    I've not used the new CC version but the forums are awash as per usual with complaints about performance. I did try LR6 trial and I'm not seeing any improvements over 5 for performance. Honestly over time having used all previous ones the software has got slower and slower, not just exporting but making adjustments, […]

Digikam is a free photo DAM that I have heard good things about. A photo can be opened in Rawtherapee or another […]

Sony ‘HowTo’ videos – a different level

NEX-5 with ECM-SST1 mic

Some parts of this were very close to large PA system speakers; others were close to dangerous loud instruments of war, notable Border fiddle and Scottish bagpipes from the Coldstream town pipe band (not the same as the Guards, this is the locals not their namesakes!).
