On 10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren't Photoshop) article (451 comments in total)

I think for most folks like me and millions of others, photography is a serious hobby. PS is really not necessary. I am so glad I learned on PS. Now I am finding I can switch much easier.
So! Really thanks PS
But! No thanks PS.

It's not for me at this point. But, if I start traveling allot again. It might be? And the new Canon lenses are insanely good. Just a joy to use.
If you could pair a good crop sensor body with it??? hint hint Canon. That matched up with this beauty, then Wow...

Who cares. I urge users to look elsewhere. I am, and have found support from others. I predict DXo and others to fill the gap extremely fast.

I personally do not have any use for them now. Great program, but without support and availability it is useless to me. Availability not associated with the cloud that is.
Just not interested.

Really nothing. I will switch. Not a problem for a hobby photographer. Have fun in the cloud. I am keeping my money and feet firmly planted on the ground.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)

I never knew there were so many company's offering software for still photos. Just an amateur I will have no problem changing it seems.

garyknrd: Has anyone used Photoline? Since this pay by the month does not interest me I searched and found this.
Sounds promising.

I mean download...LOL

I feel the same way Danny. I am a birding photographer as a hobby. And this looks very promising to me. Will check it out for sure.

Fred Mueller: I am sure Adobe has looked at the numbers, but may be underestimating their success due to piracy. The broad user base they enjoy, and mostly due to the excellence of their products, has a huge foundation partly due to piracy. It is part of the establishing mechanism. I see this where I work at Berklee College of Music where very few of the students can afford many of the hugely expensive software products in music creation software, especially sample libraries, and so ripped copies are common. But I fail to see how any of those vendors could even begin to get established if the ripped copies were not circulating basically as loss leaders ...

That huge shadow user base will now dwindle for the CS products - couple that with the "every other or every third gen. user" who will decide to exit purely due to cost (because this IS an increase for them) and you wonder how long CS will maintain its "must have" status for professionals

I agree. I also see this as an opportunity for a 3rd party to establish it's self as a player. Interesting to see which company will emerge the victor. A new and unknown company or a current player. As a retired old guy it is fun to watch. I would hate to make my living doing this kind of work, with such a mess unfolding.

Sounds interesting. I just visited there site. I think I will up load a trial version to see if it will do what I want. I am an amateur with minimal needs.

With the replacement rumored to be in a month or so? I take this as there is no replacement coming. Interesting

On DxOMark examines lenses for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III article (60 comments in total)

I am a Canon shooter ( wildlife only ) and am chomping at the bits for Canon to get a high pixel density sensor out. There is a difference in resolving between the 7D I have and the IV. On the new lenses the 7D is much better IMO. But doesn't have the AF to make the lenses shine? A 38 M.P. sensor FF wow... or equivalent in cropped. wow. Nikon has the better camera IMO for wildlife.

On Pentax offers K-30 in a variety of colors and finishes article (118 comments in total)

Pentax isn't all bad really. If the colors help the bottom line I say go for it. Pentax AF and QC. As of the K-5 is just horrible. So if it helps get out of a rut. I am all for it. It will never be a contender again. But I am hoping for a sound product. Then I am back in.

I live in Thailand most of the year. Here in many big malls.. Canon has a big space rented for you to come in and try out there cameras and lenses. They do not sell anything but you can try, and look at everything. Pretty amazing really. Before I buy I always go to the Canon store and try it out in the store before I make the purchase at my local Canon retailer.

I am fairly new to Canon about 1.5 years now. How do they stay on top with this kind of offering?

On Think Tank releases three accessories for camera bags article (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

MPA1: Think Tank seem to live in a world where 'carry on' is a size only issue rather than a size AND weight issue.

What use are carry on bags that weigh 80% of your weight limit before you put so much as a pencil in them?!

+1
