On Phase One's Capture One Pro 8.2 software now available article (83 comments in total)
In reply to:

OBI656: CaptureOne is a great application for pro photographers however to install CaptureOne and specifically do an upgrade it is absolute pain.

I have NOT seen application in history of Mac computer being so terribly difficult to install and upgrade.

Why they are doing this so difficult for end user is beyond to comprehend.

I've been using C1 on my Mac for many versions and have never had any problems installing or upgrading to newer versions. The auto check looks for upgrades on start up and you simply click on the upgrade. Your browser goes to C1 and you d/l the new one. I usually close C1 while the new ver is downloading and install the new ver. Finder will ask to replace the old version.

On Nikon D610 Review preview (380 comments in total)
In reply to:

Torresigner: I bought the D610, after several years using the D90... happy years even with a DX format camera.
In just two months with the D610, I had many troubles, several fights with Nikon, two returns, and ONE switch to Canon.
Nikon is history for me. Now I'm happy again.

I know a guy that had a bad 610 right out of the box. Sent it back and the next one sent had the same problem. Neither would auto focus.

I like The one numbered 12, Megachile fortis, Badlands National Park, South Dakota. Sort of looks like it is wearing aviator glasses. :)

RanReh: I agree with earlier comments about having to use Facebook to access details concerning the Canon workshop programs. That situation is so dumb ! I do not subscribe to Facebook and will not anytime in the future. Canon should be aware that not every person on earth is a Facebook fan.

I also am getting tired of being directed to respond to something by going to facebook and log in. Don't use it and don't want to.
