Looks like a really interesting new technology to me - far too soon to buy the camera though.

I fear it might turn out like holography though and not be something for the mass market but it's certainly a new photographic tech that might, for example be incredibly useful for medical photography.

uuronl: As someone who buys each new version of LR, this strikes me as a decent deal, presuming it won't get much more expensive. At about $120 for a year, it's less than the cost of the new license accompanying each major revision.

What nonsense! Once you upgraded from LR4 to LR5 all the other LR5 updates are free.

That is until Adobe make LR subscription only

Bill Rees: Apparently, we still haven't moved on from the incessant whining regarding the Adobe's subscription. The haters need to move on.

Why? Who cares what you think?

Julian: Does this mean that from lightroom 6 onwards we are gonna be limited to cloud versions only? If so I will plan my migration away from lightroom.

Wake up and smell the coffee, of course it does. Only two months after the odious Adobe promised the exact opposite

bigdaddave: Barely two months after Adobe promise they won't ever have Lightroom on subscription here it is.

The sooner we can do without Adobe the better, utter scumbags

Lovely, delightful, creative. Love the one with the backpack

Extremely good tutorial thanks. LR is a fabulous program, it's a shame so many blame it when in reality they just don't know how to use it.

On Portfolio: Photography student Luke Evans article (172 comments in total)
In reply to:

Individual1: Can I just say how disheartening it is to see a site dedicated to photography respond to a portfolio with such utterly senseless commentary. Some of these are interesting photos. It might be worth taking a moment and thinking about his work, rather than offhandedly trashing it. His exploration with the Xerox is smart and creative (indeed, I had to go to his site to understand what he was doing and why it was worth a look, which is something that could have been explained here). The vitriol that has taken over this site's comments is really come to a new low. Anyone who posts an unsubstantiated comment like "junk" should post a link to their images for fair critique. What does "junk" add to understanding? For the student or the viewer? I'm not for censorship, but please, if you are just going to be rude and thoughtless, go somewhere else.

Is he a mate of yours then Barney? That would explain everything

In reply to:

InTheMist: Such poison, jealous spiteful words.

The article makes it really clear that Luke's "work has garnered a lot of attention in the past couple of years." I'm sorry that yours hasn't. Nor has mine.

Let young Luke enjoy his 15 minutes of fame.

Luke, if the critics work is better than yours, take it to heart! If not, disregard it and drive on. Have thick skin. Be prepared to promote yourself, second only advancing your skill in your chosen art form.

But why him exactly? He's not particularly talented so why him?

Seems very fishy that properly talented students don't get pushed by DP yes this one does, they've done it before.

DP has a habit of telling us what's good and expecting us just to accept it when more often than not it's average stuff at best. It makes you wonder why.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (634 comments in total)

Didn't think there'd be much reason to upgrade my compact from a G1X and it seems there isn't.

Canon should have done better with this upgrade. Once again the sensor is lagging behind the opposition

A very polished and useful program. It really does seem as though it's free, which is fantastic!

On In photos: 'Paris in the Springtime' article (67 comments in total)

Anyone worried about sharpness or dynamic range?

No, of course not because when the subject matter is so fantastic stuff like that really doesn't matter at all. Nor should it.

You have to be a special breed of person to put yourself in harm's way without much protection to get a story..and then do it again and again for years knowing the risks you are taking..

Massive respect to yet another journo who has paid the ultimate price so we can see what really goes on in the world. A very sad day.

HomoSapiensWannaBe: I couldn't watch more than a minute of it. Whoever edited it has a bad case of ADHD. They never show more than a second or two of footage before making an abrupt cut. They don't give us time to take anything in before changing. Very amateur.

I was going to say exactly the same thing but didn't because I'd be flamed for being negative. It's criminal to have such a wonderful subject and ruin it with crap editing like that

Barney, if your response to people's comments (the ones you don't agree with) is simply to put 'in your opinion' next to loads of them you are just being petty.

This is a public forum and people can choose to comment as they see fit within your guidelines. If you didn't think this stuff had merit you wouldn't have put it up on here.

An awful lot of the stuff you put here just isn't very good. This is one example of that, in my opinion

No Barney, You just don't take criticism because you are convinced you are always right and you almost never are.

This stuff is entirely subjective and almost no-one here thinks it's any good but you in your supposedly elevated position just can't get that. It's not like it's the first time.

If you are going to put stuff out there then some people are going to disagree with your opinions and their opinions really are worth just the same as yours.

In reality you are just being a bit childish

Barney never likes people who disagree with him. These shots are just pants as anyone with half an eye can tell.
