  • Replied in iMac Mini
    FYI, it's "Mac Mini." An iMac without a display is commonly referred to as a "headless iMac." It has been a dream of iMac users for years. . . The upgraded 2018 Mac Mini is arguably a headless iMac. ...
  • Peter, don't feel too badly about what happened to you. . . SIM card swapping is very common and amazingly easy to accomplish at most cell carriers. Obtaining a SIM card for an account not your ...
  • Andy, if you live in the U.S. it's very likely that your social security number and much more personally identifiable information (PII) was stolen in the 2017 Equifax hack. The data for around 145 ...
  • I don't buy it. . . The last thing we should do is discourage people from making the effort when inertia and apathy already claims so many victims.
  • I would find the 20mm to be sufficient but I would prefer having at least 18mm FX. I caution the OP to carefully consider how much gear he wants to carry during the trip.  If he commonly carries ...
  • I signed-up for a 15-day free trial and started my initial Backblaze seed upload late yesterday afternoon. . . As of this writing over 50GB of data has been transferred to the Backblaze server. I ...
  • I'm sorry to hear that. . . It renders the BBF feature a moot point when the rear button has those kinds of problems. Ergonomics have always been #1 on my list when selecting a camera.  If it ...
  • Just to be clear, the reason it took so long to upload your data was because of the 1TB monthly upload data cap. It's a shame that data transfer caps are becoming common among broadband providers. ...
  • Interesting. . . Seems perfectly logical and reasonable to me. I use POP3 email but even if I did use IMAP I would not store my email online after I download the messages. Since archived email is a ...
  • The initial seed for any backup service is going to take some time; it's just the nature of the beast. I think that there are more important things to consider when comparing Cloud backup companies. ...
  • Since I never use the shutter release to activate AF it's a non-issue for me. Using AF-C in this manner is quite common, particularly among professionals. Amateur photographers picked it up from us ...
  • Andy, I'm curious whether you regularly need to access messages from your archive? I'm amazed at the quantity of email some people keep around. Since server storage space is one of the determining ...
  • You don't say what your reason is for the question. . . Are you wanting to take as few lenses as possible? If that is the case, you need to decide if you can live without the extra telephoto reach ...
  • I can only tell you how I use BBF on my Nikons. A menu setting allows the user to disengage autofocus from the shutter release. A half-press turns on the camera meter and a full-press trips the ...
  • The simple fix for that is to not use your iCloud space to store archive email.
  • My math indicates that your average upload is roughly 33GB daily. That comes out to around 1.4GB per hour.  How much data do you estimate needing to upload after a typical photo shoot and how long ...
  • Are you willing to pay for an email service or must it be free? I've used Runbox for over 5 years. You can access messages via a web browser or email client software. I noticed that P. Guyton ...
  • ScanSafe is still around but the basic cost for a 3000dpi slide scan has gone up from 29 to 35 cents. . .  I noticed that it has a 30% off sale thru March 18. The last time I had images scanned the ...
  • Really?  And yet it still did not get implemented on the Q2. . . Even my 10+ year old Nikons have the option. It appears that Leica rightly deserves its reputation for stodgy engineering.
  • For the first 10-15 years doing photography I only used prime lenses. I started using zooms when the quality and speed became acceptable for my taste.  I suppose that information dates me. . . ;-) ...
