On BSI Boss? Sony Alpha 7R II added to studio scene article (394 comments in total)

Raw: D810 vs A7R2 vs 5DR:
I'd pick the Nikon for sharpness, noise, resolution, color.
All good. Very subjective.

Rumor: it's so big they are having trouble finding enough glass to make them?

The Nikon mirror up is ideal for me. Raise the mirror. Take the shot at the right moment.

On Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners article (481 comments in total)

desaint: Oh my freaking g#d...a lot of people complaining here..10 dollar a month three beers less and you are there.
I'ts a ver expensive product to make,you pay thousands of dollars on camera gear but you don't want to pay for your software??
Normal you have to buy it once in the three years and now you pay monthly,i think at the end it's about the same...
And for the illegal downloaders there is enough other software builders you can
use for"free"and then can complain about it:)

The adjustments are held hostage. You still have your images but if you leave CC you lose all the adjustments which is potentially thousands of hours of work. I have 900,000 images in LR now. If I go subscription and they dramatically raise the price, I'm in an awkward spot. No question the price will go up.

In reply to:

Niklas Ramstedt: Am I the only one here who likes LR and PS CC and is prepared to pay for software?

Concerned about the future when they inevitable raise prices. We'll lose all the adjustments to our images if we then drop out.
That is a massive loss.

Mike Greer: What a bunch of whining. PS averaged upgrades every 15-18 months at a rough cost of $180. At a $10/month subscription, after 18 months that's $180. Roughly the same as upgrading your license. But I didn't upgrade to every new version you say. Neither did I. I upgraded every over version. So the subscription was a price increase for me. That is, without taking LR into account. When adobe added Lightroom for the same $10, that pretty much evened things out for me. I pay way more for Web based subscriptions that aren't as critical to my business as PS and LR. Netflix is $8/month and it's dirt cheap and it doesn't make me any money. $10/month for PS and LR is a joke. That's more than fair. It's actually underpriced IMO.

For those talking about C1, go to their website. Notice anything? Notice that you have the option of subscribing? For the time being you can buy it. Buy why offer a subscription if you're not intending to go that route exclusively at some point? Software companies cannot survive with people upgrading every blue moon. So they're going this route. I have no problem with it. Especially in this case where the product is so critical to my business and the subscription is ridiculously low.

When everyone's on subscription, the price will go up.

I bought Photoshop 1.0 and have upgraded to every version until the subscription became mandatory. I'm not doing subscription.

I wonder what Adobe is thinking now.
They have very expensive software and an unpopular subscription service.
They have provided a fertile soil for competitors to flourish.

I bought Affinity Photo last night; so far I like it a lot.

Why Mac?

Because the raw conversion is done in the OS.

OK, Sony is starting to look interesting...

Direct link | Posted on Jun 10, 2015 at 22:53 UTC as 181st comment

Not a camera that interests me.
I find black and white conversions of images that were originally captured in color are just fine for black and white work.

I agree with the author. For serous photographers photo is not enough.
I have moved my 820,000 images to Lightroom and am learning to like it. Some. I"m sorry they dropped Aperture.

The technology keeps rolling forward...
Do we need it?
Will we buy it?
We are lucky to have clever and inventive engineers.
This is Canon's way of saying, "hey, we're sensor tech leaders!"

I also loved Aperture, but am learning to like Lightroom. It's raw conversion is quite good. I'm manually converting 800,000 images from A to LR and enjoying the process of revisiting older images.

On Toshiba announces world's first SDHC card with NFC article (52 comments in total)

NFC - for those who don't know (which is probably most of us):

Near Field Communication

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are similar to near field communication on the surface. All three allow wireless communication and data exchange between digital devices like smartphones wirelessly.

NFC is an offshoot of radio-frequency identification. NFC is designed for use by devices within close proximity to each other.

Try raw and 3200.
All look good, the Nikon perhaps a bit better.
Ignore JPG images as different manufacturers apply differing degrees of sharpness and noise reduction making a comparison difficult..

On Behind the Shot: Clouds over Skagsanden article (117 comments in total)

Preferred the image before it was cropped. I don't think there was "way too much foreground" in the pre cropped image. The final image has dramatic light but is not quite compelling as a composition, in my opinion.

Thanks for posting your image and your thoughts, though.

I'm sure she will hate that.

Her writing is fine. Nothing wrong with "puke". The focus of the discussion is way off track.
