  1. I have been using Jpeg Mini but I missed the special pricing. I agree it does an amazing job. I did run a comparison on a photo saved with this and with Capture One by opening them as layers in Photoshop and selecting Difference. There were a few faint white lines indicating that there were differences, but when I selected Normal and turned layers on and off I could not see the difference even at 100%. If I was making a print I would choose the Capture One version just for the reassurance, but for other use Jpeg Mini is my choice.
  2. Indeed. But are we interested in the best available or the merely decent? Each of us must make his or her own choice.
  3. Excellent colour photography.
  4. The sensor in the Canon R falls short of Nikon and Sony according to this https://www.dxomark.com/canon-eos-r-sensor-review/

    Forever and always

    It is better than the alternative.

    The monochromes

    Chris, your postings of your recent photos are outstanding. Where and when was the trip?

    Lions - Day

    Thanks for posting, Chris. The lion and lioness at the water hole is an outstanding photo. Needs to be printed large and put on your wall.
  8. Thanks, Dallas I need to check this in person to see if it is comfortable for me. I use the waist belt when carrying a lot of gear. It puts the main weight of the bag on the hip girdle, which is much more effective at load bearing than the shoulders. But there are many circumstances where this is not necessary, so the removable belt and the strap stowage generally are very good features. I use either a backpack or a messenger bag. I do not like the sling bag, the pressure on the chest is very uncomfortable for me. Glad that you are not increasing your tsetse fly risk!
  9. Looks like a great bag. It is 10 years since I bought a backpack, so I am tempted. What is the weight of the empty bag? Would the front compartment hold a 13 inch laptop? I am not keen on bags where the laptop is stored between the user's back and the camera gear, as that could mean a lot of weight on the laptop if the bag is laid on its back. Having the main opening at the back of the bag helps with this problem. From what I remember, tsetse flies are attracted to dark blue, so some insect repellent might be a useful accessory.

    Rainy Day Walk

    The Fuji 80mm is stunning, but pricey. https://www.fotozones.com/live/index.php?/forums/topic/63180-first-outing-with-my-new-fuji-80mm-macro/&tab=comments#comment-518781
  11. I have a custom feed My Unread Content which shows posts since my last visit. Typically that would be from the day before, but sometimes from the same day. Opening a post from that takes about 4 seconds. Returning to that via the back button or by clicking on the feed button takes about the same time. Opening a post from that feed in a separate tab also takes about 4 seconds, but means that returning to the feed is pretty much instantaneous, as it remains open in the original tab.
  12. I clear cookies regularly. I have logged in and out many times. The issue is the same with Safari (my main browser) and Firefox. I do not have this issue with other photography sites.
  13. Sorry, Dallas, I did not explain properly. Everything I click on is slow to load. If I do what I do on other sites, which is to click on a post to open it and then click the back arrow to return to the post list, the whole cycle is painfully slow. If I open a post in a separate tab, I do not have to click the back arrow to return to the post list, as I have never clicked away from it. This cuts the time of the cycle by half.
  14. The site has been very slow for me (UK) for a long time. I have to right click on posts to open in a new tab, because if I open a post in the same tab it takes forever to go back to the list of posts. The slowness of the site was discussed some time ago, and things have not improved since then.
  15. I think you need to be online to sign in to the CC Desktop App. If I then go offline, I can use both Photoshop and Lightroom at the same time. However, if I sign out of the CC Desktop App and then go offline, I cannot use these programs. Have you tried signing in to the Desktop App and then going offline (simulating being out on the road)?
