ezradja: Probably it's just me, but I find the selections not very good anymore. Probably because of new breeds of serious compact camera such as x100, rx100, g1x etc even pentax q or nikon 1 are more interesting to me these days...
Hmm, are you after good photos or "cool new tech gadgets"?
Nikonworks: Most retailers hold a straight forward 'Inventory Sale', of which this article clearly seems to be, except the straight forward part.
DPReview please take notice:When I was a kid 'slot cars' were the newest and 'biggest' thing.Stores opened up just with slot car race tracks. It was fantastic but very short lived because the market place became overloaded with slot cars and accessories to the point the kids could not keep up with the market.The whole market folded like a deck of cards.
Of late, you, the editors are doing the same thing here at DPReview.You have too many Final Reviews to post before listing 'Old cameras under $1000'. You are reaching in all directions, phones, tech, cameras, etc.You are making this site unwieldly and soon ambiguous.
You better get together and focus on your mission.
At the same time you can discuss formally thanking me for my 'Real World Samples' suggestion.
Aren't we high on ourselves?!
g7star: Buy Now link needs to be corrected for Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. Thank you for the article.
Michael Foran: Can you employ a filter that removes all the bitchy, off topic, and misleading comments from brand fanboys?
thought that's what those moderators were for?
kinglau711: More importantly, do not forget our right to delete our profile !
I don't post here anymore since you can't delete your post and your profile !
But you ARE posting on here, in news comments!
And I doubt you'll ever get the option to delete your profile on here, facebook doesn't allow it but they allow "deactivation" of profiles. And DPR allows you to delete an OP original post if no one replies to it within a few minutes I think.
You'll never be allowed to delete a post or remove all your posts with your profile because said posts are intertwined with lots of other posts.
Does this version of LR support non-dSLR video files such as .MOV ? LR 4 doesn't.
It feels like I just gave Adobe $79 a few months ago.
John Crawley: It is the first step in pay to play. it has been roumored for quite some time that a lot of software companies want to head in that direction. Pity.
A few years ago Microsoft said that Windows will eventually be an internet based software with no Windows files on your computer. AND Adobe said the same thing a couple of years ago. They are following through on their plan.
ilysaml: Nice, I've been waiting for this long time.
The cam has only been available for about 2.5 months, hardly a "long time" for a camera that will probably go at least 2 more years before being replaced. If you want a brief hands on review soon after a camera can be bought, visit another website that does such brief eviews.
iShootWideOpen: Isn't Aptina 1" sensor in the nikon 1 system?
yes Nikon1's use Aptina sensors.
SeeRoy: Can I run this beta in parallel with LR4?
And be very careful because there's a good chance a beta catalog won't be upgradable to full LR5. They put out warnings to not do anything important with their beta versions.
Idreamphoto: For people that know adobe release model wel, any idfea when this could be the final release?
From Adobe's download page: You can download the beta and use it until the product expires on June 30, 2013.
That means it will be launched on July 1.
(unknown member): These new releases are too frequent and there are not enough new tools to merit it.
$125? Where do you live? The LR4 upgrade was $69 and full version was $150.
digitant: I am still using LR3 on a Mac (2012 MBA/13/8/512). Trying out LR5b I notice two things:
* the size of the app: it has grown from 110MB to 1.1GB !* it still is no true full screen app on Mac OS X 10.8, despite what Adobe says.
Surely these are not show stoppers, but they matter to me.
Incorrect. The download includes both 32 and 64bit from what I remember reading. It's more like a 700 MB installation file.
madeinlisboa: 5 new features and a whole lot of dough from customers. Nice one Adobe!Still using CaptureNX + ColorEfex....
"Features" and "updates" are very different. An updated portion may not add any different operation or result. Changing programming code isn't a "new feature" to me. How things look in the program isn't a new feature to me.
Scott Greiff: Come up to me wearing these and I'll kindly ask you to remove them in my presence. Refuse, then I will leave.
If you are in a public space, you have no rights to privacy. That is very well established. Do you do the same if a person is holding a camera? And you tell the person to not take pictures if he/she tries? How childish.
robogobo: No way am I going to tolerate someone in my presence with one of these obnoxious, intrusive apparat on their face. No way.
It is no different than that person having a camera in their hands, taking photos or recording video. Grow up, dude.
idbar: I thought Samsung and Sandisk had already products out there. What's new about the Trascend product?
Probably the price. Samsung and Sandisk have high profit rates/markups.
Alberto Tanikawa: I just don't trust Transcend products. I tried an sd from them, it died on first use, and returning it for an exchange from Newegg would have cost nearly as much as the product itself. Never had such problem with Lexar, Sandisk, Kingston, Delkin, PNY, Hoodman, or even Kodak.
You know, ANY product you use has the possibility to not work when it's brand new. That does not mean ALL products or units from the manufacturer are bad. I've used 2 Transcend CF cards for over 6 years now without a problem. The one memory card I had that went bad was a Kingston.
By your logic, if you had a new tire that happened to go flat within the first few months and it was made by Michellen, you'd call all Michellen products not worth buying, right?
DaytonR: Interesting news , this card makes a very discrete cost effective back-up storage solution !
Flash memory is NOT anything to be used as backup storage. Plus at $110 for 64 GB, that is not very economic compared to 1 TB external drives that are now back down in the $80 range.
