yabokkie: for video, Canon intentionally slowed down the AF speed for smoother, more "natural" focus.

The A77 has a menu option to set the AF speed to slow. This supposedly reduces any hunting and helps with critical focus. I haven't tried the setting for stills or video, but perhaps it would help the A77 beat up even more on the new Canon :-)

And yet, Canon is going to make a killing on 70D, and Sony is quietly bailing out on their SLT line.

If I worked for Canon or invested in Canon then that would be impressive. However, I am a consumer and prefer the better product :-)

kadardr: WE tend to forget that there is a sony nex 7 which is a much better camera ( with the new lenses it IS fact). A bit stealthy though. Pretty against 'profi"??

Only in AF performance.

Couldn't you just pick up your subscription at a later date when you get some cash? Really, if I lost my job I would be spending my time looking for a new one rather than playing on PS.

CarlosNunezUSA: A very nice article by Corel . I think they are the best alternative to Adobe and have really strong products. The problem is that they have no Mac Version which is a pity. I would encourage you to leave a message on their page requesting an OsX version. They cannot do that in 2 days, but I guess my CS6 version can hold until Corel is ready, if they make the commitment. Now would be a good time for Corel CEO to put on the big pants and challenge Adobe with an annoucement.

lol, I am no shill. I just believe in free markets. Let them change their pricing model and if it fails they will be forced to change again or go out of business.

You fail to grasp the point. But a sincere good luck with your new endeavor.

howard you sound just like the CEO of Adobe; the same arrogance and concern for your self interest. Believe me, most of your customers only sign that agreement because they have no other choice - just like Adobe is doing to everyone. :-)

Adobe won't call you to take back your processed images (in TIFF, JPEG, etc) either. They want to rent the tool to you and allow you to keep the output. Just like a wedding photographer. Even though your client pays you to do the work, you want to retain the rights to the actual product used to produce the output.

Geez Henry. Way to drag yourself into the gutter with the anti-American tirade. Spoken about other people it would be considered racist.

No it isn't a big difference. That's like saying that once you process an image with Adobe you can do anything you want with it. But to reprocess next month? That will cost extra. Ironic, isn't it?

Actually, many wedding photographers do not give the negatives to their customers. They charge every time at their own rates if someone wants more prints.

Diderot2: Who needs Adobe?
I've got my Photoshop. If this ever gets too outdated there will be another program. What's more, I'm not going to a cloud for anything and I'm not storing anything on a cloud -- it leaves us (photographers especially) too vulnerable.

I want some protections, some rights, some privacy, some respect!

These companies better start asking what we consumers want. They think we're slaves but they're going to find out we don't need them after all. Then they'll be singing a different tune.

By the way, Adobe ain't what it used to be! Did you see that fourth rate artwork they sent out with that last CS promotion? The one with the "hair" artwork? It was putrid!

DNG converter is your friend

Mac ... From the other arrogant price inflating company

Sony should take advantage of all of this uproar and bundle software with PS layer type functionality with its Alpha line. This would give them the push they need to capture more of the professional and enthusiast market. Just a thought, Sony :-)

frng: In small business terms:
Previously, the Adobe software was an asset
Now, it will be an expense.
This has HUGE implications for MOST creative businesses, like photog, architects, graphic designers, etc.
98% of these are small companies, who cannot afford a regular expense like this. Its a shame for Adobe as their products (esp. the suits) are reasonably well integrated products...
RIP

But you do have a choice Gary. You can choose not to buy a subscription and use something else.

Steven Brenner: Just wait, rental of cameras is next. Your camera will work for 6 months and then you will have to reauthorize its use for a fee. Either we rebel or we get %X*&#.

dino - my math was spot on. Go back and read what I wrote. The total cost for the first 3 years is $600. You will also have received during that period what would have been the next "upgrade" without paying an additional $189 upgrade cost.

It all really depends on everyone's personal situation and buying habits.
