Marshal: Thanks again to tmoynihan for this very helpful review. I certainly appreciate it! :)
Hey, don't forget:That 'Adios Adobe' is mine.But you can use it anytime.
You did not include PhotoPefect, one of the best programs available.
This has no meaning for me as a professional photographer.
Do they have no faith in their own product?
Reminds me of the last US presidential election, one candidate 'loaned' his/her own campaign $8 million instead of spending his/her own $8 milion outright to try to win the election.He/She lost the election because of this one issue in my opinion, he/she was not willing to back up his/her own candidacy with his/her own money.
Sounds that this new product's designer has no faith to put up his own money.Without Youtube I wonder if they would have even made the promo video.
deltaskyking: I was walking down the street the other day and I saw something interesting and I decided to take a photo of it. After turning on my Sony NEX-7 I got the following message on the screen: "Access to this Camera has been denied, please contact Subscription Services!" What the ....! Worse yet is that I was unable to download from the camera any images I'd already taken.
After rushing home I contacted Subscription Services, or "SS", whereupon they informed me that the $1200 camera that I bought a year ago now will not function without a monthly subscription fee! First Adobe and now Sony?! I hastened to my closet where my Canon and Nikon gear were vaporizing, apparently because I had failed to pay a continuing fee to those companies as well!
I woke up in a start! It was only a dream - or was it? Borrowing a theme from Apples' 1984 commercial, we need the hammer wielding athlete to come crashing in and hurl her hammer at the "Orwellian" face of Adobe! NO SOFTWARE FOR RENT! EVER!
It is people like you who help keep life 'livable' at just the right time.
Thanks, I needed that!
Paul Gath: I've happily bought Photoshop and Lightroom and upgraded through the years. My most recent upgrade was to CS5. I then joined the CC subscription for a year on their half price special offer, mainly so I could learn the different products, but to be honest my good intentions didn't materialise and I have barely looked at anything other than PS and Lightroom.
Once my subscription runs out I will buy the upgrade to CS6 and then stop. It will be some time yet for other products to meet the niche with such high functionality, but CS6 will see me well for many years to come.
Now compare the Adobe route with that taken recently by Google when the bought the Nik plugin suite. I never thought I would say this about Google, but they have done their customers proud in this particular product, cutting the price and bringing it to many more users. Now if they could only get round to paying some tax in the countries they operate in....
You are forgetting in the future ACR will not be upgradable to your CS6, just as Adobe has done in the past.
P.S. When any company pays a tax, it is you the consumer that is actually paying the tax. It is time to wake up!
DXO & PhotoPerfect is all I need.
I have been ahead of the curve regarding Adobe.When my editions of PS could not update to a new ACR I said enough is enough and I decided that I will not buy PS or any update at anytime.I now use DXO, PhotoPerfect, and others and use PS for Text.
They aren't getting my money any more.
It is now 2013, in case you did not notice.
Nikonworks: Rumors on DPReview?
A new low!
"We've done it before. Our policy of never revealing information given to us under embargo has not changed."
Who mentioned anything about embargo policy?Please stay on topic.
Publishing rumors previously does not make it right.
Rumors on DPReview?
kewlguy: cool, silver star for an expensive compact with mushy images...
Why don't you reply to his comment about 'mushy images'?
That is why you are here, isn't it?
Nikonworks: Live View image recording time is outrageous, and for this one issue, how in the word does this camera, which I use everyday, merit a Gold Award?
What is really 'Telling' about the reviews and the reviewers here lately is which posts they decide to comment on and which they stay away from.
So far, no one can dispute my comment about Live View recording times. They can't agree with me because they gave their Gold Award to the camera.This just goes to show the capabilities of the reviewers more than the cameras, in my humble opinion.

I do not see anything that makes it seem fake.
1) it was a square thin box meaning it would land on its top or bottom. any video that was 'upside down' could be corrected.
2) that leaves 4 surfaces to have a 'view' of the suroundings. This woud lead me to believe we saw at most 25% of the video, allowing the chance of the other non-camera sides to have the 'view'.
3) The video is about 3 minutes long, a day has 480 '3 minute segments'. (the shipment might have taken more than a day or two - even more 3 minut segments). We viewed only one of these segments which was edited. So in the can should be a great deal of footage that was discarded.
I don't see a 'fake'.
I see the work of a genius whether it is fake or not.
Brilliant project design, tooling, and execution.
Fantastic and my sincere thanks for showing me a hidden world.
How many comprise your production staff?Went by too fast to count.
What was yout cost per print at the conclusion?
Perfect in every way.
Her beauty captured by the photographer in such a manner leaves no need to say anything about anything except 'Perfect in every way'.
A gross defamation of a lovely women.
The pic caught my eye, but on closer view the diamonds on the lipsare a gross commercialization of the Human Form.
Just downloaded and ran the update.
Now I am ready with my D7100 and P7700.
Won't need gear for a long time (except for that Pro pocket video camera that was reported recently in the News section - sounds remarkable).
