h2k: Still wishing For a weatherproof AND stabilized mobile. The AF inconstencies here sound worrisome.

Lars and Pelasdf, thanks for your suggestions.

Bridge is SO much nicer than Lightroom. It seems, someone at Adobe just noticed this too.

On Connect post Apple iPhone 6s Plus camera review (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nick Carrigan: The file export comment is misleading as you can always email the "actual size" photos. This does not "require" iTunes. Also, you can just install the Apple Mobile Device drivers (on a Windows PC) to access the device through Windows Explorer. I believe Windows Update will install the drivers for you.

In my opinion, only 3 or 4 of the negative points mentioned are real issues. Yes, the camera app should have extended features but you can't judge the device based upon something it "should" have. Review it for what it is... not what it should be.

I also wondered if file export wouldn't go through Dropbox as well?

Of course one wouldn't want to see iTunes on one's Windows PC. Then, rather leave the snaps just in the phone.

But i do remember, when i (normally on Android devices) had to use an iPad temporarily, i was shocked at how difficult it is to actually get to your files and move them somewhere else. When i managed to (don't remember how, but through iTunes), i felt like i acted against the system and better hide.

On article Never miss a video: Subscribe to DPReview on YouTube (17 comments in total)

I prefer written content very much over videos. And once i'd leave a Youtube comment under any DPR video, i'd be in for Youtube spam mails from any hopeful self-promoter on Youtube.

Is that a news-worthy item at this stage?

Horshack: I'm for any non-destructive photo editor that is destructive to Adobe's market share.

Certainly nice wording. Good luck.

Studor13: Wonder when they will fix the bug that stops you from printing anything bigger than A4 on an Epson 3880.

Yes, I know I can get around it by printing via Photoshop but I really shouldn't have to.

"Unless Scott Kelby is lecturing and printing "superlarge" with the printer connect to a network, maybe you should just be quiet. "

Studor, I will shut my trap, hope you're pleased.

Raist3d: I love how several people seem to know better about this domain of photography than Reuters along with their reasons ;-)

Whatever the topic, many on here "seem to know better".

Me too, i'm just not that much the bragging type.

wa2n: Is video play in Library mode working for anyone else? The play button strip is gone in mine. Win10/Nvidia.

This discussion here is very awkward for Adobe. I wonder if they feel the same.

Scott Kelby uses that printer to lecture on the printing module, printing of course superlarge, in his LR6 book.

I guess he didn't run into hard problems printing.

Interesting to hear. I have the same, reproducably. I thought it was a problem of my oldish graphics card, but perhaps its not.

In reply to:

D200_4me: Despite all the crying and whining online, somehow I managed to figure out how to use the 6.2 interface and it was still a one-click "just import my dang photos" process. It worked well for me then and continues to work well for me now. No big news here. I never ran into any bugs (maybe I don't use the functions others were using?) and on my Windows 8 (now Windows 10) system, it keeps on churning out the files. Shooting raw, convert to DNG, export to jpg on PC as well as various online services. No issues.

"My, so how does it feel to crawl up Adobe's backside? You must be pretty far up in there by now."

What language, what thinking.

amd: Where I am coming from, this would be considered a PR disaster. An announcement without _anything_ substantial apart from the product name, and that it will be oh so great is a complete nogo that would never ever pass legal or the PR council...
Not pro or con Nikon here, but this sounds truly desperate!

... but then again I'm not working in the consumer industry ;-)

I also don't work in the consumer industry, but i had just the thoughts you anticipate up there.

(Well, maybe i'm a consumer.)

In reply to:

Pandimonium: When I read the cons list and see a 90% score, which should really be platinum and not gold or you need to demote some camera's, I think that Handling and Ergonomics should get a higher weight. This is an area where camera's can still discern themselves, since it is not about pumping up the tech specs.

After reading all the cons in list and regular text, the high final rating also surprised me.

I thought it would have been nice to start comments afresh, not to re-heat the old ones.

Douglas Boyd: Congratulations to the dpreview staff and Rishi for this excellent review. This is the best ever of this site, and covers many complex technical points against a background of noise from "internet experts". Well done.
==Doug

Agreed that there was oodles of profound information, and (having read nothing else) the Conclusion was smoothly worded.

The original rumour is so dubiously founded (tone of e-mail, recipient) that i thought one should simply wait and see, not start speculating.
