  1. At Christmas the wife and I both moved from MacBooks to a combo of iPad Pro plus iMac. Now I am wrapping up that move by hooking up new DAS. We each had LaCie 2Big 6TB that have 2 Seagate 3TB configured into RAID 0 of 6TB. We also had a LaCie d2 6TB with a single Seagate drive for Time Machine backups. The new config for each of us is WD My Book Duo 8TB with 2 WD Red drives configured in RAID 0. The new TM backup drive is a WD My Book 8TB. The new RAID set gives read/write speeds in the 330+ range while the LaCie RAID was in the 220 range. The Duo box connects to the iMac with a USB-C cable running USB 3.1 gen1 (5Gbps). The My Book hooks to the one of the two USB 3 ports on the back of the Duo. So only one iMac port needed for both enclosures. We are not taking the next step which would be cloud backups or a backup copy offsite.
  2. 6.14 now available – last perpetual update of Lightroom The goal of this release is to provide perpetual customers additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom. You should only update to Lightroom 6.14 if you are currently holding a license to our perpetual product. Please note, there will be no additional updates after 6.14 for the perpetual, standalone version of Lightroom. You can check out this blog post for more information when this was announced earlier. As always, new cameras are supported for legacy versions of Lightroom, Photoshop, Bridge, After Effects, and Photoshop Elements through the free Adobe DNG Converter. For native camera raw support and ongoing updates with new features try out Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC. These features include color and luminance range masking and the new auto. This along with other future imaging and performance enhancements are automatically included with a membership. Find the latest available downloads of Lightroom 6 here. If you have a Creative Cloud plan of any type, you do not need to purchase Lightroom 6. You can also find the new cameras and lens profiles that are now supported with 6.14. Thanks! https://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2017/12/6-14-now-available-last-perpetual-update-of-lightroom.html
  3. Have it running on my MacBook without problem. I ported over all my 2017 presets. Some Windows users have problems. No shock there. Can't wait for the DAM in Q1 so I can ditch Photo Mechanic.
  4. These days you better be a smartphone or a very nice interchangeable lens system.....not much in between.

  8. I have my family's Kodiak Brownie that is older than I am. And we have the wife's Canon A-1 in closet.
  9. I don't run Flash. If a site is not HTML5, I don't see what the owner wants me to see.
  10. Not surprising as they now do products for both MacOS and Windows. https://macphun.com/blog/macphun-is-becoming-skylum

  12. As the wife and I now only shoot Oly m43, I have stopped visiting so much as I don't care to hear about DSLRs or hear how Adobe is still the best thing since sliced bread. And I am sure there are members here who do not want to hear more about m43 or non-Adobe tools. It can indeed be very difficult to be home for everything and everyone. Best of luck whatever you decide Dallas.
  13. Capture One Pro 10. It designed for Pros.
  14. Glad I swore off Adobe kool-aid months ago.
