On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (321 comments in total)

Forget waiting on the DPR review. If you want it and it meets your needs buy it and you will not be sorry. Do not let the negative posts in the Canon Forum sway you as they are typical for haters who are either jealous or trolls.

The G1X MK2 is a VERY capable camera and a worthy one to replace the MK1 version if you are looking for a camera if this type.

On Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G review preview (402 comments in total)

Not going to pay that much for a 58mm prime lens. No one should unless they do alot of 58mm work! My 85 was worth it but a 58mm?

On Adobe now offers Photoshop and Lightroom for everyone news story (625 comments in total)

I have been with Adobe from the beginning but will not upgrade again. I want to own my software. Same with MS Office.

Adobe must be hurting trying to sell this new cloudy software or they would not be offering a discount.

Adobe is also guilty of letting scammers steal our CC information and I will not allow that to happen to me. Lets all stick together and we can get Adobe to change their mind!

On Sony DSC-RX10 preview (725 comments in total)

In the intro it says it does not come with a charger but in the Specs it says it does!
So which is it?

On Sony A3000 preview (678 comments in total)

It might look like a DSLR, does it focus as fast as a DSLR?

I owned many of these but the one I remember the most was an early Kodak that would burn though a set of batteries in only minutes!

Mostly becasue of it tiny little sensor! The bestter P&S cameras are all using LARGEER sensors, Nikon need to rethink. BIG opportunity missed! Now all these poor saps who got this system will not see it progress.

The best of the best for less than the cost of a medium cost Lecia lens!

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (470 comments in total)

The review is OK but you can't find the camera for sale anywhere.

Way too slow to spark any interest.

On Leica announces $1300 special edition 'G-Star RAW' D-Lux 6 news story (266 comments in total)

Just because you people can not afford it, do not make fun of those who can and do! Not my cup of tea either but for some $1000 is less than pocket change!

I love Leica but not going to do a f3.5 to 6.4 lens at this price.

I think people will figure out how to steal Adobe while it is even on the cloud. They will loose a lot of users and some paying users.

As far as going to other software, ALL the software people will be doing the cloud sooner or later. Just a matter of when

In reply to:

GWYNOXY: The price difference of Adobe products in Australia made me choose to never support such outright greed. This has become such a cancer in my view that I have actually rejected a free copy of photoshop. This company deserves to go down in flames... lots of competitors out there who can put out equally good products with the support of the photographic community. This also answers a recent question that I had... how come LR is so cheap? It is of course to get you locked-in to their workflow methodology then introduce this monthly licence model. Aperture is good enough for me... maybe its time for Apple to target the windows users in light of this new Adobe model.

but yopu get all those great government services! Not to worry as will be joining you, in the toilet, soon!

So what Adobe is basically saying is we do not wish to spend the money on making out software more pirate proof so we will burden the users with the cloud crap! I have paid Adobe thousands of dollars over the last 20 years and they are biting the hand that feeds it!

Peter K Burian: Of course my CS6 would be fine for quite a long time, though without the new features. I would need to upgrade when I buy a new camera in future, one where CS6 does not support the RAW format.

After a year or so you would not get any more RAW updates, period.

In reply to:

Slynky: I don't use the CS enough professionally to warrant subscribing monthly. I might use ID and Acrobat Pro many times a year and IL a few times a year. Photoshop is the most-used. But, unless I need something special, I use PS less and less because LR can handle photo tweaking well enough.

SO...

They can count me (other others like me, probably) out of their future.

You can't convince me the restructuring is nothing more than a way to increase profits. And as far as pirating goes, I would imagine there's no way to stop that anyway, so, please, quit with the BS excuses.

The only question I have now will be to watch and see if someone else will step in and take away part of their base.

Pirating is THE major reason they do this. I hardly can blame them as after only 6-8 months 40% of the users are doing it with pirated software! YOU would do the same so get over it

It really does not matter as to what the user wants, adobe and Microsoft will be shoving this cloud thing up our butts no matter if we like it or not. What I do not like is that there are times in the field that I need to do Photo Shop and do not have an Internet connection. In this case PS will be useless for me.

There is no choice as they are not asking!
