On What The Duck #1390 article (41 comments in total)

I never realized people in here can be THAT dense. The comments... Oy Vey!
It's a comic strip people. If you don't find it funny, move along...

charliechappy: I've just been to a "Comsol"-seminar and learned how they make use of a subscription-system there. And this would be the only system i'd ever use:
You pay for a lifetime-licence but get only 12m of full support. After that you may pay 20% of the price again for another 12m of full support. If you don't, your programm will still work like before but if you find any more bugs you may keep them for your own. Considering that the software has major updates onces every 6m this sounds like a fair deal to me. But seriously: 20€/m is way to much for me.

Most CAD will work that way... It's still a ripoff for a single reason. The new version files are always proprietary and won't open with any of the old versions. While this is fine and dandy and one could argue there's new functionality and so on, somehow they leave out the "save as older" options out. In a supply chain, when one upgrades everyone down that chain has to as well...

riveredger: Thinking aloud ... I think the way a lot of these posters feel is the way most people feel when they get the bill from their wedding photographer

How many weddings did you shoot riveredger? Just curious...

erichK: I already find Adobe's monopolistic and innovation-killing ways of doing business reprehensible. I buy software to do, and continue to do, a job for me. I want to be free to move on and choose another application and vendor when appropriate.

The degree to which corporate behemoths like Adobe and Apple have been able dominate the applications market stifles competition and new ideas and already ties the computer user into endless upgrade treadmills.

Having to continually pay "rent" to feed such bloated megacorporations will only make things worse.

I will be looking hard for alternatives, and urge others to do so.

Apple? Everything on my mac is paid for and ready to go and work even if I go to Antarctica for the next 5 years (which I should, just to avoid interruptions and catch up with all the work)...

In reply to:

William Carson: The above poll is frustrating in that only one option can be chosen. Actually, all except the last choice I would be selecting:

Having to repeatedly pay to retain access
Adobe's pricing is too high
The need to occasionally connect to the Internet/Cloud
Uncertainty over future of Adobe or pricing

Right on!

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

Way to alienate your legitimate users Adobe. The guys who did not pay will STILL not pay.
And this supposed difficulty in supporting two versions is total BS. Who the hell asked for the Creative Cloud to begin with? 10% of the customers? If it's soooo difficult and nightmarish to support two versions why not drop the one that's used less?
There's no truck in the market big enough to fill the gaps in Adobe's logic.

P.S. If LR goes to the cloud as well I'll bid goodbye to Adobe forever. I've always faithfully updated both LR and Aperture. Time to go mac only I think...

"images are sharper and appear more three dimensional" ? (D4)
Never laughed harder in my life! Truly worthy to be published a day earlier (on April Fool's)

I hoped to finally have Focus+Release priority in AF-S mode on my D3s... no such luck... :-(

Looks mighty tasty... it will go well with my 85mm f/1.4 Sigma (another cracking lens)

On The iPad Workflow post (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark Kneen: Still yet to work out why anyone one really needs an iPad other than to say ooohhh look at me with the latest kit. I mean, really, 64 GB of storage for £550.... you're 'aving a laugh surely?? Get yourself a half decent laptop with 10x storage and faster for the same money plus it will actually DO things rather than just show stuff.

I sold many weddings by simply showing our portfolio on an iPad. It has proven to be one of our best selling tools ever. I believe the same can be done with any of the half decent and big enough tablets out there, we just happen to have an iPad (first generation). Any laptop pales in comparison as a sales tool.

In reply to:

ZeevK: I really do not understand the need foe new release to add support for new camera. This can be easily accomplish through external files like .dll or similar. It's only a new swet of parameters to be used by existing algorithm - not dedicated algorithm for each brand or model...

They addressed some of the speed issues as well...

In reply to:

Kassra: enough already with that same old body shape... this is NOT the most beautiful or the most functional or the most practical body shape a camera could ever have. perhaps the folks at the design department need some imagination?!

Hope they never change the shape too drastically... It's like the 911 of cameras... (unfortunately only in terms of design and not on "performance")

If Leica would have pulled out a similar package at the same price, everyone would say "Wow! What a bargain"...

In reply to:

Photozopia: I'm in for one .... BUT ..... first I gotta email Apple to make a B&W only Cinema display. Couldn't possibly process the M-M output on a full colour one! Keeping It Real Leica!

(Sarcasm alert - in case you were wondering!)

Hey, such a display would be awesome to watch timeless old flicks on... stuff like City Lights, The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca...and so on...

In reply to:

motobloat: At last, a camera for hipsters living off of their parents' money! Pretty easy to afford with a $10,000 a month stipend from dad, and soooo retro! Does it do instagram filters too?

Seriously though, besides hipsters and the insanely wealthy, I can't see much of a target market for this specialty device...

Well Leica is German and all Germans own now a second property. It's called Greece.

Before all of you jump at my throat, I've seen these EXACT words on subway ad billboards all over London...
