Re: Storage.

thats a pretty complete looking system alright. how do the naming conventions work forthe disks/photos? for example I don't so much worry about the file names for the photos but the folders they are in are dated

Re: Storage.

(which of course is until 2013, we must not forget the imminent foreclosure of the current material world - we are a bit overdue in airplay revival for David Bowie's 'Five Years'...) David HAH yes of course. there was a guy with a sign saying just that downtown earlier! Course his sign just said &q...

Re: Storage.

hard drives kind of worry me. rarely do they last 5 years and sometime a lot less if they are accessed a lot. at least on DVD they will go at least 50 years using decent media... the problem then becomes accessing the files .. hence the catalog I was looking for. I just don't see how LR can handle t...

Re: Storage.

I have a raid array on my current system. I'm not really running out of storage space or anything it's just that the images a piling up faster than I can deal with them. my other problem is cataloging them and I have the LR 2 demo now and I must say it's a little overwhelming. Adobe interfaces are q...

Re: sick 50 1.7 - help please

it could also be a oily aperture. the spring is supposed to return the aperture to the smallest diameter. if oil got on the blades of the aperture then when the camera "stops down" (closes) the aperture, the aperture blades gets stuck on the oil and it won't move. This happens to old lense...

Re: SIGMA 28-105mm 1:2.8-4 Lens

well thats good to know. I think it's been a pretty common misconception then because I see it quoted a lot.

Re: Storage.

Thanks for that I didn't realize LR and ACDsee would handle external storage. I've been circling around the idea of buying LR after I try out the demo. now that LR 2 is out I may give it a shot. but now I see ACDSee (I actually have a license for a very early version of that... maybe the first one.....

Re: Sony Canada repair

Lesson learned. I always make sure I have rainproof bags for anything I carry away from shelter. actually it worked out good because I discovered these think tank products that are super rugged and each piece has a rain coat. I was out with my newly returned A700 earlier and a few drops of rain made...

Storage.

ok so.. now I have 15g of images on my system. I want to burn them to DVD's and catalog them some how. Is there a piece of software I can use to do this? Maybe keep thumbs or highly compressed versions with exif on my hard drives and have a database that points to the disk they are on ? It seems wro...

Sony Canada repair

I picked up my A700 from Sony Canada after a failure from water entering the body. I was caught in a serious thunderstorm with no protection for the camera. this was the equivalent of running it under tap water. I believe the water entered from the screen. not from the buttons or the lens mount. the...

Re: SIGMA 28-105mm 1:2.8-4 Lens

wow thats good to hear. I'm a little surprised though I thought the cameras would default to TTL automatically if a lens without a distance encoder was attached. maybe that info is wrong.

Re: Lightroom 2.0 & Camera Raw 4.5 released

Looks like it focused on the back of the car beside the grooms head? You might not be that close to heaven - this is what the D700 did to me with a pap-style grab shot of the bride - one shot only, fast moving for a car right next to me, had to run ahead to get to position and just one chance of aut...

Re: SIGMA 28-105mm 1:2.8-4 Lens

It's not a terribly expensive lens but I see the few reviews that there are of it aren't screamingly favourable none of those are D lenses either. theres lots of lenses inthat range from used minolta to brand new sony so you have a lot of choice. I was intrigued by your flahs under exposing with the...
