then wrung out so it's almost dry (squeezing ...
  • My 2p worth. Have a look at 'bridge' cameras with a good zoom range. Make sure it has a mode dial with the P-A-S-M modes (Programmed, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual) and not just the ...
  • Thank you. This is looking like a nice choice. I can see why I dismissed this choice previously - The internal dimensions are listed in the TT website as 12cm high, and the combo is 14.5! But ...
  • Thank you for taking the time to send photos. I greatly appreciate it. I have no idea why this font is coming out BOLD. Oh well. In these times of online shopping, it's so difficult to get a feel ...
  • Thank you, I have seen that model (nearly all my other bags are ThinkTank, including one I just use as a 'manbag' - nothing to do with camera gear). However one reviewer said " i bought this for a ...
  • I'm looking for the smallest case available for this combo. I have the M5 but I believe the M50 is the same size. This is for throwing in a rucksack, so I don't need straps, waistband clips, space ...
  • Thanks, but that isn't what I currently do either - my bad for not explaining. Sitting down in the evening whilst on holiday, I usually upload that day's photos from the SD card, thus creating a ...
  • Yup, fellow Swiss Micros DM42 user here :-D. I'm going to leave it there as we are going seriously off-topic, but thanks for sharing your memories.
  • Yes!!! That hits the nail on the head! Give anyone your RPN calculator to use. See just how long they can last without reading the manual :-P
  • I used to think that but I'm now a complete convert. I have 3 SD cards and use them in rotation. I've come to realise that they are designed to be removed and inserted regularly, as opposed to ...
  • I agree that people can do with the manual whatever they wish. But the issue for me I think is that I feel a rush of emotion when I see someone struggling with something. If they appear to be at ...
