Wireless Air Integration-Have they Gotten Better

01 April 2007 - 05:07 AM

I checked in with the U/W photo community on this one about a year ago, and I wanted to get an update. If you have been using some sort of wireless interface with your dive computer, please share your experiences. Is the interface blinking out when you use your camera? Are you having to fuss with it a lot on your trips or is it a seamless addition to your kit? What brand/model are you using? Are there models that still don't work well? Give me your opinions. I had a second set of gear stolen going to Cayman last October so I am getting to reequip once again.

Thanks,
Mike

Transferring data with Setup Assistant / Migration Assistant

05 December 2006 - 08:39 AM

I took the plunge on a couple of Mac Book Pro's for my honey and I and we are about to set them up. Apple has a Setup Assistant/Migration Assistant that is pretty cool in that it peels all your data from your old apple product and writes it to you new one. I used it on my last conversion/upgrade, but I got to thinking/wondering...is there a downside to using this "automatic" setup funciton. Am I sucking bad junk off the old and automatically hamstringing the new computer with it? If anyone has insight into the pros and cons of using this crutch, please share. I don't want to make a silly mistake just because I am lazy.

Thanks,

Do the new Apple Laptops Cut It?

11 November 2006 - 11:54 AM

I currently use a Powerbook G4 and have a Nikon D2x. When I shoot NEF files and try to manipulate them with the G4, it is a slow aruduous grind. Recently I began to do some semi commercial work and I am dying a slow death running the files on this laptop. Question is though, for running batch conversions with either Nikon View or Photoshop, will the new PowerMac laptops offer enough speed enhancement or am I going to have to go to a desktop? Please share your experiences.

Thanks,
Mike
