Lloyd709: I bet all those stuck in the mud staying with CS6 are starting to feel just a little bit jealous now!!!! Anyone guess what waterfall that is?

Razadaz... saved? I've had both LR and PS (fully updated and on mobile) for about a year and a half now. Thats $179.00. How much was CS6 alone?

In reply to:

photomedium: Great camera in absolute terms but I handled at the store and it's way too hefty for me for an APSC and in my mind it has created the expectation for the D810/D750 successor.
I understand the price policies but If I have to carry the weight of an D810 and pay the money of a D750 I want full frame.

I'm sure it will sell well to those looking for a wildlife/sports camera as it looks like a great package however there are a lot of us ex D300 users who have moved on. I cant imagine carrying around this big a system ever again though.

badbob42mk1: and the pros will be using the Nikons and Canons, and making money and making a living, whilst peeps on here, wondering if its even possible to take a picture with these cameras

Actually those who enjoy driving are in things like VW GTI's, Focus ST's, BRZ's, Mustang GT's, Z28's, Boxters, etc. Lambo's, Ferrari's, etc. for the most part are for the well heeled collectors these days.

fatdeeman: If there was any doubt about how pretentious this was, the fact that it costs MORE than the model with an LCD should tell you all you need to know.

LOL, 2 mouse makes me a "stalker"? Do tell, what colour is the sky in your world?

Miron09: Leica produces luxury items (Rockwell names it "jewellery"). One should not underestimate the difficulty of doing this. Please remember how miserably other manufacturers failed, trying to copy the recipe (Hasselblad). Knowing too many disappointed Leica camera owners (since the 70s !) and their troubles with shoddy production quality, I´d never buy a Leica body. Still I respect their business model and their lens designs.
As a Olympus user, I really like the Nocticron and the old FT Panaleica 25mm. Outstanding lenses. I reckon they were made by Panasonic, but I don´t care. The quality is fantastic.

Simply quoting anything Rockwell says is all we need to know.

So 5 responses on a product you feel is "pretentious" and have no interest in buying... well played, you fit right in with the DPR majority.

In reply to:

Sitting Duck Photos: The criticisms leveled at this camera aren't surprising and are retreads, offered up by people who deconstruct cameras instead of being people who snap pictures for enjoyment. So there's that.

Pretty much the definition of DPR :)

Max Iso: Only $1500 ? .......

From a guys who "previous" gear reads like last weeks dirty laundry. If you really have gone through that many bodies, I suggest that you have wasted a lot more than $1500!

FantasticMrFox: In contrast to most of the commenters I'm somewhat disappointed - how is this a review? Felt more like a lesson on the history of local Blues, but I hardly learnt anything about the camera.

@ Mistajolly - she clearly states in the video that she normally uses a film Pen F

So because you like to use a "rangefinder style" of camera, you are a hipster? Unbelievably funny!

Great video, thank you!

In reply to:

Don Sata: Sony is really doing a great job refining their products and pushing the boundaries of the industry, if only they cared to release a decent line of APS specific lenses and made a couple of ergonomic adjustments I would consider them.

Not much different than Nikon... unless of course you are into cheap kit zooms.

dialstatic: In spite of the anger levelled towards Google for giving this away for free (?), I downloaded and tried it. Very happy with it, some of the filters etc. are similar to what takes me 10 minutes of dragging sliders around, and some are beyond my capacity to achieve manually (mind you, that reflects on me, not Photoshop ;-). Thanks Google!

I purchased the Nik suite years ago. Think I paid around $300 (on sale) back then. More than got my moneys worth out of it already so no anger here. The Nik tools allow me to do in 10min what took an hour plus in PS before. I'm sure someone like Kelby can do it all manually just as fast but, I'm not him!
Its a great tool and its free... dont see what the problem is.

MAKfoto: I work in Light room 5 only and have older version of Nik color effects pro only(it only updated once), will this update my older paid one or install over it with updated one?

Ummm... yeah, okay, sure whatever.

Uninstall your old one and install this new one.

gbdz: This set is great fun. When I considered buying it, the AlienSkin won because of the special price (thank you Sue Bryce!) and the look of some of the vintage filters I really liked. Downloading it now...yesterday four attempts failed because of 'unknown network error'...but no sweat, I know what it is, I've tried it and liked it.

On AlienSkin there is a lever you can use to trim down the 'filtered look'...normally 60-70% is just about 'it'.

Which is according to my taste and good enough for me.

Same transparency slider is in all the Nik filters. Not only that but using UPoints, you can selectively apply the filters to just the parts of the image you want.

In reply to:

nwcs: We all knew that Nik was dead when Google bought it. A few minor fixes and one project that was already nearly done when they bought it. Nothing done to further the plugins or do anything new.

It's a good bargain for those who never had it before. A lot of us moved on to newer and better tools. It's a shame... Nik had so much promise. Ironically it would have been better if Nikon had bought them. It would have been a win-win instead of a smash and grab.

"Ironically it would have been better if Nikon had bought them." LOL, yeah because Nikon is well know for "great" software!

In reply to:

Denis of Whidbey Island: To those who lament having recently paid the silly small price of the suite since Google has owned it, be aware that Nik charged some of us a lot more ($100 each for Viveza and HDR Efex) when they sold the plug-ins individually.

Exactly! Paid full price way back when and dont regret a single penny spent; it was more than worth it then and a no brainer now.

Complaining about something thats free... only on DPR.

In reply to:

Retzius: Will they release a pink one and call it the QT?

They could include a Hermes bag, a Gucci wrist strap, and a LV lens cloth and sell the package for $9999; at select boutiques only.

So thats 5 comments on Leica prices in the last 24hrs... get a life maybe?
