On Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge camera review post (88 comments in total)

My Nokia 1020 and 7D, great combo that works well together. Shooting raw with both, has its benefits.

mailman88: I'm waiting for Canon to do the impossible.
A new 24mp cropped sensor, noise free up to 3200ISO, blazing speed, sharp AF....under $1800.00.

Keep pimping the A6000, but haven't seen any BIF pics from the A6000 at 400mm or more.
My 7D and 400mm can match anything from the A6000.
The A6000 is great camera under 150mm

kewlguy: Canon is not sleeping - they just don't pay any attention.

As long as I can shoot 6400 ISO, print 13x19 and sell the print....I'm keeping my 7D.

I'm not riding the Sony wave. I need affordable options at 400mm and over.

russbarnes: I thought Canon are meant to have resolved banding? The tulip image is horrendous. And they want how much for it? It's a premium product which has such limited use, the market they should be making this for will surely be incredibly disappointed.

On f/22 challenge (12 comments in total)

I'm raising hell people....Disqualified twice in this challenge for not having a foreground, middle and background, even though my challenge showed it.
Almost half of these challenges should be disqualified like mine.
Lets see if they are.

Franz Weber: I simply can not see any improvement over the SH1:
Where is the tiltable screen? Where is the micro usb charging plug?
Where is the brighter lens?

I liked the SH1. But this cam does not improve in any way.

Wrong Franz....same as the E-M1

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 (366 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.

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.
