Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

I use an X-Rite i1Display Pro and it creates and applies separate profiles for the two monitors attached to my single graphics card. I'm very pleased with the results.

Re: E620

The file manager on the Huawei tablet (I can't remember the app's correct name) should be able to see the SD card in a card reader and then allow you to move the photos to one of the tablet's native...

Re: When i was a child

Kids had scurvy and rickets, many people didn't make it to 65, etc.

Sadly, this is still true in many parts of the world, but - as far as the UK is concerned - you can keep the good old days...

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

I've used ExPro for my earlier cameras and they always seemed to be slightly lower capacity than the Olympus, but I'm reasonably happy with them. One started to expand, but the others have been fine....

Arrow Re: Windows 10 raw file preview

I originally upgraded not too long after Win10 was released but it was so awful I rolled back within an hour. The roll back wasn't perfect and it took me a few hours to fix everything.

Windows 10 raw file preview

Before I recently upgraded to Windows 10 (as Windows 7 is going out of service in January), I had a plugin codec that allowed Windows Explorer to preview my raw files.

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

As it happens, the link you've posted shows that the OM-D E-M10MkIII was added in 6.13 but I wasn't going to Google that for you. Just wanted to make you aware that 6.13 wasn't the last perpetual...

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

I've been tempted by On1, but have resisted.

I don't like the way they force you to use .xmp files, which I don't use, and there's also some discussion about them not providing a backup process...

Re: Blur feature in Lightroom

You could always use the spot removal tool to overpaint with something else, or an adjustment brush to adjust, say, the exposure of the area.

Re: AC-5 power supply for HLD-9 grip

The part I specified in my write-up is no longer on Amazon. ExPro offer a similar part (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ex-Pro%C2%AE-Replacement-Nikon-part-EH-4/dp/B0051GLXUO/) that is claimed to be 5A. It...

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

It's just a standard USB-C lead - easy to buy and you may have one if you have a recent phone.

One of the best things about the MkII was the move to standard connectors for USB, video and remote.

Re: New firmware finally imminent?

I'd quite like to see better options for multiple exposure in camera... ie more than 2 frames and a bigger choice of blending modes. I doubt it will happen though.
