Are you reading the report or just counting the number of errata? Rather, do you even know what any of them are, or are you just fear-mongering?
I can't think of a chip that's been released in the past 20 years that didn't have a spec sheet detailing numerous errata. If all you're doing is counting the number of items Intel reports, Haswell doesn't look so bright either:https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/4th-gen-core-family-desktop-specification-update.pdfOf course, there's more to it than that, but knee-jerk reactions are so common on OCN these days that it makes...
I wouldn't think that should be the case unless you're using a tracking AF mode, but if it is, I view that as a bit of a hindrance/usability issue. Might have even been one of the reasons I moved to Nikon, it's actually been so long I wouldn't remember unless I had a Canon in-hand!
From https://photographylife.com/recommended-canon-7d-mark-ii-settingsThis seems like an odd default behavior, I haven't used Canon in a few years but I don't recall it ever being this stupidly complicated.
It's certainly challenging, because it's almost like reinventing the wheel when trying to consolidate so much data on one machine (really two or more for redundancy). Most of the off-the-shelf solutions are just average, and considerably more expensive. I can't exactly comment on the workload, but you can sort of visualize it by starting a tcpdump/Wireshark/Tshark capture and flooding traffic at line rate for hours.Enterprise equpiment is expensive, which is why it's not a...
They've been pretty good for us as virtual guest storage (where we use a SAN/Netapp for data storage and a Hadoop cluster for big data), but that's about the only positive use in our environment. I had tested them in a scenario where they would be used for capturing market data (I am in HFT), but they just don't have enough throughput to handle multiple connections at 10Gb line rate, so I ended up oversubscribed by about 80:1 worst-case. It's not plausible to deploy a SAN...
After the P3700 being more of a letdown than I would have imagined (it functions well enough in parts of our infra), the preliminary numbers on this look good. Still not totally there, but pretty good nonetheless.
I would argue that on a longer lens like the 135, IS would be useful. At least for me, would have been nice to have when I owned that lens.
Maybe not everyone wants to deal with the complexity and cost of having IS added, though.
Nobody is infallilble. My hypothesis is that someone applied a config without validation from some level of change management, which can and does happen around holidays when some personnel are on vacation. Take a look at the post-mortems from NYSE incidents (the 2015-07-08 outage is about the most widely known recent major market outage) to see that as unfortunate as mistakes are, we are all human and these kind of things happen.Percentages are essentially the only proper...
