On Delkin introduces new 'Black' range of rugged SD cards article (54 comments in total)

Why a '" guaranteed replacement in 48 hours in the event a card fails " what happens after hour 49? seems too short of a plan.

munro harrap: So what if they are posed? Can YOU get a caterpillar to pose, or an insect to fly carrying an umbrella? Are they not more interesting than the majority of posed people pics posted online? Of course they are. Because at least they are carefully and imaginatively done!! Were that wedding photos were such fun.
I want to know HOW, but he might not tell you- after all his work is worth money now, so would you?
Years, years ago, when I was still at college I worked a week in a Chelsea still photographers studio, in the days of large format film, before computers and software for photos existed to have us jump to possibly wrong conclusions.

He showed me some commercial work, one showed a party in four around a table , enjoying a certain beverage. But they were INSIDE a glass of said beverage. It was completely convincing, you felt like cheering!

As a hardened reportage photographer I am still thrilled- here too, you cynics

Agreed.

chooflaki: If he was shot it must have been from behind. Being shot by a high powered rifle will cause the victim to fall in the direction to where the shot was coming from. IMO I believe the photo is genuine.

I agree, its real just because its a grab shot taken at a time when he could not stand & was hoping to get something.at a fatal explosion once I had to set my wide angle lens & camera on auto( yes ! gasp, horror), with the camera hanging from my neck to get a shot(s) because a group of firemen did not want photos taken, once I got back to the paper & out of the darkroom I found a few shots that were usable. side note I friend in California. caught a glimpse of me on CNN. the armchair photographers can call the shot as they wish but luck does factor in in more than you think.

On Adobe releases subscription-only Photoshop CC article (398 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artistico: I will go against the general consensus and say that I think the subscription model might even reduce the number of pirated versions in use as it makes the initial cost of starting out using Adobe products so much more affordable when you spread the cost over time. I'm not saying it necessarily is cheaper in the long run, but it's more convenient for many, myself included.

Also, a lot of the people commenting don't seem to know anything about what the Creative Cloud is, how much it costs, and nor do they realise if and to what extent it affects them. They just seem to be against it on principle without even having defined the principle to start with. Please read up on it and understand what it is all about before commenting (as if that is ever going to happen).

I agree with Rob, they could print hard copy disks on demand & ship when ordered, i.e. print about 1,000 copies to lessen warehousing, then when that supply reaches,say,250 copies left, print to replenish the 1,000 its about choice.

Adobe should prorate for outages, will they be forgiving if for whatever reason your payment is late?

Wait until the first CC outage occurs at a critical time when you need it, it may last 30min.,3hrs or longer, it will not happen often, but will they refund your money on a prorated basis for your loss of productivity time? nope.

In reply to:

Greg Henry: CS6 was my last "purchase" from Adobe (and they didn't even offer me a DVD - it was download only). It will be my last, so I'll just keep using it until one day when the Windows OS advances to the point where It won't work any longer.

I have no doubt that a subscription service works for SOME people, and for those - "hurrah". But it doesn't work for everyone, and that's why for customers who you supposedly appreciate, you offer CHOICES - and Adobe has decided to no longer appreciate a percentage of their customer base by no longer offering those choices.

Call me old school - I like to buy something and hold it. Then buy it later when I choose to upgrade. Adobe no longer wants people like me, or my money, and that's fine - Corel has already said they DO want us, so I'll be doing future business with them: http://www.corel.com/corel/pages/index.jsp?pgid=14900014

Agreed.

BurkPhoto: There's a reason they call her the chief Yahoo. Sometimes one can be TOO decisive and kill the goose that lays the golden egg.

The concept of pro photographer is changing, however, as photography has been democratized by the Internet, digital cameras, sharing sites, and smart phones. It's not the profession with significant barriers to entry that it once was.

....."kill the goose that lays the golden egg." Are you PAYing attention Adobe?

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)
In reply to:

markb3699: Hendrickson's responses are typically incomplete and corporate sounding from a corporate hack. Saying that they anticipated the negative response from the hobbyist community is patronizing to say the least. A lot of professionals are upset too. Me for one. Charging $240 per year (after the $120 first year) is highway robbery considering I've upgraded every other version in the last 15 years and probably spent $1,200 during that time. Now I'm expected to pay more than triple that amount over the same time span? I won't pay it even though I can afford it just on principle.

My delayed comment on the the company.......hahahahaha to the 3rd power.

In reply to:

AngusCNH: Actually, I seldom use Photoshop , except some photo need to did some post-production like liquifying… or some action which DPP cannot do… for me , I did use PS 1-2 time per month (in short time...)..... It does not worth me to pay the CS Cloud version monthly...... maybe i keep using DPP, also my old CS4 is doing nice job for me already.....

Although a raw photo are not as good as a photo which had been PSed… I like the original photo more ....... Cloud version is good for the person which always bought new version of CS , but for me..... it's just a tools like a camera body......

I will still keep in use my CS4 , if anythings effect my CS4 made me cannot use it , i prefer to give-up CS and choose other photo editing programme....

Agreed.

In reply to:

CSS49: Adobe is expecting a 15% growth rate per year from this model? They are already alienating a portion of their current clientèle. New users would surely look for alternatives rather than sign up for this scheme. The only reason I can see going to this is if you are a business already heavily invested in Adobe. They may have convinced some investors this model will work, but they've got their heads in the cloud if they expect such growth.
http://www.cnbc.com/id/100564321

what happens if you lose your internet connection or their cloud system goes down at a critical moment when you need it, like another super storm Sandy. this is corporate BS. I'll use/switch to Corel.....remember the "New Coke" debacle? when they tried the new formula which failed big time, the cola company forgot about the people who actually built it...their customers.

In reply to:

paulbysea: Fine if you live somewhere with a good internet connection. At home I would consider cloud based services, I have a reliable 60mb connection. When I am at a friends house in the English countryside, where the interconnection is very slow about 1.5mb download and 100k upload, it would not be a viable way to work due to time taken to upload an image. Adobe how will you support CS users with slow internet connections?

Agreed, can you guys at Coral step in now??

On Just Posted: Canon EOS 6D In-depth Review article (530 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sad Joe: So not only has Canon ensured they 'gave' us the minimum spec apart from a few headliners they also included a duff video performance as well. I disliked this camera from the off and the debate got quite heated a while back when I suggested that the 6D would be regarded as a poor camera by history and a huge mistake made by Canon - so I have avoided adding any new comments until this full review. I now regard the 6D as a VERY poor camera and whist no camera is perfect the Nikon D600 would appear to be the camera of choice for those new or changing over and wishing to go FF without massive spend.Unless you HAVE to go FF for lowest cost and HAVE to stick with Canon the 6D IS ONE TO AVOID. The EOS- M and its rubbish AF system further confirm my views (as a long time Canon user) CANON YOU HAVE LOST THE PLOT and the 6D / EOS-M are two more nails in your coffin. Number one brand ? Not for much longer....

I mentioned something like this would happen a few years ago, that news organizations would like to have any photo/video available of a fast breaking event than not have one and most did not believe it, citeing the virtues of have a trained photographer, dslrs , against grainy photos etc.
