no good for the sony a7r's then, you'd have to change the battery half way through an exposure

dcshooter: As if the Leica brand hadn't been dragged through the mud already...

Seriously, having had the displeasure to use Huawei phones, I can state confidently that they are hot garbage. That plus the baggage of their deep ties to the PLA, and their well-known sordid history of industrial spying, and I can see no reason why any Western company would want to get in bed with them (aside, I suppose, from the 1.4 billion reasons living in China).

I guess it just goes to show that the so-called Leica technology advantages really are merely smoke if they're so willing to hand the keys to the kingdom to known criminals.

and, of course, western companies are so clean cut and above board in their dealings.

not entirely sure how most of those are a garden, but hey ho. Nice snaps if a little derivative.

borgein: And yet, Capture One Pro still lacks the following basic functionality:

1. Cannot open 16-bit grayscale tiff files.
2. Cannot open layered tiff or psd files.
3. Struggles with some zip compressed tiff files.
4. Still lacks lens correction for ALL Leica lenses except the older Summicron 50mm f/2. Also lacks lens correction for many other brands as well.
5. Still has a subpar library functionality.
6. Still clutters the image folders with subfolders and sidecar files.

These are basic usability features that should have been fixed a long time ago. I had v7 and v8, but I will not upgrade until these basic features are implemented.

i really want to use C1 , ditch LR and start using this as i know how good it is against my digital camera files. But it simply doesnt load up any TIFF files from my scanned in negatives. Until it can do that, something every other image processor ive tried handles with ease, then its no use to me at all. Come on Phase One, sort it out. It cant be that hard!

Wild Light: This is the camera that Sony, Nikon, Canon should have made. It's incredible, they've smashed it out of the park, and I want it.

and it comes with a grip to make it big enough for your family to stand under it in the rain. Is it weather proof?

In reply to:

davids8560: What bugs me is I bought the full CS6 suite shortly before CC made its debut. If they warned me everything was about to change, I sure don't remember it. They just took my $2,100. And I won't forget that.

and has CS6 suddenly stopped doing what you want it to do? Have adobe disabled it? No, stop whining then.

In reply to:

nicktinbc: I have found a bean bag far more useful than an mini-tripod. Much easier to use on irregular surfaces. And all it costs if you make it yourself is a few split peas and a bit of cloth!

does your beanbag stick to lamp posts then and support the camera?

In reply to:

EssexAsh: i'll wait for Nikon to license the sensor.

im sure my 810 will still be taking half decent shots by then though. The trouble is the lenses, bodies are ten a penny and lose value instantly. You buy into a lens system more than a body system. I cant afford to swap them out for dubious sony lenses. And who really wants adaptors in the middle of everything.
