On the fusion drive, you cannot specify which data is kept on the SSD and which is migrated off to the spinning disk. This is up to the OS to do. However, you can pretty safely assume that your Lightroom catalog is going to be on the SSD along with the OS parts you use regularly.


How much SSD should be in the specs. For my 2012 Mac mini (last quad-core) , it's 128 GB. I really like it.

Thanks! What I call the REEF book is "Nudibranch & Sea Slug Identification - Indo-Pacific"  (I don't have it with me right now).

In Topic: Will TTL still work with 1/64 Built In Strobe?

17 November 2016 - 12:05 PM

I've got more or less the same setup (E-PL5, Z-240, D-2000). There are two possible options for you on the Inon strobes. Well, three:


0) Shoot manual

1) Use the E-TTL in which the strobe itself does the exposure. I've never tried this

2) See if, using the right setting of the magnet switch, you can boost the power of the pre-flash so that the main flash does not suck much out of the camera (this means setting the camera and strobe to TTL)


2) is incompatible with 0) which is why I don't use it.

BTW, you're not going to reduce "shutter lag" per se, but you can get the camera to fire more frequently with the 1/64th setting. However, you'd probably still end up with 2/3 of the frames dark since the external strobe won't be able to cycle as fast as the camera strobe (unless you are using very little power).
