  • I used my rocket blower. compressed air can sometimes have condensation i thought?
  • over the weekend I 1) repasted. paste in there wasn't actually completely dry, but it was soooo inconsistent and definitely had air gaps . So did that. and 2) CLEANED the mf. lol. It was FILTHY in ...
  • You might be interested in an update. computer works basically fine when the AMD GPU isn't active. Using Lightroom and having the GPU going is when the battery drops 5% at a time every couple ...
  • unreliable keyboards. allegedly. can't talk from experience. I also don't like the feel of them when i did try one
  • and yes, coconut battery has it at 82% capacity I'm going to take it apart later today and clean it out with a rocket blower inside, probably repaste it because why not and see where that gets me. ...
  • after updating to monterey, the battery seems much more stable. i did a quick import and edit of 18 raw files (built smart previews and 1:1s) in lightroom and experienced none of the crazy drain it ...
  • eff, maybe i spoke too soon. everything seemed to be fine so far just watching a couple youtube videos and the apple tv app, but i fired up lightroom to edit some photos, and the battery drained ...
  • thanks for your feedback! I love Luke's videos, have seen lots of them. Well , over the weekend i did buy a 2015 MBP 15". 1Tb 16gb and the 2.8 cpu with amd graphics. The battery seems to be good, ...
  • I currently have a 2012 non retina 13" MPB. It's been a trooper for the last 9+ years, but it's time to get something new. I torture that poor thing with photo edits, fans screaming for mercy. ...
  • Replied in Static
    thanks all. I did use d9 at the last and it did work better. Still not perfect, honestly i know the 85 1.8G isn't exactly renowned for focusing as it is, so that might be the weak link of it now, ...
  • Really? But the reviews all praise 3D tracking so much, even DPR's team. Such a bummer to hear. I know I did use 3D tracking on a D7500 to shoot my friends once at an event and it was all over the ...
  • Created discussion thread Which AF mode for concert photography?
    Curious for those that shoot concerts, what their preferred AF mode is? I mostly tried 3D tracking, putting my point initially on a persons face, and I just find that the focus point just drifts ...
  • Replied in Maybe?
    dude! they do look like smurfs lol. and at this place, the musician will be turned into a dark smurf, but the background has no color because they'll place the colored lights only on the subjects ...
  • Is there a reason why you say that? Why it would be too challenging?
  • Created discussion thread Mist filters for...concert photography?
    I really only have ever used CPLs for automotive and landscape stuff, but recently have done a few concert shoots when I saw a DPR article today about mist filers and the effects they can have on ...
  • Well, I did it. I bought the 70-200E FL. It delivers some beyond belief sharp results and gorgeous images. I did have a few autofocus struggles in AFC at close range i found with some front ...
  • Thank you for your input. I think I will try that myself, fine tuning (just in-body for now) using the outer points and then seeing how translates to hopefully not messing up the center points.  I ...
  • Because I don't know why the tap-in would fix this. If it nails focus in the center and misses on the outer points, but at the same distance to subject, how would that resolve the issue I've ...
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 35 1.4 outer focus point misses
    So I recently got a Tamron 35 1.4, a lovely made lens that takes gorgeous gorgeous photos, but after fine tuning it in body (not the tap in console), it really only works consistently with the ...
  • but wouldn't that mean it would still have issues when focus and recomposing? or when focusing with live view, too. This is my only and first wide f1.4 prime so i can't compare it really to know ...
