Nikon issue official D600 statement

After China banned the sale of Nikon D600′s Nikon released the following statement on the 28th of March 2014

“With regard to the issue with which multiple granular dust spots are reflected in images captured with the D600 digital SLR camera, Nikon sincerely apologizes for any concern and inconvenience suffered by D600 users, retailers, and all concerned.

Because Nikon takes this matter very seriously, we will continue to offer users of the D600 a special service with which cameras are inspected, cleaned, and if necessary, shutter and related parts are replaced free of charge, even after the product warranty has expired. However, if a number of multiple granular dust spots are still noticeable in images captured with a D600 upon which the above service has been performed several times, Nikon will replace it with a new D600 or an equivalent model.”

Fix for Lightroom 5 and Aperture under OSX 10.9 Mavericks

If you are experiencing difficulties with Lightroom 5 not opening and Aperture not exporting images on OSX 10.9 here’s the fix if you have your Catalogs and Projects on external drives. Because of the new security measures / protocols you need to ensure that your external drives have read and write permissions for all users. After a lengthy discussion with a tech genius friend of mine this was the solution he offered and everything is fine now. Go to it. Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 6.17.45 pm

OSX 10.9 …. a Lightroom killer?

This news won’t be new. But Mavericks has shot holes in Adobe Lightroom 5 and Apple Aperture. Both were initially working for me after the update but recently things have gone astray. Lightroom 5 is dead. Booting up the application just launches the splash screen and then its just dead calm. Aperture boots, reads the libraries and allows external editing, but cannot export images; just the eternal wheel of death and today folders began graying out. Likewise Snapseed can’t export to the iPhoto library and can’t ‘save as’. The forums are alive with the sounds of disgruntled users. Today I had to resort to importing images from phone and card into iPhoto, exporting to the desktop and editing in Photoshop. I hope Santa has a fix by Xmas.
