  • Marc, if your earlier DSLRs were a D70 and D100 before you got the D40, you are not Nikon's target buyer for the D3500. Same with me. . . I've considered getting a D5xxx for travel to replace a...

  • I've been using OWC enclosures for many years and I have recommended them to friends and clients who also use them. They may cost more but you get what you pay for. . . (I've tried other brands ...
  • If you wait awhile there should be some real-world data available from places like Barefeats.com, not to mention user reviews from people doing image and video editing.  All those "future ...
  • Even when I was using an iMac I used a good mechanical keyboard and trackball. And that was back when the iMac keyboards were not too bad. . .  The current iMac keyboard is junk for doing a lot of ...
  • Good to hear. . . The 6-core seems like one way to go if you are going to upgrade to a 256GB SSD, which is the minimum I can live with.  You only pay $100 extra for the CPU. Of course, if your ...
  • A little tweak of the sharpness setting and that softness will be history.

  • If you don't want to take the time to adjust the camera color settings, simply slap a skylight filter on the lens. . .

  • Since you obviously value your scanned images backing up does matter, sooner or later. It's generally considered to be a good idea to back up before something like a major OS upgrade. Time Machine ...
  • I think that whether you like LaCie or not depends a lot on which drive is inside the enclosure. . . When I was keeping track of such things LaCie would vary its drive manufacturers a lot.  Y ou ...
  • When I read the OP I got the impression that he was mostly interested in portraits and candids, with sports being an afterthought. . .  And bringing in the possibility of a future FX upgrade (did ...
  • There's always digital incident light meters. . .  I did almost all of my metering that way until I went digital and my cameras had a built-in spot meter.  A basic meter can be had new for around ...
  • Of course it's better if you don't need to filter the light right out of the box. But if it otherwise meets your needs after you factor-in the filtration, filters are a viable option.

    FWIW, every...

  • I don't count Dropbox as part of my data backups. . . Dropbox is for syncing data; it's not designed as a data backup solution. And if you keep a lot of data in Dropbox as a "backup" it's ...
  • TFT Central has a review of Palette Master . It's part of its review of the BenQ PG2401PT display. Regarding BenQ quality control problems and The Luck of the Draw. . .  It's not just how good the ...
  • Just slap a Rosco filter on the device and you will be good to go. If I was using one of these I would have some filters on hand for balancing with different ambient light. . .

  • I recommend reading the customer reviews for the BenQ SW2700PT on Amazon .  The thing that jumps out for me is the reports of problems with panels that indicate quality variability not unlike what ...
