Return to Film Photography

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 07:49:39 +0000

Going through my photo albums it appears that my last roll of film was shot sometime in 1999, and after almost 20 years I have decided to shoot some film again. Why? Firstly for fun, and secondly to challenge myself a bit.  With digital we have too many second chances; we shoot, review – not good, […]



Boot key combinations for Mac

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 09:38:36 +0000

There is a number of actions you are able to take by holding a key or a key combination during the start up of the Mac computer running macOS or OS X. Press and hold the keys immediately after pressing the power button on your mac or after your Mac restarts until the required function takes […]



Unable to sync Microsoft account

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:37:28 +0000

I had this strange problem in that my laptop with Windows 10 Home was unable to sync with my Microsoft account no matter what I tried. The Settings screen under  Accounts / Sync your settings had the message “Some settings are managed by your organisation” in red, right on top of it. Now, I’m not on any […]



Sony A7 II – using MF assist with the lens adapters

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:54:12 +0000

Sony Alpha and NEX cameras have two very nice features that make manual focusing a pretty effortless exercise. The first one is focus peeking, where the areas in focus are highlighted in a selected colour, and the other one is manual focus assist (MF assist). The way MF assist works is that when the camera […]



Using Sony SEL1018 lens on the full-frame Sony A7

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 07:36:34 +0000

Sony SEL1018 F/4 10-18mm Wide-Angle Zoom Lens was made for the E-mount APS-C range of cameras, e.g. NEX-6,  Alpha 6000 (A6000) etc. Normally, using this type of a lens on the full frame cameras, such as A7, would cause a very heavy vignetting where the image, unless seriously cropped, would be pretty much useless. Here is an example of […]



Sony A7 II – first impressions

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:42:20 +0000

After admiring my Sony NEX-6 and its replacement Sony A6000 for some time, I have finally given in and bought the Sony A7 II last week. I didn’t have much of a chance to use the camera during the week but this weekend I gave it a bit of a run for its money. There are […]



DVD stuck in MacBook Pro

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 05:50:08 +0000

This article was originally written in 2006, but the solution below still (in 2017) applies to Mac computers with optical drive. Earlier this evening I inserted a blank DVD into my MacBook Pro wanting to burn some files. However, OS X never recognised the disc, nothing on the desktop, nothing in the Finder, not even […]



Wacom tablet driver issue

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 11:07:09 +0000

I bought the Wacom Intuos Manga  – Creative Pen & Touch tablet the other day and had quite some fun learning how to use it when editing my photos. However, last week I had to do a complete wipe and reinstall OS on my Mac and couldn’t get the tablet to work no matter what […]



Mouse scrolling too fast

Wed, 27 Apr 2011 11:42:28 +0000

The best thing about Microsoft are their mice (mouses), I love them. The tracking acceleration seems so natural while Apple’s is rubbish, for me at least. That’s why I use the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500. Cheap as chips and works perfectly in every way … but one. Scrolling is way too fast. No matter […]



Show Desktop on Mac

Sun, 07 Mar 2010 13:05:33 +0000

One of the very frustrating things in Mac OS X is that you cannot click a button and show Desktop. Well, you can … sort of. You have three options: Press F11, this will engage expose and move all windows to the edge of your screen, Click anywhere on your desktop while holding Cmnd-Option on […]
