If copying - moving data increases the risk of errors. Why have an Incoming folder that files are then moved out of - another error step? How are the files moved & verified? I'm missing the steps, stage(s). I've looked on the site & have the book.

3  DAM Stuff / Loss and Recovery / DNG Verification on: February 10, 2012, 09:01:26 AM
Found a link through the corrupt images threads to the Best Practice web site. There it was explained how to do a DNG Verification. Great. Couple of questions:
1- Does the size of the jpeg preview make a difference? None to full size?
2- If tiff or jpegs were converted to dng would it work on them? Is that a reason to convert them on archiving?

5  Software Discussions / RAW File Converters / Canon DPP to Lightroom on: November 07, 2011, 08:54:16 AM
I'm trying to use Canon DPP on my laptop then import to Lightroom when I get home. (DPP works better on a low spec'd laptop). Anyone had any success with this? I've tried contacting Canon, but they say they don't support Lightroom. My changes do not seem to travel with the files. Is there another stage? LR has an update DNG when moving DNG's between programs. I don't think DPP supports DNG.

Thanks, I'll try the seperate meter route.
7  General / General Discussion / Canon PowerShot G10 DNG Profile issues on: June 07, 2011, 06:54:05 AM
The only way I can get my color checker (by X-rite) not to blink over-exposure is to shoot at -2/3 exposure compensation. My EOS 450D was fine.
(PowerShot is a digic 4 processor, so should be better?) Should I be shooting ALL exposures at this? My acutal RAW files seem fine in LR.

I think I've sorted it. It was to do with preference and permission settings within the HDD and folders
9  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Backing up LR with SyncBack on: May 14, 2011, 07:01:31 AM
I'm using Win 7 32bit. Recently I've created a setting that is not allowing SyncBack to back up my LR (3) catalogue. Any suggestions what or where the setting is? I'm the only user, no passwords, so I I'm the administrator.

Not what I needed. Don't actually know what it does? Missing the profile reader, as I've started making profiles with a ColorMunki and would like to compare with internet canned profiles. I know - look at the print, if I can't see a difference, there probably isn't one!

Thanks for the prompt response. i'll check tonight. I'm looking for a 3D wire frame Gamut style map.

12  General / General Discussion / Microsoft Color Control Panel Applet for Win XP on: February 21, 2011, 04:34:26 AM
I've upgraded to Windows 7, and can't get he above applet to load - it needs a NET file to load first and it won't. Does anyone know either, how to get it to work or a similar product for Windows 7?
It reads and compares profiles, roughly, so I can compare a papers' profile with my monitor or Adobe 1998.

13  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Re: LR3 cat size on: January 07, 2011, 08:04:05 AM
off topic, but related to backups. I've just spent several nights trawling my Ghost mirrors for the presets I'd collected and created. Mainly printing. They are not backed up routinely, and I missed them off my back up routine. Stupidly(!) I thought they were in the lrcat. file. A back up is only as good as its restore function. check it.

14  General / General Discussion / HDR shooting best alternative? on: January 07, 2011, 05:54:34 AM
I use a Canon EOS 450D. This allows either mirror lock up OR bracketed exposures. I'd like both!
At 3 frames a second in exposure beacketing mode, will the mirror be bbouncing all over the place? Or does it stay up for the three exposures? (I think not).
In mirror lock up mode the time between exposures means the tide has probably come in and gone out again, or the clouds have disappeared, or the leaves have changed colo(u)r with the season change. Maybe not that slow, but you see what I mean.
Anyone ideas on which is the better solution?

15  DAM Stuff / Hardware Discussions / R2400 move - length of USB cable on: January 07, 2011, 05:49:16 AM
I'd liike to move my R2400 (Epson). I'm running Win 7, which doesn't like firewire. Is there a Wi-fi adaptor or how long can a USB cable safely go without losing data strength? I'm talking about 6m (20ft)
I'Ve seen on the internet USB extenision cables that contain a "booster".
