About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

epozar: Flash sync 1/180 sec :(

Truth be told, I can't remember the last time I took a Flash pic :o, but, having said that, it's always nice to have it there, just in case :)

Peter K Burian: This is supposed to compete with Lightroom????

I use a Windows PC but many of my friends loved APERTURE .... Does Apple believe there's no demand for **advanced** photo editing software??? .......... More likely, they realized that they cannot compete with Adobe. ... Lightroom 5.6 for Mac is available now http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5822

No idea when Lighroom 6 will be available but it should be fabulous http://photorumors.com/2015/02/27/adobe-lightroom-6-hdr-merge-video-leaked-online/

I don't have Yosemite, Peter, but I use Aperture, almost exclusively, for the IPTC portion when sending pics to magazines, newspapers, et al. I'm guessing, that "PHOTOS" does not have that capability?

@ Mr./Ms/Miss Wenmei Hill …

" I threw …. my phone and my wallet and keys into the empty compartments or the exterior side pocket."

Now, that move is, IMO, just stupid and asking for trouble. I mean, if someone nicks your "hot" looking bag, you're hooped :o Always keep your mobile, wallet and keys separate from your kit.

Oh well, Tom, you know how those 4th floor photographers are? ;-)

Well, I haven't heard back from the WPP people so, I'm guessing, my pics didn't win just because they were bad(der) the ones that won :)

Me thinks, Paul, K_K, is a bit of a DPR voyeur :o ….. in the sense that, whilst he's been a member (?) since Sept 2011 he/she has only interacted three times ;)

Cameron R Hood: It's NOT the first telephoto * designation...it's the first DFA* (full frame) designation...not that it's complicated or anything, but you'd think a photographic geared site could get it right....

Cheers,
Cameron

But, Cameron, it's been a long, long, long, long time :) and, I think, they're only going to stock the lenses in stores that are located in underground malls :o …….. :D
