    Another A1/R4 user here.  I plan to upgrade the R4 to an R5.  Not immediately, but in time for a long trip to the UK in the spring, I hope at a reduced price.

    As a land/city/seascape photographer a lot of my work is done on a tripod, especially at night and dawn, but more and more I find myself hand holding when possible so the extra 2 or so stops of stabilization (which seems to be borne out from videos I’ve seen) will be welcome.  I take a good number of shots vertically, and also at knee/shin height so the new screen is welcome (long overdue) as are focus bracketing and the 900 second timer (also long overdue).

    Strange.  I found it using google (not google play).  Vero – True Social.

    It tells me none of my devices are compatible.  Win 10 desktop, 2021 MBP and 3 different Android tabs (I don’t own a cellphone).  No matter I don’t do social media.

    Check out reviews before downloading.

    LRC 12.01 is released.  It fixes the problem where LR would not run if your catalog is on an external drive

    Simplistically I thought you were right (and I used the town and school libraries all the time).  However, rather interestingly Wikipedia has this to say;

    library catalog (or library catalogue in British English) is a register of all bibliographic items found in a library or group of libraries, such as a network of libraries at several locations. A catalog for a group of libraries is also called a union catalog.”
