Vegetable Police: On the negative side, I'll have to sell my house to afford it. But on the positive side, I can live in the camera ;)
Ironically, that actually does look like a toy
The amount of hostility conveyed in some of these threads is simply juvenile. Did you guys get so negative before you were photographers or because you are photographers?
Sad Joe: Well done again to Fuji for supporting ALL of their users - however I would NEVER use a new OS until its at least 6 months old and all of the massive bugs have been sorted….you have been warned !
Your loss, Win 10 is great.
Rick Knepper: So, upgrading a camera to the level of its competitors is game-changing? DPR is enamored with the tech but doesn't understand the main concern of photographers: results. So, let's all welcome Sony to the 21st Century.
munro harrap: Excuse me for saying, but now that I have watched the video, can somebody point out to Rishi that he is not at all comparing like for like, as he is using Sigma lenses on the DSLRs.
These give problems on Nikons as they focus in the opposite direction to the proper Nikon lenses!
In such poor light with a static subject you would probably prefer manual focus too, and this makes it even worse, as the Nikons do not like Sigma lenses overriding completely their directional arrows,
Plus to be objective, everyone knows that a 1D series Canon does better than the amateur grade 5D series focussing.........
"Proper" lens? Do you mean OEM lens?
rrccad: 12% increase of sales.. just goes to show .. you can bump up sales dramatically by giving away cameras.
No, what it shows is how high the margins must be when these cameras are sold at MSRP!
riveredger: Intuitively, I suspect anyone who thinks $10/month is outrageous is using a pirated copy of it now, or doesn't own it all.
Howaboutraw, what are you referencing in my comments? I agree 100% that the old versions still work. I am still using CS5, and have to convert to DNG in order to edit raws from my X30.
Sorry badscience, but you missed the point and continue to pretend I am saying something else.
EDWARD ARTISTE: While de facto standards are all well and good, this is a prime example of having only ONE "real" option ends up screwing us all.
So anyone who's waiting to get a 5d4, 1d4, t7i, nikon 9000 or whatever, you have to pay adobe for pshop to even see the files. MONTHLY. Forever. Sure, you can use canons or nikons crap software...PER IMAGE. Their apps are quite terrible, rivaling the worst in possible UI design.
Some smart guys keep talking about the cost of a starbucks, but how about the costs of non working software because your lifetime subscription ran out, or the day the prices go up and you cant do a damn thing about it.
The prices will rise, as soon as the user base hits some magic number in their marketing departments papers.
We are screwed, and only the foolish don't know it. Ill start looking at capture 1. As a community, we should all band together to kickstart or support a universal raw module with cataloging ability, so NO one gets locked out of thier camera raws ever.
sfxr, read the last sentence of the post to which I was responding. The OP clearly states that he is concerned about getting locked out of his raws.
mrbill62: Who didn't see this coming?
Happily, I am Adobe free.
Go create a post somewhere about whatever software you are using, since you are happy. I have tried other software (everything from GIMP to RawTherapee to Capture One to AcdSee) and have not found any that I believe are a better product than PS. Lightroom, on the other hand, isn't so good in my opinion.
@badscience - let me explain, since the point was lost on you. My point was that a person who could afford to buy PS at it's $600-1000 price (base vs extended), would not be crying about a $10/month price in order to get the latest version. At least, that is logical to me, since $10/month means it would take 5 years to equate to the price of buying the old stand-alone versions of PS (the base version, not extended). At this point, you will usually hear that the real reason people are upset are all of the FUD arguments. Fear - "I will lose access to my files" - completely wrong, Uncertainty - "the price might go up", Doubt - "Adobe didn't go with the cloud model to stop piracy, they did it to make profits" (this one might be true, actually).
SFXR - can you elaborate? You do know that you can always access your own files with other software of your choice at sometime in the future, right? You do realize that your RAW files will continue to be viewable if you stop paying for your subscription, right? So please explain how you will be "locked out of your raws."
Pictus: Simple and effective solution...Works like the normal ACR!http://thepluginsite.com/products/metaraw/
ahhh, a Mac user who complains about a cloud based paradigm. How ironic!
Edgar_in_Indy: It sounds like the article would be more accurate if it said that Adobe is intentionally crippling ACR so that new releases will no longer work with CS6, in hopes of forcing satisfied CS6 users into an upgrade they would otherwise not buy.
Every single version of Photoshop was eventually cut off from ACR upgrades, folks. I still use CS5 - and in order to use a newer camera I have to use DNG converter in order to work with a raw file. I am glad Adobe continues to make ACR converter free and continually updates it so that my software will always be useful.
IF you were really happy, why would you bother posting on a thread like this?
Read my comment. Folks like you are upset about the sales model itself, not necessarily the price point.
Kicking should read "locking"
No one is kicking you out of your RAWs. The misinformation around here is scary.
