tfttf577 – The Speed Of Bytes

flattr this!

Rick wants to know how the speed of his SD cards might be limited by the speed of today’s USB ports, so Chris takes a look at current card speeds and compares them with what today’s USB ports can deliver. Dave has an old pre-digital lens attached to his DSLR and the exposure is THREE STOPS off. James has just bought a couple of light meters and asks Chris for his thoughts. Also Chris will briefly discuss what made him decide for the picture he used for the last episode.

    Chris the picture looks like you about to zoom down a USB cable for data transfer. The distorted perspective giving the impression of being suck down the data stream.

    I agree on Steve: This is the point of view a light meter takes while checking the light quality. ;-)

  • Dave Schuder

    Chris, i think you chose this picture at random to see what wild guesses you would get. Very nice portrait, by the way.
