Even back then...we see a dog picture. Boring dog pics of old are worth money now.
So save your dog pics forum, wait 100 years and some family member will sell them for big money.

On Adobe celebrates 25 years of Photoshop article (355 comments in total)

Hey Adobe...if you want to survive another 25 years, you better change your business model.
Why be part of the photography processing business, when you can "own" the business.

Long term profit is better than short term profit and the "key"... is to keep existing customer and add new customers. Now you're like the cable companies, were the customer turn-over rate is high and profits fluctuate.

MnTony: OMG - this whining is still going on? Folks, the adoption rate for CC was much faster than Adobe predicted. They aren't going back. Buy into it or don't - you have the power of your choice. But whining every time Adobe is mentioned is getting very old. Alternatives may pop up, and competition is always a good thing.

Well, you're wrong. We don't have a choice. Buy into it like you said, or use something else. No other option
Adobe should have two choices.. 1. The old way for the rookies. 2. The new way for the pro's. Let market and the customer decide which way is the best. I'd betting the old way wins out.

mailman88: When greed and quarterly profit margins are important than the Canon customer....I can't call Canon serious!

But hey Canon ...put the customer first, profits will double. I know this business model is not in your vocabulary. Make affordable products, have everyone buy it....and you'll own the Camera World.

On Hands-on with Samsung's new NX500 article (336 comments in total)

Samsung’s new NX500 shoots 4K at half the price of the award-winning NX1
Besides 4K, specs have also been greatly enhanced. It uses the same newly developed 28MP back-illuminated APS-C sensor and DRIMe V image processor that are in the NX1. It has a burst speed of 9 frames per second (fps), native ISO range of 100 to 25,600
The NX500 comes in black, white, and brown. It will retail for $799....now, lets wait for the review.

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)

Canon's EDSEL called EOS-1D C will die a slow death. I saw this coming when this camera was first introduced. Reduce this camera to $5000 and still this camera will not sell.

mailman88: It's simple Canon, build a camera noise free at 6400 ISO, fastest AF in the business and sell it under $1700....then you'll own the camera world.

Howaboutraw....A7s at 12 mp, any picture at 6400 looks great. Now use a 24mp sensor, 6400 looks average.

mailman88: If you're old enough to remember...the 10D and 20D were used by the professionals. Nobody mentioned Full Frame
Now...when I shoot 6400ISO, print 13x19 and sell the print to a customer using my 7D....nobody mentions full frame. Everybody is happy.

Dash....I got noise reduction down to a science.
Not bragging... even topaz emailed me about my noise reduction here in DPReview in a private message

Got to admit it....that smile is priceless and worth a million bucks (to someone?)

This is funny.....the monkey is more popular than the photographer and now, both are famous.
I'm going to the zoo to tomorrow to visit the primate exhibit. Hopefully I can get a primate to shoot a selfie of us together....I'll be famous too and RICH!

I just heard on the news.....the monkey just hired a lawyer and he's suing the camera owner and Wikimedia.
