Re: Tripod advice

Prior trips I'd tossed in a GorillaPod, in my laptop case, but never used it...

For my Manfrotto, I had an extra folding chair case, complete with shoulder sling, but it's still a pain, it stays in the closet..

Re: Tripod advice

Toss on some leg wraps, a decent head, and you start putting as much into a tripod as a big percentage of the camera, VR lens.. And since VR isn't to be on, when using a tripod, there is a conflict of interest!!

Re: Birthdates & internet security

I've kept a personal birthday list as long as I can remember being interested, pushed into the Mac's Calendar, so it emails DW a few days ahead.

Re: Tripod advice

I've bought decent tripods, heads, from GorillaPods to Bogen, only to have them hang out here in the office.. Did not take one to our AMS-BUD trip, what with rain, etc, the last thing I needed was one more piece of gear to pack around... Museums, [more]

Re: car salesmen

Since Ma said "If you can't say something good about someone, don't say anything at all..."

I also found a setting which controls whether the Photo app will keep a normally exposed photo in addition to the HDR photo. (Settings, Photos & Camera, then scroll to the bottom.) It also mentions there that HDR combines 3 photos into one [more]

If I take a photo, I can post it on FB, download via Image Capture or delete as needed.

But in Image Capture I'm seeing 2 image files, samd [more]

Since I don't care a whit on the Ignored, it is an aid in that I read the proven hardshell Fools who can deal with the Ignored BS. I have enough headaches, no need tilt at windmills like that. As I spy this thread, so far only one Greyling so far.. [more]

Re: Politics only on Political Asylum?

Simple fix, P-Box them. That means zero connection on any other board, no help, no problem. It does mean some boards are over 50% Ignored Fools, but so be it...
