Re: So much for anti-virus software!

You need to go into Windows settings and then to the Update section where you will find various options for ongoing update control. I suspect it is there which enables the options to appear in the...

Re: So much for anti-virus software!

Without wishing to encourage the W v IOS debate as it will go nowhere I do feel obligated to comment on this remark.

I have run Windows for decades and I have never been forced to update in the...

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

The young v old debate is interesting. I'm 64 and, you may have spotted from my posts, a passionate, and increasingly depressed, remainer. The overwhelming majority of my friends, roughly 55 and...

Superbly put sir!!

A steaming pile of incompetence, hubris and a total absence of planning or any meaningful thought process at all.

First question to answer is why a laptop?

If the machine is for Post Processing, whatever the chosen software, desktop will tend to give you more bang for your ££s and be easier to upgrade and...

For Wee Man

Hi Ed

Can't send you an IM as the system tells me you are full up. It's probably a height thing again :D

Re: Memory Card OM-D E-M1 Mark II suggestions

I bought a Hama device for which the link from Amazon is below. I'm sure you may be able to get it elsewhere but I'm lazy so did the scary Amazon one click thing.

Re: Remote shutter release.

It is now the same as Canon C1, as opposed to canon C3, and so there is a large range of releases available at a variety of price points. I managed to get a new lead for my existing Hähnel wireless...

Re: Remote release

The cable arrived and I can confirm that it works so Canon C1 is it.

Olympus did respond telling me about the Oly RM-CB2 which I knew about and wasn't the question I asked. Never mind :)

Re: Remote release

After feedback from Hähnel, swift response from them, it looks like it is a Canon C1 cable. The Hähnel cable pack includes C1 and C3 cable but as the C1 is the 2.5mm plug we can reasonably deduce...

Re: RIP Toby

I know what it's like Ed and you have sympathy.

Re: Olympus Service & Brexit?

I very much fear you are correct. This is likely to trigger a journey to the break up of the UK as we know it. I so hope that we do not see violence but the mood amongst leavers when I engaged was...

Mmmmmmmmmmm - sounds like that would be setting myself up for a very public fall and endless taunting by the Hobbit. That's my vertically challenged wife by the way :D

Re: Where the oysters come from.

OK - I think we need to establish a basic fact here.

Mersea Island is the centre of the worthwhile universe. Therefore the Oysters we produce are, by definition, the finest in that universe.*yes

Re: Web v Print

If you do go down the print route be prepared for a hit on the wallet, a steep learning curve but a massive sense of satisfaction at completing the image making process.

Good luck* yes
