    Dragon Age, Mass Effect Sequels May Be Heavily Influenced by Anthem

    I think it's called a ransom. EA: "If you don't buy Anthem, we're killing DA and ME!" Well, not that I honestly care about the next iterations of DA or ME...

    Mini LCD Display to show only system stats?

    Yes, they have stopped updating the original Power Grid. But they are working on this instead They call it the Roccat Swarm. I'm pretty excited for the new interface though :)

    Mini LCD Display to show only system stats?

    How about a cheapie tablet plus Roccat's Power Grid? While I use this combo for playing Elite Dangerous, the Power Grid does have a tab that shows system usage and other useful tabs.

    backpacking w/ a DSLR - tips?

    For the focal zoom section of the lense, I use a larger ziploc bag to allow some free play. My experience is that the more varied the zoom ranges (for a general purpose zoom lense), you will need a larger bag give allowance for adjusting focal lengths - you need to experiment with that. A...

    backpacking w/ a DSLR - tips?

    Have had some experience in photography in less than ideal environments... I do heartily recommend ziploc bags and gaffe tape (lots of them). Besides using gaffe tape to seal up the camera and lenses against dust or water (not entirely water proof), gaffe tape is rather effective in downplaying...

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    Different folks different strokes. I think it's really interesting to read about the differences between camera brands and technologies (advantages and disadvantages). Ultimately each of us have a different rationale in our choice of cameras. By the way... Fujifilm4lyfe! :D

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    While Metabones is "supposedly" working on a Canon-X Speed booster adaptor, some Fuji/Canon users are using Kipon adapters. You lose the AF and IS, but supposedly makes you readjust your thinking by forcing you to go...

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    And stupid cheap as well. I have never encountered such quality and small lenses at bargain prices. I sold my huge camera bag and shrunk it down to a very small one now. I'm no fan of huge knockers in white/red trim or black/gold trim.. unless they wobble in the most excellent fleshy way.

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    Thanks IdiotInCharge :) X-Trans makes me lazy with post-processing. Shoot and print is my motto.. more so when I do it professionally for art gallery projects and faced with tight deadlines. I absolutely refuse to post-process unless it's about cropping or resizing for 300dpi prints...

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    I don't understand the bit about "stabilized macro lens". 1. Mirror slap has always confounded me when I photographed micro organisms... my X-Pro1 seems to have alleviated that issue. 2. Any vibrations are reduced with weights on tripod or having a macro-focused rail/tripod system. 3. Remote...

    Has anyone switched to a mirrorless camera?

    Being using Fuji's X-Pro1 since it was released. It's a lovely piece of kit - it suits my professional work (art reproduction for publishing processes) and interests (flowers). Prior to the X-Pro1, I was on a Nikon D200, Fuji S3 Pro and S5 Pro with a bunch of prime Nikkor lenses. Fuji X-Pro1...

    Macros Lens vs .......

    You can try a third-party bellows and just use your 50mm f/1.8 instead - It will give you 1:1 and more :) Based on a guide for a Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 on a Nikon PB-6 bellows... Ratio 1:1 @ 52mm extension of bellows @ 54.3mm working distance Ratio 2:1 @ 103mm extension...

    Senators to Unveil the 'Ex-Patriot Act'

    [OFF TOPIC] Many years ago, it seemed like a popular thing to aspire to owning a green card or even a US citizenship. I don't know about now. To be honest, I kind of like the "freedom" I get in Singapore, instead of being forced to drop my pants at the airport all the time. To clarify my...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Hmm... why should the review include the 7970? Price point-wise, the review did a stellar job of comparing those that are relevant. Performance-wise, I could switch to the 7970 reviews and compare the data sets. Sure, the video drivers may be a little dated, but it gives me an indication how...
