  1. Sure they will work, but they will be speed limited by the USB connection on the iMac. Whether future proofing will be worth the price depends on how long the iMac will be in use. There is also the issue of whether the extra speed will be worthwhile for Dallas' use when he eventually replaces the iMac. For normal still photography I do not see any real advantage.
  2. A USB C plug will not fit a USB 2 or 3 socket, and I think that only more recent Apple computers have USB C sockets.
  3. It is not really possible to compare the dynamic range of a scene shot in different lights and at different times of year.

    Thank you, Daniel and Dallas. It was a lot of fun (but very noisy).

    Last Sunday I shot some Motocross at Canada Heights in Kent. Here are some of the results.
  6. I have three external hard drives. One holds all my data - I do not keep anything other than apps on the iMac. The next is a Time Machine. The third is a bootable backup drive managed by Super Duper.
  7. I have used LaCie drives for years, never had a problem. The iMac Pro price is crazy. I think it is not worth it for stills photographers.
  8. Lovely composition.

    Thanks, Hugh. The transportation of ice blocks for refrigeration happened also in the UK and other northern hemisphere countries before the invention of refrigerators.

    The last photograph was taken on Half Moon Island in Antarctica. It is an iPhone XS shot, my camera equipment was in my backpack and I was hurrying to catch the zodiac from the beach. The phone was on as it was being used as a GPS logger. I am impressed with the quality of the iPhone camera, certainly for close subjects. The first three photos were taken at Deception Island, a volcanic island in Antarctica. The name probably comes from the fact that it looks like a normal island, but is in fact a ring around a flooded caldera. The caldera is 9km (5.6 miles) by 6km (3.7 miles). The last major volcanic eruptions were in 1967, a969 and 1970, which destroyed the scientific research stations. The whaling industry had disappeared in the 1930s.
  12. Originally used to collect glacier ice to be melted to make water.
  13. That does not sound good. I hope you find a way to rediscover joy in photography.

    Sunsets, penguins

    Thanks, Dallas and Luc. We were very fortunate with the light.
  15. Great photos of a remarkable structure. There has been a lot of controversy over photography rights in relation to this. Basically, if you enter the property with a ticket, and post any photos online, you grant a perpetual free copyright licence to the Vessel owners to use your photographs. This is discussed here https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/19/arts/design/hudson-yards-vessel-instagram.html
  16. It is quite different from a DSLR, and it is certainly worth spending time understanding how the different settings work and interact. You can download settings to your computer using the Fuji X-Acquire app, and save these to an SD card. It should be possible to save different sets of settings to different SD cards. This is something I have not done, as I normally set a camera up and do not change basic settings. Exposure compensation does not work when shooting manual exposure. I found the touch screen a nuisance and disabled touch controls. Control from the mobile is a bit flakey. There is a new version of the app for this which I have downloaded by not tested.

    Antarctic Sunset

    At the end of a long day, Antarctica served up a spectacular light show. All these photos were taken in the space of less than an hour.
  21. In late afternoon we went ashore to view some penguin rookeries.
  22. Snow and ice, of course.
