photogeek: Still no GPU acceleration. Epic fail.
GPU acceleration wouldn't help much with the Camera Raw pipeline and that's why they haven't pursued with a lot of effort. GPU only helps with a very limited set of tasks.
duncanidaho25: I've never used lightroom. I've always used photoshop. Is there a benefit to owning both?
If you intensively process a few images a month, PS is your tool. If you need to moderately process thousands of pictures a month, Lightroom is 10-100 times more efficient.
LiSkynden: "...and share your digital photograph library"So now we have to share the whole libray? haha.
Can you zoom while cropping already? Sorry im still on LR3 so i dont know if its on LR4.
Crop enhancements in this released are nicely summarized here:
bills_pix: I wonder if it will be subscription only. Adobe is not making near enough money off it at $99 to keep them happy. Prepare for the worst with Adobe.
No, because your license is perpetual. You can choose to upgrade annually if you want, but if you don't your existing software doesn't stop working.
raztec: The mad rush to increase corporate profits. Keep making minor updates and try to render your previous versions obsolete.
I have LR3 and am doing just fine thank you.
By the way, if you think this is a minor update, at least read this before you make that judgement:
You're missing out on a couple of amazingly-helpful features in LR4 - like making local white balance corrections which is a huge help in mixed lighting. LR5 adds a couple more, similarly helpful features that I use almost non-stop.
What a worthless loser.
Aside from the fact that this is immoral and produces lousy photography, what happens when he triggers a medical response in his victims? I can get opthalmic migraines from regular on camera flashes fired directly at me. Debilitating, but not dangerous. I avoid studio strobes like the plague. What if he triggers a seizure in someone?
Lee Jay: Well, these are only JPEGs, but I can't push the ISO 100 shot far enough to show any noise or banding in the shadows or dark clothing.
Well, these areas started around 8 counts and I pushed them to 140 counts. I don't see any sign of banding and noise is quite minimal for such a big push.
You go try it. Here's a link:
Go push those clothes and rocks as far as you want. They aren't black-point clipped.
Alwynj: New sensor? Ok, if you say so. I was looking at replacing my D7000 with a 7d or upcoming 70d or 7d mark ii. However, if this is Canon's take on advancement then I'll stay put. It's said this sensor will do duty in the '70d' as well and as far as I can see it's no where near the D7000 sensor. I want 7d focus and speed yes, but wouldn't like to sacrifice IQ and DR
"I didn't exaggerate at all, as every word I said was backed up by measurements and examples."
Not from this camera.

Lee Jay: $70? I built one of these years ago from stuff lying around my house!
Try a few seconds - literally. I just added a plate (from a u-bolt) to an existing single flash holder. Bingo - now it holds two flashes.

TB Rich: Will it still feel like a cheap plastic piece of junk?- I expect so.I was gobsmacked when I first picked up an S3 after all the hype. Perhaps the consumers of today have no need for build quality and things of a tactile nature.Happy with my decision to go for an HTC One, although had the Xperia Z had a more ergonomic feel to it I would probably have plumped for that, very solid.
So what? Put it in a case. I did, and I don't know anyone with an iPhone that doesn't have it in a case.
iPhones (and iPads) don't work for me when they're brand new. My S3 works perfectly and reliably.
This matters? It's a sheet of glass on the front and whatever-case-you-choose-to-purchase on the back. This is the same for all of them.
My safety glasses are plastic and can survive a direct impact from the pointed end of a slag hammer against an anvil. Aluminum-magnesium would be penetrated and cracked from the same impact. Point being, not all plastic is garbage, some of it (polycarbonate in this case) is tough as hell.
knize10: What will be the life expectancy of this new Made In China gadget., 3 months, 6 months.....What another waste.
My last one lasted 7 years and was still working when I upgraded.
Snore....so basically no change from my S3's almost-useless camera.
I'll keep my S3, and my Elph 500HS, in the same pocket. And I'll continue to use the Elph and not the S3's camera.
capelyons: This is a very beautiful video! What would be interesting to me is to see what the video and images looked like prior to the "post-processing" of this video so as to see the differences. Thank you much for providing this video. I'll bet its nice to be in a vibration free environment.
So go download them. They're all available.
