It's been awhile since I've posted anything from Mr. Hogan.  However, I'd be interested in some of the very tech-savy folks around here have to say:

Rather interesting.


I'm a windows user, and I have been 64 bit for a while now, before win10. No, real issues. some old programs have died, but I replaced/removed them. LR 6 is 64 bit, the standalone. I can open my older JEPG's. I can even run some 32bit software that is still living.


When windows "wall" came, it did have issues, but not like the ones mentioned here.

Thanks, Dennis.

I didn't realise that Apple was so far behind... my PCs have been 64bit since Win7. Not a problem.. antique 32bit software can also be used in most cases.

I've been recording in 64 bit audio for years, and I really can't tell the difference. I only use it because it's supposed to be better. It's all about memory processing power, 64 bit lets you keep your latency down after laying down multiple tracks.

Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.
