As fast as photographic technology progresses, it seems like Apple could produce an Aperture update, half as fast as they do iPhone and iPod updates. Or could it be the fact Apple doesn't see the need for DSLRs any longer (ie the new iPhone), so why make high end programs for its users? By the way, that Apple exec is at the top of my "He's An Ass" list.

jkoch2: Might a contemporary DSLR or camcorder, with a plain f/2.8 lens, shoot video comparable to what Kubrick needed for candlelit film shots in 1974? Didn't the Barry Lyndon scenes benefit from a wee dose of supplementary lighting anyway? There were at least a whole lot of candles. A single candle, on the other hand, would be a difficult (lense flare, blowout) shot, except maybe for a facial closeup. Its hard to photograph both the moon against a starry sky too.

There was no artificial lighting used in that scene.

Forget just mobile photographers, what about all photographers? There was nothing mentioned about a new Aperture. Since Jobs passed away, there seems to be an almost complete focus on iOS devices and applications, and at the same time an almost complete abandonment of the higher end software that made Apple.

All is well, I understand. Rules are rules.

Ford vs Chevy, Blondes vs Brunettes, Yankees vs Red Sox, Ducati vs, well there is no competition for them. And Nikon vs Canon. I seriously doubt that anyone squabbling about who's is bigger and better, can actually take any of their cameras to its limit. You use your camera and I will use mine, because I couldn't care what you spent your money on.

On Just posted: Canon EOS 6D test data and further impressions news story (206 comments in total)

I shoot and print photos on the spot. Literally people pay me for the photos I had taken just minutes earlier. I was looking for a new camera and the 6D seems to be just what I need. The ability to transfer images to my computer and print them without the need to have my camera connected via USB, using native Canon software is a blessing. I tried EyeFi and it wasn't fast enough and didn't allow for 2-way communication with my computer. I plan on pulling the 6D trigger really soon and I'm looking forward to it. I have noticed that the longer I wait, the lower the prices have gone. Maybe it's due to it constantly being bashed for its initial cost?
