tfttf577 – The Speed Of Bytes

posted in: Tips from the Top Floor | 5

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.

  • Steve Cooper

    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.

  • oli

    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.
