Compact APS and FF Fixed Lens Cameras

This is a draft of an eventual roundup of fixed lens APS (or larger) sensor cameras… there are some very nice compact APS and Full Frame cameras here 🙂 The Online Photographer: Bunnell: Fujifilm X70 vs. Ricoh GRhttp://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2016/04/bunnell-fujifilm-x70-vs-ricoh-gr.htmlThe new Fujifilm X70 and its evident inspiration, the Ricoh GR II – Guest post written and illustrated by Ned Bunnell I was intrigued when Fujifilm announced the X70 in January. The press release touted it as a premium fixed-lens… Fuji X100 .

Lenovo X230 Memory Upgrade to 16GB [HOWTO] [VIDEO]

[Scroll to the bottom for a quick video of the upgrade process!] The Lenovo X230 (and its predecessor the X220) are absurdly easy to upgrade. Here is the X230 memory upgrade process: Power off laptop (fully OFF, not hibernate) Remove battery Remove two screws from memory access panel Remove existing RAM by releasing retention clips Securely install new upgrade RAM Replace cover & screws Replace battery and power ON! For the upgrade, I chose Crucial’s excellent 16GB DDR3 RAM kit

Dell Latitude E7450 1080p IPS

The Dell Latitude E7450 is a capable 14″ Windows laptop. Heavier than an ultrabook, less capable than heavier workstations… it strikes a fairly good balance between portability and performance. My favorite feature is the E-Dock compatibility, allowing for easy multi-monitor use when docked at a desk. The laptop’s keyboard backlight is also very handy when working at night 🙂 Least favorite aspects are limited battery life and only decent keyboard/trackpad/trackpoint. I find that I prefer my classic X220 for typing

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11IBY 11.6” Laptop Intel Atom 32GB eMMC Red

The Lenovo IdeaPad 100s is a reasonably priced lightweight Windows laptop. Unfortunately, limited storage and poor display viewing angles prevent it from being a machine I would use on a daily basis. Specifications: Intel Atom processor Z3735F 2GB DDR3L / 32GB eMMC flash memory 11.6″ LED backlight / Intel HD Graphics Built-in Webcam / WLAN 802.11n / HDMI /USB 2.0 / Headphone / Microphone Windows 10 

EnGenius ECB350 Power Supply Voltage and Amperage [SOLVED]

The EnGenius Technology ECB350 is a very nice access point/bridge that can utilize either a “wall wart” power supply or a 802.3af POE connection for power. Recently I misplaced one of the wall wart power supplies and needed to find/replace it with an approriate model. As such, here are the power supply requirements for the ECB350: Active Ethernet (Power-over-Ethernet, IEEE 802.3af) 48VDC/0.375A -or- Wall Plug In Power Supply: 12V/1A TIP: If you need a replacement power supply, Amazon has them. 🙂 I hope

Dell XPS 13 vs E5450

Dell makes some of the best bang for the buck laptops, especially if you buy refurbished or used. Whereas a 2013 Apple laptop will still be very highly priced for the specs, Dell laptops depreciate rapidly. Thus, for $400-$800 you can get a very nice Dell. Likewise, Dell maintenance and upgradeability is also very good. SSD, RAM and WiFi upgrades are generally a piece of cake. I understand that Apple makes a premium product and that they have very high
