What Adobe should really fix is the glitch on the CC 2015 opening page where registered users are greeted with a "trial" page (for the software they have paid for) and announcing 32767 days to join CC before their trial expires.

Wow! Almost 90 years of free trial!

Way to go Adobeā„¢ !!

On Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview (219 comments in total)

Just one look.

That's all it took.

No matter how fantastic.

It looks like plastic.

On Lens Rentals Canada closes its doors article (43 comments in total)

It is always sad when a business shuts down.

The pillars of the endeavor are the services that prop it up: good staff, good customer service, great supply chain, reliable and timely deliveries, and the most essential of all rental entities... the repair crew.

Canon Sentinel: "The enemy has released a 24-70 FF f2.8 VR lens! I think we should abandon our yoga position on this fence..."

Grand Canon Moff Tarkin: "Evacuate? ... In our moment of triumph? I think you are over estimating their chances!"

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (361 comments in total)

Sony is a great innovator. Really good product.

But a bad parent.

It makes, then abandons many orphans.

A mount.

E Mount.

What's next? Full Frame?

You bet.

Joachim Gerstl: You are saying the photographer forgot to put the reflections of the 3 birds on the water? Your revelation cannot be UNseen, once you get to have a look at it again...

ElviraGrey: How was everyone made "aware" that the photo is a composite? Please point the section of the article where it says so. Thanks.

What's in a name?

A lot.

Years of respect rightfully garnered from satisfied customers.

But it all could just be blown away, like a whirlwind overnight, by doing a few silly things... like plopping an exquisite wooden grip on a rebadged camera and trying to get away with a 300% price hike.

On Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners article (468 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Every serious brand new camera has a RAW converter for FREE in the bundled software.

It's time to dust off those camera's software CD's and give it a try.

If you don't want to be a monetary zombie, there are other ways around it...

.

Yes some do, some don't. Some may even point the user to Adobe...

Sell outs.

But Canon and Nikon have good RAW proprietary software.

People are just too lazy to try it out.

It is this laziness that Adobe wants to cultivate.

And they are successful.

To a point.

On Canon PowerShot G3X real-world samples posted article (158 comments in total)

Any shots using 600mm with extended arms?

(Canon's response: You should buy our EVF add-on, for only $999.95)

Or wait for our pop up EVF to come out in the G9X...

Sad day for originality.

As pointed by another poster down the thread:

http://joelrobison.com/when-imitation-stops-being-flattering/

Take no part in unfruitful works... but rather, expose them.

Thanks DPR, for exposing them.

The time spent on the computer just trying to find where you wanted to focus, after painstakingly downloading the MegaBlob file and running trough the timeline... is far greater than the quick moment of NAILING THE FOCUS in the first place.

The invention is good, why not... but the cumbersome action of plodding trough miles and miles of image stream file images defeats the purpose of a steady fast workflow.

May work for some, but not all will take it up.
