    How to use String.Format in PowerShell?

    • 1 Comments

    Hah! (We’re back ;-) ) It’s as easy as that:

    PS > [string] :: Format( "Hello {0} {1} :-)", "Daniel", "Walzenbach")
    Hello Daniel Walzenbach :-)

    Needless to say that other formatting – like Currency formatting – works as well

    PS > [string] :: Format( "{0:C}", 1234567890)
    $1,234,567,890.00

    Check out Formatting Types on the .NET Framework Developer's Guide or SteveX Compiled - String Formatting in C# (nice cheat sheet) for more examples.

    Cheers!

    EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Upgrade 2.0.4

    • 0 Comments

    Canon ran into some audio-issues with their latest firmware update but were super quick to fix this issue :-)

    There was a phenomenon in which the manual recording settings made in C1/C2/C3 were changed and sound could not be recorded if manual sound recording was used in the C1/C2/C3 settings and the camera was subsequently turned off (or if Auto Power Off was activated). This does not occur in modes other than C1/C2/C3.

    Get the new firmware update here >> EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Update Version 2.0.4.

     

    Cheers!
