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 cameras (and NEX as well) 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 MF assist. The way MF assist works is that when the camera is […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

This article was originally written in 2006, but the solution below still (in 2015) 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 […]

If you miss the beautiful colour icons in the Finder sidebar, it’s time to get them back.
