Do we know if these big printers have one line for mat and glossy black ink, or finally separate lines so we don't waste ink? Do we know if these will also ship with 2/3 full starter cartridges? I like what I see about image quality. I hate how epson nickle and dimes to death on ink.

brownie314: Wonder how long it will take CaNikon to realize there is a market for this type of camera. With cell phones destroying the bottom end of the market, it should be obvious that they should be looking for more high end markets to get into. This is an obvious one. But, not products yet.

The A was way overpriced when released. It had a viewfinder accessory that was way overpriced. And Nikon chose to release it in the Coolpix line of cameras which made no sense. Ricoh's GR was about 300-400 less expensive on release. Still, the A is a great little camera. Simple to use, excellent image quality, small, light, perfect for street work and landscape alike. An A mk ll with improvements and priced right would be a good thing. The Leica is great. But I wouldn't lay down so much money for a tool that is evolving rapidly. The paradigm which leica used to be has changed. I'm also on a tight budget. Leica has no place in my future.

NZ Scott: Question for Creative Cloud users: If you don't have an internet connection, does Creative Cloud still work?

I ask this question because I'm often without internet when travelling - sometimes for days and days at a time.


I use the ps+lr subscription. The yearly offer at 11.99 euros a month. The software is on your computer. I think you have to be connected once every 90 days to have adobe verify whatever. But you don't need to be connected to the internet or even have the cc panel open all the time.

On Fujifilm X100T Review (679 comments in total)

IvanM: I absolutely love everything about this only concern is that the images look so soft compared to the rest in the DPR test charts....not sure if it matters much, but.....

I agree. I compared to fujifilm x-a1 raw 1600 and it's night and day. X100t looks soft, blurred. Also, the girl at night on the Image Quality page, man, the quality of that image doesn't look very good. Maybe as a print it works, but looks kinda bad on my screen.

Menneisyys: greatto see fuji's x-trans cameras easily beat even the Sony 24mpixel aps-c sensor noise-wise, even after downsizing the Sony images.

On my screen the x-t1 images look like a nasty blur...i was looking at RAW files up to 3200. They really look out of focus. The sony a6000 images had a lot of color noise easily handled in pp. Compared with Nikon d750, also their d610. Full frame nikon images on a whole other level.

Samuel Dilworth: Barnaby, you have surpassed yourself with these photos of the execs. They really are good.

wonder what that exec was thinking as a fuji x100s was being used for this portrait and not a canon ;-)

Are these real world samples all jpegs produced by the camera? Also, is this how the x-a1 kit is being sold, with the 18-55. Here, it's the 16-50. Comparable image quality?

Dolan Halbrook: It seems to have been mostly missed but this update adds camera profiles for pretty much all Olympus m43 bodies, the E-5, and XZ series. Great news for Oly shooters.

It's nice that adobe sees fit to update acr in CS6, but I've been having trouble with acr and so have some others. It's been goin' on a while now with no solution yet. See the link. Exposure slider not working correctly, and no lens profiles available either. Hope you oly shooters are having better luck.

NJOceanView: From what I can tell, this is best for people who *don't* have the prerequisite CS/LR products already (CS3+). The link below from DPR shows that if you *do* have those prerequisites, the $9.99/month price is guaranteed for life.

nothing is guaranteed for life...not even a cc subscription...

Karl Summers: I'm new to Lightroom 5. I just ordered the boxed version which probably isn't the 5.3 version. Will my copy of LR be eligible for a free update?

They also told us to buy CS6 if we wanted to upgrade to CS7.
