Music: from CD's to MP3 or WAV ? Which software?
Posted By jpzk

I don't use iTunes/Apple.

Since I don't use iTunes, that'll have to be something else.
8 MB RAM and 1995? ... Yeah I guess you'd call that a dinosaur.

---------- Post added 04-16-21 at 09:57 PM ----------


Thanks for the info. :)
I've followed that link ... $39.00 USD for single PC installation; seems to be a great software, albeit somewhat complicated?

So, this would allow me to take a CD (original), run it through the software and save the resulting files to be played via a device (my Android phone for instance) in my car?
I've never heard of FLAC, AAC Loseless files. Do they take a lot of room?

Thanks.
It seems that this Flac or AAC lossless type of files is the way togo.
Again though: I don't use iTunes.

---------- Post added 04-16-21 at 10:01 PM ----------


Most likely via my Android phone via Bluetooth (or a direct connection via USB).
I'm not using iTunes.

Confusing now: I should have added that I will also listen to that music elsewhere than in the car.

So now we have the "lossless" and MP3 camps! :confused:
And no, I sure don't have that sort of high end stereo system in an anechoic chamber.

Music: from CD's to MP3 or WAV ? Which software?

Hi everyone!

I need a FREE (or very low cost) CD "ripper" software which can convert CD music to either MP3 or WAV files.
I am told that WAV files are better but bigger?

I have so many CD's (too many in fact) and I want to convert most of them so I can listen to my music in my car (no CD player in there .... seems like it's old technology nowadays :()
I want that "converted" music to be just as good as the original on the CD's.
Note: those CD's are all originals.

There are some free ones out there and the one I was interested in has a 16MB RAM requirement; my laptop has only 8MB of RAM.

I have never used such software either and I have no idea how it works, how it saves the files and where it saves them.

Any suggestions ? ;)

Edit: I don't use iTunes/Apple stuff.
Edit: My bad ... system has 8GB of RAM and NOT 8MB !

AF-C of K-3III is impressive
Posted By jpzk
Replies: 163

I agree with that being a difficult situation, even for any type of camera. Again, I am hoping for at least some improvement under those conditions.
If the AF.C can follow the subject, even under low contrast, I'll be happy!

Through branches: also a difficult situation. Often enough I have to use "CIF" (catch-in-focus) which works great, as long as I remember to do it!!;)

---------- Post added 04-14-21 at 11:31 AM ----------



Yes, apart from the hopefully improved AF, "high" ISO shots on a K3 are noisy/grainy compared with my old K5.
So, if that K3III can match or better your KP in that department, I'll be happy.

I am still hopeful that this new AF module on the K3III will solve some (at least) of the problems with this type of situation. Quite frustrating to see something unusual and not be able to take a good shot at it.
Or, one can realize good focus on the subject, ending up with tons of noise/grain as a result of very high ISO numbers.

So .... this thread started with a great title: " AF-C of K3III is impressive".

What really interests me is: how impressive will it be, using a DA*300/4, for BIF and a mix of BIF/low light conditions ?
I know it'll have to wait until the camera becomes available to more users here before we can actually see how "impressive" the AF-C will be (wishful thinking?).

Example: on a hiking tour in the deep forest/bush, you see a very small and well camouflaged Brow Creeper against the tree bark. That small bird moves quite fast while searching for foodstuff. Often times, using the K3, the numbers (camera is set for TAv) go up to ISO3200 to ISO 4000 at 1/1000s !! Of course, there is a lot of resulting grain and at the same time, the camera has a heck of a time to AF on that bird, even in AF-S.
I'm including a sample shot here.
This was shot in AF.S, BTW.

((Mod's: delete the picture if you feel that it has "no business" to be here on this thread))

As far as "warranty" is concerned: if a card is going to fail and it's loaded full of "one in a lifetime" shots .... what good is it anyway?
Sandisk cards have been my choice for several years and I presume that they are just as good as the ones you mention here.
