brownie314: I thought Sony had the curved sensor locked down.

You can't patent the "shape" of a sensor any more than you can patent the "shape" of a basketball. You can get a patent for a particular way to design or produce the curved sensor. But the idea of a curved sensor is open to anyone who wants to manufacture one.

WoodWorks: It appears that the panoramic Boundary Warp feature is also not available in the standalone LR 6.4 version, only with CC. At least it doesn't show up for me. Can anyone else confirm? I see no mention of this omission here or anywhere on Adobe support forum.

I agree with Rdefen that adding features in between major releases could expose Adobe to potential liability is a preposterous idea. Apple seems to be able to just that with almost every minor OS update without a shareholder revolt, and many other tech companies do exactly the same. It may be true that Adobe never added new features in the past. But the code for Boundary Warp is done and integrated into the CC release. Had they wanted to add it to the stand-alone version, they easily could have. The only reason they didn't is because they keep hoping that those of us who have been holding out will eventually relent. Yeah, sure.

Wait, is that a flying pig I see?

My already dismal opinion of Adobe's marketing tactics has sunk even lower. What would it have taken to include that feature in the standalone product? A few minutes of coding. They are pathetically transparent in their disdain for those of us who chose, for very good reasons, to buy our software rather than succumb to their hostage-ware scheme.

Gordon W: Any bets on how long before Adobe buys this product and kills it like they've done with others before?

And for their next Kickstarter project, they'll ship you a charred stick and a piece of antelope leather, so that you can draw your own images from the hunt.

tojkr: In olloclips panorama photo, how come the valley in the middle with direct sunlight looks dark?

It's the color of the terrain, nothing to do with the lens. The foreground is lighter-colored soil.

Hylton Herd: where is this?

I'm not the photographer, but I'm pretty sure that's the White Rim Road in Canyonlands, Utah. It's a 100 miles of that. Just an awesome place to ride.
