    What makes an editing PC fast - good video card (gpu) or the processor (cpu)?

    Hi, I'm assuming you want to do photo editing primarily and some video but both tasks in terms of software are written ( code ) to make use of only single core ( photo editing ) and perhaps a little graphic card resources but newer versions may change to take advantage of video card. For video...

    Hello

    Hi and welcome! Hope you find it useful here although YouTube is full of reviews and opinions but at least we can provide more insight ( locally ) as compared to influencers, not that they are irrelevant but power to information.

    WHATS NEXT FOR M43, after Olympus, what future is left?

    One thing clubsnap must thank you about your negativity about Olympus is that this is the "only" section/ forum that is still active. I think this news will not make you happy although there is still until the end of 2022 for Canon and Nikon to get out of the mess but really they are fighting...

    Hi and welcome to cs, Well I Google A 1005 and it is classified as travel tripod, meaning light weight. Aluminium construction at 1.45kg. folds to a short length. Most important spec. is max. loaded weight and A1005 is 4 kg. Now assuming using an A7iii at 650g including battery and 200 + 650 g...

    Digicabi dry cabinet

    Hi, nikon_ray thanks for for expert help but I think that since it was working with the original resistor values unless the resistance has changed over time which I doubt but you never know with electronic components. As the resistance is in the optocoupler circuit which simply connects the high...

    Digicabi dry cabinet

    Hi nikon_ray, thanks for your electronic analysis. I'm a electronics hobbyist so my reasoning is simply whether it works or not. As to how it controls humidity in the actual scientific process is not important concerning the control dial. You are right about the power supply the the voltage of...

    Digicabi dry cabinet

    Hi, Your shorted device is not a MOSFET but a bipolar transistor npn type Japanese fully insulated device 2SC3866. You can try Sim Lim tower or order from Lazada but what I saw was lots of 10pcs.

    YN trigger can't work on my Canon

    Hi, I think your trx setting is the "problem" as you will be using it as wired/wireless control but with the appropriate cable attached to camera. Please read the printed manual or download from Yongnuo. It's very simple to use rf603c ii as dumb wireless trigger. The description of the pair of...

    More difficult to get sharp images with A7R3

    Generally mirrorless cameras give sharper photos because there is no mirror box like dSLR and with higher pixel count ( smaller pixel size ) there is less tolerance to camera shake so using higher shutter speed or higher iso helps but if you use super telephoto lens then there are other factors...
