On Sony shows off upcoming full-frame lenses at Photokina article (320 comments in total)

as a Canon user I always thought that if I ever switch systems would be a Nikon.
I m not so sure anymore, Sony turns out to be a innovative player.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

A camera it is not only the sensor, and to me it looks like a very capable model.
If one can not make good images with a camera like this, then the camera it is not the problem, rather the photographer.Personally Im happy with my 5dmk3s
although I admire what other companies are doing with their products.Well done ( it seems ) Canon !

razadaz: Prior Photoshop cc we were told that if you upgraded to CS6 you would be eligible to upgrade to CS7, but we would not be able to upgrade from CS5. As such many made the upgrade earlier than planned. The following year they changed the rules again. The one thing I have learned from that is that I cannot rely on information from Adobe. To me it was a case of lesson learnt.

On Adobe launches Lightroom for iPad post (131 comments in total)
In reply to:

smatty: The CC renting software discussion aside, what serious photographer would really use an iPad to integrate a photo workflow?
We have color calibrated and profiled monitors and printes (labs) to get a consisten color and contrast results and now we want to trust an unpfofiled iPad display???

I got a replacement unit from Apple the other day and held my old and new (replacement) unit next to each other inside the Apple store. The new display was at least 800 kelvin warmer than the old one! This will seriously flaw your results when the file is loaded back to your Mac.

To me LR for iOS is a more of a toy than a serious solution.

also, other than advertisisng photographers, which wedding photographer would actually like to edit along with their clients?? It doesn't look like an actual scenario to me..My artistic edits is my decision and not my clients.

In reply to:

razadaz: Basically the bubble has got as big as it is going to, and that is what many of the postings here have said in one way or another. We have seen it happen with computers to the point where Adobe can only continue to exist by renting their software as they have nothing new to offer that would be considered worth upgrading for. The party is over and it is only natural that sales will fall back to pre-digital days. Years ago Nikon would produce a new pro model every ten years, and even then many photographers would fail to, or even want to upgrade. I think companies will either need to downsize their sales targets or look for other markets, and I think they have already realised this.

well said !!!

Adobe is trying to capitalize on the VSCO ''film'' trend.
Pretty good though, I like it, even though they come late at the party!
