A paltry 46 emails were exchanged between members this week – but there was still a good variety of problem solving going on! As regular readers will know this is normally a very busy discussion list.
A member whose iMac was suffering from the known graphics card problem asked how to get Apple to repair it for free, and he received lots of advice so the outcome is likely to be a success story. Being able to use the ‘clout’ of PI in such situations usually focusses the minds of suppliers!
Another member had produced a 36 frame hand held ‘stitched automatically in Photoshop’
panorama, but now needed a print. A member with a 44 inch wide printer came to his rescue (and only charged beer vouchers!) The generous member runs a well respected London based pre-press business.
There was a British Photographic Council Meeting coming up (which PI is a member of) and there was one contentious issue to be discussed. So it was …see next week’s edition!
The new LightroomCC upgrade produced problems for some members (and most users on the CC scheme it would seem!) Workarounds were discussed.
A new box for RAID and JBOB and thunderbolt connection was requested – answers followed quickly!
One UK member, who as a member of the Federation of Small Businesses, was attending one of their meetings about “Do I have a legal right to use this photo?” told us that it was open to non-members, and urged as many as possible to attend.
Lastly, a member supplied a link to a video, comparing the first Canon DSLR to the latest version. A difference of 2megapixels vs 50 megapixels and 17 years. Amazingly the controls and the menus were very similar. It was only when the resulting files were blown up that differences emerged. And we won’t even talk about long exposures of the night sky…. CMOS sensors rule!
