  • Created discussion thread new 24 f1.4 looks good
    Only $100 more than the Batis. Seems like a decent price @ $1,400 compared to the Nikon and Canon 24 1.4s.
  • ... add to that: Zeiss Batis 25mm F2 comes in at 335g and $1300. I think Zeiss will have to lower their price a bit.

  • Great detail.  Rebuild times are pretty rough with RAID 5.  The one time I've done it at home I remember sweating for hours hoping it would finish. Another problem with the original RAID 5 rebuild ...
  • Please share some portraits with this lens when you get a chance. I am very tempted by it myself.....  Most owners seem to rave about the IQ though maybe not the weight...
  • That's a good point, I currently have two old Lacie "2Big" enclosures that are doing some of what you describe, but they could easily be consolidated into the Thunderbay 6-drive enclosure. One ...
  • There's a lot of chatter about RAID 5 failures during rebuild.  I was in IT for a couple decades and while not a storage engineer, I know storage engineers and they generally prefer RAID 10 over 5 ...
  • Ok, here's speed RAID 1+0. I think it was a tad faster RAID 5 but I opted for better protection.
  • I have a 4-bay Thunderbay Thunderbolt 2 version and have been running it for maybe two or three years. It was originally hooked to a 2012 Mini and is now hooked to a 2017 imac 5k with a TB3 to TB2 ...
  • Great point. In a normal LAG setup it won't improve throughput from a single client. The only example I've seen that can actually get around this is on Linux http://louwrentius.com/achieving-450-mb ...
  • I think you may want to start with the adobe support on the LR issue, that's what they are fore. This seems very machine specific.  Perhaps someone here will have solved a similar issue but I ...
  • Daniel, can you explain your raw workflow and how you integrate with Mylio (note: I'm on C1P not LR).  When you say "originals", should I assume they are jpg/tiff type files and not the RAWs?  I'm ...
  • I use Google Photos (ios app)  instead of the iPhone app. (1) I have a process recipe  in C1 to export images to a Google Drive folder. I just run that recipe for selected photos.
  • Replied in Luminar news
    Thanks for explaining your use-case.... very interesting.
  • Yes, if you are using a proper switch, you can "aggregate" ports (it's called LAG). Keep in mind, you'd need to do this twice, once for the Mac Pro's two ports, and again for the NAS's two ports. h ...
  • Nice. I wouldn't be surprised if they announce PM6 at PhotoPlus at end of October.
  • Where did you see that promise?  Just curious.  I respect Photomechanic and figure they will set a high bar for DAM performance (if they actually finish it!!). I'm wrestling with long term ...
  • Graham, I'm curious how the Neofinder <--> C1 catalog thing works.  You indicated it can ingest C1 catalogs. Can you describe?  I'm a heavy C1 user with probably 125k images in three catalogs. I'd ...
  • I think a 10gig LAN would improve things, but it gets expensive to enable 10gig throughout (e.g main switch, each Mac/PC etc.). There are also options to aggregate multiple 1gig ethernet ...
  • Replied in Luminar news
    I hear you, they made the typical developers mistake of underestimating the effort and/or difficulty of what they were attempting to build....  but for me, since I have a DAM (C1) and only paid ...
  • He's a Fuji ambassador and admittedly biased, but his sample images speak for themselves. It will be interesting to see more in-depth testing of the Eye AF and 30fps burst mode. Even though the...
