Re: Transferring photos via camera better than directly from CF card?

@skidoo: meaning, e.g., that photo software would get, for example, additional information from the camera itself which is not stored in the files on the CF card. Either method yields an identical result. There's no "additional information" to be had ~~ the metadata is contained within the...

Re: Transferring photos via camera better than directly from CF card?

@chrispop99: (...) If, for example the CF card should be inserted with the label facing you, and you inadvertently insert it with the label facing away from you, there is a risk that the card pins will get bent. It may also damage the reader, which is probably less important. Thanks, now I get what ...

Re: Transferring photos via camera better than directly from CF card?

@chrispop99: The only thing against a card reader for CF is that all the ones I have seen let you put the card in upside down. If you do so, it may bend the pins, rendering the card scrap. For that reason, I use a cable for the one camera I have that uses CF, and a card reader for the ones that use ...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The palemoon thread

@Stevo: What about Ublock Origin? That's a great ad-blocker. I like it, and I have been testing it successfully with Firefox, but as far as I remember it is not the officially endorsed Pale Moon ad blocker, and I'd suppose that there might be a reason for that (cf. https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/...

[SOLVED] Transferring photos via camera better than directly from CF card?

@all: I have an old first generation Canon Digital IXUS here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_Digital_IXUS#IXUS.2FELPH.2FIXY_cameras_using_CF_storage). While this camera is by far outdated as far as its technical specifications are concerned, it has proven to be robust and reliable, and it produ...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The palemoon thread

@all: Just did some experiments using Pale Moon 27.6.2 (64-bit) on MX-16.1. I installed ABPrime (http://addons.palemoon.org/addon/abprime/) as the one and only ad blocker, but it doesn't really seem to filter out much , if anything at all. I got the impression that ABPrime is the most favored ad blo...
