    Replacing laptop with a desktop. Recommendations please - now getting quotes for the spec

    This has probably been covered before but, in order, what are the components of a PC that are best for Photo editing.

    Non UK Hello from NZ.

    Yes North Auckland would be a bit of trek from there. Quite remote in that part. I guess Hamilton is the closest big city

    Nikon D500 & SB700 Godox trigger

    Is there much difference between the x1t-n and the x2t-n apart from price. What does the 2 do that the 1 doesn’t? is the XproN the bit that sits on the camera and the X1T and X2T for the flash unit?

    Making camera easily accessible on quick release clip

    Lobster Boat HDR

    that sort of goes along the same lines as how do you know that the image is HDR in the first place. Or how do you know that an image is SOOC or edited. Unless its over processed then you pretty much only have the word of the photographer / editor and more often that not they won't tell you as...

    Lobster Boat HDR

    The only real HDR I tend to dislike is when people take a single photo make a couple of copies adjust the copies up and down the ev range then create HDR from that.
