mantra: hi
are you sure there 2 version ?
cc and v6
when can we download the trial version ?
thanks

There's a trial under "download".

By the way, that link doesn't exist if you are logged into adobe.com. So log out if you want to see it.

Antony John: There's a trial download?
Everything I've tried takes me back to CC.
Annoying.

Try logging out of Adobe.com.

fuego6: Bah... typical Adobe minor adjustment features that should just have been made available in an incremental update. How about allowing floating toolbars (like the rest of the CC package)? How about beefing up the library function? How about speeding up the export option (takes FOREVER to export photos)?

See Ya LR... I'm out!

Ah...see, that didn't take too long!

Your biggest issue isn't necessarily everyone's biggest issue.

The list will soon be available in many of the usual places. Personally, I like the Lightroom Queen site for this.

Minor? There are hundreds of new features, some of them quite major.

Heh...number 8 reminds me of one of my favorite images that I took.

Lee Jay: "Users of the 5DS and 5DS R have much higher, stricter standards. So we set the ISO cap in accordance with what we felt that they would demand and require. "

Stupid. Cost yourself a sale with me.

People with higher demands can cap it themselves.

Same pixel size as 7DII, sensor 1 1/3 stops bigger. Should have been at least 25,600, if not 51,200.

Okay, 1) for a guy named "Thoughts" that wasn't very thoughtful. I'm basing a purchase decision on the artificial limit they imposed in the camera, not on the comment by the executive.

2) Using exposure compensation and pushing is a pain. While it works (sort of), it affects the way tone curves are applied in JPEGs, and it affects the way raw's look because not all converters have a straight 2^x pushing/pulling exposure slider. Further, it makes it hard to evaluate your exposure using the in-camera histogram or even using the look of the image on the LCD.

Stupid move by Canon and a stupid reason why they did it.

In reply to:

Lee Jay: The drone risk to aircraft is exceeded 10,000 to 1 by the bird risk to aircraft. The drone risk to privacy is likewise drastically exceeded by binoculars and long focal length cameras.

To put it mildly, drones are a way lower risk to your happiness and health than some people make them out to be.

Neither do drones.

If someone wants to spy on you, there are far less obvious ways than hovering a quadcopter with a fisheye camera on it a few feet from your house. Like binoculars.

They're very quiet. Much, much quieter than a flock of geese, or a car rolling 25mph, for example.

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (318 comments in total)
In reply to:

mgrum: "Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"

That's pretty much all Canon have done for the past 6 years ;)

That isn't true either.

100D and 700D
60D and 600D
40D and 1000D
300D and 10D
20D and 20Da
60D and 60Da

And then there were all the "N's" like the 1DIIn and all the Rebels from the 550D through the 700D which were all very similar, all had the same basic sensor, and most or all were available at the same time.

Yeah..that was a strange comment. How about the 7D versus the 60D versus all the Rebels with the 18MP sensor?

Joins other masterpieces: 17mm PC (wow!) and 8-15mm Fisheye zoom (another wow!).
Well done!!

I don't care much for "eye candy" but I like number 9 because it shows something happening.
