    Fuji New to X10

    With respect, you have referenced 3 other cameras/systems in your replies but not the Fuji X10 so it is not clear to me that you are considering the EXR mode at all.

    Fuji New to X10

    Another vote for 6MP EXR mode - best for dynamic range.

    Looks more Mediterranean than East End, very well done! You probably know this blog but it is worth publicising here since there is a lot of photography in in it:

    My assumption has been: "The sky is big, so you need a wide-angle lens, right?" But maybe

    Regarding your assumption, see here: for a clear exposition.

    News Apple security update released.

    There are two things conflated here. So far as I know there is no Security Update for Lion 10.7.2 but there is an update to 10.7.3 which is what is discussed in the forum referenced above and some people are having problems with. I have installed it with no problems. There may be a Security...

    Micro 4/3 SUPER basic GF3 question

    I think it only does NOT appear in Auto mode – eg menus are expanded in Aperture priority and so on, at least that is how it works in G1 and GF2.

    Why is this Farmer growing Sunflowers?

    Hi Barrie I have just re-read my post and see that I mistyped the last sentence so it come across as sarcastic about the "agri-environment scheme" which was not my intention! I always enjoy your posts. I have seen a lot of very small game cover plots [as well as big ones obviously] and I am not...

    The pace of modern agriculture

    :eek:"No room for over wintering stubbles these days". I hear the economics are changing and that spring wheat may be gaining an advantage over winter cereal. Certainly I saw quite a bit of stubble last winter here in North Yorkshire -- there was none in previous years. Good news for those of us...

    Why is this Farmer growing Sunflowers?

    If it is just a corner of field and those are short sunflowers with a mixture of other seed plants and maybe some brassicas then it is a game cover for pheasants surely? You call it "an agri-environment scheme" with "winter feed for birds" though ;)

    Ever see an article or thread on Serious Compacts that you would like to print?

    Yes, it prints [best to change background to white via the AA symbol at upper left in Readability] but there will be a lot of pages per web page as far as i can see. Do you actually want to print paper copy or just save to read again? [For saving to your computer I would use Evernote though...

    Ever see an article or thread on Serious Compacts that you would like to print?

    Readability will show one page at a time with images. Safari on Mac tested here with a Challenge thread but the platform should not make any difference. You can adjust the display to some extent and show/hide images. A Web & Mobile App for Reading Comfortably: Readability I'm sure the experts...

    Apple iPhoto and my first Mac woe - HELP!

    I am sure Deidre means dragging from the open iPhoto application. From your post it sounds as though you are trying to access the iPhoto library from outside of the iPhoto application -- NEVER do that or you risk corrupting the library. You can export individual photos [Menu File/Export] or by...

    WOW... Not something you see everyday....

    Magnificent birds but I have one that kills in my garden regularly and she thinks nothing of eating collared doves alive while I am only a few feet away. She also carried off one of my bantams some years ago but the little hen escaped and made her way home!

    Cheap way to get original replacement/spare battery for XZ-1

    These don't seem to be listed on their web site -- possibly a new line. OT somewhat, but appropriate to serious compacts, I did like the PEN cartoon in their latest email newsletter:

    Feedback A question for the lucky X100 owners :)

    Just to confirm that it is the Muted Blue Theme that causes it for me -- both the others are OK. The reason I only saw it inSafari and not in Chrome and Firefox is that I was not logged in when I checked in those browsers and so the default SC theme that was set. The "not logged in" part will...

    Feedback A question for the lucky X100 owners :)

    There is nothing "wrong"with 1024 width there is just some odd conflict somewhere for some of us. Just to confuse you further [sorry!], if I reply to your message in the High ISO thread with quote and go to "advanced" then not only your images in the preview are correctly displayed but so are...

    Feedback A question for the lucky X100 owners :)

    The actual symptom of this display problem seems to be that images are sometimes constrained to 800 pixels width since if I look at the thread and scroll down, the image posted by Burkey displays correctly but is only 800 pixels wide...

    Yes, I get the same here but only with Serious Compacts in Safari [Mac OSX 10.6.7] since often the same images are posted - Micro Four Thirds News and Rumors and display normally. For example in this thread: the images...

    Passwords on the Mac

    I am not an expert and I don't know a simple answer to this, but I would say that nothing is safe but 1Password is safer! Because you don't have to remember them you can use different passwords for every web site or whatever so if you do reveal one password accidentally the others are secure...

    Passwords on the Mac

    Your question can be answered in one word - "1 Password": 1Password It does cost a little but I find it the best software I have ever bought. On the Web it works with Safari, Firefox and Chrome mostly by just choosing "sign in" via right-click on the sign-in page. Any other passwords can also...
