<quote> One final point I'd like to address is the misconception that you have to be continuously connected to the Internet to use a CC application. </quote>
Why, oh why, did they wait so long before saying this? Were they afraid of being thought patronizing or condescending?
It took them years before they revealed the enigmatic machinery of importing files into Lightroom. It was never that unfathomable in any case.
Remember Lightroom version 1? IT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.
For other reasons requiring too much space to treat at this time, I dislike Adobe. It doesn't surprise me that almost 600 comments have exploded around this topic in such a short time.
I have CS5. For me CS6 offers almost nothing, except for the charcoal GUI, which should have been implemented 18 years ago, when I started with version 4. PSE has had a dark GUI for years. Why has PS been so long in following suit?
Yesterday I downloaded GIMP. The price is right and the developers have a good attitude.
Kevin Sutton: Excellent article but I find I tend to agree with the 1950's American publishers regarding the photos. Some of the subject matter would have been much more interesting if it was in focus and not blurred etc. Maybe I just don't understand Art...
I have an IQ of 155 and I have no trouble telling art from a hole in the roof.
NDaniel: Glad I find this article, as a beginner my self, I found that interact closely with people while doing street photography is very important, smile to them, and sometimes show the shoot to them will bring intimacy, and I just notice (oh man!!!) I have one shoot that quite similar with his shoot (Kid and his gun) although without the gun it self.... love this article

Some of your photos are real winners, like the ones cited below. You definitely out-Klein Klein.
They're selling ABC on Amazon for 35 cents.
I hope this triggers an EVF stampede.
(A feeble OVF would satisfy me.)
dopsgp: Fujifilm, please make a fullframe X body. There is market for a better, more reliable Leica M.
Another good idea. Fujifilm, are you listening?
It's time the clacking, jolting mirror left the scene. IQ will benefit. And subjects will become pleasantly oblivious.
Tom Caldwell: Just shows that people don't mind big lenses on little cameras. Used to be a lot of fuss over the idea that if you make a small EVIL-type camera then you can only fit small lenses to it.
Yes, let's have some compact primes.
Can you use it to take pictures?
HozicEmir: I will cry hard if this will not be available in K-mount.Than will hate sigma til the end of time.
If this will be made in K-mount no mater optical quality I will buy one.
Ha ha! You gave me a laugh!
AbrasiveReducer: The problem with all these schemes is that the guy who steals your camera/computer/stereo doesn't know he needs a password.
Haw haw! That spoils everything!
Sh]t on that.
I'm right this minute hammering my scope sights into plowshares.
joe talks photography: Pretty impressive. Maybe it's me, and I am not criticizing any technique in capture, but, some processing looks to be needed for greater contrast in some of the shots.
I'd own one if the OVF wasn't such a premium priced item. Maybe a third party one will come along.
Argh! Do I proofread? For "I like than snappy vernacular style" read "I like THAT snappy vernacular style."
Some web-posted prices deserve to be described as "get the eff out of here."
Being a Noo Yawnker, I speak a language that is a combination of Porto Rican, Yiddish, Arabic, and maybe some English.
pannyics: It's ironic that Nikon put a 1" sensor in their interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras and an APS-C sensor in their point and shoot
Why don't Nikon run their project plans past us piranhas fisrt?
ijv: Get that lens up to an acceptable competitive level and we have a winner. Image stabilized and at least 2.0, but ideally 1.8. Also a 50 mm version would be a dream.
Make that IS, 2.0, and a VF.
The lower left-hand corner of the STOP sign pic shows amazing detail.
Ha ha, I like than snappy vernacular style.
PhotonTrapper: Again... No challenging low light conditions, that a larger sensor is supposed to cope with better. I'd think it's the one type of shot you would post, that potential buyers would be interested in seeing, instead a bright daylight post card scenes that virtually any modern camera is able to capture. And, again... no "macro".
Some high ISO examples would not come amiss. Can you add some? Thanks.
photo perzon: I put a $ 200 Voigtlander glass and metal OVF on the A and it is fantastic. Nothing better than clear glass. Looks just like the Nikon.
Just what I was about to suggest. $450 is an insult to the world economy.
Is DSCF0135 a father-daughter shot?
